Which alpine binding for your skis? The alpine binding is too often forgotten and yet it is super important. It is the binding that transfers the energy from you to the ski and more importantly it is the binding that ensures your safety in case of a fall. It is supposed to release your boot when the stress gets too important, which helps avoiding knee injuries. Hence, riding with a binding that is adapted to your needs is very important. The main thing you need to know is your required DIN value (a.k.a release value). With this value in mind, you can choose a binding offering a range of values incorporating yours.
