Boot/Binding compatibility

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just discovered that me and my brother have just about the same sole lenght on our boots (317 vs 318) and I wanted to know if there would be any problems switchiong skis for a couple of runs (they click ok in the basement but I just said it BASEMENT...) so I wonder if there could be possible issues because I would love to try his skis)

Thanks, Hellevhisse

There can always be problems, even when you have the identical BSL.

That said, you'll want to check to forward pressure (usually set on the heel, using a tab with grooves in it or a worm screw) and be sure that you're comfortable with the DIN that each other uses.

What he said, it'll probably work, but check the forward pressure as AD said. Boot sole length is not exact, and can vary by a few mm. Also check other adjustments, if any. Some bindings have a toe height or toe wing adjustment, for example.

My buddies and I switch skis constantly. It's no biggie. Go for it!
