Five Stars to . . . Skimo Co for stocking these!
Yes, they’ve always been available from Dynafit, but exactly what was available has been mysterious, and the shipping charges can be prohibitive for their smaller-value items.
Highlights for some of my favorite items:
LTR Titanium Forks
– Ti race forks will eventually notch to the extent that they’re somewhat rattly and also so hooky as to interfere with lateral release, so stock up on a backup set whenever they’re available.
LTR Steel Forks
– Alternatively, if you don’t mind a little extra weight, want a higher forward release value, and/or don’t want to bother replacing the forks again, just get the less expensive steel version (and even sell your unused Ti forks to a gram counter).
– An essential spare part for your month-long expedition for Whereveristan.
– Another potential application is swapping a single set of heels among multiple skis (although careful with the cross threading upon reinsertion of the lateral release spring).
Vertical ST Toe Plate
– Easy way to reduce the heel > toe delta on an old Classic/Speed or the current Speed Turn. (See the Skimo Co article on “Binding Pin Heights” for background.)
TLT Speed Nubbin
– Perfect spacers to impart a bit more bite to Dynafit ski crampons, secured with hardware store fasteners (e.g., T-Nut with Brad hole 6-32 x 1¼ plus corresponding machine screws).
TLT Speed Climbing Aid
– Convert a flip-style Radical heel into a more basic (and potentially more reliable) turn-style elevator system.
– Achieve what is possibly the highest cost:weight reduction possible, just to show everyone how serious and/or rich you are.
Torx (steel) Screws
– Essential for shim installations to reduce heel > toe delta, plus essential spare parts for your month-long expedition to Whereveristan.
