Bent Marker Binding Toe in Crash - Advice or Suggestions Please

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My son had a minor crash and it broke 1/2 of the outer plastic off the toe of one of his ski bindings. It also slightly bent the toe, in a right to left direction. After re-bending it back to almost the original position, he can ski on it but some turns or jumps will cause the ski to come off. I took a look at it and it needs to be replaced. The issue is it's one of those K2 "packages" (rail system). Ski's are Apache Radius X M2 10.0. I've contacted K2 and they no longer have any of these bindings. I'm wondering if I can replace them with some newer Marker bindings that are made for the "rail system". Are all K2 rails the same? I've located a set of new Marker 11.0's TC M2's and wonder if those will work. I've also emailed Marker, but have not heard anything back. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here's a better picture than I posted in the freebie thread...which got no response either, but what the hell.

your best bet is to bring it to a marker authorized seller and see if they can get in touch with marker. usually, replacements and/or warranty work will only be done through marker by the dealer, not the customer. we have warrantied or replaced non-current marker bindings and have been lucky in the past getting them from marker directly for our customers.
 

or you may be able to find a pair sold as is without the ski online. this rail set up is K2 specific, no other manufacturer uses this same mounting rail. since the skis and bindings are always sold together, finding just the bindings online may be tough.

Thanks for replying.  After about a week of internet searching and calling, I located a ski shop that actually had a spare set of brand new ones that they guarantee will fit the rails.
