NNN binding bad for classic even w soft/no bumper?

Post by JeffOYB » Wed Jan 09, 2019 9:02 am

Sorry for starting a new thread, but i wanted a better subjectline. So I picked up a pair of used Rossi classic skis that have racy looking NNN bindings. I skied them once and my toes hurt. The flexor seemed to be doing it. So I removed all the bumpers. That seemed to help a bit on a test outing but the other day I took them out for an hour and darn they still injured my toes!

I always thought that NNN bindings were skate or classic based on their flexor stiffness and that's all. Is there something else going on? I guess I'll just remove these bindings and install some low-budget flimsy looking NNN Tour bindings I have. These seem like they should be awesome bindings. What the heck is happening?

i assume they are skate specific bindings. i'm just going to remove them. their range of motion seems limited even w/o any bumpers and they injure my toes. i'll save them to install on some skate skis someday.
