    Abstract

    This specification covers dimensions for binding mounting areas to be used in alpine skis and mounting-related dimensions on alpine ski bindings, in order to optimize the compatibility of the functional unit" ski-binding-retention device- boot." The area wherein parts of the binding may be mounted is defined. Standard dimensions and location for a binding mounting area enable a ski designer to locate reinforcing elements within this area. Standard dimensions also enable the binding designer to determine all interface dimensions for binding unit size, screw locations, etc.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    Significance and Use

    This specification defines the area wherein parts of the binding may be mounted. Standard dimensions and location for a binding mounting area enable a ski designer to locate reinforcing elements within this area. Standard dimensions also enable the binding designer to determine all interface dimensions for binding unit size, screw locations, etc. Bindings and skis built in compliance with this specification are compatible. This specification does not apply to any bindings or skis manufactured prior to Jan. 1, 1979.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers dimensions for binding mounting areas for alpine skis and mounting-related dimensions on alpine ski bindings as part of an interface (ski-binding-boot) system, in order to optimize the compatibility of the functional elements of the system. It contains data needed for the manufacture of alpine skis, and for manufacturers of alpine ski bindings, specifically with respect to the binding mounting area. This specification is applicable to alpine skis of the following chord lengths (see Terminology F 472 for the definition of chord length, LN):

    Group 1: LN 1700 mm
    Group 2: 1400 mm LN < 1700 mm
    Group 3: 1000 mm LN < 1400 mm
    Group 4: 750 mm LN < 1000 mm

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
