        Overall

        The best binding, I say that with absolute certainty. If you're bigger or better, check out the FKS 180 XXL for pow, and the L for park.

        I honestly couldn't advocate for a product more, it's a night and day difference between these and others on the market. 10/10 for sure.

        Performance

        This often comes down to release characteristics for bindings, so again, I was really happy. If you're heavier or really charge, check out the FKS 180. You won't be disappointed as the DINS on those suckers go up to 18.

        Design

        Bright, bright orange! It's that classic FKS look that everyone loves. Steezy, noticeable, trademark. You won't find another pair of bindings that screams, "I'm the business" more than these.

        Value

        These bindings are expensive, there's no doubt about it. But I am so sick of breaking plastic pieces on Salomon or Atomic bindings that any price is worth a set it and forget it charging binding. So happy with the value of mine, you won't be disappointed.

        Characteristics

        I ran my DIN at 12, I am 190 lbs and ski aggressively. I never had any troubles with the bindings popping out unnecessarily. They did, however, release when I ate sh** or was too far forward and in knee-breaking range. I've been really happy with the FKS for years.

        Durability

        Rock solid. All-metal construction means that there isn't a small plastic ridge holding you to your ski like on some others. It also means you have less leeway once they're mounted in terms of forward pressure, so get it right the first time.

        I once had a pair of skis break in between my feet because the ski was less strong than the binding. You won't have an issue with these, I am confident of that.
