Question from Spencer
 
What is the ramp on the Speed Turn?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Spencer, the actual ramp angle depends on the length of your boots. The pin height delta is about 15mm, the same as the Radical bindings.

I initially bought these bindings as an inexpensive entry into the tech binding scene. I went with these over the radicals because I usually espouse a "simpler is better" philosophy when it comes to gear. After a year on these I've enjoyed them enough to consider buying a second pair to mount on another pair of skis. These are just a simple, solid binding. They do what you expect them to do with no surprises. There's something to be said for a design that hasn't significantly changed in a while. I find that I can turn the heel with a ski tip most of the time, but if I'm not wearing a heavy pack it's usually quicker to turn them by hand. I am not an aggressive skier and have not taken any big falls on these so I can't particularly speak to their release characteristics, except that I have fairly moderate release values dialed in and have never pre-released. For reference these are mounted on BD Carbon Converts and skied with Spectres. The included leashes are a high quality bonus. If I could change one thing it would be a metal base plate and crampon slot under the toe. Seems like a weak spot, although I haven't had any issues so far. To sum it up, I've been very happy with the purchase and wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

Question from Matt
 
This looks like a nice price on these Dynafit speed turns....do you know what year they are from (2013/2014) and if older, are their any real differences to the 2015 or more recent models?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Matt, the remaining stock is from 2014/15. They are functionally equivalent to the 2015/16 version, known as the Speed Turn 2.0. For the new version, Dynafit changed the toe piece to the Radical design which is a 4-hole screw pattern without a base plate. This one has 5 screws in the toe, but it works the same.

Question from Mike (hasn't used product)
 
I would like to get a brake for this binding. It will be mounted on Elan Himalaya touring skis, 177s, 97mm under foot, I believe. What is your recommendation?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mike, the only brake that I know would work is the Kreuzspitze. It slides into the crampon slot. Check out the Radical ST for an integrated brake.

Question from Jack
 
Is it possible to change between heel riser levels with a ski pole or do you need to bend down and twist?

Thanks!

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jack, you can get some poles tips into the climbing aid hole and turn it at some angles, but it's more reliable to just turn this one by hand.

Question from Cameron
 
Thanks for answering that last question. Here's one more: do you know what the screw lengths/types are for this binding? I usually install inserts with machine screws so trying to figure out if they are totally different are similar to say the old TLT speed.

Thanks!

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Cameron, they are the standard 12.5mm Torx screws. Same length as the old TLT Speed. The Speed Radical fasteners will work.

Question from Cameron
 
Wondering if the Speed Turn shares the same mounting pattern as a 2010 Vertical ST?

Hi Cameron, it sure does. Check out our table of mounting patterns for more info.

The speed turns are an awesome binding. I was originally hesitant to go to the radical due to the heel, but have found the speed turn heel to perform amazingly well. Just wish someone sold a radical toe with speed turn heel, as swapping the radical toe makes for the ultimate BC binding on almost all planks.

this year's model of speed turns provide exactly what you're looking for. I'm just wondering though what the difference in toe pieces is? Which, if any, of these models has the Power towers? and is that even significant?
