Input on bindings...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've got some legend 8000's i need bindings for, these are last years model with a 79mm waist.

I am ultimately looking at {x}12 model bindings in the titanium version, I plan to have to strap my skis in to my backpack for some yo-yo skiing and would like to keep the weight down where ever possible.

evogear outlet has some salomon z12 but only 80mm brake, which I am guessing won't work because they won't be mounted at the exact waist of the ski. So I may go with this years model z12 with a 90mm brake.

I am staying away from any binding with lifter technology, while it's probably not noticeable I'd like to stay as low as possible.

Any thoughts? any deals?

The 80mm brake will work fine. You may have to bend them out slightly, but they will work. Actually, I doubt you will have to bend them at all.

Dynastar is connected to Lange which is connected to Look which actually makes the Rossi binders.

Why not keep it in the family and get some PX12's or some Axial 120s?

Seconded....

Go with a Rossi/Look/Dynastar PX12 or Axial 120.....better retention and lighter weight at the same time .

the px12 only come in lifter or jib flavors. Unless i can't find them, which is why I am here.

the axial 120's are not light. the only TI version I could find are 140's which wouldn't be a problem except they are wide brake.

you don't have to use the lifters.

you can usually swap out brakes.

Levelninesports.com has look P12 and PX12 for super cheap. They also have some late model PX12 bidings for $100. The older models are mounted to a demo track, not sure how that would be for mounting to your boards.

Rated brake width measurements are generally conservative, for obvious reasons. 80mm brakes should work fine for your purposes.

And what others have said about the Look/Rossi/Dynastar PX series bindings. Bear in mind also that ski manufacturers typically double their warranty period when you mount with their binding.

And yes, you can mount "lifter" bindings without the lifters, although with a 79mm waisted ski, there's no reason I can see to mount flat.

But if you do not use the lifters, you will need shorter hardware, otherwise you will dimple the bottom of the ski.

Thanks, quickk9. Should've said that.
