I feel I am getting the best glide when my weight is uncomfortably far back onto my heel so I'm thinking of shifting the bindings a little forward. I'd be very grateful for your input as there is almost nothing I can find about it online.
My skis are 1.93m long. The length in contact with the ground (when at rest and unloaded) is 1.75m.
The measurements in red regarding the bindings are taken at a loading less than my full weigth (my guess at how the ski is loaded while gliding.). I'll call the section that's not in contact with the ground the "Pocket" as I have no idea what it's actually called (in Finnish or English!)
Currently, the back of this Pocket is 595mm from the rear of the ski. From the back of the Pocket to the toe of my boot is 290mm, and from the toe to the front of the Pocket is 350mm.
If I move the binding position 150mm forward then these two numbers become 480mm from the back of the pocket to the toe, and from the toe to the front of the pocket 140mm.
The pocket is more or less constant, 620-640mm, with the difference within measuring errors. But the boot is less centred in the Pocket if the loading is moved forward. This presumably affects how they will grip as well as how they'll glide and balance. I guess that having the proportions so that the majority of the pocket is to the rear is a bit better for kicking than the other way around. Is this right?
I am imagining that moving the boot position forward might be better for me, but I don't want to make the skis resemble Swiss cheese before figuring out what altering the positioning does, so I'd really value some guidance.
(FWIW the skis are Salamon Active 8)
