Head Mojo 15 vs. Marker Griffon

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Greetings,

 

50 soon to be 51 yo, 195 lb expert skier, National ski patrol.  Just purchased a pair of Rossi Experience 88 176 cm for ski patrol duty.  Looking at the head Mojo 15 and Marker Griffon.  Need a binding that is easy to get into and out of in all conditions for ski patrol

 

What do you say?

 

Thanks for your help in advanced!

 

Cheers,

Marc

 

Pray for Snow on the West Coast!!!!

Mojo. Or best of both Tyrolia AAAttack 13/16.

Mojo. If there's sensitivity to ramp angle, you might want to shim the toe. If not, just ski'em. Great binding and much easier entry/exit than the Griffin.

I took an awkward forward twisting fall last year and first time ever failed to release when I should have.  Nothing broken but very sore for about a month.  Bindings -- Mojo 15's.  Purely coincidental for sure, but lost my confidence.  

 

I used Griffens before the Mojos and use them now. Have never had a problem w/ release or retention on Griffins and nice & light but they are a bit stiffer in step-in and also stiffer to cock the heel back for removal.  I would not patrol on them.  

 

When I patrolled I always used Salomons w/ the driver toe and wouldn't even consider using anything else.  Great elasticity in toe -- I set the toes one DIN# below recommended and could twist out of them with my own leg strength and quickly and get to business when needed, and never had a pre-release.  Fast, easy, and total protection against pre-release when running sleds.

I'm pretty sure bodies have been broken using every binding currently on the market.

I find that Marker Griffons work well as far as release/retention but I have removed them from my powder skis (replaced with Salomon STH 13s) as I have found them difficult to get clicked into on steep terrain or deep snow as they just require too much step in force.

This^^^ or the Salomons would be my pick. The attacks are super easy to click into IME. So far, they have been well behaved in terms of retention and release.

I've used all three.

Mojo's are good but the Attacks are better.  Griffon?  Ugh.

The Mojo 15 toe is derived from their race bindings. This made me think, are there any lateral spring race bindings? I couldn't think of any.

Well looks like I can get the Attack 13 for about the price I am finding the Mojo15.  Thinking about going for that.  Need to check with the mountain ski shop to see if they have the jig to mount the Tyrolia/Head options.

 

Thanks for all your input!!

Same jig as Peak/Mojo IIRC.

If you're finding the AAAttack 13 for the same price as LevelNines $129 Mojo 15 w/ a 97mm brake (should work perfectly for an 88 ski, see: http://www.levelninesports.com/Head-Mojo-15-Ski-Bindings) -- please let us know where ;)

Attack 13s feel lower to me than Mojos (dunno actual stack ht.) I like the Attacks on wide skis. The Mojos or Tyrolia Free Flex bindings are great on narrower/carving skis. Whether 88s are narrow or wide is up to you...

Believe both attacks and mojos are 17mm stack height.

Not the same price - $10 less, is that OK? :D

Mojo has more ramp angle is all. Hole pattern is identical if I recall. Skied them on Nrgy 100's last year. No problems at all in any condition. Both are fine bindings. I still like the toe of the mojo better, but I'd buy whichever was the better deal and just go skiing.

The plus of the Attack is that is is extremely light too.

Hi All,

 

Thanks for the advice.  I ended up pulling the trigger on a Pro-deal Attack 13 with 95 mm brakes.  Comparable in price to the Mojo's from Levelnine.  The weight and ease of use getting in and out of was the final decision points.  I am sure either Mojo's or Attacks would both work well.  I have some older free-flex on other boards.  I like them but they do weigh a bit more than the attack.  This is a consideration when patrolling - hiking around to do various tasks.

 

Cheers,

Marc
