Hi Hugo, we don't have any of those kingpin toes, but we do have new Marker Alpinist toes available. Both toes have the same hole pattern, and Marker actually started shipping all Kingpins with Alpinist toes for their better performance and durability over the original orange Kingpin toes.
Hi Thomas, it should come with a 1 deg base edge and 2 deg side edge

Hi Nico, The Freedom Outside Cant Screw is what you need to fix that... mostly.

If you don't have access to a tap, you can replace the nut with the Canting Nut that is listed on this page, which will also allow you to fully tighten the screw.
