are Tyrolia LD-12 bindings good?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hay everybody. New to the board. Hi.

I picked up some new 06/07 Head Mojo 90s recently and they came with some unmounted LD-12 bindings, and I'm wondering if I should throw those on there or go with something else. I have no reason to distrust or question these, but I'm just wondering what everybody thinks.

I'm been on my Völkl Vertigo Motions with the Marker Motion 1200 bindings for a handful of years and have no complaints. To be honest I haven't even given them much thought at all because I've never had to have them adjusted and never had any problems with them.

Any input appreciated.

based solely on your info posted, I'd say they'll be fine. If you've gone years on your markers without adjusting them, I'd say you will be happy with the tyrolia's for a good long time.

Congrats on the Mojo 90 purchase- you'll freakin love them!

I've also been on Vertigo Motions for the last few years.

I recently picked up a pair of Fischer Watea 84's, and will be mounting LD-12 bindings on them.

I went with the LD-12s based on what I read in these forums. The Watea 84's are a light, snappy ski, which should pair well with a light binding like the LD-12.

My understanding is that the MOJO 90 is a beefier, heavier ski than the Watea. I would guess that if you're planning on landing big jumps on them, you'd be better off with a burlier binding, maybe something with a 14 or 15 DIN.

If you're not planning on doing anything extreme on your MOJOs, the LD-12's should be just fine. I expect them to be at least as capable as the Motion 1200's that we're coming from.

What DoWork and DropKickMurphy said.

LD stands for Light Diagonal. It's a lightweight binding that boasts diagonal heel and toe release. (Hence the name.) More information is available on Tyrolia's website.

Because Head and Tyrolia are related companies, I believe that mounting the Tyrolia binding on the Mojo 90s should double your warranty.

If you want specific feedback, you'll need to provide relevant information like the DIN you run at, your skiing style, height, weight, age, etc.

The last nine pairs of skis I've owned (okay, so I'm a gear whore)) have all had Tyrolia bindings, 10 if you want to count my wife's latest pair, and not a single problem with any of them. That's a pretty good reason to stick with them, IMO.

I have them, they have worked 100% well, no prereleases and only releasing when I needed them to....at all speeds

I've got the same combo - Mojo 90's and LD-12's. Dey bin berry berry good to me. I mounted them as far back as the rail would let me, for to do the big mountain. Mount them farther forward for the park. Whatever, experiment since they are easy to move around, even during the ski day.

The LD12 isn't a rail flex (RFD 12), it's a flat mounted.

It's a very good light weight binding.

The current LD12 isn't a RailFlex, but older LD12s were.

I've got flat, Head branded LD12s on the iM78s and RFII, Tyrolia branded LD12s on the XRCs. Nothing like a bit of healthy confusion :
