Need to remount on 10mm difference?

post #1 of 6

Looking at a pair of used skis with bindings mounted for 295mm sole. Mine are 285mm. Need to remount? If so will new holes be too close for comfort? Thanks!

it would be helpful to know what kind of bindings are on the ski.

It should be adjustable. A remount to reposition the toe and keep you on the boot center line will not be possible. The toe would need to be moved back 5mm, that's not gonna work. If a remount is needed, I would move the heel forward 1cm and re-use the toe holes.

Your bindings are likely to fit your boots so you probably don't need a remount to go skiing. Just adjust to fit your boots.

 

Some skis are very sensitive to binding placement, many tolerate a wide range. 10mm boot length difference means your smaller boots will be 5mm forward of the factory specs. 5mm is not a lot. I like adjustable bindings and need movements of 10 to 20mm to be able to honestly feel significant performance differences. Some skis I've moved even more to get where I liked the feel. I personally like placements a bit forward of factory settings - but that's just me. Ride the skis as mounted to get a baseline feel. Remount if something feels wrong.

 

I don't stress binding location as long as I can get my boot safely in the binding. I don't give up on a ski until I've played with binding location (and tuning, waxing, different snow, etc). As long as things are close (5mm) it is usually the skier not the ski.
