This is something I have been curious about for a while. After hearing about the recent injury to a skier who broke his tib-fib I started thinking about how this occurs and what role the rear binding plays in such an injury.

What orientations of the boot/binding interface in particular will cause the rear binding to release? When the ski bends does it cause an upward pressure on the rear binding release or does the forward pressure prevent an excessive amount of force from being applied to this site?

Also, does everyone keep their toe and rear binding on the same DIN? Would lowering the rear binding DIN pose a great risk of premature release or prevent an injury from not releasing in a forward fall when the ski suddenly stops its forward progress?
