tomPietrowskiturn down the din if you have them maxed but to be honest I just leave the bindings.
MagDoesn't make a difference, as one of few people with a huber has proven after a 7 year long test.
tomPietrowskiI'm not sure man. If you have the spring complete compressed it will wear out faster then if it in the mid range. I. Would not bother turning it down unless it's absolutey maxed out but honestly not many people ride maxed dins.
MagWhat are you basing that on? I could see it potentially if you were turning it from max to min every day(and even then I would put a bet on it not mattering, I'm simply trying to find a way to agree), but once it's set to either? it's not gonna make a difference, as "proven".
tomPietrowskiBased on bindings which have been tested, skis I have worked on and general mechanics. Think of a spring if you completely compress it as fully as possible over time it will lose its ability to return to its original shape. It will only be slight but you will find that if you complelty max out a spring over time it will lose some of its spring and the din setting will become less consistent. It will not be much but will have an effect. But the only two skiers I know who fully max out there bindings are Dumont and petit. Sean's bindings were only 2 seasons old but with him having them complety maxed ie as far as the screw will turn he was actually getting a lower release then a new binding not maxed out.
