What's the difference between the titanium and steel heel springs? Can you provide any sort of guidance on DIN to heel piece crosswalk (obviously, these are not ISO DIN certified...just looking for some indication of which heel piece might be best for me), e.g. if I like skiing a DIN 10 binding, which heel piece might be best for me?
Any chance you'll be selling the version of the Dynafit Low Tech heel piece that includes brakes this year? The heel pieces for my existing Low Tech bindings (mounted on adjustment plates) are about shot and I'm keen to replace them with a version with brakes.
I developed my "kick the ski behind me to rip the skin from the tail" habit while skiing identical skis with Hagan ZR (branded as Movement Light Tech) bindings, which I was generally in the habit of leaving unlocked at all times. A shim under the lock plate seems like it would help the lock tension while skinning. Is there something pre-fabricated for this purpose, or could it be as simple as cutting out a strip of aluminum from a can and epoxying it under the lock plate? (If I was local, I'd just bring the...
I don't love the toe pieces. On the plus side, they do not build up ice in the springs and pre-release like other toe pieces.

Without putting the toe pieces in lock mode I'm unable to kick my skis behind me to remove my skins (without accidentally kicking off the ski entirely, that is). Even when in lock mode, I still regularly p...

The innovative Boa and upper cuff tightening systems provide for something that feels a bit like a four buckle design in a 2 lb boot. I have fifty days or so of skiing in these boots, and a couple days of ice climbing. No concerns or complaints about durability. Scarpa suggests that these boots are best for skis 85mm or less. I ski these on 84mm skis, but feel that they could comfortably power a bigger ski. A ski partner skis these boots ...
