Salomon S912Ti?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Quick question about Salomon bindings.

My current Xscream's are dead and I'm about to get a new pair of Salomon XScream Series skis mounted up. I have a pair of Salomon S900 bindings with the "PowerAxe" and the associated standard lifters that I could just transfer over to the new skis.

I was curious if going to the Salomon S912Ti with a lower lifter and no PowerAxe would make the ski perform noticably better in the bumps (where I spend most of my time when skiing)?

I don't have a big problem spending the money for the 912Ti's, but if it's not going to buy me much performance increase I'll stick with the 900's

I've spoken with a few shops and get differing opinions.

Thanks for the help.

The biggest difference you'll notice is the reduction in weight. The 912Ti is amazingly light. The lowering of your bindings will make the ski feel less squirrelly which is a plus in moguls and the terrain park. The downside is the extra height helps with carving on groomers and hard snow.

What Rio said.

A Poweraxe plate has a different mounting pattern than the 912 TI, which means re-drilling the skis.
