My BSL is right at the top of the range for the small binding. Would it be better to go with the M/L so I'm in the middle of the size range or does it matter
Yeah, it's probably better to go with the M/L so you're in the middle of the range.
Does the Black Diamond Fritschi Diamir have a height adjustment on the toe piece? I would like to wear my alpine boots with this set up.
toe height is adjustable.
Hi, this is my first posting, you guys are great community.
Is there a difference between Fritschi Freeride Pro 2010-11 and 2012 model. I am 5.9 and 210 lbs. Was reading a lot of reports bindings are breaking as of plastic. Is there an improvement in 2012 model known ?
What about DIN 12 ? Enough for heavy aggressive skier, according to some reports Fritschi DIN 12 does not match the real DIN 12 values ?
Thanks for the answer,
I really think this binding could have been great! I was hoping they would be a good lightweight 50/50 inbounds/out of bounds binding. My very first day on the binding the toe piece snapped off completely while turning on a simple groomed run. I am 6'4" 200 lbs so maybe if I were smaller these bindings would work for me. Felt great until they broke.
Write your question here...I was Amy office about 2 hours ago and put these bindings into my cart. I believe they must bake been last years
Model. They were priced at $299. Size
Medium. 120mm Wide. I am now out of the office looking on the website using my iPhone. But I don't see the product. Could it be on hold bc it's in my cart on the computer at the office? If so may I buy them now?
There is one pair left on amazon 120mm, but it does not say what size, kind of strange, but $299 - good luck
Set -2cm from factory line at 315 BSL, rides EXCELLENT.
SM 260 - 315 mm
ML 285 - 340 mm
XL 330 - 365 mm
Hi. I am trying to decide between these bindings and the Marker Baron. I will probably be doing 60/40 backcountry/resort. Any recommendations on which to go with?
Tough question. Both will tour fine, but the Baron will ski better. The Fritschi will be faster on/off because you don't need to take ski off to de skin. The Baron requires the ski off and a step to lock the binding in. Be realistic about use, but at 60/40 I'd likely go Fritschi.
Wondering what the recommended BSL for this Medium binding is
285-340mm (from BD's site)
I have a pair of sir Francis bacons, they are 115 underfoot. Would the 120 break be too wide?
They definitely will not be too wide. Any wider waist and you'd have to go with a larger brake or try bending it. You'll only have 5mm of clearance with the 120mm, but that will work just fine.
They will not be too wide, it's 120mm across. So you will have 5mm on each side. That's 1/2 cm on each side. A very small amount. Nothing to worry about. You'll be fine.
I was given a pair of 09/10 new Fischer Watea 114 skis. I don't know what binding to place on them. I was thinking about the marker FT12 or Fritchi Eagle. My concern is the binding width. Do they make a binding wide enough for the ski? I won't be doing serious touring. Only side country out west, and some back hills touring in northern michigan. Any advice
Both the Marker and the Fritschi have brakes wide enough to fit your Wateas.
Hi. Can you tell me what size boot this version of the small Freeride Pro will take? Thanks
The small fits boots between sizes 4.5 and 9. Make sure you check your boot sole length as that is what really determines the size binding you need and it can vary between manufacturers. The small binding fits a BSL between 260 and 315mm.
I see these bindings have a 120mm brake width, but are there other brakes available for wider skis?
I believe the 120mm brake is the widest available from Fritschi. They may fit a ski slightly larger though. I have the 108mm brake and it would fit a ski up to approximately 115mm in the waist.
