More skiing fun with the optimal binding
Ski bindings are state-of-the-art high-tech instruments without which a ski cannot be used. Their main task is to connect the ski to the ski boot. However, bindings also have a great influence on the ski's handling and safety. When buying, make sure that the binding is suitable for the preferred terrain and type of ski.
Skiing is not a safe sport, so you should attach great importance to excellent equipment. Ski bindings are not an insignificant factor in this regard, as timely release in case of a fall can minimize the risk of injury. For this, you should definitely have your ski bindings adjusted by a professional.
There are two methods for exact adjustment: the tibia method measures the width of the shinbone head, while the weight method requires weight, age, height and boot sole length for adjustment. This method is the most commonly used. You should check the binding setting annually, as wear can change the release value. You should also readjust the binding if you change your skiing style.
While race bindings are very elastic and equipped with strong springs to withstand high loads, bindings for touring skis are a flexible combination of Nordic and safety bindings. The heel remains free for the ascent and can be fixed again for the descent. In addition to these types of bindings, you can find the optimal binding system for every type of ski at great prices in our online shop.
