Product Info

The most trusted binding in alpine skiing is back. Rossignol FKS 140 Ski Bindings feature bombproof construction and deliver better retention and prevention of pre-release than any binding on the market. FKS bindings feature 7-points of boot contact giving superior control, response and snow feel. Skiers have less concern with pre-release due to the longest elastic travel on the market. The heelpiece rotates with the boot directly under the tibia to give more consistent, reliable and manageable release. The Dual Action toepiece has 180 degree multi-directional release with high vertical and lateral elastic travel to provide shock absorption, further reducing inadvertent release. Using the shortest mounting zone available, the FKS allows deeper, rounder, more consistent ski flexing, turning, floating and smearing. The Rossignol FKS 140 L Ski Bindings are available in multiple brake sizes to fit your needs and provide the most reliable, durable and performance-oriented construction available for aggressive freeskiers.

Comments about Rossignol FKS 140 Ski Bindings 2015:

Had these installed on my line sick day skis and spent 8 weekend trips this season testing them on everything the mountains had to offer. No pre-release and absorbed 10 ft drops with ease. These bindings will be on all my skis in the future.

    Comments about Rossignol FKS 140 Ski Bindings 2015:

    165 pounds, 5'11" tall, 34 yrs old - but I think I am 21...

    I recently bought these bindings because of the release on the heel being both up/down and side/side. Saved me. Plain and simple. They release only when it's time, and on a nasty spill where I should have torn my ACL, they released to the side and allowed my knee to stay in tact. Everyone who saw this thought I was done for... but alas - this binding saved me. I cannot be more happy with this purchase. Thank God I was smart enough to buy these!

    Also, these bindings literally make you feel as if you are RIGHT on top of the ski. It was a new feeling for me, but I love that feeling!

    Great product. Worth the price. God Bless you all.

      Just picked up another pair of FKS 140s. I've run both the 14 and 18 DIN iterations in the past and these 140s are exactly what I'm looking for to mount up some Hojis. Reliable release, enough DIN for what I'm looking to do with these things and significant weight savings over the 18s.

          mounted to Dynastar Legend 85 172cm. These bindings are bright (BRIGHT!) orange, but look great with the color scheme.

          Interface with Atomic Tracker 100.

          Safe bindings, well constructed, great design.

              I had to return these, because they were too heavy, and my DIN setting is around 4.5-5. While my tech said it would probably be fine, he was worried that I would be on it at the lowest end of the DIN range, and the binding performance would suffer. I am only 109lb, and no matter how aggressive I am on skis, I am still too light for FKS. I got Marker Squires instead and love them :)

                Comments about Rossignol FKS 140 Ski Bindings 2015:

                The Rossignol version of the Look binding that has stood the test of time. 50 years of ski racing, young alpha male craziness, and nearly 25 years of ski patrolling and not a single knee or leg injury (knock on wood) despite more than my share of crashes. I don't think I've ever taken a guest who had Look bindings off the mountain in a toboggan for a leg injury, although obviously it must happen at times.

                The great thing about these bindings is the inherent flexibility of the binding before it actually releases. This allows you to set the bindings much lower than your recommended setting and still not end up with unwanted releases even when skiing hard. For me, that's just another measure of safety.

                Comments about Rossignol FKS 140 Ski Bindings 2015:

                Very strong, well built binding. I have previous knee injuries, so I appreciate the reliable release of the rotating heel. These bindings are very easy to click in and out of and provide a very locked-in feeling once you're clipped in. These bindings are less adjustable than some bindings on the market, and will generally only adjust about one boot size, but that just means you have an excuse not to loan your skis out, right? But it is something to consider if you decide to sell your skis with the bindings mounted or maybe get a boot that has some significant difference in boot sole length (I'm not sure what boots would vary that much if the size is the same, but I can't say it's impossible). In conclusion, these bindings are an excellent choice for any type of skier (all-mountain, big mountain, park and pipe). I appreciate the solid metal construction, which is sure to last several seasons at least. The elasticity and trustworthy release are some of the best on the market. To top it all off, the color is pretty cool and helps find your skis when you take those wild tumbles!

                    to me
                    They haven't been mounted yet, but will go on a set of 2014 Liberty Genomes. I can attest to how fast the heel will snap down and the strength of its hold. I was messing around with them and snapped my thumb in between the heel piece and the metal bar on the back. It took two full minutes to get off because I didn't have great leverage sitting on the couch. I thought I was going to lose the tip of my thumb, these things will definitely hold my heel down at 80mph. It has been about 2.5 weeks since they arrived and the feeling is almost all back in my thumb!

                    This binding is awesome. First started using the pivot binding in 2003 and haven't used anything else since. The binding is bomb proof. Steel construction and hard rubber. I ski in bounds, trees, hard back, powder. You name it, this binding does it all.

                    This binding is the only binding I ride for any application. Park, powder, moguls and back country, this binding holds your foot strong but is nice on your knees when you fall. It won't come off all the time when you fall, but it will when you fall the wrong way. This binding will hold up to the worst you can put it through and transfers a great amount of power to your skis. Big skis don't feel big when you have this binding on them.

                        So far the bindings have been awesome. The turntable heal has already saved me once or twice and they certainly release at the proper times. Overall great binding. Only thing I noticed was that one bindings may have backed out slightly and I don't know if that was how the shop mounted them but not a big deal, gave them a turn and havn't had a problem since.

                            Comments about Rossignol FKS 140 Ski Bindings 2015:

                            These bindings give you a great connection to the ski and make them feel like an extension of your boot. Lightweight, reliable release, best binding I have ever used.
