Hey guys,

 

I just picked up a new pair of 185 cm Bent Chetlers. I'm wondering what the best bindings for these would be. Right now I'm torn between Salomon STH, Marker Jester, and Look Pivot. If you have a suggestion for a different binding than these three, that would be great too. Thanks for your help.

How about a variant of Tyrolia Peak? Loads of metal, very strong yet lightweight (for a metal binding). If you are a lighter guy, Fischer X17 would suit you (DIN starts from just 6-17).

Are you sensitive to ramp angle?  They will all work fine.  Get the cheapest one with brakes the right size.  If ramp angle matters, then the pivots come with shims for under the toe to adjust angle.  Jesters are fairly flat.  Not sure about Salomon or Tyrolia.

Salomons will have a slight ramp angle. Heels are about 4mm higher than the toes. As I recall, 18mm height at the toe, 22mm height at the heel.

You will also be in 3D snow, ramp is less of a concern. Let's not over think this, it's not summer any more. ;)

 

My vote:

Pivot

Sth 2

Attack

I think ramp is of zero concern, too, for this use. I like the Solly for a deep snow ski, though, as IF you come out, and need to click back in, I find them a bit easier to deal with than P-18's. But agree, plenty of good choices. The Solly and Looks are my binding choices. Never let me down.

Don't rule out the Tyrolia Attack 16.  It's proven itself as a solid binding over the past two seasons.  A few of our staff (quite aggressive skiers) have been skiing it with great success.

 

That being said, all the bindings you mentioned are good bindings.  As someone mentioned, Jesters can be somewhat challenging to click back into in powder if you run a high DIN setting.  The same can be said for Pivots, but for different reasons.

Does the Tyrolia Peak have lateral heel release like the Pivots?

The Pivot does not have a lateral release, the only binding that does is the Kneebinding.

I'd absolutely go with the Look Pivot (Or the Rossi FKS, same binding). I was on mostly Solly bindings for years, and was thoroughly unimpressed with them. Just didn't hold my boot well, needed constant tinkering, had prereleases with them on more than a couple occasions. I went to Rossi/Look bindings over the last few years, and will never look back.

Bindings aren't rocket science, just get whatever is cheapest. I'm partial to non-indemnified metal Sollys, myself.

Grammar and spelling are too correct.

Would all be one word... Plugbootblue or Fuzzybabybunny It is funny, I am active on another forum and it is not uncommon for the wacko's to have a handle of three words that are all disconnected in meaning as one word wit no spaces. 

 

Actually I don't think that Juan Hitta is to far off, non indemnified Salomon Equipes (957/977/997/900E) 9-14, 11-17 and 14-20's are bomber bindings and I would totally trust them myself.

Given the name, and preference for old solly's. I would say solid maggot.
