Just got a new pair of skis and their waist is 98mm and the bindings I'm getting are 95mm. This is oviously going to be a tight fit but just wondering if this is a "ok" idea or a "bad" idea. Wondering if anyone has had any problems with this.
Try them out. If they are a bit tight see if the shop will swap them when they moun them. They should be fine though. You could maybe bend tem but I don't like doing that as it makes the brakes stick out even with the boot in the binding.
I see this kind of question quite a bit on here and being a primarily North American forum I do sometimes wonder if it's a lack of familiarity with metric measurements... If you think about the difference being a whole 3mm, which means you're talking about 1.5mm on each side of the ski, that's about the width of a grain of rice. There's probably at least that much "give" in the brakes since they're not exactly a precision assembly and the tolerances are relatively large.
