I have the Women's Salomon S7s with a 105 waist. Would the Salomon STH 12 with 115mm brakes work for those or should I be looking at a narrower brake?

I'm 160lbs, but expecting to drop some weight. Just an average skier from northeast Ohio. I want something that can take me all-mountain, through park, and fresh pow. Nothing too fancy at this point, so recommend or go another route?

Best Answer Responded on

these are perfect, Salomon STH line is one of the best. used by a lot of top skiers for reliability and performance. the 12 is a good choice for your size and will be still fine if you loose weight, I recommend these binding for sure.

Hi will this binding fit the salomon shogun skis?
Thanks

Best Answer Responded on

The brake width you need to fit the shogun is out of stock in this particular model. These are available:

When you 'select options', just choose the 100mm version. The sth 12 driver is a little more expensive, but it is a better, more durable binding, imo.

DIN settings are determined by height, weight, type 1 2 or 3 skier, boots sole length and age...

There's a metric used by every company to determine your setting, which can be found by searching Salomon release chart (like the one at http://www.dinsetting.com/dinchart.htm).

Step one is to chose which is closer to the top of the chart, your height or weight range. From there you're given a letter (ex. a 5'4" 155 lbs skier would be a 'J'). Next step is to choose skier type: stay put for a type 1 skier, move down one row for type 2, down two rows for type 3. Then find the boot sole length stamped on the side of your boot. Find that corresponding value along the top of the chart, follow it down to your letter row, and there's your recommended release setting. Subtract a row if you're above 50 or under 9 years of age... And always have a certified tech test your release torque each season or after adjustments.

... so for buying purposes, if your recommended release is somewhere within the range provided by this binding you're going to be ok, especially considering room for growth and progression. Not to lie, but a 12 is far more of a torque to release than most riders will EVER need, and pushing your release value above the recommended is asking for knee injuries down the road.

Would these bindings in 115mm fit the Rossignol S7 skis which have a 115mm waist?

Yes, they would fit perfectly.

Posted on

I have a new pair of k2 244 bump skis and am trying to decide between the STH and the Z12. I'm 160 and the ski waist is 65mm. I'm thinking of going with 80mm brakes, but which binding?

Responded on

Hey Jeff,

Both bindings are building on the same chasis and are very similiar. The STH will be a bit more freestyle oriented as it does not have a gliding AFD pad (Z12).

Also, the most glaring difference is that the STH has the micrometric steel heel track as the Z12 has the traditional Ti track, within its plastic housing.

I have enjoyed my STH binding and would choose them again.

Hope this helps,
Nick

Going with the Z12 Ti.......youtube = A long lost art.

Hi, is this binding good for a woman (weighs 107lbs) too? I'm buying Line 2011 women's shadow and wonder if this binding fits it. Thanks a lot!! - HL

Responded on

Hey HL,

It's a great binding, my girlfriend uses it and she weighs 120lbs.

It's a little bit more "progressive" with the graphics for a younger crowd than, a Z12 or Z10 but it has been really popular amongst everyone.

Good choice,
Nick

Never Let Me Down

I'm an aggressive skier weighing in at 125 lbs. I've never had any problems with my Salomon STH12 bindings in the park, pipe, or the steeps. It's even seen me rag doll off of a 40 footer last year during the FWT stop at Snowbird and held up. I think people get too caught up in the beefiness of their bindings, you don't really need that STH 16 to prove yourself to the skiing community unless you really are 200 lbs and skiing hard.

Excellent for lighter weight skiers

At 140lbs , I don't need a 16 DIN. This is a very solid binding, and lighter weight too.

Responded on

at 195, i don't need a 16 DIN. nobody does unless you are jumping/dropping HUGE. 16 DIN means = doesn't come off = dangerous. I'm not picking on you mjp, it's just that i see this all of the time. I am an int/adv all-mountain skier, and my DIN only comes in at 8.5

Just wondering how these bindings hold up in switch landings, i completely trashed my pair of marker 10.0s by landing switch going fast. The brake caught in the snow and ripped half the heel piece off the ski, is this gunna happen with this binding?

Responded on

Write your answer here...yes probably because mine, i landed switch off a regular 180 landing switch at a regular decent speed not even over 15 mph and my brake got caught in the snow and i sprained my ankle and my brake got completely bent. i cant imagine what they will be like at the speed u were going at.

It says that the recommended rider weight is under 92 pounds. It dosn;t make sense. Can you guys tell me why? Thanks

Posted on

Will the Salomon STH 12's with the 100 mm brake actually fit a ski that is 100 mm? I just got some 2010 Line Blends and want be sure they fit.

Responded on

They will *fit*, but not like most bindings. They will rub the sides of the ski, but really, won't cause any problems. Plus a shop can pull them out if it bothers you.

Responded on

It's safe to assume that any brake can be stretched 4-5mm, because you're really only asking for 1-2.5mm from each side.

Responded on

wouldn't it just make sense to get a bigger brake then...like a 115. That way there would be no issue what-so-ever

Responded on

you can stretch the brake yourself, no need to go to a shop. they might fit though, as no two companies measure the same. go to a shop and pysically check to see if they fit. if they rub then just bend them out a little bit. you can go wider, but you are more likely to hit/touch/break them if they are too big. absolute mox = waist width + 20%.
