Product Info

The most trusted binding in alpine skiing is back. The Rossignol FKS 180 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 all-metal reinforced Pivot 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 180 Ski Bindings come in multiple brake sizes to accommodate your needs and provide the most reliable, durable and performance-oriented construction available for aggressive freeskiers.

Comments about Rossignol FKS 180 Ski Bindings 2015:

This year I purchased brand new ski gear, including the Rossignol FKS 180 Bindings. I was pleased with every purchase, including the Armada Al Dente skis. I opened the package with my bindings, and it blew me away. The color was so orange and by first touch I fell in love with these bindings. They're a bit more on the heavy side of things (I think my Full Tilt boots are lighter) but, as an experienced skier, I could feel the power behind these bindings. Amazing technology put into the bindings as well. This is my new favorite ski binding. It met all my park riding expectations, full control with 87 points of contact and safe release with the rotation heel piece. I wouldn't recommend any other binding. Rossignol all the way.

    Comments about Rossignol FKS 180 Ski Bindings 2015:

    Man what an amazing binding! The FKS's are the perfect bindings to mount on a wide powder ski. With 7 points of contact (4 in the toe and 3 in the heel)I have never felt so safe clicked into such an extreme binding.
