Bindings for Atomic Crimson Ti?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I just picked up a brand new pair of Atomic Crimson Ti's.  As luck would have it, they did not come with bindings mounted.  Does anyone have a recommendation on a good match with these skis?

 

Thanks.

Did they come with the ProTrak mounted on the ski, or is it a flat deck? If it has the track, you NEED XTO binding, which should have been sold with the ski.

No Protrack, just a flat deck.  There for I have some flexibility.

Where'd you find those?  It's tough to find them without bindings and a friend of mine is looking for some for AT.

Your choices are endless then.

 

My favorite binding is the Atomic Race 1018 on every type of ski. I removed a ProTrak from a Crimson Ti and put the 1018 on (using the higher/wider Ride tracks) and it brought the ski to life again. My second choice of binding would be a Neox 614. The new X-Race bindings are fantastic, but the brakes are not wide enough for over 70mm.

After decades of using the Ess VAR design bindings, I have come to appreciate the benefits of the floating heel characteristics. Fixed toe and heel bindings are fine on soft snow dedicated skis as there is no need to have uninterupted flex, or park/pipe models where weight savings and low height are required. Their limitations are that they restrict flex the length of the binding.

Salomon's SmartTrak design (same as the ProTrak) is more than adequate for 95% of the public, but is not my favorite as there is a slight disconnect between the boot and ski. Yes I'm a princess and can feel the nuances biggrin.gif.

I have the same dilemma, got a pair of Crimson TIs without bindings. I want to mount bindings on a rail system not to restrict flex, what options do i have? Tyrolia/Head powerrail system seems interesting, but I cant find any reviews for it yet nor could i find a website that sell the system.

I just purchased a crimson mounted with the Protrac 12.  I have no idea if this is a good binding or not.  I have even though about replacing with a Marker IBC binding.  Any thoughts.... thanks.

 

I feel as though the protrac 12 xto seems a bit loose.  Mabe thats just the rail characteristic.  I'm not sure.  Any help would be great.

The ProTrack 12 is an Atomic version of a Salomon Z12.  It will hold up.  The wiggle is the binding on the rail.  With a boot in the system, the bindings should be solid.
