Bindings that will fit my Nordica BadMind?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

This will be my 2nd year skiing after learning last year on a rental. Got good enough to do black diamonds here in the northeast by the end of the season. Wanted all mountain/park skis cause I wanted something light and want to try to hit some of the park. So I purchased this in 163 cm.

I'm running low on cash so I found these cheap bindings on amazon...question is will this be okay for me and will these fit on the Nordica Badminds? I'm 5'9 140 lbs size 8/9 sneaker size.

Well, the one big problem with that binding is that you've got yourself a ski that's 85mm wide and those bindings are 75mm wide.

So you'd have to add a few bucks to get brake arms that fit. These guys have a 88mm set that you would need:

Oh, and other useful questions :
Have you stopped growing yet? And more importantly, how are your ski boots?

Yup I've stopped growing, forgot to add my age. I'm 25. I haven't gotten my ski boots yet. Everything last year was rented. Right now my only purchase is the Nordica Badmind skis. I'm probably going to just rent boots for this season since I'm pretty strapped for cash. 

 

So basically unless I add brake arms I need to get a binding that is at least 85mm wide?

How about those ones? Those are 90mm right?

Yes those Salomon bindings will work, but keep in mind you still need to pay $30-40 to get your bindings mounted to your skis, and they're going to need your boots to fit them to the skis.

 

You'd get a lot of advice around here that would say get boots instead of skis. I hope that you're not going to rent a pair of boots each day you go up right?

we used that binding for kids under 100lb. I think you need something more substantial than a 10DIN binding.
