advice on binding for 52mm waist Glitterind?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was going to get the Rossi Magnum bc binding but they're wider than the waist of my Glitterinds. I'm planning on using Rossi X9 bc boots. Rotteffella Magnum bc bindings are 67 mm! Is this an issue?

Any advice would be appreciated.

 

My skis are 68 55 62.

Shouldn't be an issue unless the tech is a klutz.     67mm is just the steering plate.

 

  If you flip the binding over, you'll notice that the steering plate doesn't actually sit on the ski but rather  ~2mm  above the ski, on top of a 52mm wide contact zone, that's also used to hold and protect the heel slide adjuster. 

 

If your skis had been narrower than 52 mm, you would have had to swap out for a NNN BC Auto, the  ski contact zone on those is only 44mm wide.

Excellent; thanks again Cantunamunch. Let me know if there's any reason why the slimmer binding would be better; otherwise I'll go with the Magnum on the premise that beefier is better, even for my modest touring needs.
