Maruelli is the Italian version of B&D, making useful aftermarket parts for tech bindings. They use the highest quality materials to ensure modified products are even more robust than they started. Find our growing list of Maruelli binding parts below.
Speed Antitwist Base x2 – Machined out of Titanal, this heel baseplate/spindle for the Speed Radical binding has a metal post that prevents unwanted rotation while skinning. It mounts directly onto your ski, lowering the heel pins by 3.5mm for a flatter ramp angle. There is 6mm of fore/aft adjustment if you mount it with inserts. 37 grams (1.2 ounces) each, lighter than stock heel bases. Works well with Plum Guide screws (mounting). Maruelli recommends these bases on skis no wider than 80mm.
23 mm Base Tracks - Adjustment tracks that provide 23mm of fore/aft range for the Speed Antitwist. The tracks use the standard Dynafit heel pattern so they can be used as a drop in replacement for an existing heel tower. Made with the same aerospace-grade aluminum alloy as the bases, the tracks are 7.5mm thick and weigh 34g per ski with the included Inox (stainless) adjustment bolts. Two pairs per pack.
73 mm Base Tracks - Maximum adjustability for your Antitwist heels, with a total travel distance of roughly 73mm. Mounting pattern is the same as Dynafit rental bindings so a standard jig works. The tracks are 7.5mm thick and weigh 47g per ski with top-of-the-line stainless steel (Inox) adjustment bolts, included with the two pairs of tracks.
TLT Antitwist Base x2 - Replacement baseplates for the TLT Speed / Classic binding that prevent unwanted rotation into ski mode. Lighter than stock baseplates as a bonus. Not compatible with Speed Turns or Radicals.
Click-Clack Risers - Flipper-style risers for the TLT Classic and Speed Turn bindings for those who prefer pole tricks instead of wrist kinks. Also decent replacements for broken Radical roofs.
Radical Antitwist Locks - Metal brackets that slide into Radical ST or FT heel pieces to prevent unwanted rotation while in touring mode. Remove any legacy pins in the heel tower and screw on this final answer. Sold in pairs and come with Inox bolts. 27g per ski including hardware.
Toe Spring - Coiled spring used in Dynafit-style toe pieces that handles the opening and closing of the wings.
Toe Spring Coupler Set - Black plastic pieces that connect the left and right toe wings on many Dynafit-style bindings.
Trab Heel Spring - The U-spring for Trab race heels, similar to TR-Race model.
Trab Heel Spring Retainer - Twisted flat retainer bar that hold the U-springs in place on Ski Trab race heels.
Leash Safe Loops x5 - Breakaway leash loops to ensure you skis don’t pull you down in an avalanche. Connect these somewhere along your leash chain and they will break when the right force is applied. 6 grams per loop, sold in packs of 5. Note these are the newest version that only require 1 loop per ski (previously they needed to be doubled up). Breaking force is around 75lbs.
Questions & Reviews
Are they still available and if so what might be the cost?
(Or only Radicals and Speed Turns?)
Two, has anybody tried these breakable links with the standard Dynafit leash? Are the holes large enough to clip in the Dynafit little carabiners? I guess I could use girth hitch to connect the link to the supplied loop, but then I'd have to connect to the wire on the boot... Anybody tried this system?
The Dynafit biners fit right through the Maruelli links so that system works fine.
The most obvious, as mentioned above, had to cut-n-file plastic fin that holds brakes closed while in uphill mode, pretty straightforward.
The no so obvious thing was that the original titanal heel post from FT12 is about 4mm higher, so the heelhead (actual heel with the pins&springs that sits on the heelpost) sits higher and needs more clearance from the bottom.
So in order to use Maruelli part be prepared that you have to also file down ~4mm from the bottom of cyll plastic collar,
which is also not a big deal but wasn't expected.
I appreciate you help, much thanks . . .
Would the Maruelli Antitwist possibly work with an older Vertical FT heel unit, if the anti twist post was filed down? Would it turn in either direction like the old Vertical bindings.
Would the Maruelli Antitwist possibly work with the Speed Turn heel unit?
