Bindings without brakes

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi, I am about to buy a new pair of Salomon Z12 STC bindings.  Does anyone have any review on this one?  I  have a big doubt in regards to brakes, because I can only see one image, and it doesnt show them.  The description says "Brake Width: 100mm", and the condition is : "New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable)".  Because of what I read i understand that 100mm brakes are included, do new bindings always bring brakes?

 

Thanks

I am more concerned with you buying shit binding with dubious durability. And yes, they come with brakes.

What do you mean with that? I was told that the salomon Z12 bindings are good but cheap bindings. I am on a budget.

You need to be very light for that binding.  I am 200lbs and would not buy it.  You get what you pay for, so ya, it is a cheap binding.

I'll go out on a limb and say the z12 is a good binding, but I would not recommend it for aggressive skiers. The durability under high use and abuse is questionable.

I bought a pair to mount on my Mantras for a real light setup but as soon as I they arrived I was a bit sus. Hopped on to google and found out that there was enough evidence of breakage and failure for me to rethink use for myself at 220lbs and majority of time off piste.
I mounted them on my daughters skis and have had no probs at all. Of course she is much lighter and is a blue run cruiser.
Cheers
