Questions & Reviews

Question from Eric K
Considering a frankentele setup, If I use the tele heel spacer under a GT 2.0 tech heel and on top of a Kreuzspitze adjustable plate will be too high to lock into my tech heel? I just need something to support my heel when I’m teleing in my tele alp tech toes (dynafit radical)? If so what spacer should I use on my adjustable heel plate or under the GT 2.0 to get the right height?
Answer from Will McD
Hi Eric, the tele heel spacer is actually designed for the GT and GT 2.0 heel to be used atop a Kreuzspitze adjustment plate, though the necessary pin height will actually depend on the boot. If you're in a Scarpa/Scott/Crispi NTN boot then the height should work out to be just around right. If you're using an old F1 or F3, the rockered sole will cause the heel to sit higher so you may need something else under the heel, or (this is what I would do) you can shim the toe on top of the Telealp plate to raise the toe pins and lower the delta (the height of the toe pins relative to the part of the plate that the boot rests on will determine the ultimate height of the heel pins).
Answer from Eric K
I am using F3s so do I build a shim or are there aftermarket shims that fit the tele alp plate or radical toe?
Answer from Will McD
Hmm, we're starting to get pretty into the weeds now, please shoot us an email at and I can give you more specific answer for your particular setup.

Question from Tamara
Are these heel risers Kreuzspitze compatible with the Black diamond 02 binding?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Tamara,

The Kreuzspitze Tele Heel Riser will not be the best replacement for the Black Diamond 02 binding. The Kreuzspitze riser is lower than BD, which would result in a negative binding delta, and may even counter flex your boot. Also, the Kreuzspitze riser does not have a place to clip the cable in order to keep it out of the way when in walk mode.

Question from Mike C
Are you expecting the tele cable system back in inventory this winter?
Answer from Will McD
Hi Mike,
We are not planning on seeing any more but if you shoot an email to us at we can look into placing a special order with Kreuzspitze. The Voile Switchback Cable System is also compatible with the Kreuzspitze Telealp Plate if you're looking for something to work with that.

Question from Mike Curiak
Is there a visual difference between the soft, standard, and firm springs?
Answer from Will McD
Hi Mike, as best I can tell the only visual difference is the thickness (diameter) of the metal itself, with thicker metal corresponding to firmer performance.

Question from mike
Re Kreuzspitze Telemark Heel pieces.
Not following descriptions. What is riser- what is a spacer?
Normally described as a heel piece. How high is the heel piece -not counting the climbing wire. can "riser" and "spacer" be combined? If so what is total height?
Answer from Jeff
Mike, The Spacer is for a tech heel piece if you want to go that route. If you aren't going for the locked heel option, then you would just need the riser. The riser will bring your heel to the level of the toepiece and give you the climbing bars.

Question from Alex
What does the tele spring come with? Is it what is shown in the picture with the cartridge, hook, cable and heel lever? Or does it only come with a cartridge?
Answer from TSB
Alex, the tele springs are just that, springs alone. In order to have full kit compatibility you'll need to purchase the tele cable system. As usual, the liberation of the heel comes at a price!

Question from tom
What is the height of the heel plate/riser part?

Answer this question:

Question from Paul Francis Lewis
what parts come with the heel kit? the springs only or springs plus heel plate/riser?
Answer from Jeff
Hi Paul,
Things are a bit confusing. The kit comes with just what is pictured, that is the riser for the toe with the part that the cables connect too. And you also need cables, risers, and a whole ski binding to complete your Tele tech kit.

Question from Yann T
According to (, the Kreuzspitze spring cartridges have longer travel distance than other makes. Moreover, they note that the maximum travel distance varies according to spring stiffness: the 'soft' springs offer more travel distance that the 'medium' and 'stiff'. Here are my questions:
1) Do you know this to be true?
2) Can you say if the maximum travel distance for the soft springs is really 48 mm (as stated by
3) Do you know if the Kreuzspitze cartridges are compatible with Voilé rods (note: these have the same gauge and thread as the G3 Targa cables, which is really what i'm trying to use for a DIY tele-tech idea).
Answer from Trace Leches
Hi Yann!
1) I haven't heard any info either way.
2) Seeing as is equally as geeky about Tele gear as we are about skimo gear, so I would definitely trust that info.
3) I don't think that they are compatible with anything from Voile.
We will reach out to Kreuzspitze to see if we can get any more info about this and will follow up if we hear anything.
Answer from Yann T
Thanks for all this. Somewhere on the Kreuzspitze website they also state that their soft springs have a 48 mm travel, so it sounds like that would be the truth. Thanks for looking into the compatibility of the rods...
Answer from Yann T
Any news from Kreuzspitze? Any way to measure the thread on their rods?
Answer from jbo
Hi Yann, we are unable to measure the travel, sorry.
Answer from Yann T
Thanks jbo, actually I was wondering if you were able to determine if a Voilé rod could be threaded into these cartridges... this would depend on the thread.
Answer from jbo
Hi Yann, we don't have any Voile rods to attempt, sorry.
Answer from Kristopher Z
I'm also curious about the compatibility. Voile rods are a standard ISO metric M5 thread. Does Kreuzspitze use an M5 thread as well? (this is actually the same thread pattern as QK and BF binding inserts, so I think you could verify but just trying to screw in the standard M5 screw used with inserts).
Answer from Yann T
If, by any chance, you have G3 Targa cables kicking around, I'd very much like to know if they can be threaded into the Kreuzspitze cartridges...
Answer from jbo
Hi Kristopher and Yann, the Kreuzspitze rods also use M5 threads, so it's probable that Voile or G3 rods would work.

Question from Diane Friedman
I have G3 tele skis with Rottefelle bindings; I need to replace the heel lift part. Would another heel lift work?
Answer from Nate
Hi Diane, we haven't ever stocked Rottefelle bindings and no one seems to have any familiarity with them here. Unfortunately, I don't believe we can give you an accurate answer.

Question from Jeff
Would I need the tool to attach a set of these springs to the rods on my OMG TTS bindings? Thanks!
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Jeff! Tough to say for sure if they're compatible or not (we don't carry OMG) but if the spring cartridge is compatible with the Olympus rods then yes you'd need the tool to install them.

Question from Kwan
Hi, can I buy just the KREUZSPITZE spring cartridges/yoke with the stiff springs without the heel lever and side rods?
If so, what is the price?
Regards, Kwan
Answer from jbo
Hi Kwan, unfortunately those parts aren't available separately.
Answer this question:

Question from Barrett McMurtry
I broke the heel rod off inside the KREUZSPITZE spring cartridge. I opened it up and can't access the broken piece to remove it. I would like to avoid having to buy a whole new spring cartridge assembly. Is it possible to get just the steel piece inside the cartridge that the heel rod threads into?
Answer from jbo
Hi Barrett, that is not a part that is separately available unfortunately. If it's a warranty case, I'd ask your dealer to handle it for you.
Answer this question:

Question from Andy M
Is any mounting hardware included with the heel spacers? If not, do I need to get longer screws/bolts to go with the GT heels and adjustment plates?
Answer from jbo
Hi Andy, the heel spacer kits comes with 8 16mm flathead bolts with 3mm hex heads. They will get your heels on the plates.
