    Please enter the details needed for binding & DIN setting in the " SPECIAL DELIVERY INSTRUCTIONS" in the review your order, in the check out process, or you may email or phone us your details.  Thank you.

    Information & details required from you for ski set up:

    1. Skier's Age.
    2. Skiers Height.
    3. Skiers Weight. 
    4. Boot brand/make & sole length in millimeters. Usually found embossed on side of heels. eg 315mm
    5. Skier classification: Please pick one. Type -1 Type 1 Type 2 Type 3 Type 3+ 

    Type -1
    Skiers looking for a lower release setting than type 1. Recommended for beginners over 25 years old.

    Type 1
    Ski conservatively. Prefer slower speeds. Ski on easy to moderate slopes. Intermediate level, but not in good physical fitness. Good skiers, but with smooth supple style, but emphasizing safety.
    Favour lower than average release/retention settings – This corresponds to increased risk of inadvertent binding release in order to gain increased release capacity in a fall.

    Type 2
    Intermediate skiers in good physical condition. Prefer a variety of speeds. Ski on varied terrain, including most difficult trails. All skiers who do not meet all the descriptions of the other types.

    Type 3
    Ski aggressively. Normally ski at high speeds. Prefer moderate to steep terrain.
    Favour higher than average release/retention settings. This corresponds to decreased capability to release in a fall in order to decrease the risk of inadvertent binding release. (Type 3 should not be used by skiers of less than 22kg)

    Type 3+
    Very strong skiers, on challenging terrain. Skiers looking for higher release settings than type 3. N.B Skier type does not have the same meaning as skier ability. I.E, an advanced skier who skis all-terrain but is not particularly aggressive may be able to use type 2 settings.

    Using the boot sole length you give, we set the binding to that length, but the final adjustments and checks can only be made with the actual boot. Heel and toe units on ALL boots have to conform to a certain size and shape. However, sometimes boots especially older models or well-worn ones, may vary in length compared to another stating the same measurements hence it is important that you do have them professionally double checked. We recommend that you have your skis double checked by your local or resort ski shop with your actual boot.

    SKIS WITH DRILL ON BINDINGS, ONCE DRILLED ARE CLASSED AS USED AND ARE NOT RETURNABLE / REFUNDABLE UNLESS FAULTY.

    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
