AT Bindings for Rossi Experience 88

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for suggestions for an AT binding for my Rossignol Experience 88's. I ski half in half out of bounds. I'm also a patroller and would like something simple to use and very durable.

The Solomon Guardian and Atomic Tracker bindings are probably the most durable and simple to use, but they are heavy and don't feel as good to tour in, which may not matter to you.

What kind of boots? In theory, Solomon's aren't compatible with lug-soled AT boots.

I'm using black diamond Factor MX's. Trying to get down to a one ski quiver.

Look at the Atomics then, but the more you ski OB the more you'll want a lighter binding that's more comfortable to tour, and the more you ski in-bounds the more you'll want burly. It's a trade-off.

I rode up with the Aspen patrol yesterday before first chair.  I was surprised how many were on the Solomon's, but they probably got a special group pro deal.

I've always used Dukes, but that's what I had and they were tried and tested for the most part.

Yep, if you are skiing either at the highest level, you'll end up with two complete sets.  Anyone that thinks they can keep up with the big alpine dogs on tech gear is smoking crack and vice a verse.

:rolleyes  You and I have had this discussion before, and I don't really want to rehash it (and I'm almost out of crack anyway) so I'm just going to (re)post this video of someone on Dynafits up as a counterpoint:

 

And I can't close without mentioning that you are probably forgetting about the Dynafit Beast binding.

Wow, someone can ski powder on those new fangled binders, who da thunk.  Probably wouldn't do too well with that same setup in a rando or a GS race. How long did they last, charging like that?

It's a trade-off.

 

To the OP:  There's no definitive answer on which binding is best for your situation. I'd just buy on price.   Big sales will be starting soon!

Yeah, I expected that you would start up next with the changes and qualifiers.  What you wrote was:

I was basically agreeing with you.  

 

 

Techie's are almost as touche as tele skiers about their bindings.

And I'm both.  :o

 

Pax.
