Kreuzspitze has come to the rescue for skiers who find they have too much ramp angle in touring bindings. The 14 millimeter adjustment plates are screw-hole compatible with Dynafit TLT Vertical / Radical / Comfort / Speed heel units. That means you can replace a touring heel with a race heel without redrilling. Also available are 18mm and 40mm heel plates, a fast rental-style 40mm adjustment system, and a 3 position toe shift plate that works with any Dynafit Classic toe pattern. PRICED and SOLD in PAIRS.
Here is what ships: Two plates (a pair) with all the adjustment nuts & bolts. NO "mounting screws" are included! See Note below about the screws.
Heel adjustments offer 14mm, 18mm, and 40mm of adjustment range.
Adjustment slots are compatible with Kreuzspitze or Plum 135/145* heel pieces.
New adjustment bolts have stronger Torx heads for reduced chance of stripping.
Demo adjustment plate can quickly move the heel piece with a flathead screwdriver.
KR Hole Adjuster effectively moves existing drill holes for SCTT and GT bindings, allowing +/- 10mm.
Universal plate works with Trab, ATK, Montura heels. Plus the SCTT mounted sideways.
Toe shift plate has 3 slots spaced 13.5mm apart to help center boots on the ski.
TLT Heel Shifter lets you move Classic Dynafit heels in 6mm increments.
LTR Heel Shifter fits the old 4-hole Low Tech Race bindings from Dynafit.
*Note you need Kreuzspitze screws to mount the plates as the Plum screws won't fit in the recessed holes.
Hi, I’ve got Kreuzspitze GTs mounted for a boot I’ve sold, and replaced with one with about 7mm more sole length, no longer fitting the current mount. What would be the best heel plate to buy in this instance: the KR hole adjuster, or one of the variable heel plates? It would be useful to have some future play for other boots. Thanks
I am wanting to mount some speedfits to adjustment plates to accommodate my wife's minus 4 to 5 size hoofs. For toes, I have sourced a B&D radical compatible shift plate, but speedfit heels are not so rad, and I am having some trouble sourcing an adjustable speedfit heel plate. I believe 28mm is the speedfit heel hole width, which matches the LTR 2.0 width. This page description cites "old low tech race" but the hole pattern chart lists two LTR's. Which hole width does this LTR heel plate fit? https://skimo.co/tech-binding-hole-patterns
Hey Evan. Unfortunately, I think you're out of luck on the heel adjustment plate for that binding as it already sits on a small track that gives about 10mm of total adjustment range and the toe shift plate is probably your best bet. In theory mounting the heel on one of those adjustment plates could work because you are correct, the hole pattern of the heel is the same width as the LTR 2.0. The issue I'm seeing with mounting the heels onto any of those adjustment tracks is the length of the hole pattern would likely overshoot the entire length of the adjustment track or at least eat up an overwhelming majority of the length which wouldn't do a whole lot except for be an expensive way to add weight and raise your binding delta.
One of the first ever LTR bindings (before the times of SkimoCo) had a 4-hole pattern which the Kreuzspitze LTR Heel Adjuster is compatible with, but pretty much none of the existing bindings on the market will drop into that plate.
What Dynafit hole patterns are considered to be "classic"? Can I mount Dynafit FT 12 and/or speed radicals, via toe shift and 40mm fast plates? Are toe and heel plates of the same thickness? Can toe shift be combined with a B&D toe shim to minimize delta?
Hey Evan! Potentially! There are about 5 bindings that have the designation "FT 12" so it's important to know which generation of binding you are aiming for. The "classic" toe pieces are the 5-Hole patterns like the Vertical, Comfort, TLT Speed, etc. The hole pattern on Dynafit heel pieces hasn't changed much up until just recently, but you definitely can't mount the heels to the fast plate though as those are designed for the Kreuzspitze heels.
Hi, do the 14mm heel plates share the same hole pattern with the old red Dynafit Speed Superlite demos? (the adjustable track heel pieces). If so, is it possible to reuse the same holes, maybe with QK inserts or something, that had originally been mounted for SSL1.0 Demos?
