Bindings 2003: New Players, New Rules

Bindings 2003: New Players, New Rules

As if the smorgasbord of binding options wasn't broad enough already, now there are two new players: Nordica and Line. Now more than ever, any skier should be able to find the right binding at the right price. But consumers will also discover new limitations. As companies circle wagons around their ski, boot and binding products-now referred to collectively as "systems"-choices diminish. System makers argue that their individual components work best together. In other words, the whole is greater than its parts.

And they're making it more attractive to buy in on a whole system. But choosy consumers may still wish to mix and match.

Here's what's new in bindings for 2003. Manufacturers brought key models to Stowe, Vt., last spring for on-snow testing. We put them through their paces, and have noted our recommendations, as well as which Skier Types they're appropriate for. (See Skier Type definitions in the related links to the right.) Prices are suggested retail.
