I recently picked up this pair of Radicals 2nd hand for my daughter. As you can see, one heel has been replaced with a newer version (what vintage is the newer one?), but BOTH heel pieces rotate when in uphill mode when in step 1. Frustrating. Will the $30 Radical Antitwist Locks do the trick, as compared to the more expensive Speed Antitwist Base units? Does an in-store purchase of the Radical Antitwist Lock include installation?
Nice all-around mid-season ski. Two side notes: 1. The 183cm is actually 97mm wide, not 96mm as listed for the 176. I assume that the other lengths are correspondingly narrower. 2. The edges are narrower than most non-race skis, at 1.8mm I believe. I assume that is to save weight, but that may make this ski less durable.
Is there enough room to wear a thin liner glove inside these?
Francois, check out this article on how to soften up the U-spring. https://www.wildsnow.com/19750/modify-mount-dynafit-superlite-2/. I am an older (60+) skier) and so I also needed to back off the release value for safety. I just took a Dremel to my white Superlites heel springs.
Is the entire cuff made from carbon fiber (so it is difficult to punch or bend outwards)?
