Elan Apex Bindings Position

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I’ve recently bought Elan Apex 2012 skis - partially because of great reviews they received here.

Now I need to decide whether to mount them on the mark or a little back.

I read that many preferred either 1 cm or 2 cm back but I think it was on pre 2012 models.

Is 2012 model the same as 2011 (rocker, mount point)?

I tried BoF method and landed almost 1cm back but I’m not sure how accurate I was with my measure tape.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I'd contact Dawgcatching about this, try a PM. Also recall that Northern Ski Works carries a bunch of Elans, so they may be able to help you. I had 2010's, liked them 2 cm back, recall that my BoF was also behind factory line by roughly a cm (which means their line is waaay in front of typical mid-boot line). IMO, the "resort rocker" ain't much, more like mild early rise, and you wouldn't go forward of former line for a rockered change. Unless of course, the factory changed the basics. Haven't heard that, but can't say.  th_dunno-1[1].gif

Dawgcatching told me he does 1.5cm behind the mark.  I have a pair and that's where I plan to have them mounted with railflex bindings.

Thank you.

 

To clarify: my ski boot midsole mark (not BoF) was 1cm behind factory line using BoF method.

I was expecting to be father back – this made me suspicious that maybe they change something in 2012 model.

I wouldn’t worry too much if I was going to use moveable bindings like Tyrolia Railflex but I want to mount Marker Baron. Maybe I’m overthinking it but it happened to me twice already in the past that I asked for a remount not being happy with my skis.
