Tyrolia SX 10... Need cheap, wide braked bindings for Rossignol Sickles

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey all, I need bindings for a pair of rossignol sickles I plan on buying, what should I get? I saw a deal on EVO for the tyrolia SX 10, i have never bought bindings before and wasn't sure how much price or brand would matter, as well as what I should get for a primarily pow and chop ski... help? thanks!

 

Oh, and emphasis on the 'cheap' part if at all possible, I am already dropping 325ish on new skis and I don't want to be spending 600 for the combo, id like to keep my expenses around 400 or 450 if I can.

 

I am a guy, 5'6 or 7ish and 140lb, thanks!

That is not nearly enough binding for you on that ski, you would be better off buying some used Griffons/PX/Pivots/Sth/ect..any 12 or higher better built option.

Okay, thanks! how about the look PX 12? Also, would used be about as good as new? What determines an all mountain ski's bindings versus other bindings, what should I be looking for? Thanks!

PX12 would me much better. A better housing, not so much a bigger spring makes a better binding, noticeable on race skis and wide skis. A better biding will be laterally more rigid giving you a more solid interface with the ski therefore allowing it to perform better.

Okay, I just ordered the look PX 12's along with my sickles, thanks for the advice!
