There are many factors that go into crafting the perfect ski binding for women. How one should priorities these factors differs between skiers, based on ability, ski size and performance needs. Skiers can factor in release versus retention priorities, available brake widths and DIN settings.
One of the easiest factors to quantify is binding weight. Ski bindings can account for over a third of a mounted skis weight. For many skiers this can have a noticeable effect on their level of fatigue and enjoyment throughout the ski day. While it is not always the deciding factor; binding weight frequently comes up as part of the discussion with clients who are picking a binding to compliment their new skis. outdoor DIVAS has compiled the following information on ski binding weight for models we frequently sell to women.
