What type of bindings do I need if I just bought Fischer hybrid alpine boots

post #1 of 4

I just bought these boots http://www.theclymb.com/all/12314/fischer/show-product/136777?f=mi and I was hoping to get downhill bindings... so there are these two options and i'm not sure what would be best.

For all practical purposes, all alpine ski bindings work with all alpine ski boots.  i.e., either binding you link to will work.

 

But there are a couple questions to get the "right" binding:

  • The DIN setting you use should ideally fall into the middle-of-the-range that your binding supports.  Both bindings you link to support DIN ranges of 3-11, which is basically extremely low to pretty high and covers just about everybody.
  • The "90" and "100" in their names (i.e., Squire 90, Z12 100) refers to the brake width and is the widest ski that the binding brakes will fit over.  Yes, the brakes can be bent a little bit.  So the real question here is what ski are you putting the bindings on?

Go with whichever binding you think looks better on your skis...

 

Edit:  Hit "submit" too soon.  Meant to say that with your skis, either binding will work.  There's no real appreciable difference between them.
