Question from Eric
 
Hi there, I'm looking at purchasing a 6.4mm shim to put under a Dynafit Speed Radical binding toe piece that's currently mounted on quiver killer inserts. Can you tell me what screws I would need in order to make this happen? Thanks!

Hey Eric, thanks for reaching out! That'd be a 16mm Flat Head screw with an M5 thread! Let me know if you'd like to proceed and I can probably get you set up with an order!

Question from Duretteski
 
Will the classic shim work with the Fritschi Evo toe? Is an extension required?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Duretteski, unfortunately the classic shim doesn't work with the Vipec. Rumor has it there is a Vipec shim coming available though.

Question from Jon B
 
Hello,

I have a pair of Plum Guide bindings with a Scarpa 27.5 Maestral boots. I want a neutral (flat) or nearly neutral (flat) ramp angel.
Here are my questions:
1. Will the 6.4mm Classic shim get me a neutral (flat) ramp angle (with 19mm screws)? If not, what should I stack on top of it?
2. What screw should I order if I stack on top of the 6.4mm?
3. Will the crampons work with a Classic 6.4mm shim? Will they work if I need to stack higher?

Thanks very much! I can't believe it me took this long to figure out why I disliked skiing my AT set-up vs my on area set-up.

Cheers,

Jon

Hi Jon,

The 6.4mm Classic shims will get you closer but not quite flat. You'll certainly feel the difference. You'll need 21.5mm screws for those. We generally advise against stacking multiple plates on top of each other. You could order the Plum Guide Rental toe plate to get even closer as they are 9.5mm thick. Crampons work with the shims, and would also work if you're adjusted near the rear of the rental plates.

Question from toddball
 
I bought some 6.4mm shims for Dynafit Radical ST 2.0s, which I currently have mounted with Binding Freedom inserts. Any ideas for where to get longer screws for those? Doesn't look like BF makes 20mm Pozi Smallhead screws, which is what I would need (I think) if I bought from them.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Toddball, any 20mm x M5 machine screw should do, though you will have to shrink the head of the screw in order to make this work (that is the reason the cost of the Radical 2.0 fastener kits are more expensive). I do have a few 20mm flat head Torx screws that I can sell you but it would still involve shrinking the diameter of the heads. Let me know what works for you, I can get that organized if you'd like.

Question from Rich S
 
can you please advise which shim to lift a speed turn 2.0 toe up, and which screws? mounting to a Hannibal 94. I'm thinking 4.7mm "classic" is the one i want. what size screws do I need to accommodate for the additional ~5mm of shim? do the screws need to be filed down?
3/8/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Rich, yes you need the Classic shims. The thickness can be a personal preference, but easiest is the 6.4mm which uses the 19mm screws as is. Otherwise you need to shorten some screws.

Question from Cim
 
Do you have any shims that fit G3 IONs? Since the screw pattern is different from Dynafit bindings, I assume those shims won't work. Would it be possible to drill extra holes in the B&D Radical Shims to fit the ION screws? If so, which model will be best?
3/1/2017
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Cim,

The official answer is no, we do not have any shims for the G3 Ion.

I did take the time to size up some of the B&D shims to see if your idea of drilling extra holes would work. It appears that the Radical FT/ST shim could work, but I can't say for how long as it is not intended to be used with that binding. Drilling extra holes in the shim may cause it to crack or fail in some other manner. If you decide to try it, keep in mind that you'll need to replace the screws with longer ones as well.

Question from Bob
 
What size screws would I need to use the 3.2 mm classic shim on some Speed Radiacals?

Thanks,
Bob
2/11/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Bob, depends on your ski of course, but likely around 16mm.
2/11/2017
Answer from Robert P
 
Hmm. Hard to find a 16mm. I suppose I could grind the 19mm's down. Maybe I'll try the 4.7mm shims. Then there will be less to shorten.

What size are the stock screws on the Speed Rad toes? I'd measure some but I'm not sure how they are measured.
2/13/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Robert, they are ~12.5mm. Flat heads are measured full length, end to end. The 6.4s would likely obviate shortening.

Question from Dan
 
Hi, I have been skiing some of the tlt comforts for about 10 years and just bought a pair of speed radicals to go on some new skis. I have loved my old dynafits so I'm looking for whichever shim will feel the same as my old comforts. I have a 25 shell which means more ramp but my current Dynafits are unmodified and I have been happy with them. I don't really plan on using these skins inbounds because of the lack of break and have other skis for in bounds riding

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Dan, you could measure your pins and compare them with these to calculate the difference. Otherwise, just get the 6.4s!

Are all toes shims sold in pairs?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Seth. Yeah, they are sold in pairs. What are you looking for though? I have a single Classic 4.7mm shim sitting by my desk and if it's what you need I'd be happy to sell it to you individually.
