Ski and Snowboard Binding Installation

Ski and snowboard bindings keep getting lighter while using better materials and shapes to allow better riding control with less fatigue. High-end bindings like Union’s Ultra FC and Burton’s X-Base are amazing.

Viking Ski Shop’s certified technicians will make sure your ski and snowboard bindings are mounted and adjusted correctly. We have technicians at both of our locations -- 3422 W Fullerton Ave, Chicago, IL 60647, and 131 W Northwest Hwy, Barrington, IL 60010.

Not all bindings are equal and perform the same. Some bindings are designed for freeride and freestyle skiers, some are made for racers, and others are for weekend warriors.

One of the most important things that should be considered with binding installation is the type of skiing you will be doing. All bindings should be professionally installed and adjusted by certified technicians.

Snowboard Binding Installation

Snowboard binding installation is much like installing skis bindings. They are all different. Viking technicians will determine whether you lead with your left foot or right foot, as well as finding a stance width and binding angles that will be comfortable to suit your riding style and ability.

Snowboard bindings tend to have differences and must be mounted securely to the board to ensure your safety.

Boots are Important Too

A customized boot fit is critical and that’s what we do at Viking – we really fit your boots. Ski boots and snowboard boots are continuing to move toward sleeker and lighter designs, which especially help riders with larger feet avoid heel and toe drag. Inner liners and outsoles are more durable and longer-lasting than ever, built to hold their fit and new boot ride for more good days on the snow.
