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'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.
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..
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 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.
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.
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.
