A wide, reliable binding for hard-charging experts and big mountain schralpers.
- A 4-14 DIN range and 25mm of elastic travel in the heel, the longest of any binding, prevent unwanted releasing when skiing steep, exposed terrain
- Titanium angled lateral arms in the heel and four points of contact in the toe provide incredible power transmission for hard turns at high speeds
- High forward pressure in the heel increases rebound and overall control over your ski
- Generous vertical and lateral elastic travel in the toe reduce shock in variable snow and help prevent releasing during a recovery
- Reinforced housing enhances durability for many season of abuse
- Wide mounting zone works best with fat powder and big mountain freeride skis

Major design flaw
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Used 3 days and then FAIL. The screws that attach the rear portion of the binding run through a plastic casing (see pic 1) and are held in place by a metal bracket. I was skiing some bumps at the top of Jackson Hole and had a catastrophic failure - the binding broke clean off the ski as a result of this! Luckily I wasn't injured, just confused as to why it happened. The mounting was done by a pro and most bindings use stronger materials to attach the binding to the ski. Another example of you get what you pay for...
nice bindings beware the brakes
I like the bindings but when i ordered the xxl brakes they shipped the xl instead. Missed a day at big sky due to visiting 5 ski shops looking for the right size and model year. Back country refunded 40 but not the hassle factor.
I was wondering what the main differences...
I was wondering what the main differences are between these and the FKS 140s. I'm hoping to get a pair of line Mr. Pollard's Opus' and am really just looking for durability as I have broken bindings before due to lack of quality.
I'm also looking between Salomon and Rossignol bindings and trying to decide which to go for as far as quality and price goes.
The FKS have a swivel heal design and these don't. So the FKS heal piece will release vertically and horizontally

Hey I recently bought a pair of Volkl Bridges 187 cm. Will the brake clear this ski? Should I go with the XXL? Thanks.
Go for the XL brake - they will clear your bridges with room to spare as they are 100mm and your skis' waist is 95 mm. I ski this binding often and really like it!
Thanks for your quick response!!

Hey Guys I just bought a pair of K2 obSETHed 189 cm, was wondering if the brake will clear (and if so, the Xl or XXL). Thanks!
Thanks for the question. With the K2 obSETHed, you'll want to go with the XXL version as the brake is 115mm wide and you'll only need to bend the brake a minimal amount if need be.
Thanks for the quick answer!
will these fit on skis with a 120 mm waist?...
will these fit on skis with a 120 mm waist? ive seen some people say theyre 115, or 100, so im just checking before i buy
Yes they will. I have these mounted on my 122 hell bents but you do need to bend the brakes a bit.

Will these bindings fit on a 140mm waist ski?
The brake width listed is 120mm. A 20mm difference is likely too much. The max you can usually (safely) bend the arms is a 10mm diff. (5mm per side).
I pretty much forgot about them, so they must have been great.

Would the brake width work on Rossi. women's S7's?
On the Rossignol Axial2 140 Ski Binding, the XL version has a 100mm brake width and the XXL has a 120mm brake width. Since the S7 W is 110mm at the waist, the XXL version of this binding will work with that ski.
Will the brakes on this binding be the...
Will the brakes on this binding be the correct size for the JJ Armada skis?
The Axial2 140XL comes with 100mm brakes that would be too narrow for the JJ.
Lucky for you, the Axial2 140XXL comes with brakes that fit up to 115mm which just happens to be the waist of the JJ. Whip out that plastic, Twavo!
Hey I was wondering I got the surface no times 162cm and the waist width is 76. I pretty much ski all park so I want light weight bindings do you have any suggestions on a good park bindings that's light weight and under $200?
