Tyrolia MOJO 15 Bindings and Mojo 90's

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I am new to the forum, and i am getting a pair of 2007 Mojo 90's and was wondering if anyone had used some other bindings besides the recommended tyrolia mojo 15 for this ski?

No but my MOJO 15's have been flawless. the MOJO 15 toe says Race diagonal and looks identical to the FF 17 + toe piece ecept the DIN goes to only 15 insted of 17.

i can't imagine a Din up to 15 would ever creat a problem. I ski mine on 9 now. 10 last year because my boot sole was 3mm shorter.

I have never released.

Ok that helps, I don't think 15 would be a problem also.
I have been mostly on Rossy scratch 110 with about din 11 for the past 2 seasons.

i have the Mojo15's on a pair of King Salmons. My DIN is about 9.5.

Love 'em. Bought another pair to have around when the quiver needs an update.

I think im going to get 2008 Mojo 11's w/ the 95mm brake to save some $$$, I don't think I'll be riding Mojo90's with more than Din 10

I have not heard a single bad thing about Mojo 15s. I've not skied them, but I will be once I mount them on my new 195 Praxis Powders.

The same is not true of the Mojo 11. I haven't skied them either, but the guy that we shared a ski house with had a pair. They use the lighter duty Tyrolia toe (and I think the heel as well, but I'm not sure). If you're running a 10, I'd think about the 15s -- not for the sake of the DIN, but for durability.

OK thanks for that piece of info, maybe some Rossi scratches would work fine or even some salomon z's

Avoid the Mojo 11s. They're not very heavy duty at all. The 15s are a great quality binding, but if you want to save a bit of money, go for the LD 12s. Good quality construction, slightly lower din and slightly cheaper.

I broke the toepiece of a LD 12 this summer.

2nd the mojo 15's being good bindings for the price. FF17's are the same binding and can be had for cheaper sometimes.

FF17s are not exactly the same binding. The springs are different -- 5 to 15 vs. 6 or 7 to 17. The FFs also have the FreeFlex system, which adds a smidge of weight. But you're correct that the toes and heels are basically the same. Incidentally, Level Nine has the FFs at a good price.

Since the d10 is essentially the same binding as the FF17, you might think about those if you can get a deal. Level Nine cleared out a bunch of d10s for $59 this summer, and eBay is always worth a shot. You may also be able to find d8s or d9s with a DIN in the same range, possibly even cheaper.

You beat me to it! Also the Mojo 15 is two complelty separte components with no track plate or connection which is mounted right on the ski deck, like an old school 2 piece binding.

I bought a brand new pair on ebay for $160.00 in the box new!

I got the 2007 Mojo 90's and decided to mount them with Look PX12's because they were a bit cheaper. Very solid binding and haven't popped out yet.

FF17's use the same brake types (and toe and heel housings as the rest of the mojo 15, you could take the bindings right off a mojo 15 and put it on the ffs. Also have you ever held just the ff plate piece, it does not weigh very much.

as I said BASICALLY THE SAME BINDING.

gah, silly crustal skier.

So tell me again, why someone would buy a binding and then have to futz around trying to find a different width brake and pay for the brakes when they could just buy a MOJO 15 which would fit there ski out of the box?

Because I have walked into a store and seen ff17's for $70. Never seen mojo 15's that cheap. The only point I was trying to bring up in my original post was that all the praise being laid on the mojo 15's also applied to the ff17's so if the original poster happened to see a pair for cheap he shouldn't hesitate to grab those.

That spring connection stuff is the Free Flex. It's not, however, a lot of extra weight -- I've weighed the d10 against the Mojo 15, and they're within a couple hundred grams.

Level Nine has a good stock of Tyrolia wide brakes, but you're right that the Mojo 15 comes stock with wider (although not widest) ones.

I know it is the Free flex:

200 grams = 7.14 ounces almost 1/2 lbs.??? And we have been talking the Ff 17 d17????

I have been looking around and found that the binding that i want for the price is the Look px12 @ level nine, talked to jon today and he said they were great. Really looking forward to a pair of mojo's!

I forget the actual number, and I think it was more like 100g or less. But the weight comparison was between the 17-DIN d10 and the Mojo 15. One part -- I forget whether it was the toe or heel -- was actually lighter on the d10.
