Atomic Bindings

Poster: A snowHead
Have invested in Atomic SX9 - fantastic!! But....when I'm carrying them around the ski brakes don't lock together and they constantly slip apart - a real pain! Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just a quirk of Atomic skis that I've got to get used to?

No, it's normal. I've a few pairs of Atomics and they all do it to various degrees, some are worse than others. It doesn't bother me too much but Mrs Ise uses a ski tie/strap, it annoys her as her Dynastars don't do it.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Cheers, I hoped it was just that there's some sort of special technique! I've got a sling & velcro tie, it's just that they're too fiddly when you're only going a short distance. Never mind - I'll just have to get used to it.

Hmm...the sling is just for when we end up in a cheap hotel which is a seven mile walk uphill to the lifts! It spends most of the time tucked in my suitcase gathering dust - does that get me out of being a punter? Confused

Possibly but it does drag you down to the level of cheapskate, Seven mile walk to the lifts .... may also be in need of psychiatric care Exclamation

Well yes....I was exagerating slightly in my haste to get out of the punter category! But I could count as a cheapskate as it's the only way I can feed my addiction for skiing as often as I do! Which possibly mean I need the psychiatrist anyway to help break free of my obsessions with skiing and Snowheads!

ssh, It doesn't matter which way up they are or how tightly I've jammed them together they slide apart and fall off my shoulder - or try to cut a hole in my neck! But the skis are just great so I'll learn to live with it....

Yes, skis are carried in three ways for non-punter status :

1. Over your shoulder.
2. racked onto a rucksack for a walk/abseil in.
3. on the rack on the roof of the car.

Ah yes, fair enough for the casual placement into the passing gondala etc. No good over, say 20m unless it's a line for gondola etc Very Happy
