Telemark parts by Kreuzspitze, mostly designed for use with the Kreuzspitze tele-tech kit. Enjoy long travel with the innovative cable system that features swappable springs. Tune your stance with risers and spacers.
Tele Cable System - Backcountry heel kit with replaceable springs. Cool design that lets you swap springs to control the tension. Comes with "standard" tension springs installed. Soft and stiff springs available.
Soft/Standard/Stiff Springs - Swappable springs for the cable system. Use the Spring Wrench to change springs and dial in your feel.
Spring Wrench - Tool to open the cable cartridge and swap springs between soft, medium, or hard.
Tele Heel Risers - Simple heel pad and riser system compatible with G3 hole pattern. Riser can be operated with poles. Technopolymer and coated steel. 34g (1.2oz) per heel.
Tele Heel Spacers - Spacer that is mounted under the GT/SCTT heel pieces for use with the telemark kit. 6.5mm thick, 20g.
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?
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.
According to telemarkskier.com (http://www.telemarkskier.com/tele-tech-chronicles-spring-size-matters/), 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 telemarkskier.com) 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).
Hi Yann! 1) I haven't heard any info either way. 2) Seeing as Telemarkskier.com 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.
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...
Any news from Kreuzspitze? Any way to measure the thread on their rods?
Hi Yann, we don't have any Voile rods to attempt, sorry.
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).
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...
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?
