Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
b-kulessentially they are the same bindings. same driver toe but with redesigned afd and roller. the heel is the guardian style heel, I'm pretty sure it functions the same just has a wider mounting pattern.
Caucasian_AsianIf you're concerned about durability of the STH2, pick up a pair of MOJO 15s. Its the only alpine binding I would buy (other than 916s).
k_howardhead bindings are junk
Caucasian_AsianI'm not talking about the 12s. I'm talking about the 15/17/18. Whole different ball game. One of the few bindings that can claim the be "all metal". Adjusted properly, they are just as food as my 916s.
k_howardi cant stand the know it alls on this website that try to say what gear is better than others because their mommy bought it for them and it looks cool.
im moving out to montana and i have killed many bindings in the terrain park.
I SKI AGGRESSIVE (i also fall aggressive!)
ive killed fks's, px12's, mojo 12's, marker griffons, and the list goes on.
now i swear by the STH's.. but they changed up their design and i am a little nervous. im used to the sty 14 and 16 drivers(and they are the most durable bindings i have ever touched) but i dont know anything about the STH2 WTR 16...
can anyone help me out? its going on my armada JJ's
k_howardIt could be me, but doesnt the matterial and the baseplate for the heel look less durable? i mean the track for the heal to move on looks plastic... the STH's i have are both on a metal track...
b-kulwhat else do you want to know?
CradleFillsI'm in the same boat as you with the sth2 13's minus the park skiing. I plan to get them and mount them on my SFB's. I read many reviews that said they are better on a wider ski platform because the overall binding platform is wider. This makes it easier to transfer from edge to edge than the previous salomon binding. I'm about to buy them in the next week for 170$
k_howardyou trust them?
heres a couple red flags for me..
-they are fairly new.. why are they $170?
-plastic heel track
