Bindings with auto toe height adjustment + cold weather = problem?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 

Anyone having a problem clicking brand new (not scuffed) boots into the toepiece of a binding at 5F or below?

 

 

 

(Particularly interested in Tyrolia and Marker owner responses).

Apparently, no one is.

Snow and ice can stick to the bottom of boots when it is really cold.  That can cause a problem, but never felt it was the binding's fault with the exception of the brass Spademan butterfly plates screwed to the boot soles that used to be required for that particular brand.

This is with completely clean boots (scraped clean of snow and double-checked).   

 

The toe lug simply does not want to go into the toepiece at any reasonable, (i.e humanly achievable with a foot in the boot) insertion angle.

 

It NEVER happens once the temps reach 15F and above.

Nope never! Lots of Tyrolia's now MOJO 15 and Freeflex 17d and skied markers for years and years!

I would blame it on user error  - except it was more than one user, on their own (not rental, not demo) gear.   

 

Lange, Roxy and Fischer-branded boots.    ???

I haven't been through as much equipment as a lot of people yet, but have never had a problem with my Garmont or Head boots in the few pair of Tyrolia bindings I've got, and I ski in those temps pretty regularly..
