To use the Marker Kingpin bindings with boots that have shallow heel welts (e.g.Dynafit TLT series), you'll need this adapter. Four screws drill into your boot heel and hold it into place, adding only a few grams and making your lightweight boot compatible with this powerful pin tech/alpine hybrid binding. If you have any questions or are unsure about whether or not your boot requires this adaptor to fit the Kingpin M-Werks, feel free to email or call us and we will do our best to help you sort out what you should do.
Are these needed to use the TLT 7 Expedition boots with the Kingpin bindings?
Marker says its for the TLT 5 & 6, but doesn't mention the TLT 7. Looks like the heel welts are pretty shallow on the 7's too.
Thanks for the feedback. I now see on the TLT the real shallow heel depth compared to the Vulcan. Does last years Hoji fall into the same category as the Vulcan, meaning no significant heel hold problems with Kingpin without an adapter?
I own a pair of 30.0 Vulcan boots. Do I need a set of these adapters to use Kingpin bindings with the Vulcans. I measured the heel ledge is shorter on my Viulcans than my Maestrale boots. Thanks for your insights. Joe
