2011 Rossi FKS 140 XXL Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am thinking about picking up a pair of Rossi FKS 140 XXL bindings.  I would like to put them on a 98-100 mm ski.  I believe the brake width on the XXL's is 115 mm.  Is this too wide for a ski of this width?

 

Thanks for the help!

The Wide (or XL) /95mm brake is a better option with less over hang.

I assume the wide would have to be bent a little?  Can a Wide break be used on the XXL binding?  If so, where can they be purchased?

Probably no bending at all. I just put the same binding (XL) on Rossi Scimitars (98 waist), and didn't have to do a thing to the brakes.

Ok.  If I bought the XXL's can I get a narrower brake for them or should I hold off and try to find the Larges?

I am using the 95mm brake on my 98mm skis w/o issue. Can the 95mm brakes be purchased, yes but they are NOT inexpensive ($130.00), you would be better off returning your 115mm bindings and purchasing some of the 95mm or finding someone to swap assemblies. Unfortunately brakes are not as easy to swap on the Pivots as with other bindings.

Thanks a bunch for the info...have not bought them yet and won't now.  Will keep an eye out for the Larges.  Thanks again.
