Determining your skier type is your responsibility!
Your skier type, height, weight, age and ski boot sole length are used by the ski technician to determine the visual indicator settings of your ski bindings, referred to as your DIN setting. Be sure to provide accurate information, as any error may increase your risk of injury.
cautious skiing at lighter release/retention settings
moderate skiing at average release/retention settings
aggressive skiing at higher release/retention settings
Consult the following descriptions to select your classification:
Type 1: “Cautious skiing at LOWER visual indicator settings”
Type 2: “Moderate skiing at AVERAGE visual indicator settings”
Type 3: “Aggressive skiing at HIGHER visual indicator settings”
If from experience, you have been dissatisfied with visual indicator settings resulting from your selected skier type classification, you may wish to consider: (a) changing your skier type classification; (b) selecting different skier type classifications for toe and heel components; (c) selecting Type 3+ (“for skiers who desire visual indicator settings higher than settings for a Type 3 skier”)
