Thanks for your inquiry-
All bindings are not solely based on weight for range. They are based on boot sole length and ability as well. With a DIN setting up 12 on this binding and even if you are at a level 3 skier type and weigh over 250 pounds, more than enough binding. No question.
Hope this helps and think snow!
I just purchased a pair of flat Kastle DX 85s. Should I step it up to a jester or a pivot 14?
I'm skiing more aggressively As I get better. At my most aggressive I'll ; ski 50mph plus when conditions allow, I'll drop rocks/cliffs up to 6' or so, small to medium features at the park with the kids sometimes. (all resort, but look for challenging terrain)

The ski shop always sets my binding din to about 8. I've really never had an incident where I've experienced an Untimely release. I also don't want to experience an untimely release/failure. should I step it up? Or save the money and weight and stick with an attack 13 or Griffon.
I've always received great advice on skis from ski essential's staff... why not ask them about bindings?
Just looking at DIN you would be fine with a 13 DIN binding but there are other reasons to move up to a 14. Generally 14 DIN bindings are built a little tougher and use more durable materials. So if you see yourself skiing more aggressively in the future moving up to a 14 DIN is a great way to up the durability of your setup so you don't break the binding skiing more exposed terrain. Hope this answers your question!
