Five Stars for a beautifully engineered variation on the typical race binding adjustment plate, with a toe plate that is unique as a nearly universal option for race bindings.
Background on product familiarity: I’ve set up the heel plates for a partner’s Dynafit Speed Superlite, and am currently setting up the toe plates for my own Plum Race.
First, the first impressions out of the box: Dynafit definitely put in some extra effort to minimize both the weight and height, as the undersides of the plates are beautiful just to hold and behold. But the unheralded feature is that although the heel plates work only for the Dynafit Low Tech Race and Speed Superlite “1.0” versions, the toe plates are a unique option for a continuously adjustable nearly universal race binding adjustment plate.
Second impressions, in use, for adapting to other toes: The front of the toe plate has a section that is entirely open. If your race toe has a separate striker plate (i.e., for the toe lever) that requires some support underneath, then the original 30mm adjustment range in front will be reduced to ~17mm in order to avoid this void. Alternatively, if you don’t plan to use ski crampons, or if your binding model’s ski crampon clip doesn’t require support underneath, then you can simply mount the toe plate backwards. (The only asymmetry other than the void is entirely cosmetic, so swapping is possible even after mounting.)
You might also need to grind down the provided T20 screws (i.e., same head style as all current Dynafit bindings), or you can experiment with grinding down any M6 10mm screws from a hardware store (but keep in mind that you’ll probably be limited to a Phillips or socket head, so potentially another driver style to keep in your repair kit).
Third impressions, for long-term durability: As with similar designs for heel plates from other brands, very straightforward once adjusted. But you plan to swap between different boots very often, then better to get a single-screw “worm drive” design.
