Maybe you need a replacement. Maybe you're building a franken-binding. Maybe you just want to lighten up your heels. We won't ask what you do with them, but we will take your money. These are Plum binding heel pieces, priced & sold INDIVIDUALLY. If you buy two, they come in a boxed set. If you buy one, we'll just put a stamp on the top and hope for the best. We'll even loosely tape the 4 included screws to the bottom of the heel. The French instruction sheet will get mailed to the person who buys the other one.

Question from liming z
 
What is the difference for plum race 150 heel piece 2017/18 vs new? Is the new one has the 8 for forward and lateral? But not the previous ? The mounting pattern supposed to be the same, right? How to tell which one is new visually?
7/12/2022
Answer from Will McD
 
Hi Liming, the only difference is that the pin height on the new version is about 2mm higher. The springs, materials, and mounting pattern are all the same between the versions.

Question from Hayden
 
Would I be able to replace a pair of Guide heels with Oazo 8 heels without having to redrill? I’m finding conflicting answers as to whether they share a screw pattern or not.. Would an older/different model of the Oazos, and/or on a different adjustment plate, fit?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Hayden, they don't match out of the box, but you can get "Wide Rail" adjustment plates to make it work.

My wife digs the R170 matched with Dynafit speed turn toes for a nice lightweight frankenbinding on her skinny volcano crusher skis. We haven't adjusted the length much, but it seems easy enough.

Question from Scott A
 
I have an old pair of Plum Race 185's with a broken fork, but I snapped the heel piece while trying to knock out the pin that holds the fork, so....I need a new heel piece that will screw into my existing Plum adjustment plate (original with the 185's).
I am a 200# skier and will use the above on spring peak descents.

Answer from Jeff
 
Hi Scott,
The Race 150 heel piece will work with the plate you have. It is the updated 145 heel you had.

Question from Greg
 
I currently own the Race 150. Is there a compatible plate I can buy so I can mount them on a wider ski? Currently have them on Objectives.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Greg, you don't necessarily need a wider mounting pattern, but the Kreuzspitze 14mm & 18mm plates are a bit wider.

Question from Juraj
 
Hi. What is the din setting equivalent ? How long is the adjustment in mm please? Thanks
2/2/2021
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Juraj, the Guide and Yak have an adjustable vertical and lateral release with 30mm of adjustment. The Race 150/170 are fixed-release with the latter having 17ish mm of adjustment.

Do the heel risers from the oazo 8s fit into the Plum Race170s heel piece fitting?

Hey Grant, the oazo risers will not fit with the race 170.

Question from Brian H
 
I'm selling some older Plum 170 heels to a friend in need. I'm thinking of replacing them with the newer Oazo. All my skis have inserts so the change over should be painless as long as the drill pattern is the same. Will these two line up?
11/11/2020
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Brian, you got it! The Oazo uses the same hole pattern as the Race 170.

Question from Taylor
 
looking to replace the heel pieces on my dynafit beast 14, would the Plum Guide be a good replacements?
10/5/2020
Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey Taylor, thanks for reaching out! We have not tested that combination before, but it might be a good option for you! Note that the heel unit must be rotated for each different riser position, so you could also consider the Dynafit Speed Radical heel for flipping risers.
10/7/2020
Answer from Taylor R
 
hi Teddy, thanks for the reply. The speed radical heel look like a good option. do I need to be concerned about the height on the new heel piece compared to the height of the old beast heel piece?

Question from Brian Harder
 
As I ponder a boot to replace my Scarpa RS, I need to consider the impact of a different BLS on my race ski binding position. I have Plum Race 150. Back in the day, Plum offered off-set pedestals to account for these subtle changes. Do you still have these?
10/9/2019
Answer from Jeff
 
Brian, we still have those and any other Plum parts you could ever need. Plum Parts

Question from Josh Marvel
 
I've had Plum 165 heel pieces for several years. Are the Plum 170 heel pieces identical? Specifically, is the pin height off of the ski identical?
8/30/2019
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Josh, the initial batch was identical, though starting in 18/19 they bumped up in height by 2mm to compensate for a toe redesign. The current height is on our list of pin heights.
8/31/2019
Answer from Joshua M
 
Oh interesting! Do you know if there is any way to identify them, other than measuring the pin heights? I'd like to find a pair from the original batch with the lower pins if that is possible.
9/1/2019
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Josh, there is a visible 2mm gap between the pedestal and the housing on the newest version. Looks like we only have 150s in stock with the lower pins.