Can you confirm that the K18 plate has exactly the same hole pattern as the G3 ION heel, so I'll be able to mount it while reusing some old g3 ion holes ? And that I'll be able to mount some Plum 150 heel on top of it ?
Other question, do you think it would be safe to mount a plum race toe just in the middle of some G3 ION toe holes ? There should be something about 7mm between the old holes and new holes I guess ? What do you think ?
Hi Boris, I can confirm that the K18 hole pattern matches the heel of the G3 Ion and that you will be able to mount a Plum 150 heel on it.
I can't make a definitive statement about mounting the toe without looking at the ski and lining a jig up on the holes. It's pretty likely that you can find a way to get the toe mounted safely, but you may encounter some struggle keeping the heelpiece in the old holes while realigning the toes. Only one way to find out, give it a shot.
I don’t have a Plum Race toe to look at but if the tech pins are centered in the mounting hole pattern you should be able to align the holes between the Ion toe holes. If you look st the photo I attached here you can see the two hole patterns on the adapter plate in the foreground that I made to do this same swap with my Kreuzspitze toe.
Kreuzspitze K-18 tension plate and KR tension plate. I bought the K-18 because I found that the screw hole pattern is the same as the Ion heel screw hole pattern. I'm using it to adapt my SCTT heels to the Ion drilled inserts in my skis. I stacked the KR plate on top of the K-18 for greater adjustment so I can ski my Mtn Labs and my Procline Carbon on the same mount. I then made a 10mm Delrin adapter plate for the toe to mount my SCTTT toe to the Ion drilled inserts in the 2 pairs of Scott Superguide skis. The plates are 54g and have inserts for the binding screws. The stacked plates work perfectly and give me a zero ramp angle combined with my adapter plates.
Could you please tell me what the width of the screw attachment (in mm) to the ski for the Kreuzspitze Universal 25mm and Toe Shift plates are? I contacted Kreuzspitze directly for this information but they have not answered. Thanks much...
if I have quiver killer installed on my ski, what kind of scrws (to mount the plate to the ski) should I order for 14 Kreuzspitze Adjustment Plates? I think by default the screws come along with will be the one derictly mount on ski on wood basis, not the the one for quiver killer
Got a pair of KREUZSPITZE bindings but my new boots a tad too long. I'm using the K18 heel plate. Would you recommend I swap out to a 25mm plate or the 40mm plate? (And then redrill the two rear holes.) Weight difference is a not an issue for me.
The Universal fits La Sportiva RSR heel binders perfectly, mounted with Quiver Killers and Vibra-tite using 5mm x 0.8mm x 10mm flat head Phillips machine screws. Use a T20 Torx instead of a Phillips and all your hardware will take the same driver.
We live in a special time for ski touring. When before could you combine Dynafit toe, a Plum Race 145 heel, and a 14mm Kreuzpitze plate to create a lightweight setup without having to redrill already-mounted-for-dynafit skis? That setup costs less than $200 and shaves over half a pound off your binding setup (per pair, assuming you already have speed radicals) . So, suffice it to say, these plates are pretty rad.
The Toe Shift plates are a great addition to Speed Rad/Turn bindings to reduce ramp angle and add a few more boot sizes to the options these bindings heel adjustments allow for. It would be overkill for most non rental situations for a single user. However, I got these for some skis that my kids will use and as they grow the bindings can now grow with them! They would also be a good idea in situations where you may lend out skis to visiting friends. A small investment would make your setup a lot more versatile.
Mounting them is a tad difficult as there is no template that I can find and there is no centerline mark on the plate. With some patience though, it can be successfully done by anyone with a rudimentary tool set.
What is the bolt pattern width on these plates. I have the Plum Phat Boy/Yak bindings and am considering eliminating the toe base plate and switching the wide heel plate to find a bolt pattern that is as closely compatible with the Volkl V Werks h pattern mounting template. I have seen numerous bindings mocked up safely with the H Pattern template on Wild Snow.
