Knee Binding improvements

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I recently bought a new pair of the Carbon model of the Knee binding for just $240 from a shop.  I was told they were 2014, but they're actually for the 2012-13 season.  I contacted Knee Binding Inc and was told that the bindings have been improved since then.  The changes consist of improved step-iin with various boots, changed brake system, improved fit and finish, and improved durability of the adjustment screw for the upper heel (the screw was changed from plastic to metal).  The Carbon normally sells for $400, so this is a great price.  Does anyone know if these changes are significant?

They sound pretty significant.

Unfortunately, they are using us as beta testers.

I had Knee bindings put on my new skis Dec 2014. I find them to work well.

 

For your price, you got a good buy. Is that what you wanted to hear. The bindings work well, right ?

 

I'm sure the bindings have passed any required test before they were released to the market. If there was a major issue I'm sure we would have heard about.

It doesn't sound like any of the updated changes do anything that effects the release/retention characteristics of the binding.

Just an update. Knee Binding offered to replace the 2012/13 bindings with the most current bindings. Kudos to Knee Binding! I am one happy and loyal new customer now.
