Binding Help! Mojo15 or Railflex?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of purchasing some Head iM82's (172) this year to use as a late afternoon crud buster and for some powder use. No park use. I'd like to know what some of the advantages and disadvantages are of the two bindings with this ski. I am guessing that Head will recommend the Mojo15, but I'm not sure if that's the best option if I plan to ski more on-piste versus off-piste. Any help would be appreciated.

hey wait, how can you be skiing more on-piste than off-piste with this ski fi you're using it for crud-busting and powder skiing? anyways, i guess it just matters on the DIN; if you need it, go up. also the mojo has a better toepiece, look at TGR and 2007 binding thread for stuff on that.

I have RF on mine only because as an east-coaster I use them for piled up mashed potatoes and loose snow days on groomed runs (not very well groomed runs). I can still carve with them and then change up the turns and go crud busting with them. But here's the bottom line. THe RF has a lifter in it, better for carving and quicker response, the Mojo is pretty much flat so that will be more true powder oriented where you don't need to rock them up on edge. That's the difference! Its a great ski. IT does require some skills.

What's your DIN setting?

My basic understanding, synthesized from the comments of those who have skied them: Mojo 15 is basically Tyrolia's race binding with springier springs, to give it a DIN range that better mere mortals can ski. Railflex takes a good binding and adds complexity, and therefore increases the potential points of failure, which is rarely advantageous in a ski binding. See, e.g., the short-lived Salomon ProPulse system.

Based on what I know about them, I'd be far more likely to get the Mojo 15.

DIN setting is 8. The fact is that I'll be using the ski as an all-mountain ski and I'm a bit worried about not having that quick response from the Mojo 15 that the RF would offer.
