Where to Mount Bindings on Rossignol Soul 7

post #1 of 7

Hi, I just bought rossignol soul 7 180s and marker F12s as a touring set up. Any recommendations on where to mount the bindings? I am 5'11 160lb. Thanks

I have the Soul 7 in 188 cm as my touring ski and mounted it on the line, seems to work well for me. I had Guardians on there but quickly realized that the added weight was not ideal for touring and bought a set of Marker Kingpins. If you're going to use these mainly for touring I would get a set of AT bindings and sell the frame bindings.

Mount the 180 as recommended.

Thanks guys

 

I should have been more clear, I'll be using these as a one ski setup for both touring and inbounds.  I chose the Tour F12 since it is one of the lighter frame bindings.

A friend of mine who is a good skier and tours a lot has the Soul 7.  Based on advice from friends, he mounted the binding 2cm. behind the neutral line on the ski - he tried to get used to it, couldn't, and re-mounted the binding in a neutral position.  For all uses, mount neutral

I just got a pair of 188 Soul 7's with Tour 12's. I'm 5'9, 170 and I had them mounted on the recommended all mountain line. Skied them for the first time today and they were great. Got into skied out trees and glades, some fairly steep bump runs and groomers. Did great in all those conditions. I Didn't question the mount point at all. I plan on doing some touring as well. The tech who mounted them has a lot of experience with touring set ups said that mounting them on the line and not 2cm back will make them better for touring.
