What binding for my ski?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I have recently bought new Armada AVRti (178cm) skis but I dont't know which binding suits them most.

I was thinking about Marker Griffon or Marker Squire, both with 110 mm brake. Those two cost maximum I can afford to pay for binding. But I don't know if the brake isn't too wide, because my skis are 98mm wide under the binding (which leaves 12mm).

Or you can recommend something else in this price range (maybe Salomon?)

 

I think my style of skiing is called generally "backcountry" - I ski on pistes (mostly aggresively), but when there is opportunity then I go freeride. But no extremes (jumps), if you know what I mean, just for fun. I expect from binding that it will work fine covered in snow. Some "classic" bindings I experienced had trouble to put on if I fell in deep snow.

My height and weight are 178,5cm and 75kg.

 

Thanks for advice.

At least the Griffon, not the Squire. Other options Salomon Sth12, Tyrolia Peak 12 or Attack 13 and the Look/Rossi PX12. All shoud be had for $199 or less.

I would skip the marker griffon and the Rossi Axial2/ Look PX, some people find them hard to get back into in soft snow. The Salomon and Tyrolia heels are easier to deal with, in my opinion.

Ok, so if I go with Griffon, that 110mm brake would be okay?

And if I go with Tyrolia Attack 13, would 97mm brake be sufficient even though my skis are 98mm? I hope there is a little spare space so I don't have to bend anything...

I will decide probably between those two, based on price and availability in local shops.

Either width brake will work with minimal, if any, bending of the arms necessary.

Ok, thank you all, I have just ordered that Tyrolia attack 13 with 97 brake :) (it is a little bit cheaper than marker and I don't think I would know the difference - plus imho it has nicer design)

 

EDIT: Do you happen to know if it is adjustable? I mean my boots have 318mm, and what if I buy boots with 315mm?

Good choice, you will be happy. No problem with adjusting down to even a 310mm shell.
