Rossignol Soul 7 binding

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello Guys, 

 

The ski season is getting closer so I am preparing all my equipments... This summer I bought a pair of Rossignol soul 7 and I am wondering which is the best binding to fix on them.

 

I have a pair of Marker Baron but I am worried that they can affect the flexibility of the skies. Do you think it may be better to fix a binding like the Griffon one??

 

Pls note that I use the skis also for going up with the seal skins (usually no more than 1h and half ski tours). 

 

Waiting yours

How often do you tour?  A binding like the Baron will effect the flex of the ski, but only slightly.  If you're planning on doing a fair amount of touring, I'd say stick with your Barons.  If it's going to be more of a resort ski you'll be better off on a binding like the Griffon - lower center of gravity, more consistent flex, etc.

 

There's always Alpine Trekkers if you're only planning on touring a little bit.  Most people shun Trekkers, but they do work and provide an alternative to touring bindings...

Usually I ski 20 days/ year and of those 20 days I tour 10 times roughly but as mentioned before are always shoet tours. Offcourse every time I try to ski off the slopes except at the begining of the season (oct-nov).

How the Alpine Trekkers work? Are they efficient or everytime you have to fix them?

I though that another opt could be to buy a pair of snowshoes and take the skies on my backpack while I am going up and then enjoing the descent!! I see several way to fix the skiboot on the snowshoes..

Rossi FKS 12 if you mount an alpine binding... done. Extends the ski warrantee from 1 year to 2 as well. Framed tour binding? Tyrolia Adrenelin 13.

I am scared that the plate of the binding (tyrolia adrenaline or Byron) limits the great flexibikity of this ski and stress too much the tip and the back.
I've choosen this ski also for the great lightness and flexibility and it will be dramatic if I will waste this quality by fixing the wrong binding!

I have 180cm Soul7's with Adrenalin 13's, works pretty well for me.

Yes, you are a bit higher off the ski but the expected dead spot is not noticeable to me.  In the past I had Marker Barons (mounted on a different ski) & the dead spot was the reason I got rid of them.  For me the Adrenalins perform better, are lighter & the touring function is much more user friendly.  I also have a set-up with Fritschi Freeride Pro's.  The Firschi's are lighter & the touring mode is super simple but they are sloppy for skiing & the stance angle takes some getting used to.  For short outside the boundary tours, the Adrenalin is the best of both worlds for me.

Others may suggest a tech binding, but then you are getting into big $'s!

So why a Marker Baron or Duke if you're at all weight conscious?
