Dynafit invented tech fittings which revolutionized ski touring. Get your replacement fittings here. Well, the heel fittings since generally the toe fittings are not replaceable as they are molded into the boots.
Boot Heel Inserts x2 - AKA Heel Tech Inserts, these are the bits of metal that allow alping touring ski boots to click into Dynafit and other pintech heels. Fits older style Dynafit boots with one-screw installation.
Power / Beast Heel Inserts x2 - The kit to retrofit a boot for use with the Dynafit Beast bindings. Includes metal horseshoes and screws.
Hey David, thanks for reaching out! Based on this photo, the metal heel insert looks like it is in fine condition, but the screw and the shell plastic may be worn a bit. There's a chance that you might heel-strike onto the metal heel insert while walking around on rock/pavement if the sole rubber is worn down in that spot, and that could risk shearing the screw. I also notice the Phillips head of the screw is slightly beginning to strip, which makes me wonder if the threads in the plastic shell hole may be slightly stripped as well.
Replacing a heel fitting in the field is possible, as long as the screw didn't break off and leave a piece inside, and as long as the threads in the plastic shell aren't stripped.
This is a follow up question that Jeff M answered about the Scott Voodoo NTN boots.
Question - by "insert" - do you mean the black plastic insert that is on the heal of the boot? When looking at my new pair of Voodoo NTN boots - it looks like I could take out that insert - but I am uncertain if the heal underneath the black insert is "shaped" to take the tech insert or not. Will I be looking at micro carving out the plastic heal to make the insert work? Thanks.
Thanks Spin, I could only find pictures that didn't show the black insert that was vaguely shaped like a tech inset. Scarpa no longer has inserts or a cutout on their NTN boot. As i mentioned the rocker and bellows will not give a solid sole and would at best be unsafe.
Hey Peter, luckily this is a quick repair! You'll want to purchase the "Boot Heel Insert" option in the drop down menu.
Hi Teddy, thanks for this. It looks like the last insert sheered off, leaving part of it in the plastic, so I might have to drill it out. Not sure if the new screw will still hold (might have to epoxy it in?). Thanks!
I have a pair of Dynafit Beast 14 bindings that I am trying to set up with an older pair of Scarpa TX Pro (Blk/Org)boots.
I have been unable to adjust the bindings to get the boot to click in the heel. The boots I have, have the smaller standard tech heel inserts, not the horseshoe version shown above.
My question(s): Do I need to replace the heel inserts with the horseshoe inserts? If I do this will I be able to get the binding adjusted right for the TX Pros? Or am I missing something? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
In response to the last question. The Beast Carbon ski boot has the insert that is screwed from the inside. The Beast/power horseshoe adapter seems to only screw from the outside. Can I still somehow attach it? Or is there a different adapter?
I noticed that only the Master Heel Inserts are in stock, but I have a Dalbello Lupo AX so this wouldn't work out. I lost one of the Heel Inserts messing around in the garage and can't seem to find it. I was wondering if you were going to get the regular Heel Inserts in stock again, or if you had a suggestion as to where to get a pair?
Travis, looks like we are temporarily out of stock on those. Good news is Dynafit inserts are sold by a few companies who use their fittings. When we are out of stock, go to SCARPA Hardware page and order Rear Tech fitting and Tech heel hole screw (if you also need the screw). It is individual, so order 2 if you need both.
Are these items the "horseshoe" plate that attaches to the boot's heel for the Beast Binding? Your pulldown menu says, "Beast Boot Heel Insert" and your webpage description says, "Beast Heel Inserts - AKA Power Inserts, the kit to retrofit a boot for use with the Dynafit Beast bindings. Includes metal bands and screws." Are these the same on your site?
Hi I have a pair of Scarpa TX Pros. (the older orange and black model). they are missing the heel insert (tech insert) metal piece. I think the dynafit insert will fit, but not sure what to order on your site. Can you help me out?
