When you go to a ski hire shop, you will hear the following questions no matter where you go.
How old are you?
How much do you weigh?
Have you ever skied before?
Do you have your own ski boots?
The answers to these five questions are necessary to set the ski bindings according to ISO 11088 and ISO 8061 standard. The purpose of the ISO 11088 standard is to ensure that the binding is released in the event of a fall and that no injuries to the knee occur as a result of incorrect adjustment of the binding.
So far, so good. But who guarantees that the release value set on the binding corresponds to the actual release value of the binding? In other words, if, for example, I set “5”, does this also correspond to the trigger value of 5? We guarantee this – according to ISO 8061. With the help of a special machine, this can be measured exactly. We offer this service not only to our service guests, but also for every single pair of skis of our equipment for hire, and of course for all children's skis.
You're not sure your bindings do what they’re supposed to do? Then come by. We're happy to help take care of it.
