i need some new bindings for my new invaders when they come in and i cant decide which ones to get. ive heard alot about the look p12 jib but it looks a little weak to me, i want to get the 4frnt bindings but before i spend that much money on bindings id like to know what other people think of the deadbolts and other types
Well I can assure you that the p12 jibs will stand up to whatever you can put them through in the park. I have them on my everyday skis and I've taken them out of the big couloir at Big Sky at well over 40mph with the DIN at 8 and they held.
Look bindings, weak? Thats about the most outragous thing I've ever heard. A lot of people use them, you see them posted all over for a reason, yet you'll never read a thread about how they broke when they shouldnt have.
Noobs rock, assholes dont.
Go with Look or Rossi, The P12 or 120 are all most people need. The P18 and equivalents are stellar bindings that'll last forever, but there are very very very few people that actually need them. And there's no difference between the P12 and the P12 Jib, so go with the cheaper one. Just cause it says Jib doesn't make it better or worse.
deadbolts have the upward toe release option which is pretty sick, tyrolla x17 has a 150 degree rotating heelpiece, and the salomon z12 ti are the lightest/best binding on the market if you ask moi, px12 ti are strong amazing elasticity, tyrola mojo15 are solid bingings. im just tired of people jumping on the "only look/rossi bindings are good" bandwagon
rossi and look do have the virtue of a multi directional toe, unlike any other binding out there, along with a pissload of elasticity. They are quite durable. Not to mention if there ever is a problem, they have amazing warranties. no questions asked.
I think that about 3 people above me said that either p12 is so good, or that it will withstand anything unless your huge...WRONG, if your going to get an axis or p get at least the 14...But if you want something thats Extreme go with the FKS, they are almost indistructable.
The biggest problem with the p14's or 12's is that either you blow a rivet piece, or snap/bend the brake...
This is all depending on how hard you ride and what kinda stuff you do..if your doing lots of switch stuff or landing switch..go with the fks for sure
Racers - You don't own the mountain
Big Mountain skiiers - don't knock it if you havn't tried it
Park Rats - Its not about attitude
Mogul Skiiers - You don't know everything about skiing
Its about having a good time, don't be a generic robot!
Well, you're not that big, but either way, you're right, most people are fine with the din only going that high. And you shouldn't have your din cranked to the max, they perform better if theyre a couple notches back of max.
I just bought some new Oakley FSB 2558's and they're XXXXXTreme
Dude, joke's totally on them, you should make a t-shirt that says 'all you fools suck' and on the back it can say 'I rule coz T-dawg said so' and yeah, you'll be rockin it shibby, new steeze brah, wikkid! ~PhattTim
There are very few bindings worse than markers IMHO. I was conned into buying a pair before I really got into park skiing, and they are definately not what you want. Go with a pair of rossi's, I have them on my other ski's, and they work great.
well this was an unexpected bump...i bought a pair of px12's and i broke em about a month after i got them...yeah i hate look/rossi so i bought a pair of deadbolt 614's and have had 70+ days on them and it was tyhe best decision ive ever made.
