Head ski binding question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I just acquired a pair of head Liquidmetal GS skis in 183. The skis do not have bindings, and they have a plate/riser that states HEAD OR TYROLIA BINDINGS ONLY marked on it.I think this is BS. What say you?  thanks.

Out of curiosity, why wouldn't you want to put a Head or Tyrolia on them?

If there are predrilled holes, you will be limited to a Head/Fischer/Elan ie Tyrolia binding. If it is a flat plate with NO holes drilled, any binding will work.

Not that I'd want to but couldn't OP just take the plate off and mount something else flat?  Otherwise, if the plate is like this one it really would be unwise to try to use a binding with a slightly different footprint.

Ugh, looks like the photo tags button is stuck again.. Off to bug thread to bump that thread.

The OP tells us that his skis are GS and almost all Head race skis come with a riser plate. Why ski a GS ski flat? Why remove it when a Head/Tyrolia binding will fit perfect?

He meant mount a different flat plate on the ski that would accept another brand binding.

 

I must repeat an earlier question, what is wrong with a Head/Tyrolia race binding?

 

I have multiple pairs and am very happy with them!

No I actually did say it is possible to remove the plate and mount flat.  I wouldn't but it can be done.

Why confuse the issue. No need to remove the plate, one of the best race bindings and bindings for this ski is a Tyrolia race binding.

Don't confuse what you can do with what you should do. Can you remove the plates and put another plate and another binding on? Yes. Should you remove the plate and put another plate and binding on? NO.
