need help finding bindings for skinny skis

post #1 of 17

Hi guys, I have some vokyl skis that have a 68mm width I believe. I am having a hard time finding bindings that will fit for them. Anybody have any recommendations? would bindings with 80mm breaks be too wide? thanks

80mm is standard size they will work.

Old school bindings are more like 72mm.  Might also look for a set of NOS Bindings from the early 2000's late 90's.  I just recently bought a set of NOS Atomic slalom skis and some NOS Marker 9.1 Turbo SC's to go with them.

Look similiar to my old M48 Race bindings, my guess would be they were made in the mid 90's

The PX-12 is a very good binding.  You may be able to do a little better on price if you shop around (maybe down into the $120-130 range).  Tramdock (http://www.tramdock.com/?avad=3313_0_cl_0) has them for $100 every once and a while.

 

Those Markers are too old, don't bother.

What model of Völkl ski?  There are two bolt patterns that are not compatible.  I ended up getting Marker Comp 16 for my skinny Völkls.  They seem to work all right, but I haven't really put them into any situation where they would release.

For what it is worth, the binding in the picture is a Marker 12.0 Titanium Piston control like these:

^thanks for the info. it says the breaks are 110mm... is that too wide for my skis which are 68mm wide in the middle?

Where are you seeing that it says 100mm?  From the pictures they look like the narrower variety.

i think i saw that when i googled those bindings... those ones may very well be skinnier. im just not sure how wide is too wide for my skis

I suspect that when you googled that you found the 12.0 Titanium FREE - which has separate toe and heel pieces rather than the floating type mount that the 12.0 Piston Control has.  In any event I would guess that you can buy the same bindings with different width brakes.   Funny thing is that they person selling them on ebay has absolutely no idea how they go together.  Here's a picture of a set on My K2's.  These have a narrower type brake.
