Topic - Calculating your own DIN setting

Denni on 11 Jan 2013
Evening all,
does anyone know of some sort of accurate industry standard type chart that I could use to calculate my DIN settings?

I went to Snow and Rock today and they calculated that my DIN was about 4.75 which doesn't sound right at all from the last couple of times I've had it done. (a while back now)

They used the following:

Type of skier, 1-3. I went for 2, average skier, average release
Height/weight, 183, 105kg
Age and type of skier, 44 and skier 2 as above, this gave me a code
Sole length, 322 (Scarpa Spirit, mondo 28.5) gave me another code

Then they had a table which you cross referenced all the above and it gave me the DIN of 4.75. They checked it all again and again 4.75. I think it should be about 7 but they seemed adamant.

Anyone any pointers as to why they think it is that and why I think it Isn't?

Thanks in advance, Den
