Look PX12 Jib Wide vs Marker Griffon

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have access to either of these bindings at an incredible deal (friend of a friend owes me a favor). Any facts about the differences between these two bindings?

Me: 44 y/o, 5’9” 155 lbs. DIN setting I prefer is 8. Advanced but not expert skier. Will ski almost all of Squaw except park/pipe or anything worthy of real gnar points. I will be mounting them on 2010-2011 Liberty Helix (105mm under foot).

 

Q: Can the 100mm Brake of the Jib fit a 105mm ski without damage or loss of performance to the brakes.

Q: How will the 3mm gel/elastomer lift of the Jib effect non-park, on and off piste performance?

Yes

I don't like risers, but chances are you won't really notice it. You can also grind the screws down a bit and mount em flat

Flip a coin, either will work. Griffon is lighter, thats about the only difference you will notice.
 

If it were me, I would grab the griffon over the PX12, but each to their own.

Go marker if you are off piste at all. The px binding are harder to get in and out of and if you are in a tough spot and loose a ski getting in back on can be more difficult than some of the other bindings out there. Griffon is easie for sure.

Will the 100mm brake on the Griffon work or do I need to go to the 110mm?

Griffons have only 90 and 110 brakes.
