Rossignol Axium 120 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The Rossignol Axium 120 is a good light-weight binding for less aggressive or lighter skiers. The Rossignol Axium 120 is a lower end Rossignol binding, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t perform well. The Dual action toe piece allows for 180 degrees of release and offers solid hold when you need it to. It has 45mm of elastic travel in the toe, allowing for pretty decent shock absorption, and ensuring that the boot doesn’t pre-release. The Rossignol Axium 120 has a AXITEC2 anti-friction device that allows for release even when you have ice, dirt, or snow on your boot. It does have a relatively wide mounting platform helping to give you more power and better control over wider skis. The heel piece has 12mm of travel and a decent amount of shock absorption, although it’s not nearly as good as the Axial3 it has plenty of travel and shock absorption for less aggressive skier, or those who don’t spend a lot of time on jumps. A large lever allows for easier exit at the end of the day. The Rossignol Axium 120 has a solid construction, but it’s not the burliest of bindings. It feels solid, but it doesn’t have the same feel as something like the Jester, or again the Axial3. This is a solid binding for intermediate level riders who are a bit lighter. I have had no issues with hold, but I at 150 lbs this binding is a bit more suited to me than someone who might weigh in at 200 lbs. The DIN range is 3.5-12, and the binding does come in a 90mm, 100mm, and 120mm brake. I was able to pick this up for dirt cheap a few seasons ago, and I used it as a freestyle binding for several seasons. I never noticed any issues with it. Sure it’s not top of the line, but it works pretty well for every day all-mountain type skiing.
