Demo binding weight

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Looking for a lighter weight 12 din (and 10 din) demo binding. Can someone check their shop manuals to let me know the weight of 12 DIN demos?

I don't have any hard data, but... While not strictly a demo binder, I'd guess a Sally Z12 Ti Smartrack is about as light and simple (and in this context, high quality) as it gets. It might be worth checking out in addition to "official" demo bindings.

I glanced at them, but for the F17 (bump ski) , I want a binding that is las close to the ski as possible.

I checked the stack height on them a while back and IIRC they are lower than any heel/toe adjustable demo binder out there & also lower than Railflexes. I don't recall how they compare to Neox - but I suspect they are lighter - and they are way easy to adjust...

You can get a demo heel track for the Marker Griffon, seriously light set-up.

Want to do a Griffon/Jester on skis over 80mm.

Will be using Vist on most of the skis, but need something particularly on the F17's especially in the smaller sizes.

Phil,
Forgot about waist width... too wide for a bump ski.

Why a DEMO binding? Why such a low DIN? Are you afraid of GOOD bindings?

The bad news on the Jester/Griffon is that the operative word is heel...

Not at all, these are for DEMO Skis. Our athletes (Patrick Deneen & Michael Morse) are running 18 DIN Looks on their skis, but for a demo ski (particularly for the 148-168 range), we want a lighter binding vs. a heavy tracked typical demo binding.

Phil, I have some used rossi ftx 10-din demo bindings you can have if you want 'em. I don' tnow if this helps at all, but they're yours if you want them. paint is chipped up but otherwise they're fine. PM me if you're interested and I can send pics.

P.S. I now they're probably a bit heavier, but meh- you decide.

Phil, don't know if you've confused my Vist Quicklock suggestion with their Speedlock range or DT Rental binding? The Quicklock has plastic mounting plates so gives a very light set-up, especially when used with their '210Light' binding. We use this set-up on our demo skis for the same benefits that you're after.

I am familiar with them, I have the Vist catalog right here. In fact we plan on using that system on our other skis. For the F17, we want something without a lift. If I go with a toe adjust system, I will probably use the Vists though.
