LazylightningP15s just came out, which is probably why some many have 18s. For a long time they were the only metal offering. That said, some bigger guys ride with their dins cranked to 13/14 in which case an 18 might offer more range if they decide to go up more
dant02I bought CAST the year pivot 15s were released and found 18s for way cheaper. But you are correct, I do not need an 18 din binding.
ericformanSam Anthamatten skis massive lines like a downhill racer over huge exposure. He refuses to use shifts, locked out tech toes don’t have the elasticity, and thus is on cast. Would not be surprised if he’s on 18s at 18 since a ski release could be fatal.
LazylightningReine barkered said for the more exposed fwt comps he cranks his pivots to 17 lmao
jcaI don't 'need' 18s but I ride at 12 so just get whatever's cheaper. A pair of my 18's are around 1000 days in and still trucking though.
BradFiAusNzCoCa1000 days?! By my calculation - that’s 10 Seasons at a generous 100 days a season. Damn those are some old FKSes
mattytruyep it is for the metal toe. plus, riding a 14 on pivot 14s is a lil sketch compared to riding a 14 on pivot 18s where that is simply middle of the range for that binding rather than maxed out
