Take a look at this photo- Binding Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I downsized my boots... anyone here on the forum know if this would take it out of range on the adjustment?  Feels secure with the correct fwd pressure and seems to have plenty of track left for the screw. Rossi Axial 140's Appreciate any feedback. Thanks

If I recall correctly, the forward screw is supposed to sit flush with the back of the housing with the boot secure in the system.  If in doubt, take it to an authorized Rossignol dealer.

 

Also your binding release value may have changed due to your lower boot sole length.

Denny is right about getting them check out and about the possible DIN change.  I'm not specifically familiar with that binding, but from your pic it looks like you may need to close it a bit to increase the forward pressure (assuming that the line is suppose to be between the cut-out circled)

Forward pressure should be checked when the boot is locked into the binding.  I can't make out a boot in the photo; is it in the binding?

Thanks for the feedback I was referring to the track range which i think the hash mark is supposed to be in the cut out area but not sure. the fwd pressure checked out ok with my boots in, but when I took it home I noticed the hash mark a bit ahead of the cut out area. It shows the same with the boot in or out.

Looking at the picture it shows a adjustment range.  If your not in it there is risk to binding/skier for damage/injury.  I would remount.  Different bindings different specs.

These manuals should give you an idea of whats involved.

I think remounting is just bad advice unless he is downsizing several sizes. There should be enough adjustment range in the binding to pick up the slack. Remounting would place the new holes way too close to the old holes unless he buys a different binding.
