awesome all-rounder

does the job, does it well. XXL actually fits 120mm which I just got mounted on a pair of 2011 Surface Anthony B new life's

Nice match for S86 freeride

I have these mounted on Rossi S86 Freeride. No complaints in Wisconsin hardpack, ice, or the fresh 5 inches I skied last week. Lots of metal inspires more confidence in me. They will get their true test in Jackson Hole next week.

I skied the crap out of my new skis and bindings and I have 0 issues or complaints. They worked flawlessly at jackson Hole where temps varied from -30 to +20. They never released pre-maturely. They released when appropriate :) Next season I was in Utah and it was warm. Lots of mashed potatoes and still no issues. They carved Deer Valley groomers with ease.

being on a budget, is it worth the extra doe for these or will freeski2 120 do fine with my new k2 revials?

Responded on

These are more than worth the extra money, the FreeSki doesn't even compare. Better release characteristics, better duirability, better safety, less (no) prerelease... You can't go wrong with FKSes.

Posted on

Is there a forward pressure adjustment on these bindings? I just bought a pair of skis that have these on them mounted for a 305mm boot, which is what I wear. Is there any other adjustments for my specific boot on these bindings, besides the DIN setting?

Responded on

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the forward pressure adjustment appears to be in the threaded rods connecting the dildo part of the heelpiece to the baseplate.

Responded on

col696969 (the below answer) is correct.

I want to put these on the S110W 159. They're 98 wide. Too much for the L. Would the XXL be too big?

No, the 115 would be perfect.

any body know if the brakes off these will fit the older FKS 155? and if so where do i get wider ones? and if not where do i get wider brakes to fit the FKS 155

Responded on

You can't replace the brakes, bring them to good shop & they should be able to bend them for ya.

Best Answer Responded on

Write your answer here...You an idiot most shops wont ben them because it creates a weak spot in the brake

I have some Rossignol Phantom SC87 170s that I need to get bindings for...will these work? If not, does anyone have a recommendation?
Thanks, Lisa

Best Answer Responded on

The specs for your skis are 130/87/115 mm. 87mm is the waist size. The size Large in these bindings works for a 90mm waist so they will fit just perfectly with the skis you have now!

Definitely get the XXL. You will have a sick setup!

Will I have any problems putting the XXL brake on Line Prophet 90s? I know the brakes are way wider than the skis are, so will this create any sort of problem?

Responded on

Get the L they would fit much better and not be dragging

Responded on

when you into a turn the big brakes will cut into the snow, just get the 90mm FKS

Do you think these breaks will work right...

Posted on

Do you think these breaks will work right out of the box with armada jj 's or will i need to tweak em. The jj's are 115 at center and brakes will definitely be back of that, probably closer to 120. I dont mind bending, curious to see if anyone out there has tried this binding on the jj's or something else this size.

Responded on

Right out of the box they might work but a little stretching of them still works fine

Responded on

I just had the Pivot 14's put on my JJ's. The break fits around the waist but seems so close that they might not perform properly. I'm going to bend them just the slightest bit. Should be perfect.

Posted on

Has anyone found that the DIN on the toepiece varies by up to 3 DIN settings when the boot is in the binding verses not in?? (it does this by itself)This occurs when the toepiece pivots slightly between the boot being in v out.
It is occuring on both toepieces, so I assume that this is normal?

Best Answer Responded on

That is not how this binding functions, and nobody here or at Rossignol has heard of this problem on this binding, so the problem must be extremely rare. So, it is defective.

Great Binding

If you are thinking about buying the FKS 180 binding, but are not sure that you need the burliness of an 18 DIN binding, this would be a great option for you. It does utilize winged construction in the toe, which makes it slightly weaker, but other than that, the bindings are almost identical. Really short mount zone, fits very low on the ski, it has very high elasticity, and a super wide AFD. Nothing compares to the turntable design...NOTHING!

Boom

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love and swear by this binding. Been skiing some form of the FKS pivot binding for 5 years and these are just as solid as they've always been. Great anywhere on the mountain, these are aggressive bindings for rippers.

Since the brakes are removeable can you interchage the XXL brakes with L brakes

Best Answer Responded on

Yes you most certainly can. We don't have any in stock, but if you get your hands on some go right ahead.

Responded on

brakes are not removable. or at least not with just the twist of a screw you actually have to take the binding off and the brakes apart to get them out. not a fun process

Responded on

The brakes are removable, but you gotta have some tools to do it. Check out the video on how to take them apart: http://www.vimeo.com/4218404, a nice 10 minute vid on how to do it right.

I just picked up some ID One mogul skis and need to mount them. I've been recommended to use the FKS or Tyrolia Peak 15. Any thoughts on which binding is better? I leaning toward the FKS. Would there be an mounting issue with the ID One being only 63 mm underfoot?

Posted on

It states they come with interchangeable brakes, I assume it only comes with either L or XXL; not both?

Responded on

Yeah, you get one or the other, not both.

No complaints - great binding

Have around 5 days on these and so far they've been great. I had them put on some new Sir Francis Bacons and they've treated me well in every circumstance. Never a pre-release and they've performed as expected on some really wicked wipe-outs. They're light but feel very sturdy and they look good too (which doesn't really matter to me but it's a small bonus feature).
