Description

The baddest binding in its class.

The new Salomon STH 2 WTR 16 Ski Binding combines the legendary Driver toe piece and the Guardian heel piece for maximum power transmission and performance and Walk-to-Ride sole compatibility. Gone are the days of compromise and sacrifice when it comes to bombing-downhill capability and comfortable convenience. This beastly binding features a wide platform, a low-profile chassis, Progressive Transfer pads, and heel flex interface for the ultimate in terrain sensitivity, power transfer, and shock absorption for a smooth ride when motoring fast. The XL wings with Micro Simultaneous adjustment and Driver toe with manual height adjustment ensure a secure hold on that gnarly terrain you adore. The fat Freeski brakes self-retract so they don't become a drag when riding switch. This is Salomon's top Freeski binding and goes up to a DIN of 16; it's not for the timid.
  • 3D Driver toe with manual height adjustment
  • XL wing with elastic travel
  • Micro Simultaneous wing adjustment
  • Low-profile chassis

  • Oversized steel platform
  • Fixed wide stomp pedal

Here's what others have to say...

Will these bindings work on the K2 Pettitor...

Will these bindings work on the K2 Pettitor 120s? Size 115mm?

Responded on

Yes. 5mm of wiggle room is ok, it's when you start approaching 8-10mm that brakes get pretty tight. If you want more piece of mind just call the shop that will mount them to see what they say.

I had a Marker Griffon 90 mounted on a Line Sick Day 95 and it worked fine but if it would have been a few mm's wider I maybe would have had to tweak the brake a bit. I've only used one of the new WTR once on someone else's ski but it seemed like the Salomon brake flared out a little more than my Markers do.

Again always call the shop that's going to do the work unless you are mounting them yourself. Some shops won't tweak the brake no matter what, they leave that up to the owner.

I want to mount these on a pair of Atomic Alibis with a waist width of 98 mm. Will the 115 mm work? I can't find a narrower brake...

Responded on

It would be nice if they made a 110 but they don't so to be safe the 115mm is the way to go. You maybe could go with the 90mm but it may require a significant tweak to the brake compromising the integrity. The only issues with a wider brake on narrower ski is high angulation carving on groomers.

Don't forget if mounting on an Alibi that Atomic makes bindings too. They have an orange and black, and also a grey and white. Backcountry has them online to look at.

If wanting a tighter brake fit you can jump to another brand but not really necessary.

100mm breaks will be ideal for a 98mm waist ski. You don't need 115mm. If you don't need a high DIN binding get the 13 version with 100mm it will fit much better! I use 100mm on my 98 waist line prophet and 115mm on my 113 waist rocker2 ski.

Responded on

Thank you Marcel! You are correct. I was positive I searched Salomon for that in between brake size but missed it. He can maybe switch it out locally or from where he ordered it if it bothers him. Unless he really did want the higher DIN.

Thanks again.

HUCK AWAY!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I went with these bindings for my new Bent Chetler skis. Since they were my first fat skis I wanted a sturdy binding that would keep up with me. I don't crank the DIN all the way to 16 but even at a modest 8 I am pleased with how much I can rely on these to keep me locked in unless I desperately need them to release. These are some bindings I hope to drop many cliffs in.

I'm a DIN 8 and would like to get the additional steel associated with the STH2 16 in lieu of the STH2 13. Should I be concerned about being at the lower limit of the DIN range for this binding?

Responded on

Any specific reasoning you want to go to a higher DIN and heavier overall binding? Park, pipe, big mountain? The WTR 13 is a great binding. I just don't see the need otherwise but that's just my personal opinion. Old rule of thumb is to try and position yourself in the middle of the DIN binding range but I'm sure you will be just fine.

Salomon STH 16 Binding

Salomon STH 16 Binding

Got my new Salomon STH 16s from backcountry.com and got them mounted this past week. Haven't been on them yet, but really looking forward to trying them out. Gorgeous bindings.

