Ski binding/boot is not centered

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

There is a mark on a boot which should align with the corresponding mark on the ski - originally the binding was mounted correctly.

Purchased new boots and the sole length is bigger - 292 vs 255 mm - the difference is 37 mm. Should I remount the bindings, or it's not worth it? Most likely the ski will be used this season only (kids ski, will need another pair next year).

The first question is were the old boots children's boots or adult boots?If they were children's boots, the bindings are most likely children's bindings and not compatible with the new boot. If they were adult boots, unless the bindings are demo or rental bindings, they will have to be remounted in order to work.

Both boots are children's. The binding is compatible with both - I had to slide the rear binding part to the very end but the boot fits correctly.

If the boot is too tight (or too loose) in the binding that creates a dangerous situation.  You will need to have the forward pressure checked before anyone can say if they recommend skiing on them.  As for the boot being farther back on the ski, that is not as big a problem though not ideal of course.

I'd leave it.

update: It's Salomon c305 binding, it can be used with both junior and adult size boots.

This is what I definitely forgot to check. According to the article it doesn't looks good to me, will bring it to the shop.
Thank you.
