Marker toe pressure setting

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Bought two new (to us) pair of skis but did not have boots with me so shop set the DIN and sole to length stamped on the boot. I've worked with a number of bindings and thought I could handle the pressure setting but the indicator on either of these two bindings isn't obvious to me at first glance. Both are Marker bindings but completely different toe and heel. One is an IQ Twin Traction and the other is a Contact Control ST. Can anyone give me a brief explantion of how to set each of these?

Is "toe pressure" the same as forward pressure? English is not my first language, but of things you might want to adjust that seems a logical choice... I'm not familiar with the models but usually it is said that with Markers the forward pressure adjustment screw needs to be in flush with the housing. There is no separate indicator.

Yes I think Forward Pressure is the corect term. I've asked two people, one a shop tech and one a guy who has maintained his own equipment for many years. One said FLUSH the other said to the FIRST MARK for low DIN settings like mine. An old post from Phil Pug said FIRST MARK. Now I have two votes for FLUSH and two fo FIRST MARK. Who want so break the tie?

My Marker Comp 16s are set with the screw flush. (my DIN setting is 8.5)

When in doubt, go flush
