I give it a 7, unless your ski is over 100mm then its a 3.
Yes and No. On the narrow skis it worded great. But don't let them touch a powder ski. I can say that I never had a problem with pre-release on my fujatives.
It looks nice, but thats not really what we are after when we are talking about saftey. The toe piece needs some work to stop it from loosening up. I did like how light weight it is, with no lifter they are nice.
Good value, mine cost $75 USD so I got two pairs. If you are looking for a really cheap but decent binding this is a good one.
This is a major problem for most rides on the 810's. The binding is very sensitive to the toe wing adjustment. This piece usualy loosens its self gradualy, so it must be adjusted. That said the release on these bindings are not bad on a ski in the narrower range. I have them on fujatives and they work great. However on a wider ski the side tortion on such a wideski makes it release while turning through crud. I had them on my Maden's and always had problems.
I dont ride rails so dont really have as much abuse, but mine are still almost perfect. They should have done something with the window for the DIN, it get scratched really easy.
