Thinking about getting a KD CR7 but from Wiley's it comes with these bindings. Never tried them before. Have any of you guys?

Got the KD Vise on my 7000 and really happy whit it.
The CR is a high end ski.Might as well throw a couples of buck more for some good bindings,a bit more "modern" then Wiley's high wraps!
IMO.

That was the ski that I was out to get, but can't find as good of a deal as this one in the length I want. I have a 66' and want to go a little longer.

My buddy got a pair of those wileys on his 71" HO Triumph. I got the ski for his wife's christmas gift to him. He hasnt skied them yet, but he tried them on, and he says they feel very comfortable.

Nothing wrong with a set of Wiley's, actually, they're probably the easiest to get replacement overlays and such.

Only skied them once, Only thing i really don't like is the hole cut outs for getting the binding on, these things tend to rip out the tighter you set your bindings, so i prefer ones that have a sewn on strap.

I was thinking about the 67", I am 6'1" and about 210lbs. The 66" that HO VTR that I have rides a little high in the front. The bindings are forward and all that good stuff, I was just smaller when I bought the ski. May even go to a 68". See what kind of deal I can find.

Have had the 7000 with the Wileys for 2 seasons and no complaints so far. They are not as stiff as some of the others out their.

I love my Wiley's, too. I've got a set on a KD700, and a set on my X5.

Didn't CP set his two world records last year using Wiley high wraps on his Sixam? Good enough for Parrish is good enough for me.

They only have a 67" there, will that be long enough for me? 6'2" and about 210 lbs. All the charts say I should be on about a 68-69. I know my 66" is to short. Thanks for the help guys.

I've never used Wileys Bindings, but if they're good enough for Chris Parrish ....

If they're not stiff enough for you, I've heard of lots of folks using the trick wraps on their skis. They look like the old O'Brien advantage wraps, which I used a lot in the past and loved.

Dude, how do you ski on a 66?

I am about the same size as you and there is no way. You might as well kick it Erkle style and ditch the ski.

I was a lot smaller when I bought the ski. I think I was about 16 or so.

My skis are 66 and 65.5 and i'm 6 160 and that puts me at the high end of all recommendations.

I've been skiing Wiley's bindings for years. I've got them on my 66" KD7000 now.

When KD changed the binding hole locations (2004?) your binding choices were limited since no other bindings would fit (other than KD or Wileys).

Wileys price and quality always wins out.

I had Wileys on my KD 7000 and loved them. My wife has the Wileys on her ski and is happy as well.

I had a pair sent to me but they weren't sturdy enough for the skiing I do so I sent them back and got KD bindings. B

I use them on everything but barefoot skis and I am a firm believer in them. i think they are one of the best things out there. I love Show Skiing!

Parish and it seems half the other pros. At the Malibu open last summer we were noticing that it seemed almost all the pros were using wiley wraps. Must be something to it, since I assume any of them could get just about any type of binding they wanted for free.

I didn't realize they were so popular. I usually ski at around 34MPH, but haven't even looked at a coarse in about 5 or 6 years. I can't make up my mind about the KD7000 or the CR 7. I have skied the 7000 and loved it, and hear that the CR7 is very similar, but better. My wife gave me the OK and now the hard part seems to be which one do I want. Thanks for all the help guys.

wileys has tons of support, particularly in the pro circuit because they make a quality jump, trick, and slalom model. Most binding companies to not produce items like that across the board.

helps that their product is excellent.

Have you thought about the D3 skis?
That's the third ski company started by Dennis Kidder and those skis seems to be as friendly as Kidder and KD skis...

I've had Wiley's highwraps on 3 slalom sticks and a set of their high end wake board bindings...great product, even better people running the place.

I've run the KD bindings, both comp and vise ones, really like the Wiley slalom bindings though, thats what ive got now. Sizing seems to run big, but besides that, they're really comfy.

Their trick wrap and jump wraps are amazing too!
