A burly metal binder for skiers that never ... ever ... want their skis to pop off mid-run.

If your wicked-fast lines and exposed cliff drops lend no room for error, clamp down inside the metal 4FRNT Thunderbolt Ski Binding and keep your ski secured and your head in the game. In no-fall zones, a loose ski could be the end of you, so let this 8-18 DIN binder provide the confidence you need to go big and recover when things don't work out. If you don't want this bad boy cranked to 18 in the first session of the season, its dynamic heel and toe piece can release during awkward falls so you don't end your season before it begins.

  • With a DIN range of 8-18, this binder was made for the hardest-charging skiers on the mountain who ski steep terrain where falling and losing a ski isn't an option
  • Diagonal Toe piece features Four Rollers and gliding inserts that provide 180-degree releasing capability (both vertically and horizontally), which provides protection to your knee ligaments during the most violent forward or backward twisting falls
  • Oversized Anti Friction Device prevents getting hung up on your toe piece during rag-doll falls down a landing
  • BoilerPlate Forward Pressure uses a reinforced steel forward pressure track to ensure a reliable lock and plenty of durability throughout your season
  • Zero Ramp Angle yields easy switch riding and provides a neutral position as you roll into big kickers
  • Metal housing and steel components ensure a sure lock and provide durability for charging the park and big-mountain terrain
  • Choose a 97mm, 115mm, or 130mm brake width (depending on availability) to match your plank

The Deadbolt 18/ Thunderbolts from 4FRNT/Tyrolia/Head are the most rock solid pair of bindings a man can buy for $400. I rock them hard at 16 and they have yet to pre-release me into the scary terrain that I ride. I've even had a heel piece rip out of the ski before the binding agreed to let go of my boot. Now it is a little heavy because of its full metal construction, but hey, what binding that goes to 18 DIN is going to be as light as a feather? It is similar in weight to a pair of Look/Rossignol PX 18s that I have.

Bottom line: If you're set on going big instead of going home, get this binding.

So I have had the pleasure of skiing these badboys all last season. They stayed on during the big hucks that occurred during that week of snow in LCC. At the midway point last season I moved them to my Renagades with a MFD plate and skiing them just as hard with no problems. In all Reality that setup ended up weighing less that a Dynastar Cham 128 with only Look Pivot 18. The only problem that I had with these binders was that the front hinge on the toe piece came off after two days but in all seriousness that is only cosmetic and has no real effect on the binders staying on my feet when they wanted to.

TL;DNR version: Stayed on when I wanted them to, easily cosmetically damaged.

i just got the 4front CRJ 180. it has a 115 waist. will a 115 break fit that, or do i need a break a little bigger?

Best Answer Responded on

A 115 brake will fit, but if it stays up you can shave the little black things on the brakes to make it fit
