Bindings and position for K2 Public Enemy

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just got a new Pair of 179 k2 Public Enemy 06/07 version (thanks sac for the great deal). Well I need a recommendation for a set of bindings. I was thinking of Tyrolia LD 12 RailFlex Ski Binding. I wanted them for the adjustment in mounting positions for jumping and just all-mountain bombing. Are these bindings good for all-mountain skiing including lots of jumps not so much rails and boxes. Any binding recommendations? Where should I position the bindings which ever I get. I am 21 5-11 155lbs Ski northern Michigan western OH Very athletic, Ski level 2 out of 3. If there is anymore information that I need to provide Let me know, I want some feedback from fellow bears.

Thanks in advance

incidently, i bought a pair of PE's in the last SAC round and am planning to mount the plate for my LD 12 bindings on them.

I thought 207 was a good deal, 187 is even better!

If I used the BOF method would this give me the "best of both worlds meaning All-mountain and FREERIDE"(if i use the Tyrolia Rail flex bindings).

better for park info
I'd mount them like +4 or something

For all-mountain use, use the BOF method. It puts me at +2.5cm on the PEs. Look on the K2 website under "contact" for additional guidelines on mounting positions for the PEs.

The Tyrolia RF bindings are great for all-mountain use, but you will find that they have way too much "lift" for park use (this becomes a liability when landing). I would go with a flat binding that has as little lift as possible. I put Salomon Z12 bindings on my PEs, and they have worked out great. They have zero lift under the toe piece, and little to no lift (like 1-2mm) under the heel piece. Tyrolia Mojo 15 bindings would be another good choice -- they are more durable than the Salomons in my opinion, but also more expensive!

Good luck!

Binding: Anything with the traditional Look turntable heel. Probably the Rossignol FKS 120, at your size. Best high end, 12 din freestyle binding on the market. The railflex would work ok if you absolutely had to have the adjustablity, but they will give up noticeable amount of performance to the Look's.

Mount: Given your size and skiing style, probably in the range of +2 or +3.

Hi Anakedman,

I think very highly of this binding for just the reasons you mentioned. Here is my review of the binding and the first ski I used it on. The ski is the 177cm Volkl Karma which I ski in the same way you want to use your 179 k2 Public Enemy.

Have fun with your new skis!

Do you just come 'round to threads that are obviously posted in fun and take them seriously like a stoned toolbox?

I didn't realize it was posted in fun, my bad. I've seen a lot of threads that you'd think are jokes but the people are dead serious.

I agree with you there. And it scares me.
