HI I need a canting part for a Right 1st gen Spectre. I also find that the Right boot will resist going back into ski mode (issue present before the cant screw fell out), do you have replacement parts for these?
Hey Irishkoot! Canting kits are sold individually and doesn't matter which side you throw them on, though it sounds like potentially the ski/walk mech needs replacing (which it looks like we also have at the moment).
I see similar questions asked above, but I'll ask again and hope for the answer I want. I have a pair of TLT5 boots with the junk in-step buckle it came with. I see your webpage linked to the same wildsnow.com page I found about modifying boots with different buckles. I realize the boot was not designed to use the pegasus buckle, but if I were to buy one and rig it on there myself, what length would work the best? The toe buckle, or the cuff buckle?

Hey David, thanks for reaching out. Tough to say exactly as it'll depend a bit on the size of boot you are wearing. Take a flexible tape measure, accessory cord, shoe lace, yarn, something along those lines, and measure from rivet hole to rivet hole on either side of the shell. Relay that info back to me and we'll get you the proper buckle size.
I am looking for a replacement buckle for for my La Sportiva Sparkle Boots. The wire is fraying badly. It is the second buckle up from the bottom (I guess this would be the instep buckle?). Is the Pegasus Instep Buckle the correct piece?
Also, do you sell the white plastic buckles for the tail of the Pomoca Climb Pro S Skins?
Is there a replacement for the yellow plastic piece that is attached to the spring that locks the heel down (takes it out of the walk mode)? That broke on me along with a few buckles , Cant bolt and a wire. Any help would be great ! Thanks!
Considering a mod for the instep buckle of my Dynafit Mercury. Looks like the toe buckle for the Pegasus may be the right length. Do you have any kind of specific measurement, like the mounting bolt to far catch hole? I would need two pairs including the catches. What would that cost? (Don't see the catches above).
Hey Keith. I think you may be on to something! The measurement from the center of the mounting hole to the center of the far catch is 113mm. This was measured with the buckle in the closed position and at the maximum length adjustment range of the barrel adjuster. If the length is too great you can tighten the barrel adjuster and get it down to about 100mm from center to center.
I had the cant bolt fall out of my Spectre 1.0 boot. It was lost in the snow. Can I get a replacement from you guys ? I'm also needing a buckle replacement (over the instep, second from the toe). I've also broken both tongues along the side where the black flex point is... Though, the cant assembly is the only piece I can't ski without.
Hi James, unfortunately this isn't available separately. It's possible Sportiva warranty might find one for you.
The exact thing happened to me, I am currently waiting for La Sportive to respond to my letter. I was stuck in ski mode and when I pulled the plastic back to look at the mech. The plastic gear and a spring fell out. I bought the boots last spring, very sad!
I want to do the pegasus buckle mod on my Vulcans. The original strap is not long enough when I use my custom tongues. Which strap would you recommend? It appears that I need either the lower cuff buckle or the instep buckle. I have size 24.5 mondo.
Hi Lars, it's hard to say what length you need with a custom tongue. Since you can place them anywhere, it might not matter. In general, the lower down on the boot, the shorter the wire and the less the buckle protrudes from it's axis.
