One binding that suits both new-school and traditional applications

Until now, skiers planning to spend lots of time in the park had a tough decision to make when it came time to mount a binding to a new ski. They could center-mount it for balanced swing-weight and good park-performance, or they could mount it in conventional fashion—aft of center—for traditional all-mountain performance. The Schizo system, available on Marker’s Jester and Baron bindings, lets you have it both ways. A cable-and-track system allows the binding to be mounted somewhere in between, then moved forward or back over a six-centimeter range.

The Choice Is Yours

The Choice Is Yours

No plate, no lifter, no disconnect: Salomon’s STH14 lets nothing come between ski and skier.

With the trend back toward flat skis, consumers get to choose their own bindings again.

"The march toward all-inclusive system skis continues apace,” we reported in our update on bindings two years ago. “Bad news,” we went on to note, “if you have a perfectly good binding that you were hoping to recycle.” It was a troubling trend for anyone concerned with personal choice or the cost of ski equipment. Touting the undeniable merits of system skis—where ski and binding are designed and sold together as a seamless, smooth-flexing whole—manufacturers were morethan happy if they could convince you that you needed to buy a binding—their binding—every time you bought a ski.
