OUR TIPS TO CHOOSING YOUR SKI BINDINGS
You bought new skis and you now want to equip bindings well suited to your practice? You're struggling to differentiate all models? What are the indicators and settings on the bindings?
Here are some tips and answers to help you make your decision and select the model that suits you best.
However, keep in mind that your bindings are designed to limit the risk of injury from falls, while providing the necessary support to ski with maximum pleasure.

1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT MODEL FOR YOUR SKIS AND YOUR PRACTICE
Most skis are now available with a pair of associated ski bindings. The piste and all mountain skis are often equipped with interfaces and compatible editing systems with only one type of ski binding.
Beyond the design, color and mounting compatibility, the ski binding’s characteristics offered in packages are adapted to those skis and practice to which they are intended: so, trust the manufacturer and the retailer when they advise you a complete set.
In all cases, the range of adjustment of your bindings will allow some latitude adjustment. Finally, if you select your bindings yourself, check the width of the brakes so they adapt to the width of the skis.
