Введение

Use this guide to adjust ski bindings to fit a new skier. It applies to alpine ski only, not to cross-country ski.

The ski binding is the device that connects your ski boot to the ski. When a skier gets a new pair of ski boots or buys the sky of someone else, it’s unnecessary to purchase a new pair of skis or pay someone to adjust the bindings. Instead, you can use this guide to learn how to adjust the bindings yourself.

This guide shows you how to adjust the location of the bindings as well as the DIN setting. Your DIN setting is a function of your height, weight, and a few other personalized parameters. It’s crucial to adjust it for your security and ease.

Before using this guide, calculate your DIN setting here.

    • Insert a piece of paper between the bottom of the boot and the toe bar.

    • Tighten the screw at the front of the toe piece until there is resistance when pulling the paper out.

    • You should be able to pull the paper out without it ripping but not push it back in.

    • Over-tightening of the toe bar can be dangerous. Practice caution and take your time.

    • Adjust the DIN setting on the toe piece to your personalized setting by tightening or loosening the screw on the side of the bindings.

    • Look at the window on the top of the toe piece to see the current DIN setting.

    • Skiing with a DIN setting that is too high can be dangerous, because the bidding won't be activated if the ski is subject to high strains. Use caution to not over-tighten the screw. On the contrary, a low value will cause undesired activations of the binding, which can be dangerous, too.
