"This ski DOES NOT conform to ISO 8364 Standard! "

post #1 of 3

My new MX 88s, still in their plastic wrapping, have a sticker that says:

Quote:

"This ski DOES NOT conform to ISO 8364 Standard! "

 

For installation please regard the following requirements:  

 

For drilling holes, use drill bit with dimension 04.1mm x 7.5mm or (EB004) and adequat (sic) screws with depth of insertion 6mm +- 0.5!

 

We recommend to use glue for the screws

 

A quick google search of ISO 8364 standard (http://www.iso.org/iso/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=39899) yields the following:


 

Quote:

ISO 8364:2007 specifies requirements and test methods for the binding mounting area and free space area, ski bindings and retention devices of alpine skis, in order to optimize the compatibility of the functional unit "ski binding - retention device - boot".

 

 

 

Is this lack of conformance to the ISO 8364 standard something I should worry about?

I'm guessing it means you shouldn't use the screws that come with a set of bindings, or the usual drill bits. I never knew there was a standard, but it makes sense.

Yes, this notice is to tell you which drill bit to use and what screws to use, there is no 'safety issue' to worry about... except for the safety of the ski. Long heel screws in short ski lengths will result in dimpled bases.
