binding position for PE's

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I remember a thread months ago on binding position for PE's. Can't find it though. Does some one recall it? Or could you recomend where to mount bindings for more of all mountain skiing.

On the rear line.

If you do a search of the site you will see +2 to +3

I recently did a search on that topic and found the information to be scattered...very different from place to place and therefore hard to come to any conclusion. It would be very helpful if it could be summarized here.

FYI, You can go here and read the info under Mounting Point:

Hope that helps. I have mine +3

there have got to be more pe mounting threads than any other...

do a BOF mount for all mountain. mine put me at +2. that seems to be about the general concensus for versatility.

I have mine mounted 3 cm back from "core center," which is the same as 4 cm forward of "mid sole." See the link (above) to untracked.com above for an explanation of the mounting points.

Mounted as described (1-2 cm forward of the above recommendations), my PE's carve well (even on NE ice) and are decent in the bumps. Never saw more than 8" of powder last year, so I can't really comment on their power performance (they did fine in everything I encountered). Skied switch well. I wished they were a bit lighter when trying to learn tricks in the park (I'm not a park skier).

Had mine in 15-20" of powder at Steamboat last year. Being from the east/mid-Atlantic, I don't ski powder much at all, but had an absolute blast with the PE's there. Good in pow for a ski that's not a dedicated powder ski...imo.

It depends on your boot sole length, among other factors. With a 325mm boot, I like +2.5 for all mountain. I would drop back to +0.5 or 0.0 for powder emphasis.

Three words... MIDSOLE ON MIDSOLE. That ski has a directional sidecut profile.

I ve had to pairs of 179s

one mounted the rear most line one mounted +2 from rear most line/

+2 is better in everything but powder than rear most line. It gains more in other areas and concedes less in powder by that mounting point. I would go there or +3.

are you talking about a BOF mount? in which case, i would absolutely agree, since the OP wants all mountain versatility
