Mounting Rossignol 4s

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello epicski,

Long time listener first time caller here.

Quick intro, I'm an advanced east coast skier who tries to get trips out west, usually tahoe, when the budget allows. While rummaging through my parents basement I stumbled upon my old mans Rossignol 4s's... I would like to mount them with an updated binding (they're currently bindingless) and break them out for spring retro days and trips with my non skiing friends who want to try it. Instead of doing laps is can try to remember how to ski straight skis...

My trouble is finding a binding that will be narrow enough. I have been sifting through the internet, this forum, tgr, hoping to find some specs. I was hoping something basic like an m10 or an axial or a z10 might work, but I can't get definitive measurements.

At the waist the rossi's measure 2.5 inches which I believe comes out to 63 mm -- any knowledge or advice will be appreciated and I accept that these bad Larry's may end up mounted to the wall (way to classic to cut into the adirondack chair)

Thanks folks!

Paging @Philpug and @Rossi Smash to the white courtesy phone!

 

They may be able to steer you to some more period correct retro bindings that are still relatively sound to ski.  As for current binding choices, most race ski bindings will still fit a 63mm waist ski just fine.  Also most others will fit but you'll need a narrower brake than what they typically come with these days..

 

Enjoy, but be prepared to TURN the ski hahaha!

I ski mine with period Look bindings. But if you want a current product, I'd think the Look Pivot 14's should work and look almost right. ( the "wide" @ 90-95mm  brake width ). The 4Sk has a 65mm waist.

I would suggest Marker MRR's

 I know it is not rational but it just doesn't "feel" right to me to  put a German Binding on a French ski.  I like the LOOK's or some Salomon 747 Equipes.   save the Markers and Tyrolias for the Kastle and Fischer classics.  :D.   I see a lot of early 2000's DYNASTAR course skis with LOOK  PIVOT 10 or 12 bindings for less than $75 or so on the second hand market.   these should have appropriately sized brakes.  and I think some of theme are still indemnified.  Phil?

 

the important thing is that you're keeping these classics alive.  put what ever you like on them and SKI.

Crgildart -- not at all! Love it, very jealous of those rear entries redface.gif also looking forward to getting a new appreciation for the mountain, pretty sure they're gonna kick my butt the first couple of days as I try to remember what it takes to make a straight ski go

Royal -- Germany, France, China, I'll mix and match so long as it looks good ; ) I appreciate it though, I'll start looking for some pivots -- always been a fan, kinda regretting not putting them or fks on my super 7s

Here's to a solid winter! Thanks for the input!
