safety bindings & upgraded fin

SkiparksKurtSkiparksKurt Posts: 5 New Baller
Many years ago I consulted the Fischer slalom ski development (see: ).
Also had some concepts for a #02 ski prepared, but Fischer ended their waterski activities.
Just wondered if someone has ideas how to get these developments realized.
E.g. a safety binding (see: )
or a flex-neutral fin mount /see: ).
There might be better solutions available after such a long time, if so please advise.
Thanks and kind regards

    Kurt, like the ideas, from what I briefly seen... using this fin without a fin box, you relay on the ski to hold the pressure on the fin. You would probably need reinforced slot walls.
    Binding system looks similar to MOB, or most nowadays mechanically released systems, but there is a lot of room for design improvements and your system looks good!

    Alex, thank you for the comment. The idea was to have the fin not touching the ski at all. It is fixed in the bearing box only. Eventually the fin would have to be made of harder stainless steel or carbon.
    Binding design was based on existing alpine systems with real safety. Only new thing would be the moving middle part. Importend will be to avoid a long plate effcting the flex.
    kind regards

    I like the ability for both boots to release.

    Both look like well thought out designs. I really like the boot setup

    does the rear release have forward pressure adjustment and DIN adjustment?
