Torque and forward lean question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have the rossignol 74. Does the setting indicator at the back of the rear binding for forward pressure also indicate the "forward lean" number on the DIN chart?

How is the twist set by the shop technician and how is it measured? I saw some videos where they just pull it off to the side and say that's what it's supposed to do ?

The weight calculation should be done with all clothes and boots or just the bare body weight ?

1) Yes.

2) With a 'VSSE Tester' which is a hand operated torque tester or with a computer controlled torque tester like the Wintersteiger Skitronic Plus, it is measured in Nm of force when tested. The DIN number is the starting point, you then test the ski and customer's boot together as a system to make sure that they work together as expected. Part of the binding adjustment process is to inspect the boot to make sure that it is still within the DIN standard for wear.

Thanks for the picture and the answer.

 

Will Sun & Ski have this if I go to get the tuning done on my new boot and ski, OR should I just wait till I go for a trip and get it done at the resort in a specilized shop where there are chances of having this tester.
