Buying the proper ski gear can be challenging to figure out. This is especially true with bindings, which is something that skiers don’t put a lot of thought into. Luckily, the folks over at The Ski Monster just posted an informative video that describes the contrasts between the five major pairs of bindings.
In the video below, George Michaelsen, who is the Co-Founder of the ski shop and online retailer, breaks down the differences between the five main bindings: Tyrolia Attack, Salomon/Atomic/Armada Strive, Marker Griffon, Marker Squire, and the Look Pivot.
In short, you should target the Attack and Strive if you won’t have bindings that will be easy to lock into if you’re in powdery conditions. The Marker bindings are best for those who perform in firmer conditions but are a little more challenging to clip into compared to the Attack or Strive. Lastly, the Pivot is best for freestyle skiers who are skiing moguls, doing jumps, and pulling off tricks.