Question from Peter B
 
I bought a pair of Yaks with brakes and when I received them I found out they didn't have a high heel riser! Do the replacements you offer have a riser? Based on the picture it looks like they do! And are they compatible with the breaks?
3/30/2019
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Peter, yes these are the regular Yak heels and not the "S". These are brakeless Yaks, but you can move the tower to a braked baseplate. It might be easier just to put some Guide Roofs on.

Question from thomas h
 
Thought I saw something about PLUM updating their bindings next year. Any insight on this? I'm looking at getting some but if they are releasing an updated version, well with descent updates. I will just hold of a year, if I can resist.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi thomas, they are release a couple new models, but the tried and true heels did not get an update.

Question from Yann Troutet
 
Seeing that the Plum 170 heel piece has 1) the pedestal and 2) the adjustment plate:

Is it possible to buy a separate extra pair of just the adjustment plates (the idea being that you could swap a single pair of pedestals between different pairs of skis)?
12/22/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Yann, unfortunately those are not sold separately. Further, it's not an easy task to swap the pedestals.

Question from Yann TROUTET
 
What is the recommended spacing for the heel piece (i.e. the space between the boot and the heel piece when in ski mode)?
12/4/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Yann! Should be a 4mm gap!

Answer from Yann T
 
Thanks Trace. In the meantime, I found your 'heel gap' page that gives a table for a bunch of them. All great timely info!

Stano at SkinTrack (used product regularly)
 
I have used both the Race 170 and 185 Plum heels and I can definitely recommend them. So far they have been very reliable, easy to adjust for different sizes, light, and at a good price. I like to mount them with now a beefy Dynafit Speed Radical toes as I like the security and reliability of those. Both times, this setup was mounted on ~80mm skis for ski mountaineering missions and long spring tours.

Question from Boris
 
Jbo,
Thanks. Do you think I'll be able to mount the Race 170 without any conflicts with the holes of the ION ?
Do you sell any heel shim plate to get a 10mm delta on the 170 ?
12/27/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Boris! It's tough to say but because there is so much boot sole length adjustment in both bindings I have a hard time thinking that you won't be able to dodge the existing holes in your ski. That being said, I don't have a heel shim available to raise the heel. The 150 heel on the Plum Adjustment Plate is a fair amount taller than the 170 heel, so you could always go that route to minimize the negative delta.

Question from Boris
 
Hi,

I have some G3 ION on my BMT 94, but I'd like to go lighter and simpler.
I set my DIN at 8.
Do you think it would be a good idea to replace the ION heel by a Plum 170 Heel ?
I've read elsewhere that you don't encourage people to swap the Rad 2 heel with a race one because the toe spring seems to be quite soft ?
But about the ION, I've read on Wildsnow that the toe springs are pretty strong.

So it should work ? Do you think it would release about the same as the normal Plum Race 170 toe + heel combo ?
Would the ramp angle be similar ?

Thanks !
12/25/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Boris, I'm sure that combo would hold you in, but you'd be at a negative ramp angle with that setup since the ION toes are high off the ski. I would guess higher release values but we haven't tested that combo. I'd just go with a complete Race 170!

Question from Koba
 
More question-i have Scarpa tx pro witn NTN buindings freeride..want replace hill support from NTn to Pulm heel pieces to use skies for downhill as ordinar alpine ski..im 56 and sometime im tired telemarking..can you reccomend something to solve problem?
8/7/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Koba! Thanks for reaching out! Yes and no, it depends on the exact model. Some of the TX Pros had tech fittings in the heel, some didn't. Check the heel for a tech fitting! If the fitting is there then you can lock your heels down, though you will likely want to pair the heels with some tech toes to make sure everything is working properly, in which case it would be cheaper to buy a complete binding. Also, make sure to get some front supports from Ski Trab to ensure that the bellows in the boot don't flex and give you a nasty pre-release.
