Replacement ski bindings

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

If I purchased a pair of Head Total Joy skis for my wife and it did not come with the Joy 11 ski bindings(made by Tyrolia I believe) but has the rail, can I just purchase a different set of Tyrolia ski bindings and mount them on the same rail system, assuming the brake size is correct?  She does have a old pair of Head Pure Joy skis with Joy 9 bindings.  I assume those old bindings might be compatible if the brakes are wide enough, though it would be harder to resell/trade in the Pure Joys without bindings.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

First, those old bindings should fit the rails. The question is why didn't they come with the binding? They should, there WAS a binding for it. Right now there is a pair of bindings wondering where did their skis go and just feeling lost and having no purpose in life, a horrible place for a binding to be. Other option is to remove the tracks and just hard mount a binding on the ski.

Head owns Tyrolia.

Head's web site is among the least informative.  I think both the bindings you mention use the SuperLiteRail.  The 11 might be the better binding, but if she's a very light duty skier, the 9 should be fine.  As Phil said, there are bindings with the skis unless the shop raked them off to sell separately.  I think "woman specific" refers to the color, maybe also lighter weight/lighter duty.

Thanks for the replies.  I figured the Joy 9 bindings should fit the base plate of the Total Joy, not sure about the brake width though, 73mm waist for Pure Joy and 85mm for Total Joy.  I think they are describes as SLR bindings.  Hopefully, that means other Tyrolia bindings might be compatible with the base plate.

Did you buy these from a Head dealer? If so,you need to go back to them and demand the bindings. The shop where I work is a Head dealer and all we have to do is order a Total Joy and it comes with the bindings, they don't need to be ordered separately.

Does anybody knows where it is possible to buy spare parts for SLR 9 binding (may be not even new but used) as the toe of my binding is broken and I would like to repair it by only changing toe part? At the moment I've asked few dealers of HEAD and they told me that only complete binding can be bought.

If your in good with a local shop they may have some spare parts hanging around.

Customer buys head skis with system binding.  Customer breaks binding and comes back to shop demanding new skis and bindings. Shop cannibalizes Head Joy bindings off that ski because they have overstock of that model and used them to replace broken binding on other customer's used skis rather than giving them new bindings and new skis.  Shop sells bindingless ski with rails at decent discount to pass on the incomplete set to next customer to deal with.  This OP is the last person in that chain of events.