5 5

After much research, STH 16 is my winner

Just bought these on BC (and, as an aside, kudos to BC for literally shipping them the same day - hello customer service!). I have a pair of Black Diamond Zealots (110 underfoot) that have been sitting in the garage binding-less for 6 months. I wanted to throw something on them this year and get them out on the slopes. I picked the 115mm STH 16 over a Marker Jester. Went back and forth over this, but I think the Salomon is going to drive these skis better in big mountain terrain. Like the Jester, Salomon expanded the width of the base plate this year. I like how you can use AT or Alpine boots. I also think the STH 16 has more metal in it than the Jester, which is something I want to drive skis like these. I'll let you know what they are like once I have them mounted and moving.

derekhood,
Yes, the 2010 Dalbello Voodoo should work just fine with the Salomon STH 2 WTR 16 Ski Binding.

My ski width is 108mm. What size would I need?

Responded on

Hello,
I would go with the 115mm! You'll only be left with about 3.5mm of brake on either side of the ski, which is perfect.

the metal binding benchmark

These things are bombproof. After breaking a couple of pairs of Markers, these are my new benchmark. They have never failed me.

Power and Precision For Days

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This concept is quite the sleeping giant as far as binding innovations go: since skis are getting wider, why shouldn't the base plates of the bindings? It only makes sense, a wider base will need less ankle flexion to get a response from the wider to widest of skis and the Salomon STH2 WTR 16 adds a bit more precision with their tried and true XL wing/3D Driver toe piece.

The binding is whole lotta metal so it will be heavier, but if you have the power to push it they will deliver in spades. The power transmission is pretty amazing and I always love how Salomon bindings give that satisfying noise whenever I click my heel down.

The 16 DIN maximum is great as I know they won't come off when I'm charging, but it certainly isn't for everyone as the safest binding is where your personal DIN setting (use http://www.dinsetting.com/ for an estimate) is in the middle of the binding's DIN range. My personal DIN is a 12 and the range is from 7 to 16 so it works pretty well for anyone in the 10-14 DIN area.

Once more, it is a bit on the heavy side even though the profile is low so if you're doing spins or getting inverted, be sure to air it out enough. A pretty strong entry into a binding category that I'm sure will grow over time.

Is this boot compatible with Tecnica Cochise...

Posted on

Is this boot compatible with Tecnica Cochise boots with tech soles (not DIN soles). I know you can change out the soles, but I don't want to do that everytime I switch between touring and resort. I want to keep my tech soles in (which I use for dynafit bindings), and use the same boot setup with alpine bindings for resort days.

Responded on

Yes, this binding is compatible with standard alpine boots.

Best Answer Responded on

Like Carver said you can use alpine boots or any AT binding that meets the ISO 9523 certification. Some soles from Technica, Scarpa, BD, Atomic, Salomon meet those standards but check and be sure the ones you need are certified. http://www.backcountry.com/tecnica-interchangeable-alpine-touring-boot-footprint?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6dGVjaG5pY2Egc29sZToxOjE6dGVjaG5pY2Egc29sZQ Those are the soles that are available for your Cochise (both would work).

Responded on

Still confused. What I'm wondering is if I can use Tecnica Cochise boots with the tech soles (not DIN soles) in this binding?

Thanks.

Responded on

The answer is yes. You can find/confirm this information on TGR forums or on Blister Gear Review. You're going to have to raise the toe to its maximum height tho.

Improved version of a classic

I love what salomon did with this binding. It has all the same qualities of the previous driver bindings, plus improvements. They now have a wider platform, better brakes, and toe wings with improved AFD.

WTR indicates it is compatible with Salomon WTR Soles. Is it still compatible with non WTR boots (lange, tecnica, dalbello, etc)?

Hi Travis, yes they are compatible with all standard alpine boots.

Does this binding have the same hole pattern as the previous STH 16 model?

E Lovely, They now have a different hole pattern than the STH16.

Same toe pattern, different heel pattern
