Bindings wider than skis!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I just bought a pair of 05-06 Stockli Sonix, and then went and bought Marker Griffon bindings. They are much much wider than the skis.

 

Will this effect the way they ski? And, should i get bindings that fir the skis?

 

They are 68mm waste (70mm on bottom).

 

Any suggestions for what bindings to get on these skis? I'm intermediate, 240lbs, 6'4 male.

 

Thanks!!!

I'd take the markers back and get look/Rossy px12s or FKS120. You might want to get the 14 din models at your weight if youre an agressive skier. They will fit on narrow skis.
Most of your race oriented bindings from big brands will fit on narrow skis.

will switching out bindings on these brand new skis be a bad thing?

Bump skiers have been putting Griffons and Jesters on 62mm wide Elan Bloodlines and other mogul skis that are under 70mm underfoot. Are the the best option? No but they will work. I do agree with the above post that you are better off with the two Look/Rossi binding options along with almost any 14 plus DIN race bindings out there, most of these have a 70mm brake option

Is the ski already drilled and mounted?

Yes, it is drilled and mounted.

Leave it. You can remount but it will probably require more holes in the ski and possibly having to move the location up or back a little on the ski if you go with a different binding hole pattern.  Unless you really have a compelling reason other than cosmetics to change them I'd leave it.

Ah, in that case ski it. Just be careful not to hit what hangs over the edge of the ski on rocks and stuff. With a narrow ski that should be less of an issue. Its possible you could damage the binding, but who knows.
