I'm a pretty new skier, just now getting into the course at 15 off and recently bought my own ski, a 2020 Connelly V. I now need some bindings but have only ever used rubber bindings so was wondering how other types work. So for lace up bindings, do you just keep the top laces pretty loose and then in a crash, the elastic stretches enough to let your foot come out?
I use a rear toe plate so I figure something that releases fairly easy would be good so I don't get into a situation where my back foot releases and my front foot doesn't. I found a good deal on a Radar Profile boot, would something like that be good for a new skier or should I stick with rubber bindings? I would prefer safety over performance.
