We offer a free ski binding mounting service for all skis & bindings purchased on our website or in store.
If you have already bought skis from us & would like to supply information for mounting your bindings - please follow this link & supply your details on our binding mounting form.
Details required are collected during the checkout process after you have selected your delivery destination & clicked "Payment". You will be asked to supply the following details:
> Ability level
> Ski boot sole length
You can choose to supply this data at a later date or have your skis & bindings delivered un mounted:
We set up the skis according to the information you give us. Please check that it is correct.
Using the ski boot sole length you supply, we will mount the bindings to the skis. On some skis this involves drilling into the body of the skis. Please ensure this measurement is correct as adjustments at a later date can be complicated (skis with binding systems where no drilling is required can easily be adjusted by a qualified technician).
All details are used to determine the release settings (DINs) on your bindings. For safety reasons it is important you supply us with accurate information. DINs can easily be adjusted by a qualified technician using a DIN chart to calculate your setting.
Please choose an appropriate level – If you select an advanced setting, your bindings are less likely to release during an aggressive manoeuvre (such as a fast turn or fall).
Beginner / Lower Intermediate (Type 1)
> Cautious skier
> Ski conservatively
> Prefer slower speeds
> Favour lower than average release / retention settings
> Or entry level skier uncertain of their classification
Intermediate / Advanced (Type 2)
> Average / performance skier
> Ski at a variety of speeds
> Prefer to ski on varied terrain, including most difficult runs.
> Or skiers who do not fall into either of the other two categories
Expert / Race (Type 3)
> Aggressive Skier
> Normally skis at high speed
> Prefer steeper & more challenging terrain
> Favour higher than average release / retention settings
SKI BOOT SOLE LENGTH
This is the length of the ski boot in millimetres. This is usually found on the outside boot, the most common place is on the side of the heal. It should have a number followed by mm (eg-306mm). This is not the size of the boot which is found in a similar place (eg- 27.0/27.5). Please note this is not your boot size but the measurement as shown below:
BINDING MOUNTING POSITION
We will always mount your bindings to your skis in the manufactures recommended position. Where there is no recommend setting we will use guidelines provided by the manufactures.
If you would like your bindings mounted elsewhere then please let us know when you place your order. You can do this in the order notes section during the checkout process. If you are unsure & would like some advice, please contact us. One of our ski experts will be more than happy to talk through the options with you..
IMPORTANT NOTE – We strongly recommend you have your boot to binding fit checked by a qualified technician before use. Without physically having your boot to set the bindings, we cannot perform final safety checks. Your local or resort ski shop should be able to do this for you, usually they do not charge for this.
