Questions & Reviews
As the heel would be locked by the cables, would the release on the toes be safe enough?
Thank you for your answer
As with any telemark binding, "safe enough" is rather subjective, but yes, it is possible to release laterally. There are, however, no certifications of any kind promising consistent release with the cable on and you will not vertically release from this binding. I would not rely on it if you are concerned about protecting a sensitive injury, but it has released me during a fall before.
Ordered the Kreuzspitze Tele Tech kit . Will be assembling a Tele Tech set up as a project for next season. Seeking advice on deciding upon a tech toe to use. What Brand do you think Works best? Do the Kreuzspitze tech toes work well? Will be using this set up predominantly for backcountry .
Appreciate any insight. Thank you.
Mounting: This adapter is very easy to mount as there is only one piece to mount for a ski. The Wasatch TTS binding uses a stand alone toe and cable plate so there are 2 entities to align. I mounted these myself on planks previously housing 22-Designs Outlaw bindings. Earnyourturns has a template showing the various mounting patterns superimposed so I had a solid reference, and drilling holes was easy.
Skiing: This system is telemark perfection!!!
The only other tele binding I skied is the 22D Outlaw, so it's my baseline for a comparison.
Tech toes upfront provide such a solid and secure grasp on the toes that I doubt even duckbills can compete.
Zero side to side slop. Zero vertical slop. Instant engagement, smooth spring tension.
The old fashioned cartridge springs offer a glorious tele sensation, I finally understand why so many refused to jump on the NTN wagon. The DB cable hooks wobble and come off the pivot rod if left dangling, but I secured the hooks with twist ties that seem to work ok.
This adapter is the key to the perfect tele binding system. All of the benefits of tech, all the liberated heels of telemark. Pure granola free heel glory.
And are these compatible with Dynafit toe pieces?
I have skis mounted with Voile CRBs. If I want to replace them with the Kreuzspitze set-up, will I be able to use the same holes?
What do you think?
If you ski low, you'll want the longer springs that you can get through Moonlight skis or OMG/Wasatch ski.
