binding adjustment advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I'm needing to fit a pair of size 10 boots on a pair of skis which have had size 9 on previously. Boots are Salomon mission and bindings Salomon 900s. Old but fine for the rock strewn slopes here in Scotland.

 

In the Salomon fitting manual it says to adjust the toe down until the boot sole almost touched 0.5mm the AFD. In my pic i think I have done this where the AFD plates rises up, however I see quite a lot of light where the boots plate rises. I'm not thinking that this is an issue but I just want to check.

 

I was also wondering about the amount of surface area of the underside of the toe actually touching the binding plate. It doesnt seem very much? Maybe this is the point as i've not used skis in the last ten years the tech has moved on no doubt. 

 

Any thoughts, links or advice would be much appreciated

 

thanks

IMO, Pay the shop to adjust the binding correctly. Think of it as a better option then paying the co-pay at the hospital.

Asking foe binding adjustment advice on April Fool's day... brave man.

 

Place a business card between the boot and the AFD, you should feel tension on the card when you pull it out from under the boot but it should come out. That's proper (enough) toe height.

Half expecting someone to tell me the bindings were on the wrong way round smile.gif
 

Good idea, i'll try out the card, should be 0.5mm

 

I'm not putting my legs in danger cos of my shoddy work. if i'm in doubt i'll take to a shop.
