Useful guidelines to assist you when buying your gear.
Often overlooked, ski bindings are easily one of the most important pieces in your ski setup. From safety to performance, the right binding can make a huge difference.
There are a few different types of bindings that all serve separate purposes. It is important to take into consideration where you spend the most time on the mountain and how aggressively you will be skiing.
Downhill / Alpine
Alpine bindings constitute the largest majority of the market. Since these bindings are primarily focused on the retention/release in regards to the ski boot, they have the highest amounts of elasticity which guarantees the best release possible. When you’re looking at alpine bindings, it may be hard to tell what the difference is and why you would splash out a bit more for one versus the next. Here’s a few of the major differences:
Sole norm compatibility – a very important thing to keep in mind when buying a binding. Most recent alpine bindings can take a variety of sole norms including Alpine, AT, WTR, and Gripwalk. However, some can only take one or two of these. Check with us if you’re unsure on what your boot is compatible with.
When choosing an touring binding the first thing to think about is what your ratio of touring to resort skiing will be. While a lightweight pin binding will be great for a long tour, it won’t always hold up to the rigors of constant laps at the resort. Likewise a frame binding will provide a very solid platform to ski on and a great reliable release, but it will be a lot of extra work on day long and multi-day tours. Finding the balance is key.
Every ski binding comes with a different range of DIN settings. Often times you might be looking at two bindings that are identical besides different DIN ranges. What do you choose? When selecting a binding it is important to make sure the range provided will suit the DIN setting that you require. It is also important to make sure you are well within the range rather than sitting right at the minimum or maximum settings. We can help you out with figuring out where you fall in this range if you are unsure.
Make sure that any adjustments to ski bindings (even slight) are done by a certified ski technician. Ski bindings are your main safety equipment on your setup and even the smallest incorrect adjustment can result in a preventable injury.
Choosing the right width brake of your binding ensures that the brakes won’t overhang, drag, or get caught. You’ll want to choose the brake that is equal to or slightly wider than the ski itself. If you’re unsure about what size you’ll need give us a shout!
There are five main types of bindings which can safely take different types of ski boot soles. Below is a chart of the binding types vs the sole types and what is and isn’t compatible.
