Skier's Choice Draft Picks
Round 6 – Binding Selection, Pick 1“Where it’s at…. I got a turntable heel on my FKS.” OK, maybe Beck had two turntables and a microphone in his hit single, but the Rossi FKS 140 is back with its classic and proven turntable heel binding design. With 25mm of elastic travel, this binding is less likely to pre-release when taking a rougher landing. The bright orange remains one of the most reliable products on the market, and the only binding I trust on my skis. I chose the 140 over the 180 because unlike the Poacher’s landings, mine are silky smooth.

Round 6 – Binding SelectionThe best alpine binding ever invented. You will never get more control and feel out of a binding than the FKS. It's easy to get into to, once you have it adjusted right, and the classic turntable heel just flat-out rules. I feel it’s the best high performance binding on the market that keeps you on your skis the longest until it’s just that moment when you must release.
|Description||The most trusted binding in alpine skiing, the Rossignol FKS, is back. Seven-points of contact and the longest elastic travel on the market offer the best prevention of pre-release and greatest control. The legendary “turntable” heelpiece rotates directly under the heel to accurately control retention and release. With bombproof construction and the shortest mounting zone available, FKS bindings allow more natural ski flex, greater snow feel and the most reliable release available. Price changes with increase in DIN: $475 (18 DIN), $375 (14 DIN).|
