Boot sizing and bindings fitment [first time buyer in KY]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question but I am fairly new to this sport and I'm looking at purchasing my first set of used twin tip skis. My question when buying skis is how do I know which bindings will fit my boot. My mondo size is a 26.5 and I am looking at a set of volkl ledges 155cm that have bindings. I asked the seller what bindings came with them and he answered with "They are a rossignol FTX 105 with a speed set plate on them with a 1-25 adjustments on the rear and a-g adjustments on the front." but to be honest this is a foreign language to me. If someone could help me out and inform me on what this mean and what I need to look for, also will these work with a 26.5 sized boot. Sorry for my ignorance on the subject and thank you for any help

Wild guess: there are probably less than a dozen active forum members who could decipher that gobbledygook, so don't feel bad.

I'm pretty ignorant, but I know this much: except for Dynafit and maybe some other AT setups, boot lugs and bindings are standardized, meaning they're completely interchangeable.

If you were asking whether you'll have to move the bindings to fit your boot sole length, I suspect those smarter than I am will need more info.

And if the bindings are old, you need to find out if they're still indemnified; if not, ski shops won't work on them. There are ways to figure this out, but someone else will have to chime in.

I looked on the 2014-15 list and these bindings were not on there. Looks like they are a no go then
