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.

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.

Question from Kyle
Will any of these plates work for the heel unit of the Dynafit Superlite 2.0 binding?
Answer from jbo
Hi Kyle, unfortunately not. We have a plate from B&D that will work though.

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.

Question from JCH
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.
Answer from jbo
Hi JCH, we have the mounting patterns listed here. Most of the K plates are 36mm wide.

by Chris W (used product regularly)
I have the 14mm plates that fit a standard Dynafit Radical or classic heel pattern for use with my Kreuspitze heels and Radical toes. They are simple and impressively light, thanks to strategic material removal and thin backing nuts which minimize plate thickness and ramp angle change. 14mm is plenty of range for my collection of boots (with a little forethought in mounting - consider the 6mm gap spec when doing so).

The mass penalty for the 18mm or 40mm plate is very small, but I have a near-perverse insistence that all of my skis have inserts and the same patterns so I can swap parts between them at will. If you have no such requirements, consider the longer plates.

Question from Andy
Would you recommend using something like blue Loctite on the adjustment nuts and bolts? They look like could be prone to loosening.
Answer from jbo
Hi Andy, we generally don't recommend Loctite if you plan on adjusting much, as it can lead to stripped bolt heads. There is a good amount of tension on the bolts so loosening doesn't seem to be a problem, even with grease. Check out this article for more details: Adjustment Plates.
Answer from Jesse M
Agreed. The screws seem to stay tight after abuse in the resort and some really rough use in the backcountry in very hard snow conditions.

Answer from jbo
