Rossignol Axial2 120 Bindings

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Anyone knows what the differences are between these two bindings:

 

1. Rossi Axial2 120 Pro

2. Rossi Axial2 WC 120 MFX

 

I'm expecting better durability in the WC version, but I've never worn out a binding, so the $160 price difference isn't worth it to me on the durability alone.

 

My DIN setting is 8, so I'm guessing that the 120 is the right range for me.

 

I'm considering these to go on mogul skis.

(not having personal experience with either binding)

 

the wc version is probably heavier and a bit beefier (more metal, less plastic.)  Because of this I'd expect it to be a touch better at preventing pre releases.  But theres definately no real "need" for a "WC" binding unless you plan on racing it or at least carving agressively.  For bumps I'd imagine the lighter the bindings the better. 

 

anyone else find it odd how low the din is on the WC bindings? my tyrolia's go up to 17 and I think atomics go to 18...

That is not a senior race stock binding obviously.

The bindings differ in color scheme...not much else.

 

The cheaper one is a better deal.

And four out of five bump skiers agree, a great binding in the bumps =)

The WC is the junior race binding.  It has the retail style toe, not the race stock single pivot toe.  The heel is built beefier (more metal, less plastic).

That heel is still not the worm drive, metal heel.  You need a 15 for that.

 

edit: to clarify i'm not disagreeing with you.  definitely more metal less plastic.  not a big deal though.

If I remember correctly, the WC 12 binding also has a shorter heel track to make the binding lighter without effecting structural integrity.  Also I think that the brakes are fixed, so you can't change brakes out to wider models.
