are race bindings good reliable bindings? do they have any releasing problems like do the pre-release or not release at all? I'm thinking of getting the rossi fks 120 race binding, but how would the compare to something like a p12?
^^ wtf are you talking about? A majority of pro skiers use race stock bindings over normal bindings....
Race bindings are similar to normal stock bindings, except they are usually made of metal and have a higher din. Due to metal they are a little bit heavier than notmal bindings, but the are durable as fuck.
They tend to be much more reliable than normal bindings.
They kick ass, release when you need them too and only when you need them to. You do have to be big enough or ski hard enough the justify the high din.
if you get a chance to pick of a Salomon s916 or s920( din 14-20....so only if your nuts), Look P18, or any of the Rossignol FKS bindings I would do it for sure.
I'm using race stocks on almost all of my skis next year, excluding the skis I tour on and my park skis(which, soon, will also have race stock bindings). For me they are worth the extra investment, for some people, though, they are overkill.
So, to sum that up....GET THEM!
Looking for ski stuff?? Buy mine....

depend wut fks 120s ur talking about though cause there are two kinds. one has the normal look p12 heelpeice and the other has the fks 155,185,p18 heelpeice but only goes to twelve. the one with the normal heelpeice is the exact same as a p12 jib
The fks 120s are lighter than the regular binders because the lake of the heeltrack which accounts for a ton of weight on the stock bindings. So however said the fks series is lighter than the stock is correct.
i dont know if its worth spending the extra money on those, they are extremely similar to the p12's, and i dont know about you but ive never heard of anybody whos had a problem with the p12's, so it may not be worth it
I will weigh the FKS 12 out tomorrow and comapre it to the P12 Jib of last year for a weight comparison. S916's and S920's should be available in early August. FKS 185's and 120's are available now. www.untracked.com
