Binding with low DIN settings2022-01-03T12:53:54+01:00

I need low DIN settings. Which is the right binding for me?

Fritschi bindings have a very reliable release, even with settings in the lower range. For DIN settings below 4 we recommend the Scout 11.

What DIN settings do my bindings require?

The DIN settings define the force at which the binding is supposed to release. It is determined according to DIN ISO shown in this table and based on the skier’s weight, height, the length of the boot’s sole and the type of skier you are. We recommend having the settings adjusted and checked by a trained professional.

No release2022-01-03T11:25:44+01:00

What do I do if the binding does not release when it should?

The binding releases only under the effect of the selected force. If you repeatedly feel that the binding should have released, it is necessary to check whether the DIN settings have been correctly determined. We recommend that you gradually reduce the settings after having them checked by a professional. The setting with +/- a DIN value is within the tolerance range according to DIN/ISO. Settings beyond that or for values above 10 are in the respnsibility of the user.

Lifespan2022-01-03T11:56:24+01:00

How long can I use my bindings?

The lifespan depends on the intensity and frequency of use. This is why we recommend to have the equipment checked by a specialized dealer every year before the winter season begins, regardless of how old the equipment is. Because of the general wear and tear and for safety reasons, the bindings should not be used for more than 10 years.

Storage2022-01-03T12:33:22+01:00

How should my bindings be stored during the summer?

To relieve the spring, close the automatic heel unit. The moving parts and sliding surfaces can be greased with a commercially available lubricant.
To ensure optimal function and safety, Fritschi recommends to have the bindings checked and adjusted, if necessary, by a specialized dealer every year before the winter season begins.
