I plan to mount a pair of 2015 TLT Speed Radicals to Solomon MTN Explorer 95 skis. My boots are Scarpa TX Pro. I believe the B & D Classic 6.4 mm shims are the ones I should use with longer 19 mm screws, but want to confirm before ordering. I also want to purchase a pair of crampons. Are the Dynafit 100 mm the best to use?
Hi Jim, yes you need the Classic version for those, and 6.4mm is a good height in my opinion. 19mm screws work perfectly with those. Aside from color, the 100mm crampons would be ideal for the MTN Explore.
I know you have probably answered this in a previous post but I just wanted to clarify. I want to raise the toe pieces on my speed radicals and was a little confused from a previous answer, so my question was can you tell me which item I need and also do you have the proper screws available to compensate for the added thickness. Thank You.
Hi Travis, flat would be 6.4mm + 3.2mm Classic shims, mounted with 28mm screws. I haven't tried that particular combo, but it would avoid the need to shorten the screws for the 6.4 shim by itself (25mm ski screws are hard to come by).
After reading articles about ramp angle/toe-heel delta, I got some 6.4mm shims to raise the toepiece on a Dynafit Vertical ST binding. Took the binding from a +16mm to about +9.6mm for ramp delta. I'm pretty convinced this has made my downhill skiing much less tiring. Less tired = more vertical! Who would have thought this small change could affect my fun factor. Definitely worth the time, money, and slight weight penalty.
I ordered the B&D 4.7 classic shims for a pair of verticals but forgot the extensions. If I order the extensions and choose Qty:1, will that be a pair or 4 pieces total? Just want to make sure...
So I was going to buy the 6.4 mm for my speed radical dynafit toepieces. This will work correct?
Second question: What length screws should I get? Do the toepieces screw into the shims and then different screws into the ski?
Hi George, 6.4 is a good thickness but note you want the "Classic" version for the Speed Radicals, versus the "Radical" version which is for the Radical ST/FT. The 19mm screws are perfect for going through the binding, shim holes, and into your ski. You need one screw per binding hole (4 per Speed Rad toe).
