      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Question on ski bindings

Recommended Posts

Dustin_B said:

Also, the Black Diamond catalog says of the fritschi bindings: "can accommodate any AT or alpine boot meeting ISO Standards 9523 or 5355". What does that mean? I tried searching these standards on the ISO website and other places but can't find squat. Does this just mean any mountain boot with toe and heel welts?

 

Dustin:

 

That is what I adressed above:

 

The Diamar's used to say that they did not recommend using mountaineering boots with them. However, the most recent BD catalogue says that you can now use mountaineering boots with them.

 

It would appear that they have redesigned/tweaked the newer models to accept mountaineering boots. thumbs_up.gif

 

At least that is the way I read it...... wave.gif

I read it differently. I believe that the "alpine" refers to alpine ski boots that conform to the quoted DIN standards. It is a little ambiguous, I'll admit.

9523 - Touring Ski Boot Standard,

5355 - Alpine Ski Boot Standard

I'd say neither includes Mountain Climbing Boots.
