Questions & Reviews

Question from Peter Kratzke
The following is still a bit unclear to me. I have the first-generation IONs, and I would like to see what it takes to get heel pieces with the anti-rotation lock, which, from what I can tell, was was introduced in 2018. Will buying just these heel pieces do the trick?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Peter. It appears the anti-rotation lock is built primarily into the baseplate. So, simply purchasing a new heel turret won't provide anti-rotation properties. This has to do with the baseplate having a "groove" that the heel turret can settle into. For more information on this, please click here.

Question from Yuri Melnychuk

I broke my high heel lift on one of my g3 zed 12's on a tour recently (don't know how it snapped), am hoping to find a replacement for it - it should be as there is a pin that is removable that runs through them. Is such a thing available or am I stuck buying a whole new heel turret?

Answer from Tristan M
Hi Yuri,

Unfortunately, we have been unable to get our hands on spare heel risers for G3 bindings. Outside of a DIY fix, replacing a heel piece would probably be your cheapest option. We do not currently have any Zed Heel Pieces in stock. If you would like to be set up for a notification that will alert you when we get more, feel free to reach out to!

Question from Guy Audette
How much for a new baseplate for for the first gen. ion? No turret. Just baseplate. I’ve got some play in the heel piece so I’m guessing that it’s coming from there and it’s affecting the brake release!
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Guy. We sell the baseplate as "Ion Brakes," and they can be found here. They are $79.95. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from Rodney Newcombe
Which generation / year is this version of the ION 12 heel turret?

Assuming it is the gen 2 or 3, will it fit into the baseplate of the gen 1?
Answer from Will M
Hey Rodney,

All of our extra heels are currently the most recent ones. Since the inception of the ION, there has been no change in the way it is mounted to the baseplate. Thus, you should be all good at mixing and matching heels & baseplates from different generations.

Question from Greg
Any chance you’ll be selling these g3 ion heel pieces/turrets again? I can’t find them anywhere. G3 sells the entire heel assembly at a much higher cost.
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Greg. We will be getting these in, hopefully sooner rather than later. If you'd like to be notified when they come in, please reach out to us at and let us know which model you're after (e.g. LT, 10 or 12).

Question from Stephen R
I have G3 Ion 12 bindings and I am having two issues: 1) the heel lifts flop around with no resistance, often engaging on their own. I believe there is supposed to be a spring underneath to prevent this from happening. Do you sell that part?
2) my turret unintentionally rotates back into ski mode on its own at random when I am in tour mode. Is that a problem with the turret or something on the base plate?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for your question, Stephen!

1.The heel lifts rely on the machining of the metal part interfacing with the plastic underneath to provide resistance. My guess is that the plastic piece has worn down, resulting in the heel lifts flipping over easily. Unfortunately, there is no official remedy to this, besides purchasing a new heel.

2. As a past owner of this binding, I did have this issue intermittently. It typically happened while side-hilling during particularly icy days. To my knowledge, there is no fix to this, either.

Please reach out if you have any other questions!

Question from Zack Little
Is there anywhere that I can find a ZED 12 heelpeice? Or will this heelpeice work with ZED 12 toepeice? And does it have the same mounting pattern with the screws? Thanks!
Answer from eric
Zack- We do not sell the Zed heel pieces. Zed and ion heel use different tracks. So you would haver to purchase an Ion heel track/brake and then an Ion heel piece to make a full heel. Screws are different as well.

Question from Trey
Would the LT12 heel turret work on the standard Ion12 that has brakes? I have one bad turret and can’t seem to find an exact replacement so I’m wondering if slapping the LT one on would work.
Answer from Jeff
Trey, yes it is compatible with the Ion 12.

Question from Corrie
I was wondering if this would be compatible with the LT12 Binding. I had a heel piece snap in half and was looking for an affordable way to replace it.
Answer from Jeff
Corrie, yes, this is the LT 12 heel.

Question from wtofd
Hi, what is the weight for a single ION LT heel piece with screws and any other necessary piece (AFD, eg)? Thanks!
Answer from Teddy Young
A single Ion LT with baseplate weighs 300 g. This is with the baseplate and 4 mounting screws, but no AFD or brakes as this binding is brakeless.

This listing is just the turret, though!

Question from Raymond H
Would this Ion LT heel work on a Gen 1 ION baseplate? I want a heel piece that doesn't auto-rotate into ski mode while skinning, which my LT heels do now.

Would your LT Heel include the base plate to stop this unwanted rotation?

So I would like to get the ION LT Gen 2 heel, that locks into the baseplate for skinning.

Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Raymond! They should be cross compatible with one another without issue. Although I am suspecting that you are looking for an ION LT Heel Plate instead of a new heel turret?

Question from Ryan Hollow
I have the 1 gen G3 Ion bindings, but I broke the heel pieces ...
would the new heel pieces fit the same hole pattern ?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Ryan! Yeah, they should just drop into the existing holes without issue.
