Hagan Z02 Junior Binding

Model: Z02 Junior

What good is a junior ski without a junior binding? The Z02 Junior from Hagan has a DIN settings that range from 2 to 7, perfect for those budding backcountry skiers and future skimo racers. Don’t make your kids suffer with heavier bindings while you waltz uphill on lighter kit. Thank you Hagan for freeing our kids from the resort boundaries. Now we just need avalanche awareness taught in elementary schools.

These bindings are ok, but be aware that in slush/spring snow/sierra cement, they ice up something wonderful. The way the front of the binding pivots, it tends to compress snow under the binding, making things worse. The old Silvertta Pure Kidz binding was far better -- cleared the snow out beautifully.

Still, our kids got a few good years out of them, using downhill boots, before they grew into modern bindings (i.e. Dynafit tech-type). So overall, worth it.

Question from Karen M. Quigley
What size do I purchase. My daughter is nearly 9 years old she is 90 pounds and 4'5" tall. She's an excellent down hill skier, started racing a little last season and wants to tour with us. We tend to do in resort uphill touring or minimally back country as we have other children at the ski resort and do not want to go too far away--ie: not snow camping and back country climbing (maybe when they all grow up and move out :-)

Answer from jbo
Hi Karen, the will work great for her then. The sizing is based off her boot size. If her current boots are at least 255mm long, she can go with the Small to give her more room for foot growth (vs the X-Small).
