We are still one of the few ski shops in Europe stocking the KneeBindings with their lateral heel release. If you have knee problems and wish to minimise the risk of further damage these are definitely worth serious consideration and our customers who have made the switch are very complimentary about their performance.
New this coming season, apart from the Kneebinding Core (Race and Freestyle), are the Scott/Salomon Warden's, (essentially a version of the Guardian without the "hike and ride" facility) and it's the first full season of the Fritschi Vipec binding, the first tech binding with full torsional release in both the heel and toe units; these bindings are also exceptionally light.
Noticeably heavier than Fritschi’s Vipec or the Dynafit’s, but using a Pin fixing on the toes and a standard Alpine rather than Tail Pin heel retention are Marker’s new Kingpin binding. Details on their release date and availability are still somewhat sketchy (as I write this) but rest assured as soon as they are available to us we’ll have some in as it looks another very interesting bit of kit with fully adjustable ISO/DIN release values on both heel and toe units.
Whilst for most people the manufacturer’s recommended position for mounting the bindings on their skis is just fine, however, on more and more freestyle and even freeride skis the manufacturers are now marking a “suggested range”, usually covering 7-10cms within which they consider their skis perform as they would wish.
Having the bindings mounted to your own personal preference is most relevant to Freestyle skiers. Some like them mounted True Centre, so they have exactly the same amount of ski in front of and behind their shins (helps avoid tip drop, particularly during aerial rotations and when jibbing) others will come back towards the tails. It may be back as little as 10mm from True Centre, others may go back 30, 40 even 50mm, occasionally all the way to the All Mountain Freeride position usually between 7cms and 10cms; it is a very personal preference.
Other skiers who are involved in Backcountry, Touring or Telemark skiing sometimes have their own preferred binding mounting position. If you have a specific request, or if you want to discuss the merits of the various options open to you, do please call, phone or e-mail us and we’ll do our very best to advise you and then mount up accordingly.
