Experience 78 binding question/problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I ordered a pair of experience 78 off coloradoskishop.com two weeks ago.  When I got them they didn't come with anything but the two skis.  I also bought the Rossignol Axium 100 L bindings.  The bindings just came with the toe and ankle pieces (no plate).  Can these be mounted by an authorized rozzy dealer?  Will they just need to be mounted into the ski?  I heard these skis come with a certain binding and you can't use any other binding.  Is this true?  Thank you so much more listening and I'm looking forward to your responses!

Plates are usually pre mount on the skis. Binding can still be mounted on the flat ski but check with the tech. Those skis don''t have a plate.

If they don't have the plate, is it ok to mount them to the ski flat?

if the ski is flat, you are fine; you can mount any standard binding on it.   "Flat" means flat, it is just a flat piece of plastic on top.

 

If the ski has what looks like rails on it (i think this what you mean by the plate), then it was a system ski and should have come with a very specific system binding.  (Plate by itself can mean a different thing, but I think system binding is what you are asking about).

 

 

Since you need it mounted anyway, go to ski shop, bring everything you have with you, and they will explain it to you if you are missing anything.

The experience 78 retail are supposed to come with the system.  The place I bought them from must have took the system off or never put it on and they sold them "flat".  I called them up and they said to just mount any binding on to it.  I was just making sure he wasn't BSing me.

 

here is the listing:  http://www.coloradoskishop.com/Rossignol-Experience-78-Skis-2013-p/ra2em06.htm

I don't see a plate from your link. Anyway,just get them clamps on and go ski.

The listing you posted doesn't say anything about system, you may have confused 2 different listings together.

 

And you can't really just take the system off a system ski.  Many are integrated into the ski's construction.

Even if it were a screw in system ski, if they took it off, you'd have holes.  Do you have holes?  If not, then you got a Flat ski.

 

So it looks like a Flat ski, there is nothing wrong with that though, it is actually preferred by more advanced skiers.

 

Anyway, same advice.  go to shop, get them mounted, ski and have fun.
