** Howell SkiBindings company is against (a) ski waist widths greater than 100mm AND (b) all 'pin-binding's' (except Trab TR2) — due to their association with a new type of skiing-injury: severe, high-energy tibia-plateau and tibial-tuberosity fractures. Both new types of skiing injuries are the fastest-growing categories of injuries in skiing — matching the growth of fat-skis and pin-bindings. The high-energy nature of the new types of skiing fractures involve multiple-fragments, difficult surgical reconstruction, and 10 to 15-months of aggressive rehabilitation. Fat skis on firm snow are a serious problem for the sustainability of our beautiful sport. References: (1) Dominik Heim, MD; SITEMSH-Japan, 2016.
