Binding Recommendations for 173 Blizzard Brahmas

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Gonna be spending the majority of my time charging front-side hard-pack, crud, ice.  I'm 155lbs.  I know a lot of folks put the Marker Griffon which I guess is a free-ride binding.  I was looking at Look PX 12s.  Any thoughts much appreciated.

 

Thank you

Either binding would be an excellent choice, I like the PX slightly better due to the full spectrum toe release.

 

(and labels like 'free ride' on bindings and boots is pure marketing, ignore them.)

The PX 12s are solid but are a PITA to click into/out of for some people and the heel pieces sometimes chees up heels. On hard pack, look at a Tyrolia/Head Free Flex instead. Levelnine has them cheap. Or a Tyrolia Attack 13, which can be had for less than $150.

Thank you for the feedback thus far.  I was curious why most of the Brahma's I see for sale are paired with the Marker Griffons.

the Griffon has close to 30% of the 12/13 DIN market share so we are talking percentages.

Level9 also has some good deals on Mojo 15's.... how would you compare those to the FF or Attacks for the Brahma's?

 

Thanks

Mojo15's are good. Philpug approve.

I have run Mojo 15s, and like them.  At the $125 price point, Tyrolia/Head bindings at 12 DIN or over work for me (170-175 lbs; 8 DIN).  The Free Flex are good racing type bindings for skinny skis/hardpack. 

 

I started using the Attack 13s last year on my "all mountain" skis, and liked the low profile, solid click in and feel while skiing, and light weight (for a 13 DIN binding). 

 

At the $200 and over price point, I'd probably go for Look Pivots or Rossi FKS.  Classic binding for a reason, and will always hold value. 

 

Levelnine is a good shop, or Backcountry or Evo or The House (after getting ~8-12% cash back from any of the latter 3 via Active Junky).  I bought my Attacks from Start Haus during last year's blowout sale...

I don't care much for the Look Pivots. I seem to hit my top sheet more times then not when taken skis off.

Go for the Mojo15s at Level9.  That is a super binding at an incredible price.  Tyrolia/Head bindings aren't "hip" which works in your benefit at the checkout counter.  They're as solid as they come, can be clicked into easily in deep snow, and have a good amount of play in the heel so you don't release in powerful turns.  FWIW, my skis are all either mounted with Rossi FKS or Tyrolia FreeFlex, and I prefer the Tyrolia by a wide margin.

Thanks again everyone.  I'll probably go with the Mojo 15s.

So it looks like EVO is selling the 2014 Fischer (Tyrolia) Attacks for only 140.... I was gonna go for the Mojo15's at Level9 for 129.00, so any other opinions greatly appreciated.............
