Wow, thats very interesting news. Its funny too because the shop I work for probably sells ~70% of its "a la carte" bindings as Salomons. Unfortunately for Salomon this is usually because they have clearance inventory at screaming deals.
Whats very interesting about it is that it would appear that Neox would cost more to build than one of the modern 914s or whatever, particularly since all the tooling for that stuff must be long since paid for.
Word from Rossignol race-room is that supposedly this is the last season for the Rossi race bindings, all the juniors will be forced into Axial2 next year. I'll have to see it to believe it, but that will suck
if it does happen.
One pair of skis I'm skiing on now has some 8 or 9 year old Salomon comp binders on it, that look worn out but still test fine and work like a charm. Actually, Salomon bindings in general are my favorite bindings to test. What the heck are all the rental shops going to do? C509 SR is the best rental binding, period...
