Binding colors? Brake width? PE's?
Hey i just ordered this years PE's (05/06) so the black red and white ones, and i need to know what binding i can mount them with, i'm looking at either scratches 120 or Look p12 Jib... but the only Look jibs i've seen are those ugly blue TM coloured ones, and i don't know anything about scratches. Pep uses white bindings somehow, but i don't even know if they sell those. Does anyone know the colour schemes?
Also, the problem with p12's and power 120's is that they all have lifters, which i'm not sure i want. Or are there normal p12's without lifters (or only the Jib/scratches)...
Also, since the PE is now 85mm underfoot, do i realy need wide brakes? and in that case does the jib binding even fit anymore?
so many problems... any help appreciated!
The Jib binding also comes in red, however it is quite rare.... It does not have a lifter. You will have to either bend some regular brakes (easily done) so that they fit, or you can just buy some wides for like $20 extra.
I dont know too much at all about the white colorway... sorry.
You could just wait intil they come out with the new binding this year without the penis heelpeice, and see what they look like.
I personally like the blue jib binding.... especiall with new PEs... but whatever floats your boat man...

You can aks they shops to mount you bindings without lifters, they don't suggest it though.
one version of the 120s has very little or no lift. maybe 5 mm max
i rock the pow like none other
black and red s912s with 95mm brake duh

I hate it when snowboarders think they are so cool because they can 50 50 a rail
Who cares what colour the bindings are you pussy. Just get ones that work. And don't get the lifters because they cost more, get the normal P12s or the Jibs... but if you can get the lifters most shops can take the lifter thing off for you.
^i agree this post is stupid.. who cares wat color bindings are... the heal is usually covered up by yur pants... just go with black or sumthing.
The white ones you see pep with are probably the rossignol power 18 (i think thats what they're called, can't remember right now), they're the race stock bindings; and i wouldn't suggest you use them. And honestly if you're really stuck on color, you can just paint the bindings, i've seen it done and its pretty cool.
I knew when i created this thread that there would be at least one tool who would feel oblidged to point out to me that "colors don't mean anything" and that "your a pussy dookz" just so they appear so knowledgeable and carefree on this site. The fact of the matter is, I don't care what your oppinion is on this matter, if i am paying for a binding with my money at least i can get a binding with colours that i like.
If, like in this case, there arent any real matching bindings, then i'll just stick with the look jibs and i'll be more than satisfied.
To claim that colours don't mean jack just so you can appear cool is clearly stupid when it costs you nothing to get what you want.
just get some of the p12 jibs and you easily just bend the regular brakes or buy the wide ones which is pointless. Does binding color even matter who the shit looks at the color of bindings?
hate it but you gotta know, love it when the money roll
PEOPLE! the p12 jib is just a damn p12 painted with TM graphics! stop being so fuckin stupid. the only ski a p12 jib should EVER be on is a troublemaker. otherwise, just buy a p12. its the same damn binding, and they can easily be had for 150 on ebay. and no, most shops wont just mont your bindings without the lifters, cause they need to grind the screws down so they dont stick out the bottom of the ski. if you want lifted bindings (of any manufacturer) you should grind the screws down yourself, to advoid pissing off the shop guys or making it more expensive for yourself. but yes, go on ebay, buy a red and black rossi power 120. tada, cheap bindings that actually look good on your ski.
i looked on google but all i could find was 3D Animation porn-sxmarty6

It's not hard to grind the screws down, anyone can do that.
