Salomon Z12 Binding Failure

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of Salomon X-Wing Furys that are now around 5 years old - they've had plenty of skiing over those years - probably more than a 100 days. They've served me well and I really like skiing on them.

 

This past weekend I had what I thought (initially) was an ordinary toe release when I caught the side of a bump heavily. However as I sat up in the snow and looked down I noticed that the toe piece for one of my ski's was sitting on snow by my knee and NOT on the ski any more ! It had completely separated from the plate that slides on to the rails of the ski. It might be that the two screws that hold the toe piece to that plate have both sheared, or perhaps they somehow BOTH worked loose ?

 

This seems like a rather epic failure of the binding - I've dropped the skis off at a local mountain store and they're going to see if a repair is possible (I collected all the parts I could see - including screws, toe piece and plastic plate).

 

Has anyone else experience similar failures with these bindings ? They're the 'integrated/rail-style' bindings that were shipped as a package deal with the X-Wing Fury's 'back in the day'.

 

Salomon has a five year warranty on bindings (according to the website) - but knowing my luck it's probably just expired for these skis/bindings :-)

I got a set of those (X-Wing Fury w/Z12 bindings) for my son.  Never had any problems with ours.  He probably has around the 70 days on his over the past 4 years.
