Din Settings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have a DIN chart or know where I can get one. I would like to make some adjustments as my kids continue to grow. I know the shop always asks height, weight, age, and skier level. I just don't know how this applies to the DIN setting.

Please point me in the right direction.

Thanks.

Jim

Well, you can find one by going to yahoo and typing "Skier DIN chart" in, but a word of caution. Bindings will decay over time and you should have their release settings by a ski shop with a machine at least once a year. These machines can apply a definite amount of force to the binding, thus making sure that it releases at the proper setting.

The shop near me charges 15 to adjust bindings and perform a release check.

I would agree that it's ok to do it yourself as long as you know what you're doing, but you should also have your release settings checked by machine at least once a year (about $10 at the local shop). This is something you can't do at home and an essential part of skiing safety. Granted, there are many shops that claim to test bindings without doing it, so make sure you have a reputable shop that uses the proper equipment.

Just a FYI ... Over the past couple of years on Epic, there have been many previous threads about do-it-yourself DIN adjustments, DIY binding testing, forcing releases daily, shop liability issues, running bindings near the middle of their ranges, etc..

For example, you might want to browse through threads like these. There are many more, but unfortunately I couldn't quickly put my finger on one particular thread that I thought would be particularly appropriate for the current discussion. If I find it, I'll add it to the list.
