Reflex Bindings are arguably one of the safest systems in the world and are used by many of the sports top athletes and current World Record Holders in both Slalom and Tricks events. They were oneof the first hardshell waterski boot and binding companies to hit the scene back in the 90’s under the name Ski Tecnic and have evolved to be at the forefront of the waterski industry.
Reflex Binding Systems:
The Reflex binding system fits comfortably on your foot and provides increased edge control and power. The system increases comfort for more training time and no foot cramping while increasing lateral control to make your ski react more precisely, and can be controlled by tightening or loosening the buckles depending on individual needs. You can adjust very precisely the release system to your weight for increased safety. Precision is enhanced, thanks to the stiff hardshell which will offer you greater control.
Reflex Slalom skis are designed and built to the highest specification in the composite industry today and are accurately constructed using high strength and high durability materials.
The skis are manufactured using a unique manufacturing process developed by Reflex to link the top and the bottom layers of the ski, with the skin of uni-directional carbon fibre wrapped around the ski. Our exclusive UV process involves a molding process under vacuum , which guarantees an optimized ratio of carbon / epoxy. This process at the forefront of the composite technology makes our skis ultra durable and reliable in spite of being amazingly light.
1Kg-2.2Lbs: Reflex slalom skis are the lightest skis on the market and this is the proof of their very high level of construction.
I just started to ski in the slalom course, is the Reflex binding good for me?
The Reflex system is especially well‐suited for you because when comparing it with rubber bindings it only has advantages, no disadvantages.
- Easy to put on and take off.
- Greater comfort, thus more passes for the skier (less cramp in the foot).
- Security in release from falls.
- Greater control of the ski right from the start.
How much do I have to weigh before I can start using the Reflex hardshell?
A person using the Reflex system should not weigh less than 88 pounds [40 kilos]. This is because even when the release mechanism is set at
the minimum number it still may not release.
What are the advantages versus rubber bindings?
The Reflex system provides many advantages for both slalom and trick skiers.
- More reactive
- Comfort from the adjustable buckles
- No cramps due to the thermo‐formed liners
- Easy to put on and take off
- Security of release in an extreme crash due to the fact that you can precisely set your release mechanism
- Solid and durable
These advantages have convinced many high level skiers around the world to abandon their rubber bindings for the Reflex hardshell.
Is the Reflex binding compatible with all the skis on the market?
There are 2 standard settings used for the inserts of skis on the market today. All our plates are adapted to fit both these insert settings. Also, because of our long slots on our plates it makes it easy to adjust the plate forward or backward on the ski.
How do I set the release mechanism?
The release mechanism operates from a spring. You set the tension of this spring from a screw on the release based on the weight of the skier
and the skier’sability. Thus, a beginner skier will have a lower number on their setting than a seasoned competitor.
More information can be found in the user guide you get with the binding.
How do I maintain my Reflex system?
The release mechanism should be rinsed on a regular basis to remove any debris. You should check to be sure that all screws are tight on the release system before each set. There should be no movement between the release system and the hardshell, nor between the hardshell and the front toe horseshoe. It needs to have a snug fit to be effective. There is possibility that with time the system could loosen so then you may need to move the release forward one hole.
Can I make any modifications?
Reflex is constantly testing and improving our products. We do not recommend that you make any kind of modifications to our system. This could have hazardous results. We especially discourage to use another hardshell with our system, other than the Reflex hardshell. The rigidity of the
Reflex hardshell is critical in the performance and the safety. We have available several kits with several options to upgrade your Reflex hardshell Carbon Upper, carbon bases, and aluminum buckles.
