Look PX 12 Toe

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi - just picked up some Dynastar Mythic Riders with PX 12s on them.  The forward pressure is right on, but the bindings seem oddly far back on the ski. It's probably my imagination, but it can't hurt to ask;  is there a rule of thumb as to where the center of the boot should be vis-a-vis the ski?  If these are in fact too far back, is the toe adjustable? 

 

I am 6' and 185 pounds.  Been skiing all my life but as that stretch of time gets longer I am skiing less agressively.  smile.gif  Thanks in advance.

There should be a center mark on the ski for a point of reference. It is either a marking on the sidewall or a slight ridge in the topskin.

Perfect.  There is a raised ridge - would never have noticed it.  My boot is alomst exactly 12" long.  The half way point on the ski hits 5" from the front and 7 inches to the back so I guess I go back to the "is the toe adjustable" question.  Thanks for answering my earlier post.

There is also a little raised line or bump on the bottom of your boot (frequently under the arch) that marks the center point of the boot. Most folks would say the raised lines on your skis and boots should match. That's why you give the shop your boots so they can mount the bindings accurately.

Thanks - if you buy the skis with bindings mounted you have to do the best you can... beercheer.gif

But "the best you can" may involve paying someone to look at them.

 

That said, are these the PX12 Fluid, PX12 Demo or plain ol' PX12?  The Fluid and Demo toes will be adjustable without redrilling.  If you can't tell, post up a picture of the toe and the whole binding, paying particular attention to anything that connects the toe and heel.

Steve Turner was a big help.  The raised bump on my boot sole is right on the center mark of the ski.  I am good to go, and can't wait to try these out.  Thanks to him for his guidance.
