Bindings for Public Enemies

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just got a pair of 174 k2 public enemies and am in need of bindings. These are the first good pair of skiis I've purchased, but I have no idea what to do for bindings. Please help!

at your level bindings are pretty much bindings, go for the cheapest.

anything but marker.

Look Nova, and Solly 812 would be great starts for you.

I have a brand new pair of Rossignol Axial 120 Pro's that I'll sell for $100 shipped. Incredible binding but turns out I don't need em, too many others lying around. Same thing as Looks. These binders have a great reputation for being bullet proof and the easiest to put on in powder.

i may have been a poor broke college student in the past, but dont let that fool you; i am in fact a quite good skier.

what differentiating characteristics are there for bindings?

If the Rossignol Axial 120 Pros Ufdah has have wide brakes that would be my first choice. The first generation Rossi Axial/Look Pilot bindings have a cult following. They have the best retention of any binding and probably the safest toe piece. The debate is still out on the second generation Axial binding called the Rossi Axial2 or Look PX2. I have some and prefer them to any current binding out there for the same reasons.

After the PX2/Axial2 my second choice would be the Salomon 912 Ti. It is a very light binding, has good retention (but not as good as the PX2/Axial2.) If you want a real light set-up go with it.

I planning to mount Marker Comp 12 or 14 Free on my Public Enemies, I think they are the best for the job. Very light, probably lightest in class and 14's are virtually bombproof.

Markers light?!?!?! Since when? Marker binidings are extremely heavy and they like to release too early.

I use Salomon 810's, and I'm 5'11", 185#. No problems at all. I wouldn't recommend them for a park binding though.

and the Marker 14s are bombproof? they're the same thing as the 12s with a heavier spring- same clunky plastic toe housing that likes to crack and shatter. The only bindings with really different 12 vs. 14 din design are Salomon.
