So i've had these binding for around 3 years, they've worked good until around a year ago. Whenever I try to spin past a 360, my left ski will just pop off. Even when I switch skis, It just comes off mid air. I'm not hitting them together or anything, they just come off. I made sure that my bindings were adjusted to my boots, and my dins are pretty high up. This is very annoying because I can't do all the tricks I want because my ski WILL fall off. The local ski shop also doesn't know what's wrong. Can someone please help me out or give me some sort of advice or suggestions? Thanks.
It sounds like your local ski shop is clueless. Can you strait air jumps without it coming off? Because its interesting you said only web you spin past 3. I'd assume something is loose in your toe piece making your boot slip out. It's hard to say without looking at them though
You might be initiating the trick incorrectly, ie not popping hard enough or trying to set the spin before you've popped or left the lip. This can lead to you catching an edge on the lip and releasing your ski. Can you consistently land 360s on other peoples' skis or on your previous set up or does this happen no matter which skis you're on? Otherwise, I'd look into the forward pressure; that frequently has something to do with chronic prerelease
"What you are feeling is a base burn. The toilet bowl cleaner probably has a really high pH , and therefore must be neutralized with an acid that has a really low pH. So basically, you just need to stuff your asshole with the most acidic shit you can find, battery acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, whatever you can get your hands on. its gonna be a chemical showdown in your asshole today my friend."
1. check the soles of your boots for excessive wear
2. if that is good check your forward pressure
3. Check to see that your din indicators are moving when you adjust the din, the screw could be moving while the indicator still reads (X) din
if no. 3 is happening your din could be set low while it might be indicating that it is still up to spec.
4. (might cost some money) have a shop check that your bindings are releasing at the din pressure that they are indicating
feel free to pm me if you have any troubleshooting questions, im pretty good with troubleshooting
I know exactly what the problem is, because it happened to me. My ski would come off on bumpy trails and in midair exactly how you described. Both ended up being affected. The slider piece under my heel was cracked. You should be able to see it by looking right down in that little well between the plate under the brake, and where the heelpiece goes down and attaches to those rail things.
I got both pieces replaced free of charge, but I'm not going to be using these bindings after this pair of skis dies. I'm upgrading to something better. Probably FKS or STH Driver.
I work at Mt Hood Summer Ski Camp. PM me with questions.
sounds like the forward pressure is wrong or the heel piece DIN setting isnt accurate. Have the shop actually test the binding this time or seriously think about going to a shop that knows how to properly mount and release test skis before giving them to customers.
