2016 Bindings W/ 13 DIN

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
I've narrowed down my new 90(ish) waisted skis to just a few that I'll demo and choose between. What I'm asking is what bindings would everyone recommend with a DIN of 13? I usually ski at a setting of 10 but I am getting older. I'm 6' 275 and ski 75% in the Midwest and 25% in the Rockies. At some point in the past I've owned & skied almost every manufacturers alpine binding so no real favorite / loyalty issues.
Thanks

Look/Rossi Pivot 14...18

Salomon/Atomic Sth2 13...16

Tyrolia Attack 13...16 or 18

 

But at 275b..I would suggest going to a 16/18DIN which has more metal and can handle more torque.

I've thought about that too but shops actually set my DIN at 7 or 7.5 so I was afraid it was going to be too much. Maybe I need to look at them too. Any recommendations for a 16 DIN ?

Note I have the higher DIN options in the same spot. You can override the shop setting the DIN at a 7-7.5 by signing a C.R.S. (Customer Requests Setting)  when then do the mount.

What is your BSL, age, skier type?

325, 55, getting back to a III after missing a few years off due to injury.

You get knocked back to a II for being over 50 which would put your DIN at 8.5, but if you tell the shop you're a III+ you get DIN of 10. Or just sign a waiver.

Getting old sucks! My local shops won't do the waiver so I've just turn it up myself.

So should I be looking at Salomon, Marker or Tyrolia? I miss Geze through!

Yes. Whatever one you can get a deal on or matches the graphics of the skis. ANY 16 DIN binding is good. And there is nothing to miss about Geze.

Well, it does have some perks.  My season pass is now $169 instead of $509 and at some areas an all day senior ticket is cheaper than a half day adult ticket. The real downside is that you start running out of people your own age to ski with.

Almost all of my ski friends were about 10 years younger than me and don't ski since kids and whatever so I mostly skied alone last year. If I want to ski with friends & family I gotta go to CO. or WY.

Weekend passes in MI are only $99-149 without the senior discount so not so bad.

So I'm down to the Marker Lord (14 Din) or the Tyrolia Attack 13. It may come down to price/deal. Any thoughts about either?

I will be looking at new Look bindings this season - DIN range up to 14 but I won't be set that high.

If you aren't setting it that high, just go with the 12, it is the same binding housing with a lower spring and a less expensive price tag, otherwise it is the same binding. BTW, I loved you in The Breakup.

That's what I've decided to do. I've almost never pre-released or walked out of a 13 DIN.
