between 8 and 10....for regular skiing i try to keep them at 8ish because i hurt my knee last year from having them too high. when it comes comp time i crank it to 10 so i wont come out unless its a bad fall

don't look directly at her, girls are evil, they make it feel like our underwear shrunk. but why...WHY!!-twix 182
Since your obviously not sure what to set them at you are gunna wanna take them into a shop let em know ur skill and what u plan on doing with the skis let them set it up take em out for a day or 2 and adjust if u feel its not right for u
your doing a very dumb thing maxing out your din settings....binders are deisgned to be used a the middle of the din range...if you have a binding with a max din of 10 and your pegging it at 10...you are not only gonna pre-release more often due to lack of rebound but also risk serious knee injuries (PCL) due to to much foward pressure....
din's dont make the man...your skiing does.
Once again, ONLY idiots max out their dins, if your that hard core that you need to have a 15 din setting you should have bindings that go to 18-21...race stock! which means HEAVY metal
well I'm scared my boots will pop out and get me killed hoping into a gnarly chute so I'd rather take the risk on my knees. I usually keep them around 12. But make sure you don't set your dins too close to the low or high end of the range (within 1 point of max or min) because I've been told by a lot of people that they don't work properly so close to the limit.
If you have any doubts about the correct setting tell me your boot size, height, weight and what kind of skiing you do and I'll give you a rough estimate, I was a tech for a few years so I can prolly guess closeish
i use to have my 810ti's at 10 with all the foreward pressure all the way up dangerously and still popped out
now i have fks race bindings and have them set at 9 and tore my miniscus and dislocated my shoulder on the first hit at blackcombs pipe doing a allyoop 5 decking out and my skis didnt come out I LOVE EMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
^^^good point, dont get to close, on a 10 max binding, dont get over 8, because on 9 it wont work properly and you wont see it open on 10.
"for reals is everyone in here kidding?? OK first of all if you dont know what chads gap is thats kinda lame. Secondly They have been hitting chads gap for some time now. Im surprised now one has seen the cllip of candide thovex sticking a D spin over chads gap. Its kinda been around alot and been in a few articles." - TravisMC in a thread where everyone made fun of the creator who asked if chads had been hit with skis. thx alot
i find for the bindings i have and the weight i am at, 81/2 is best for me... it always happens like, im riding, i hit something, and i land hard and am like" shit i with my bindings would..." and then they pop off...its a beautiful thing
i used to ride some shitty markers and what people are saying here is correct, do not put them to the max. thats what i did and when i took a hard fall, instead of my skis releasing they came off because the shitty bindings were destroyed.
