Need binding advice on my new Kastle fx104 184 cm skis!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I just got a deal on last year's Kastle FX104 skis, 184 cm. I did not purchase them with bindings however. I am going to school in colorado next semester and will be using them for powder and all mountain. I raced for about 10 years and have about 4 pairs of high din race bindings, however I am not sure if they would work too well on a ski I'm going to be shredding powder on. Could I use the race bindings? If not what bindings would anyone recommend that aren't going to cost me over 150-200?

 

here is all my info again:

will be skiing in colorado, in bounds and backcountry

 

I am 6'0, 190 lbs

 

And if anyone has some to sell that would cost me less than retail don't hesitate to include that in your post!

Does it have to be a touring binding? If so your budget is pretty slim unless you can find something used in which case you might want to include your BSL(boot sole length - the tiny number on the side of the boot near the edge of the sole). Otherwise there is nothing wrong with race bindings as long as the DIN can be set at a low enough level and they can accomodate replacement wider brakes. That way you just buy the brakes not the whole binding.

There is no reason not to reuse the race bindings if they are still indemnified, just don't use a plate, just the binding.

Sweet ski! Couple of my bus's are switching out these from the MX108. I still love mine, but the 187's becoming a handful in the bumps.
