Where/How to buy Demo/adjustable bindings?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Buying the Rossi Squad 7 for use by myself or a friend on powder days.

 

My friend is planning to buy new boots at the end of the season and also wants to 'share' the ski's with me.  We are also both interested in changing the mount point on these ski's which I suspect may take some work to determine the optimum sweet spot.

 

I therefore also want to buy a set of bindings which can be adjusted (demo bindings).

 

It seems a little tricky to source these online.   e.g. the Rossi Axial120/Look Px12 are available everywhere, but the Axial 120 SPEEDSET, which seems to be the Rossi name for their demo version, I cannot find a single online sourvce to purchase these.

 

My guess is that the demo bindings are mostly sold in bulk to the rental firms and shops direct.   Can anyone point me in the direction of a source (ideally in/around Summit County CO where we will be visiting soon or online) where I can buy demo/adjustable bindings ?

 

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I would suggest the Marker Griffon demo over the Look/Rossi design, it is lighter and IMHO skis more like the retail version than than either the Rossi or even the Tyrolia SP. shoot me a pm if you are interested, Start Haus has some.

^+1.

 

I put the Griffon Demo's on everything (see the pictures on my WB TR from yesterday), and they're excellent. Don't weigh more than the standard Griffon, and work just as well.

 

Since I keep gear at different locations, using the Griffons allow me to take the bindings off and put three pairs of skis in a bag, as they just have the plate left on the ski. Remounting is just sliding them on the rails then adjusting to the sizes that are indicated on the mounting plate

I have the Griffin on a couple of skis and the binding works well. I bought mine from Dawgcatching as he is nearly local for me:

Here is one place with the Rossi in Pocatello, ID:

OK, so the concensus seems to be that I should look at the Marker Griffon demo also.  Will do,

 

as a matter of interest would that plan (swapping bindings around between plates/carrying one binding) work if I had skis with Look, Dynastar and Rossignol bindings - which all seem to use a very similar mounting plate system... ?

LOL !

 

well the idea is to have some variety in the 'powder quiver'

 

We'll have K2 Coomback, Rossi S7 188 and Rossi Squad 7 "190" , all with demo bindings, available - the idea being that we can interchange and ski different ski's depending on mood/conditions/ what we decide we like.   I'm thinking the S7 ay be more suitable for my friend as he's a little lighter, but will only be offering him that if I like the Squad7s better than the S7s in powder myself ;-) - otherwise what was that you said?  

 

"No, "There are no friends on a powder day." :-)

Head Powerail bindings would work.  Here's one.

Both Head and Fischer bindings are made by Tyrolia.

Yeah but not for a ski in this width range.
