Tyrolia's pictorial history 1975-1990

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

 

While looking through Tyrolia's marketing information I stumbled upon Tyrolia's binding history in pictures. Here is a chance to see their models for the 15 years from 1975 to 1990. How many have you had?

I had a pair of the florescent orange and white 390RDs in the 80s. Are those some kind of touring binding at the bottom of each set here? They beat Marker to the Duke years ago! Pretty cool.

Only ONE, 490 RD metal

None. Have only had Salomons and Markers.

I'm a Salomon man damnit!

 

 

 

I did have some Spademans once and do have some Markers and Rossi/Looks that came already mounted on used skis.  I actually do have some Free Flex that came on my iSuperShape World Cups.  But I had never owned a Tyrolia binding before those..  Given the choice I will always pick Salomon.

Skied on one of the 1978-79 race bindings... The 360? It was their race binding... On blizzard Firebird GS and SL skis... Bent pairs in three days... Bindings were fine, but only raced on Rotomat red and black springs. The Blizzards were not mine... Thankfully.

Is Tyrolia an independent company or are they now part of the Head (or someone else)?

 

How many Tyrolia's are in your collection?

Tyrolia is a part of Head. 

 

I don't have an extensive amount of Tyrolia's in the collection, maybe about 15 or so mostly early stuff, there aren't that many variations on the early year models & colors..

I had a pair of Tyrolia Megacomp SL skis with the integrated bindings (late 80s?) black/purple. Were these one of the first integrated ski/bindings? I seem to remember them being marketed as such

Had and have Tyrolia 490.  The metal version, not the delrin version.

post #13 of 22

IIRC, only one & that was a set of 360's prolly 80'-81'.  I will just say that they were not my best binding experience.  Until recently I have never considered owning another pair but I now find the Ambition or Adrenalin on my wishlist.

I do have a sweet Tyrolia jacket :D

 

post #15 of 22

I have a set of 360's and a set of 380's.  Loved my 360's  It is likely one of my favorite bindings, no particular reason other than it held when it was meant too and released when it should.  Easy in and easy out.  What more could you ask.

 

One complaint, brake spring required more muscle as they always seemed kind of wimpy.

I had a couple pairs of Tyrolias back in the early 90s.  Then a pair of D10s in the early 2000s.  Now I ski almost exclusively on Salomon 916s.

 

 

 

Also, wasn't it a pair of Tyrolias that killed Shane McConkey?

Shane used 360-490 range bindings because the design of the heel releases when pulled up from the back unlike newer designs have to be pressed down, something that cannot be done in the air. The binding released as it should have for Shane. Shane was using Tyrolia bindings when he died, the way you worded it is wrong.

Nice find

I have an old set of 350 Racings,

I liked  them for a while..the plastic slide between the mounting plate and heel pice cracked..rather cheap.

The bindings on my very first pair of skis, in 1975, were Tyrolia 190s.  That is the second one from the top, on the first picture. Although the heel piece was supposed to be capable of releasing upwards in a forward fall, It never did and to this day, I do not believe that it could.  Fortunately, I never got hurt.

I washed and waterproofed my jacket this week in celebration of this thread;) ... and the other thread talking about washing gore tex.

Got the '83-'84 AT bindings on a pair of Tour Extremes:

 

 

Interesting engineering:

 

 

Safety straps and center grooves, no ski should be without them. :)
