Binding DIN settings

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello
Does anyone know of a reference site for DIN settings ? Also, are the settings binding specific or do they apply across all manufacturers and models ?
Thank you

You will probably get a lot of conflicting information here. Technically DIN settings are the same across the board for all manufacturers. I am certain someone has an online reference for them, but if you are not sure about how to set them, you really should take you skis to a shop and have it done professionally.

As I said above - all manufacturers are supposed to be the same - but often they are not. I have found that with Look/Rossi bindings I only have to run around a 10 or 11 DIN to keep my skis on my feet, where as with Marker and Salomon I tend to run around an 11 or 12, sometimes up to 13 or 14 for racing. I don't have a lot of experience with Tyrolia, but my younger brother (much less aggressive than I am on skis) runs a 9 on his I think. I would not consider this to be a standard at all, but it is just my expereince with different manufacturers. If you are a normal skier I would use your recommended DIN unless you are pre-releasing, then step it up 1/2 a notch and try it out.

Beware though, because adjusting your bindings will also require accurrate knowledge of forward pressure, and where it is supposed to be for your particular bindings.

Some sites reltative to DIN charts and settings here:

As has been said many times before in this forum, proceed with caution.

Thank you so much !
I have been to several stores to set the DIN setting and each recommend a different setting, from 7 to 9.5 ! As it is for a 13year old racer, I wanted to check it myself

The DIN chart does not apply to racing. It is merely a very rough starting point when applied to the race environment and then you tighten until you stay in your skis. Unfortunately trial & error from there. err on the side of higher DIN. racing puts demands on your bindings that you just don't subject them to freeskiing.
