Wrens & Pontoons - The Bindings man.... the bindings...

post #1 of 6

So, yeah, I got ON3P Wrenegade &  Pontoons. Need binding advice.

 

I saw these on sale at evogear, will these work?

Yes.

I  think the 130mm wide brakes may be too wide for the Wrens, which I believe are 115 in the waist, unless they fold in when retracted.  With skis that wide you will be banging them together occasionally, and you do not want to be hooking your brakes.  This might  be a non-problem, but if I were you I would make sure the brake arms on that binding retract in when they are up.  The 115-130 "compatibility" rating is for sales purposes.  If you are at the absolute lower limit of the range, there is a good chance the brakes arms will be sticking out a little beyond the edges of the skis while you are skiing.

Agree. I'd use the narrowest brake that "works". 130 for the toons & 115 for the Wrenegades. Worth noting that the Salomon brakes are decently soft - so the can be bent a bit wider than spec in about 30 seconds (without it being a real bending project).

Cool, so go with the Solomons for the toons, any recommendations for the Wrens?

STHs of all flavors are available with your choice of 115 or 130 brakes. Or, if you use ice skates, narrower ones for that matter...
