pre-releasing device 311 bindings.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know these arent top of the line bindings but they work well with my Atomic C: 920 ski's anyways, normaly i ski groomers but recently we've been getting alot of snow, so theirs alot of powder, anyways, i went skiing today and twice when i went from groom to powder i tended to lean foward and one of my ski's would release, later on in the day same thing happend, so i took it to the shop and raised the DIN from 6.5 to 8, (Charts say it should be at 6.5 for a 140 pound level 3 "aggresive" skier.) while i was in the shop the guy had me clip into the bindings and see if i was still able to get out of them, all i had to do was step foward and lean into it and i would pop out with ease. I dont really want to go any higher then 8 just for my own safty. The tech at the shop had a look at my bindings and he told me that they were correctly adjusted to my boot... Any ideas?

Did the shop guy torque test them? They may be getting old and the springs may be fatiguing. "Pop out with ease" implies that they aren't giving you enough resistence, in my book.

BTW, this isn't "prerelease".

I had a similar experience a few years ago with brand new Atomic Xentrix 310's. After mounting them, my shop tech did a release check and found the rear spring of one of them less than half what they were supposed to be. He told me some Atomics come with defective rear springs. I took it back to the shop and they replaced them. Definitely get them release checked and get new ones if defective.
