My bindings are pre-releasing when climbing. The toes don't lock out because the locking lever does not engage the binding fully. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm going to "shim" them somehow, because as they are now, they are dangerous when skinning in icy conditions.

Hi Derek, there is definitely something wrong as the lever isn't close to touching. It works fine with a new binding and TLT7. Hard to diagnose from here, but note we do have larger "rollers" available as well as past success with shimming the striker plate.

I'm on season three on these bindings and love them, overall. But this year the toe pins are showing quite a bit of wear after three modest seasons. I am walking out of them now on climbs, especially when side hilling. The toe lock mechanism has never locked or engaged well.

Anyone else had toe pin wear problems? Seems like the old Dynafit comforts lasted forever. Perhaps a weaker alloy on this binding?

Hi Derek, we haven't seen issues with the toe pins. Any chance you could e-mail us a photo?

Here you go. Notice the wear on the pins. Makes me wonder if this is why I now need a shim to keep the lockout mechanism working.

Hi Derek, that is an unusual amount of wear after only a few seasons. We're working on getting you some new wings. Let us know how many you'd need.

Question from Toby W
 
Regarding setting up a leash from the heel, I would love to hear some specifics on the leash system. I tried a very simple system with some elastic type cord (will break if needed to) but it did not work out very well as the whole thing ended up under my boot when in touring mode, going uphill. Works fine going downhill. I have always used a toe attachment which does not have this problem. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Toby! Sorry for the slow reply! We've found that, outside of mounting the leash on the heel fork, going underneath the crampon receptor is the best way to do attach a leash. Check out the artwork I've attached. If you are using crampons then the heel fork is your best bet.

Question from Chris
 
Howdy,
Just bought the Atomic skis with the Kr. SCTT bindings; arrived in good shape.
I've never used tech bindings before, don't know anyone who has and the instructions say very little (well...nothing) about the heel piece. I figured out the rotation but I'm wondering....for uphilling am I supposed to simply drop the pin protector over the heel pins OR rotate the whole thing 180 degrees and go heel down on the U shaped end of the pins? Also, after skiing on them for a while, if I decided I need the second riser position can I get that separately and is it easy to install?
Thanks,
CR

Hi Chris, yes, you just drop the flap over the pins to go uphill. 180 degrees would be for the optional high riser, which is very easy to install, it just bolts onto the U spring. Give us a ring if you want further instruction, thanks!

Question from Shawn
 
Looking to buy a set of these bindings but having trouble putting the order together.

Bindings for a. Set qty 1
Crampon attachments qty 1
Heel risers qty 1 (do I need to buy steel forks qty 1?)
Torx mounting screws qty 16
Torx adjustment plate 14mm qty 2
Torx adjustment plate bolt qty 2
Torx adjustment plate nut qty 2

Does this right? Please advise.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Shawn, the bindings come with mounting screws and the plates come with all the adjustment hardware. You just need 1x bindings, and optionally 1x crampon attachments and 1x heel risers. Enjoy.

Question from Shawn
 
Looks like a leash attaches best to the back forks.
Where do you attach a leash if you install heel risers?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Shawn, the heel risers have holes in the sides through which you can thread a cord.

Question from joe j
 
If a ski tech only had a dynafit jig could the 18mm heel plate pattern and the toe holes be accurately drilled? Thanks
6/9/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Joe, the toe holes match the older Vertical and Classic series bindings so do match up with some Dynafit jigs. The 18mm plate holes do not match any Dynafit jigs, but the 14mm plates do.

I've used these 2 seasons now on a pair of rando race skis used primarily for speed touring. They are beautifully made and work flawlessly. The fixed release "setting" has been ideal for me - in touring and a couple days of resort use they've never pre-released (including skiing moguls), but have released on a couple of occasions when needed, including a forward ejection when my skis came to a sudden stop and my body kept going. I am 6'2" and 165 lbs.
The option of a flat setting is nice although seldom needed. I also bought the extra height risers but have never used them (I also tend not to use the high position much on standard touring bindings).
I installed them with the 18mm adjustment plates in the rear, which is great for multiple boots and still results in a nice low ramp angle. The connection between binding and plate has never loosened on me.
I would buy them again.

Question from D Berdinka
 
Great sounding reviews. Is this an appropriate binding for touring/ski mountaineering for the non-svelte? At a 175 lbs (and every so slowly gaining each year) I significantly outweigh some of the skiers above. A very rough idea of it's approximate release values might be useful. Thanks so much.

Answer from Jessie T
 
Hi D, we don't publish the release values since they vary depending on your boot sole length and other factors. We can recommend something for you if you put your data in our binding finder. Thanks.

Does anybody have a suggestion on how and where to use a ski leash on this binding paired with a Scarpa Alien ski boot? I have as of yet to arrive at a satisfactory solution.

Hi John, you can hook the heel fork with a leash.
