Hi NS, I'm travelling to Chicago first week of May and I'm planning on buying some on sale bindings. I need a bit of help regarding which binding I should buy and which site/store I should purchase from.
I live in Switzerland and ski the Swiss/French Alps, I'm currently in the process of deciding on a powder ski for next season and I'm leaning towards the Praxis GPO in 187, however this is not finalized. I am 5'11" I believe (181-182) and I weigh 71-72 kilos, so kind of light for my height. I believe I want a binding that can go up to 16 DIN as I don't know what the future will bring, ie. workout so I weigh in the 80s-90s or save up enough money to go balls to the wall heli skiing.
Since I'm in Chicago I've found a few nearby dealers and I've found the 2014 Marker Jesters at 215$ which is definitely a good price in regards to what one has to pay for bindings here in Switzerland. I don't do any touring so I think this binding will be good for me. However it only comes in a brake width of 130, is this ok to put on a 115/116 wide ski? Thanks for your help, I know there is a thread which relates to this matter, but its a few years old now.
