Ski bindings 101, how to choose your bindings to go with your new custom skis.

Choosing The Right Binding

To choose a ski binding start by determining:

  • The waist width of your skis.
  • Your DIN setting (may require assistance from a certified ski binding technician).

The waist width of your skis will determine what size brakes you need, while your skiing ability, weight, height and boot sole length will determine the bindings’ release force setting (DIN). Once you’ve established an accurate DIN range and brake width, you can look at additional binding features.

*Always have a certified ski technician mount and make the appropriate adjustments to ensure the bindings operate safely.
