Lowest height adjustable bindings?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The kinds of skis I'm using these days seem to work best with boots as low to the ski as possible. But, I'd like to be able to share some incoming boards with other family members (of course with radically different sole lengths). So, what are the very lowest height bindings with a semi-reasonably adjustable sole length?

Now is the time for people even geekier than I am to make yourselves known

You can pick up NOS Salomon 850's on Ebay for $60-75 range.

I'm not worried about cheap. I want low and sole-length adjustable (and obviously, as reliable as possible). In the past I've had good luck with both Neox and Railflex - but would love to find something noticeably lower. Lighter would not hurt either . Availability of really fat brakes is also a nice convenience.

Also, if you know the height of the binding you reference, I'd sure appreciate that info...

Sorry, I miss read your post. I thought you wanted a toe that had a height adjustment that could be adjusted to the lowest height.

In the Tyrolia line there is the LD-12 (LD stands for Light Diagonal) and Mojo 11 and maybe some others. Both are lightweight bindings. The LD-12 can be purchased with wide brakes. On the Mojo 11, I believe that wide brakes are standard. Both are designed to be mounted directly on the ski and neither comes with a plate.

Two Fischer bindings using Tyrolia technology that also come with wide brakes, no plates and higher DIN settings are the Fischer X-17 (DIN 17) and Fischer X-14 (DIN 14).

I've been skiing in Tyrolia bindings or their Fischer versions for years both with plates and without and never had a problem.

Once mounted, they can all be adjusted to slide back and forth to some extent at the heel without remounting. I've moved mine from accommodating a 311mm sole to a 301mm sole and I know that they can be adjusted further. I'm thinking they have a total range of about 2cm's once mounted. This is at the heel only. Once the toe piece is drilled it is immovable without redrilling. To adjust bindings at both the toe and heel you will need a Rail Flex design.

If he doesn't respond on his own, you might want to PM mntlion, a.k.a, He Who Knows All About Salomon Demo Bindings.

Try the old style (pre NEOX) Atomic Race binding. It will give you as much adjustment as you want with a reasonably low height (12- 14mm IIRC) and without the disadvantages of demo bindings. No problems with them if you use a 614 or a 1018.

I agree. I am still a fan of the pre-NEOX Atomic bindings. Still very available and priced accordingly. A bit heavy but you can't beat the 5 position foward and rearward positioning of the binding. Versus the only three of the railflex alternative (yes the railflex is lighter).
