A piecewise, linear, two degree of freedom, ski release binding dynamic system model is presented for an elementary analysis of binding performance. Dynamic performance criteria and techniques for quantitative evaluation of ski release binding properties are discussed. Desirable binding properties along the loading path, where the ski and boot are separating, and desirable binding properties along the return path where the boot is returning to the ski centerline are discussed separately. General characteristics of the loading and return paths have practical application for binding function.
