I'm after some replacement forks (preferably steel) for some ATK Race SL bindings and curious about what brands might be compatible. As far as I can gather Hagan & Fisher race bindings are identical, but I cannot track down replacement parts for any of them. Do you know if the forks from Kreuzspitze or SkiTrab would fit?
Hi Kaj, we have the titanium forks listed under Hagan bindings parts. Unfortunately steel ones aren't available for that binding, and no others fit well. At least the titanium version is relatively inexpensive.
When will the heel support pads be available?
Can they be used over an adjustment plate? Presumably with a longer bolt through the plate...
Does the boot heel touch them when skiing normally? Maybe resisting lateral heel exit from binding. Am I understanding right that they are meant to save the heel piece from fatigue when skiing with a pack - resulting in rotation slop or bent springs?
Hi Joe, the support pads work with a bare heel or the adjustment plates. Both lengths of screws will be included in the kits (expected 9/15). Also included is a front screw that can adjust the height of the pad slightly to account for variations in boot sole thickness. This allows tuning of the desired amount of support versus lateral-release interference. While not specifically designed to prevent the failures you mention (I've never seen bent springs, e.g.), the pads can add some stability during descent and also offer a riser platform in walk mode (preventing a negative ramp angle when the heel is turned 90°).
Hi JSD, forks are not standardized nor meant to be swapped across various models. That said, despite being thicker, the SCTT forks do fit in the Trab housing. The pins stick out further so you'd need something like a 5.6mm heel gap. That could change the release mechanics to levels that may not work for you.
