Tyrolia Powerrail bindings - how fat can you go?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Happy New Year everyone.

 

Assuming that you can find compatible brakes (85/88/95/97/100/110/120, etc.) - is there a limit on waist width you can go with Tyrolia-made Powerrail (PRD) system bindings?

 

I am considering these as a possible alternative to put on 88-105 mm wide boards, one of key reasons being their adjustability for possible future resale.

 

I am well aware of demo options available for non-plate bindings (such as Tyrolia Attack), but find them either pricey or hard to procure where I live.

 

Thanks

I have been and still am a fan of the earlier Tyrolia Railflex bindings. 1 pair of bindings, multiple skis.
The brakes for the Railflex bindings went up to 115mm wide. I have used them on skis up to 113mm wide.
I recently sold a pair of skis to a guy who wanted to go wider for Japan (113). he had an old pair of Head Monsters and liked the idea of using the Railflex setup rather than the Sollys already on the skis. Problem was, I couldn't source RF brakes anymore. I bent up some narrow brakes from 70 to fit the wide skis.

I don't see why there would be a limit if you can get/bend brakes to fit. I use Railflex on 115mm skis and have Powerrail on 98mm skis. I like them due to the easy size adjusting as I often load skis to friends. I don't mind the extra height -- actually, I can't tell a difference between these and lower height bindings.
