Hello everyone. I am a park/all mountain skier and also an instructor from southern ontario. I am 6’0” (183cm) and 225lbs (102kg). I was originally rocking a 7 DIN for a level 2 skier, but I landed switch and pre ejected on my attack 13s and bent the brake wayyyy forward. So then I decided to bump it to a 8 DIN where I haven’t had that issue since, but yesterday I was skiing 15cm of powder and did a 180 to nose butter and ejected. What setting could you guys recommend for me? Im not that great in the park, just some rails, and 1s and 3s of small jumps.
What is your:
Boot Sole Length
and Skier type
These combined with a DIN chart will determine what to set the value at.
That being said, it has less to do with the value as it has to do with the force required to release, so if you want to have your bindings tested (Probably a really good idea) you can take them to a shop and have them tested.
Usually just look up the chart for your binding brand and go off that. However, I find that a lot of times the charts are super liberal and you have to crank it up a bit. It also depends on the condition of your bindings. Worn in bidings will need a bit higher din. I’m 130lb and I ride squires at 10. I have stiff revolts that I like to butter. But take a lot more force than the average ski. So the din really depends on the chart but also some personal preference should go into it
Just have your tech adjust them for a type 3 or 3+ skier so that forward pressure etc is adjusted, you shouldn’t be riding that low unless you have injuries
For comparison I’m 184cm , 200lbs, shop sets my dins at 9.5 on paper but they come out @11
