Salomon S 810 Ti ...Too Old to Recycle?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of Salomon S 810 Ti bindings that are 7 or 8 seasons old.  They seem to work great and have had 10-15 days per year use.  It is time for new skis.  Is it reasonable to recycle these bindings or am I asking for trouble?  My new skis will be Volkl Mantras.

They are still indemnified.  With that said, you're talking about clamps with as many as 120 days on them.  If you're going with Mantras (depending on your personal stats for course) you may want to step into a more burly binding.

The TI has a serious defect that you should check before recycling on a burly ski like the Mantra. The heel plate, the component screwed to the ski upon which the heelpiece slides for adjustment, frequently cracks, causing the heelpiece to fall off during skiing.  I had three of these bindings, one failed in pow and I almost lost the damn thing. then I checked the other sets: they were all cracked and ready to fail completely. Since then I have noticed that my friends have experienced the same problem.  Salomon was willing to replace it with the Z model which is a POS, so I don't know what to say. Some of the models, the plate can be replaced with the standard steel plate (two of my sets), but I bet that ship has long sailed.

Thanks for your collective opinion.  I expected  I would need new bindings.  What bindings do you like for the Mantras?

Look (Dynastar) PX 12 or Rossignol Axial2 120 (same binding) unless you need a DIN higher than 12, which it doesn't sound like you do.
