chimpansteezewhat do you set them at
LemuelUnfortunately no shop will mount them like that.
Profahoben_212From the photo....8.
Jon_Taffereven if i bring weed and a six pack?
chimpansteezeWell from the photo it looks like they're below 8. I was asking cause Im curious why someone would spend the extra money to get a binding with a 8-18 range when they're setting them well within the sweet spot of the pivot 14.
Profahoben_212No clue.....ive seen a lot of people doing this.....ive even hear people talking about bumping their dins up so they could buy 18s. Never understood it. If you ride at less than 10 or 12 you absolutely dont need a full metal binding imo.
I ride at 10-11 and i can't justify 18s really. I usually try for the 155s. That being said....i do have one pair of 18s.
jensenThe 18s have a fully pivoting toe piece whereas the 16s have a toe piece with break away wings. The 18 toe piece has more elasticity and less prerelease, even with DINs at low settings for the binding.
