Remounting bindings

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Well I got a new binding mounted on a new ski 2 weeks ago but today I got new boots that are 1 size smaller and now they no longer fit. The old boots were 29 and 339mm and the new ones are 27.5 and 324mm. I tried to adjust the binding but it's like 2mm too short to hold the boot properly.

Do I gotta get the binding remounted and if so, do they gotta move the front and back part of the binding or can they just do the back or will that throw off the ski center? Bindings are Look PX 15 and ski is the Gotama.

Thanks

You can choose to move just the toe or just the heel or both. If you do the heel, you will be a bit forward, the toe, a bit back and both, just where you were...but the holes will be very close to what the old holes were. I would suggest moving just the heel and the ski could be a bit more nimble. Not to be smart but if you were already skiing a boot 2 sizes too big, I don't think that this slight variance will be too critical.

Thanks for the reply. I am just worried if the toe and heel aren't moved together, I will be off center. I am also worried about mount holes and I got new vs used because I didn't want to deal with mount holes and I never expected to buy boots until next year but I sat with a boot fitter today with my old boots and he really recommended I get new boots.

Yes I know 1-2 sizes was bad but I had no clue as I just go out and ski and never worried about the technical part. I keep reading on here to visit a boot fitter so I decided to go today with my old boots to compare with new boots. Old boots were far too big and a 60 flex which is only for beginners as I am sure you know. He put me in a 100 flex boot and spent 4 hours with me customizing the boot to where it felt good for me and out I walked with them. Once he showed me all the extra space I had in my old boots, I decided to go with new boots. I just wanted to give some background on why I decided to get new boots after i got my bindings mounted.

I agree with Phil, best bet would be just to move the heel forward, as a result you'll gain some maneuverability with the ski.

Yes that would be great but I will lose float no? The skis are 194cm long and they were mounted centered on the ski
