Rossignol Axium bindings have many features, including four points of contact for power transmission and a wide mounting area that accommodates skis with wide waists. When you're installing your bindings, it's best to bring them to a certified technician for professional fitting. However, you can learn to install the bindings on your own if you have the proper tools and skills to make adjustment settings.
Things You'll Need
- #3 Phillips screwdriver
- Flat-bladed screwdriver
- Ski boots
Use the #3 Phillips screwdriver to remove the four screws holding the binding toe pieces and the four screws holding the heel pieces on the risers.
Determine the length of your boot sole in millimeters and use this length to determine the correct mounting positions for your Rossignol Axium bindings. For boot sizes with a range of 331 to 350, the toe piece of the binding should be placed in the front mounting hole and the heel piece should be placed in the rear mounting hole. For boot sizes with a range of 324 to 330, the toe piece of the binding should be placed in the front mounting hole and the heel piece should be placed in the middle mounting hole.
Mount the bindings on the risers using the screwdriver. Attach the toe and heel pieces using the same screws that came with the bindings.
Fit your ski boots into the binding. The heel piece should snap down when you insert the toe of the boot into the toe piece and push the boot heel downward.
Set the forward pressure setting of your bindings by snapping the ski boot in. Watch the position of the indicator groove in the forward pressure indicator window, which is located on the side of the heel piece. The groove should be in the center or slightly forward of the center. The binding is too loose if the indicator groove is at the rear of the window. If this is the case, move the heel piece forward in its track. The binding is too tight if the indicator groove is at the forward end of the window. If this is the case, move the heel piece one position at a time to the rear.
Tighten the screws once you've made all the proper adjustments.
Tips & Warnings
- Adjust your ski bindings to the correct DIN settings. The DIN setting is the standard alpine ski binding settings issued by Deutsches Institut für Normung based on the skier's weight, height, ski boot sole length, age and skiing style.
