How do you best transport touring skis and touring bindings?
Greta: When your skis are transported inside your car, there is nothing special or different to do, just be careful not to scratch anything. If you carry your skis on the roof of your vehicle, you have to be careful. When your bindings are on the top of your car, they can be exposed to the elements such as salt and dirt, which can compromise performance. If possible, we recommend transporting your gear in a roof box, rather than on an exposed rack.
How do I best store my Pin Bindings?
Greta: Touring skis and bindings are best stored in a dry, frost-free area. It is best to avoid any possible encounters with heat, such as when stored in an attic or a loft inside the roof. Ski touring bindings should not be stored near corrosive items such as fireplace chimneys or automobile batteries that release acids. Finally, we recommend that no ski touring equipment be stored in a garage due to acidic exhaust fumes.
Should bindings be stored during their summer hibernation in climbing or downhill mode?
Greta: Pin Bindings should be stored with the least tension possible. This means that that toe pieces should be closed, (but not locked) because that releases tension in the springs. Heel units should be placed in ski mode so that the springs and the brakes are not under tension. This will also allow the skis to be stored nested together.
