Question from Brendan
 
How does one go about mounting these?
Is there a paper template available?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Brendan, the plates come with template stickers. Stick 'em on where you want 'em, verify the centering, punch, and drill through.

Hi Bryan, yes, the price is for a pair (meaning one plate for each ski).

Question from Chris D
 
Considering using the heel piece to accommodate an Alien and Maestrale RS boot on a pair of Seven Summit Superlight's. Does this seem reasonable? Or does it make more sense just to mount for the Alien and forgot the option for a stiffer boot? Thanks!

Answer from jbo
 
Adding the plates is reasonable for using two boots. Hard to say which boot you will like better, but I suspect you won't be using the RS's much with them :)

Question from Chris
 
I am looking at these to accomodate my race (Alien) and all-around (Maestrale) boot with a difference of 18mm in BSL. Is it possible just to install one of these plates, if only that much range is needed? Wondering about the difference in height in heel vs. toe piece in this situation. Thanks!

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Chris, yes, the heels are the default option for some adjustability and can accommodate a 30mm range. They add 4mm to the heel pin height which isn't too significant.

Question from Kevin C
 
My having a great deal of trouble finding replacement bolts for the slider rails on these. A couple of mine got overtightened and then the torx stripped. So far I haven't come across any alternatives- the bolt head profile needs to be small to seat into the heel piece of Speed Superlites. Are you bringing in replacements or could you point me to another source? Sad state of affairs at the moment.

Answer from jbo
 
I feel you Kevin, I've been to countless hardware stores to no avail. I grind the heads down on a standard M6.

Question from Ivan (hasn't used product)
 
Is this plate compatible with Dynafit Low Tech Lite?
12/26/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Ivan, technically no. You could get the toe on the front plate if you didn't use the 5th screw hole; the four-hole heel pattern won't match the tripod shape for these though.

Question from Nik P.
 
What are the width dimensions of these plates? I was thinking of using them for the purpose of having plates between the ski top surface and the binding itself, since I like a bit elevated position. Are there similar plates for the Plum Race 185?
11/25/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Nik, the rear plates are 38mm wide, 94mm long, and 4mm thick. They aren't useful for correcting a negative ramp angle while skinning since they bindings they fit don't have a flat mode, but they do provide additional ramp while skiing. The Plum 185 has adjustment plates built in and the opposite is true: negative skinning correction but no additional skiing ramp since the tower height is shortened (you could stack another Plum adjustment plate under the 185, but might as well just get the 145 and adjustment plates for less weight).
11/25/2014
Answer from Nik P
 
Thanks JBO. It's a good idea, but for me to understand: are you suggesting to use Race 185's adjustment plates on 145's, or are there any others available. because, as i have gathered from the Dynafit adj. plates description, they are not compatible with Plums
11/25/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hey Nik, sorry for the lack of linking in my reply. The Plum adjustment plates are here. They are compatible with the 135/145 and are the same plates found on the 185.

Question from Ray H
 
I want to put an adjustment plate on my Speed Superlites that apparently have a ramp angle of about 3mm. and am wondering if I should use a front or a back plate. Would a front plate reduce my ramp angle to 0, and if so how would this affect climbing. Alternately, how much would a back plate increase ramp angle and would it be too much for good downhill performance. Opinions for the overall best setup appreciated. Thanks in advance.
11/12/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Ray, the plates are 4mm thick so you'd be at -1.5mm with a front plate, and +6.5 with a rear. I think the skiing is fine at +6.5 but if you want to get to zero you can add 6.4mm classic shims which would do just that.

Question from Riff (hasn't used product)
 
Question: does the plate mount on the same pattern as an adjustable heel like a Speed Radical? Can I re-use the holes from my heels for the plates? I have inserts in my skis for the regular pattern and I'm curious if I can bolt up the plates to these, or need to re-drill. I want to upgrade from old FTs, and the Speed Superlight looks great, but I want to match two BSLs.
Thanks.
9/25/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Riff, unfortunately the plates don't share a hole pattern with the Radical heels. Further, being the same length, they would need to be offset fore or aft from your inserts by a safe amount. A couple options for reusing your inserts are: 1) Kreuzspitze 14mm plates with SCTT or Plum 145 heels & 2) Speed Radical or Speed Turn heels.

The plates are wicked! I used them for my race binding mounted on Nanga Parbat skis to keep them light and to accommodate for both my touring and racing boots. Anyways, benefits are pretty self explanatory :)
