Tyrolia RailFlex--Any General Consensus

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I know there are some strong feelings about bindings among this community---I have always skied on markers and never had a problem.I realize that many knowledgable people have some strong issues -however---my opinon has always beenn that bindign are bindings, provided that the DINis appropriate and the lift is right. Recently--on I have seen a few reccos for the Railflex--particaualry based on ease of adjustability. I am not really familiar with Tyrolia ---other than general awareness. Can any one offer first hand experience and opinions---

Thanks

I am not one who has had binding problems. I've had Markers, Neox, Look and Salomon that worked fine. I prefer the Neox or Tyrolia Railflex for their flexibility. Family members can easily swap skis. A railflex or Neox plate is also easier to mount without a template than a two piece binding setup.

The consensus is that the search function is a wonderful thing!

Have not used the railflex but I have Tyrolia Mojo 15's on one pair and Tyrolia FF 17+ on 2 other pair. IThey have all worked flawllessly.

Have also skied Atomic and Marker race bindings and Atomic Neox for many years with no issues.

I really like the railflex. They have never failed, they're easy to adjust and they have a nice "click" when you step into them.

Easiest bindings on the planet to adjust. Have worked flawlessly.

I have the Railflex binding and really like it. Super easy to adjust. The only downside is that it's quite heavy.

I own 2 fischer x17 and the tyrolia ff+10. I like the bindings alot but, i sold a pair of railflex ll's here after skiing them 2 days. They were mounted on a pair of 98mm skis and the lift was just too high (3?mm) also the connection to the ski was not very precise. As stated before lots of discussion on these bindings and it may depends on what you are mounting them on.

I love the railflex bindings. I own multiple skis, all mounted with the railflex plate. I own only 1 binding, that I can exchange on my different skis, depending on which ski I want to use. It saves me money, and allows me to bring multiple skis in one bag on a plane.

The binding itself is excellent. No problems at all. Has saved my knees many a time. Plus, you can adjust the fore/aft location, depending on the conditions/personal preference.

I have thought about doing this but got a little concerned that taking them on and off might cause undue wear and play.

Not a bad idea but only 1 binding is a bit limiting. I would have 2 minimum as i usually ski on more then 1 ski in a day. Also it is a bit of a pain in a_ _ in the snow, wind, cold, etc. to be futzing around with moving bindings from ski to ski and time consuming to do so if you do want to change skis.

I have a seaon's pass to ski check and can exchange skis at the bottom of the hill at will. That convenience is worth the cost of a couple of pair of bindings IMHO, of course!

I've had good results with Tyrolia, but never used the railflex. When I bought a pair of RS SL Heads, the shop wanted to put on the railflex. I called Head and they said it's not the right binding, I needed the FF. So, as others have said, the skis matter...

I don't know how it compares to the Railflex, but the Fischer FR12 and FF17+ I have on my new skis work very well for me. (The old all-metal Tyrolia 490s on my SGs also do a wonderfull job, though I haven't had them release on me in the last decade or two)

Unless I'm mistaken, the reason it mattered on the SLs is that they're pre-mounted with the Tyrolia CP13 plate, which isn't Railflex compatible.
