Selecting a bindings starts with your intended use for the bindings.
Lift Served: If you spend all of your time solely riding lifts to access terrain, you will be best served by a traditional step-in binding. These bindings should be selected by your ability level, DIN setting and type of skiing you do. If you are more aggressive than average or lighter/heavier, then that would affect the selection of your bindings in this category.
Racing: If you are racing or skiing on a ski with a waist width under 80mm, you would would need a racing category binding.
Touring: If you are touring, you would need to answer a couple of questions first.
Pin-tech or not? Binding selection in touring starts with determining what type of boots you have. Some bindings will only work with pin-tech boots, while others will work with a traditional alpine non-pintech boot. For an aspiring touring skier without pin-tech boots, we make frame bindings, which allow you to step in with a regular alpine ski boot.
