Comments about Salomon Guardian 13 Small Ski Bindings 2017:
The only complaint I had about these is I initially had some premature lateral releases on steep bumps when I took them to the resort b/c I was all fired up to check them out. This is compared to my FKS's but that was to be expected I suppose. I am only 165 lbs so I normally ski only a 9.5 DIN. I upped the DIN a bit and it has helped but since these are on my pow day skis anyway it's not really an issue of concern as I should be skiing my other skis/bindings on steep bumped terrain. Have never had a release in powder conditions. If you really ski hard and are used to Pivots/FKS's and want a good double duty binding I am not sure these are for you. But I have them on my east coast "epic day" skis that are also my touring skis which I don't do a ton of but do skin uphill at the mountain and do some light backcountry on skin tracks. My setup is heavy to be blazing trails. If that sounds like you then go for it. I used to have Barons and these are better IMO.
