Seeking Head or Tyrolia rep about plates

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I cannot find any web site or online store that retails Tyrolia plates. Tyrolia's website shows them, but the last one's I've seen for purchase were a year ago on DWS. Few years before that, Level 9 had a bunch of the 9 mm carving plates. Given that remarkably few stores in the United States actually retail Tyrolia/Head bindings, and if they do it's the bindings, period, plate mounting - and sometimes bindings too - is dependent on some aging shop guy's collection of old templates. Any ideas how someone in 2013 purchases the plates and gets them set up? 

 

If I sound mystified, I am. It's a big company. Does it have a marketing division? Does North America count?

Any dealer can special order from the Race Dept. Just have to ask.

^^^^ OK, but weirdly, not many stores in my region even sell Heads or Fischers, and none stock the bindings. If you haven't noticed, the N.A. retail world is run by K2/Volkl/Marker, Rossignol/Look, and Atomic/Salomon. Canada seems to get a few Head reps peering their way. We have only earned their distain, apparently. So are you saying that a store that sells say Head race carvers, period, will be able to order any Tyrolia/Head/Fischer product?

I have to agree.  Trying to find Tyrolia/Head plates is generally an act of futility.

Levle 9 has railflex II plate right now.

I've got a set of plates drilled for ff14s laying around if you're interested.

 

RAMP sells plates with skis but if you get in touch with them they might be able to hook you up with just a plate.

Thanks for various info. Looking for the light carving plates like these http://www.tyrolia.com/index.php?id=299 or these http://www.tyrolia.com/index.php?id=230 for use with Mojo's, or FF. Actually have several RF bases around myself.

I have a new set of Tyrolia/Head 9mm SLR plates in my basement that I don't need. Shoot me a PM if you'd like them. Not sure what I paid for them, but doubt it was more than $30 shipped.

Mounting the plate uses the same jig as the bindings.  You just set it down to the smallest size. 265 iirc

And if you don't have a jig handy, you can easily mount this type of plate freehand using the plate as your jig.
