    Hi all, I just got a pair of Volkl Kendo 184cm skis and need bindings for them. I'm an advanced/expert skier, 6'0", 175lbs and I need to get a set of bindings. I've been looking at Marker Griffon 13 ID's, though I'm curious to see what others have to say. Also, since these skis are 90mm at the waist, would a 90mm brake width fit around them?

    Thanks.

    90mm Griffon will work perfectly.

    I say don’t get the Marker. I find Markers hardest to get into in soft snow of contemporary Marker, Salomon or Tyrolia bindings.

    If it was me I’d get one of the Salomon Sth 13, Salomon Warden 13, or Tyrolia Attack 13. The Tyrolia is likely to be notably cheaper than the Salomons or Markers.

    This is good advice. Griffons are the hardest to click into by far. Any of the three bindings mentioned above (STH2, Warden or Attack) would work nicely. Find the best deal between those three. I have skis with all three and am happy with all of them. I sold my Griffons and bought the STHs in their place.

    In terms of brake widths a 90mm brake up to a 100mm brake would work fine. Brakes advertised at 88mm (for the Attack) would usually fit a 90mm ski also.
