For the Atomic fans and other binding geeks. May I present to you the Atomic Neox EBM

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

These were a mid 00's variation of Atomic's core new binding series, the Neox. When new, these retailed for over $1,000.  The EBM, Electronic Binding Management, was a not only a left binding specific design but also fore/aft because the toe and heel worked together. The pair that is now in my collection is in need of a charge so if anyone knows a shop that sold these or knows of a rep that might have a charger, I would be greatly appreciative for the hook up.

Phil, if you know the voltage, just get a universal charger with multi tips would be the simplest way.  

 

Interesting thought, did they fail safe and open when the battery failed????

these were new in the box, I am guessing the battery just drained. As far as charging them..I see on specific contact points.

Hmmm, wonder if it was meant to be a lifetime battery?  if so just find the right size and solder a new one in?   I guess it would be a PITA i you had to plug your skis in every night to recharge!  :D

do you have the EBM tool? sorta looks like a screwdriver handle with a small attachment at either end (pretty sure one end had a magnet in it), I think it was needed to turn them 'on'. 

 

sorry about the lack of knowledge, I sold and mounted exactly one pair but it's been years.

I'm as big a "binding geek" as anyone BUT that thing is a nightmare. I am ever so thankful that the market didn't head in that direction!

 

 

I really think the rule of KISS applies very well to ski bindings (and most other mechanical things as well). You can have your bells and whistles...(I'd still buy roll up windows if I could)

I need the tool. If you still have yours around or you mistakenly didn't throw it out, I would be greatful to borrow it. I would like to mount these up and ski them.

The tool and a 47 page PDF arrived and the binding works...I feel like Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstein...

So how do they work, small motor adjust the release spring, pressure sensors and some sort of release mechanism, what happens when you forget to recharge and it dies half way down the mountain?

Phil,

 

Please post a video some of us are dying to see these in action

 

The line below should say videos !!!

Could you please show a photo of that magic EBM tool?

And please post that PDF somewhere...

It looks that we've bought the same bindings from the same seller on ebay. Mine are still at the post. So my problems with EBM will just begin in a couple of weeks...

I have them mounted on some period Atomic M:EX's (rock skis). 

 

Tool with magnet for activating binding. Ends are proprietary for the Neox and I don't know of a conventional too that could be used to set the DIN. 

 

It it pretty interesting in that the EBM has some sort of motion sensor so when the binding is dormant, sitting around in the ski rack, it goes to sleep. As soon as the binding is moved, it will actuate and read "OPEN" on the screen. The heel and toe are marked "left and right" so to make sure that the correct heel and toe talk to each other. In setting the rear DIN, the adjustment is viewed in the window err screen on the toe (there is no window on the heel). The DIN can only be adjusted in .1 increments, so if someone is a 7.25, it will need to be adjusted to a 7.2 or 7.3. All in all, It is a pretty neat system.

I thought you might have put them on the release tester, just for curiosity's sake.  

 

And ....oddly enough .... no it's not.
