The 2016 Rossignol 140 FK bindings are a must have on any ski. They are arguably the safest binding in the ski industry due to the new technology pivot heel piece. Unless you are planning on setting your dins over 14, these binding will be the best investment you've made. Having a safe good binding is necessary to your ski gear. I have broken a pair in the past over the course of a year which was unfortunate. Most ski shops won't have replacement pieces to these bindings because they believe so strongly in them. The 2016 pair I have now has kept me safe at all times on the mountain.
