Salomon z10 binding adjustment question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm using salomon z10 bindings on my skis and I just picked up a pair of nordica hot rod boots with a boot shell of 305mm. I'm currently adjusting my bindings (setting the forward pressure) but I'm have a question. The silver tab that you hold up when moving the rear mount back and forth is supposed to fall in between the hash marks when the boot is engaged, indicating the correct forward pressure. I set the forward pressure and the tab fell almost past the hash marks on one side, still in between them. So I moved the mount back one notch and now the tab is falling almost out of the hash marks on the other side. Still both in between the marks, would it be better to run a tighter forward pressure or less forward pressure? I'm fairly new to skiing so if I made some mistakes in my description please correct me

I would say if both are within the specification, put on your boots, and check too see if it makes a difference actually stepping into the skis versus on the table. 

You may find that one of the settings may not be practical.

I'm not advising here--I'm asking. Am I correct that a higher forward pressure would tend to favor retention and a lower forward pressure would tend to favor release? And if so, could one compensate by adjusting the DIN up or down a half point?

 

What I can advise is to have the bindings release tested at whichever setting you choose. You may find that the release torque is out of spec at one or the other setting. And understand just how much of an approximation a DIN value is, given the fairly wide ranges of height, weight, and BSL used to calculate it.
