Kastle Bindings

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I skied a pair of FX 94s yesterday which had beautiful Kastle bindings mounted to them. I assume their attention to detail and quality extends to their bindings? Anyone know anything about them?

Kastle uses rebranded Head and/or Marker Bindings of the adjustable (demo) flavor. I don't think there is anything specifically Kastle about them other than color schema.

^^^^ As of this year, all Tyrolia/Head, just rebadged 12's, not demos. Previously, all Markers, rebadged Griffins, I think.

Correct, next year's stuff (and the current demo's) are Tyrolia. The FX94 is an absolutely lovely ski!!! Skied the 186 in mashed potatoes in rabbit ears on chair six... just a fabulous, stable, potato masher! Who knows... maybe.. maybe...  The Kastle/Tyrolia bindings will be available in the DIN 14-16 range (metal housing) as well.

How are Tyrolia products these days? Some have suggested all the manufacturers make equally good products and that the consumer simply needs to throw a dart to select one. I've noticed, however, that Marker bindings appear to be falling out of favor in the Seattle area. Not sure why, but fewer sales people push them compared to three years ago.th_dunno-1[1].gif

I have two sets of Tyrolia bindings, both several years old. One is rebranded "Head", the other "Elan". Both work flawlessly. Then again, I also have Salomon, Look & Marker bindings which work equally flawlessly.
