Kreuzspitze has come to the rescue for skiers who find they have too much ramp angle in touring bindings. The 14 millimeter adjustment plates are screw-hole compatible with Dynafit TLT Vertical / Radical / Comfort / Speed heel units. That means you can replace a touring heel with a race heel without redrilling. Also available are 18mm and 40mm heel plates, a fast rental-style 40mm adjustment system, and a 3 position toe shift plate that works with any Dynafit Classic toe pattern. Priced and sold in pairs and shipped with the adjustment nuts & bolts.
Heel adjustments offer 14mm, 18mm, and 40mm of adjustment range.
Adjustment slots are compatible with Kreuzspitze or Plum 135/145* heel pieces.
New adjustment bolts have stronger Torx heads for reduced chance of stripping.
Demo adjustment plate can quickly move the heel piece with a flathead screwdriver.
KR Hole Adjuster effectively moves existing drill holes for SCTT and GT bindings, allowing +/- 10mm.
Universal plate works with Trab, ATK, Montura heels. Plus the SCTT mounted sideways.
Toe shift plate has 3 slots spaced 13.5mm apart to help center boots on the ski.
TLT Heel Shifter lets you move Classic Dynafit heels in 6mm increments.
LTR Heel Shifter fits the old 4-hole Low Tech Race bindings from Dynafit.
*Note you need Kreuzspitze screws to mount the plates as the Plum screws won't fit in the recessed holes.
if I have quiver killer installed on my ski, what kind of scrws (to mount the plate to the ski) should I order for 14 Kreuzspitze Adjustment Plates? I think by default the screws come along with will be the one derictly mount on ski on wood basis, not the the one for quiver killer
Got a pair of KREUZSPITZE bindings but my new boots a tad too long. I'm using the K18 heel plate. Would you recommend I swap out to a 25mm plate or the 40mm plate? (And then redrill the two rear holes.) Weight difference is a not an issue for me.
The Universal fits La Sportiva RSR heel binders perfectly, mounted with Quiver Killers and Vibra-tite using 5mm x 0.8mm x 10mm flat head Phillips machine screws. Use a T20 Torx instead of a Phillips and all your hardware will take the same driver.
We live in a special time for ski touring. When before could you combine Dynafit toe, a Plum Race 145 heel, and a 14mm Kreuzpitze plate to create a lightweight setup without having to redrill already-mounted-for-dynafit skis? That setup costs less than $200 and shaves over half a pound off your binding setup (per pair, assuming you already have speed radicals) . So, suffice it to say, these plates are pretty rad.
The Toe Shift plates are a great addition to Speed Rad/Turn bindings to reduce ramp angle and add a few more boot sizes to the options these bindings heel adjustments allow for. It would be overkill for most non rental situations for a single user. However, I got these for some skis that my kids will use and as they grow the bindings can now grow with them! They would also be a good idea in situations where you may lend out skis to visiting friends. A small investment would make your setup a lot more versatile.
Mounting them is a tad difficult as there is no template that I can find and there is no centerline mark on the plate. With some patience though, it can be successfully done by anyone with a rudimentary tool set.
What is the bolt pattern width on these plates. I have the Plum Phat Boy/Yak bindings and am considering eliminating the toe base plate and switching the wide heel plate to find a bolt pattern that is as closely compatible with the Volkl V Werks h pattern mounting template. I have seen numerous bindings mocked up safely with the H Pattern template on Wild Snow.
