Taking a hut trip or long traverse and want some backup? Want to revive an old, beat-up pair of skis? G3’s tech heel pieces are available separately and now you can rest knowing you don’t have to buy a new binding when one component takes a beating. The heel pieces are priced and sold individually, without brakes/baseplates and weigh 195g each.
Please note this listing is just the turrets. Find the brakes separately here.
Questions & Reviews
Assuming it is the gen 2 or 3, will it fit into the baseplate of the gen 1?
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.
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?
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!
This listing is just the turret, though!
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.
would the new heel pieces fit the same hole pattern ?
