The 2015 Rossignol Axial 2 180 Maxflex ski binding is for demanding ski racers who need a high DIN setting and a solid ride. Compatible with 2015 and older Rossignol race plates, the Maxflex plate allows for flexibility underfoot, but does not compromise stability. Whether you’re at the top of the start gate of a FIS race or blowing up your local beer league race, you’ll be at a huge advantage with your boots clicked into the 2015 Rossignol Axial 2 180. If your skis are the car, then the bindings are the steering wheel-taking every input from your boot and transmitting them to your ski. Bindings should not be a meaningless afterthought-they are the connective tissue holding all of your energy input together. Rossignol’s Axial technology is long tested and high performing. This binding includes 45mm of toe elasticity and 25mm of heel travel; reducing pre-release and increasing safety. These Axials have a DIN range of 10-18, so if you do not chart out to at least a 10 DIN, you should consider a different binding with a lower DIN threshold. While complex in nature, it’s actually a simple design-the tried and true toe piece hasn’t changed in years, while the Axial heel continues to improve and get safer over time. All serious racers should consider the 2015 Rossignol Axial 2 180 Maxflex ski binding for their next race.
