Hi Joel, Dynafit sells the replacement toe pieces without the plates or screws. Those can be found at this link: parts.
Hey Robert, the XL will probably be a little big at your size. I'd say you would fit the large or even medium better, as these stretch fairly well and nobody likes loose fitting lycra :)
Hey Rob, it's possible if you aren't squeezed into the TLT (i.e. you didn't need to mold the toe for extra room). The PDG shell is about half a centimeter shorter on the interior than the TLT, but with the thinner liner its almost a wash. For reference, I had to size up in the TLT but wear my normal size in the PDG, so I have a half size difference as well (TLT 28 vs PDG 27.5).
Hi Scott. The Aliens run a bit short and also are slightly wider than the Spitfire/Sideral/Starlet. Most likely you would be a 28 in the Alien, which only comes in whole sizes. You might be able squeeze into the 27 with some punching, but it's nice to have room in the toes when striding.
Hi Jeff, yes, these do work with the RT binding as well. There is less travel of course, due to the elongated platform, but there is still enough for most boot quivers.
