Question from Damian
 
Hi,
I’ve got Kreuzspitze GTs mounted for a boot I’ve sold, and replaced with one with about 7mm more sole length, no longer fitting the current mount. What would be the best heel plate to buy in this instance: the KR hole adjuster, or one of the variable heel plates? It would be useful to have some future play for other boots. Thanks

Hey Damian! I would go for the 40mm adjustment plate. That'll give you a lot of flexibility in the future and potentially help resale value if that's a possibility.

Question from Evan
 
I am wanting to mount some speedfits to adjustment plates to accommodate my wife's minus 4 to 5 size hoofs. For toes, I have sourced a B&D radical compatible shift plate, but speedfit heels are not so rad, and I am having some trouble sourcing an adjustable speedfit heel plate. I believe 28mm is the speedfit heel hole width, which matches the LTR 2.0 width. This page description cites "old low tech race" but the hole pattern chart lists two LTR's. Which hole width does this LTR heel plate fit? https://skimo.co/tech-binding-hole-patterns

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Evan. Unfortunately, I think you're out of luck on the heel adjustment plate for that binding as it already sits on a small track that gives about 10mm of total adjustment range and the toe shift plate is probably your best bet. In theory mounting the heel on one of those adjustment plates could work because you are correct, the hole pattern of the heel is the same width as the LTR 2.0. The issue I'm seeing with mounting the heels onto any of those adjustment tracks is the length of the hole pattern would likely overshoot the entire length of the adjustment track or at least eat up an overwhelming majority of the length which wouldn't do a whole lot except for be an expensive way to add weight and raise your binding delta.

One of the first ever LTR bindings (before the times of SkimoCo) had a 4-hole pattern which the Kreuzspitze LTR Heel Adjuster is compatible with, but pretty much none of the existing bindings on the market will drop into that plate.

Question from Evan
 
What Dynafit hole patterns are considered to be "classic"? Can I mount Dynafit FT 12 and/or speed radicals, via toe shift and 40mm fast plates? Are toe and heel plates of the same thickness? Can toe shift be combined with a B&D toe shim to minimize delta?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Evan! Potentially! There are about 5 bindings that have the designation "FT 12" so it's important to know which generation of binding you are aiming for. The "classic" toe pieces are the 5-Hole patterns like the Vertical, Comfort, TLT Speed, etc. The hole pattern on Dynafit heel pieces hasn't changed much up until just recently, but you definitely can't mount the heels to the fast plate though as those are designed for the Kreuzspitze heels.

Question from mbillie1
 
Hi, do the 14mm heel plates share the same hole pattern with the old red Dynafit Speed Superlite demos? (the adjustable track heel pieces). If so, is it possible to reuse the same holes, maybe with QK inserts or something, that had originally been mounted for SSL1.0 Demos?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi mbillie1, yes that is the same pattern. You can likely reuse your holes, depending on the condition of your ski.

Question from Boris
 
Can you confirm that the K18 plate has exactly the same hole pattern as the G3 ION heel, so I'll be able to mount it while reusing some old g3 ion holes ? And that I'll be able to mount some Plum 150 heel on top of it ?

Other question, do you think it would be safe to mount a plum race toe just in the middle of some G3 ION toe holes ?
There should be something about 7mm between the old holes and new holes I guess ? What do you think ?
1/31/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Boris, I can confirm that the K18 hole pattern matches the heel of the G3 Ion and that you will be able to mount a Plum 150 heel on it.

I can't make a definitive statement about mounting the toe without looking at the ski and lining a jig up on the holes. It's pretty likely that you can find a way to get the toe mounted safely, but you may encounter some struggle keeping the heelpiece in the old holes while realigning the toes. Only one way to find out, give it a shot.

Answer from AllanF
 
I don’t have a Plum Race toe to look at but if the tech pins are centered in the mounting hole pattern you should be able to align the holes between the Ion toe holes. If you look st the photo I attached here you can see the two hole patterns on the adapter plate in the foreground that I made to do this same swap with my Kreuzspitze toe.

Kreuzspitze K-18 tension plate and KR tension plate. I bought the K-18 because I found that the screw hole pattern is the same as the Ion heel screw hole pattern. I'm using it to adapt my SCTT heels to the Ion drilled inserts in my skis. I stacked the KR plate on top of the K-18 for greater adjustment so I can ski my Mtn Labs and my Procline Carbon on the same mount.
I then made a 10mm Delrin adapter plate for the toe to mount my SCTTT toe to the Ion drilled inserts in the 2 pairs of Scott Superguide skis. The plates are 54g and have inserts for the binding screws. The stacked plates work perfectly and give me a zero ramp angle combined with my adapter plates.

Question from Mike
 
I confuse. If bindings have too much ramp, why would you lift the heel? Would that not increase the ramp?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mike, these let you adjust the heel pieces to boots of differing length. The ramp increase is mild in comparison to the added feature.

Question from Brian
 
Do the weights for the plates include the weight of the screws? (like the Hagan plate weights do?)

Hey Brian The weights of the plates are for the plate only.

Question from Peter
 
Could you please tell me what the width of the screw attachment (in mm) to the ski for the Kreuzspitze Universal 25mm and Toe Shift plates are? I contacted Kreuzspitze directly for this information but they have not answered. Thanks much...
5/26/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Peter. The Universal 25mm plate rail dimensions are 25x62 and the Toe Shift plate "rails" are 30x27 with holes every 13.5mm. More info here.
