As a recent Dynafit convert (ex Fritschi) I have now mounted a brand new set of Radical ST to my K2 Wayback's that I will use mostly for touring. I am dialing in the final setup and had a few questions that I hope the more experienced Dynafit group could help me out with.
First is the spacing of the heel piece to the boot. I have read this should be 4mm (but still need to have this confirmed). I do not have the spacer that may have come with the bindings (might have discarded it as packaging!), so I am using a 4mm drill bit to make this crucial adjustment. I am not 100% clear at where the 4mm should be measured, and attach a photo which shows 2 possible locations that would give different results. I think it should be measured below the pins, but would not want to wrong about this!
The second thing I would like to confirm is that my understanding of the DIN settings is correct and I attach a photo below showing how they are now set:
Might be a bit hard to see this real clearly but would appreciate knowing of any obvious mistake(s) on my part.
Skiing back country on my Frtischi's I would set the toes at DIN 8 and heels at DIN 9, and slowly worked up to these settings after numerous binding releases at lower settings. I read on Wildsnow.com that Lou found that with his Dynafit setup he could leave the lateral release quite low but had to increase the vertical release to get a skiable setup. Was wondering what other may have experienced with their setup and of course any advice would be much appreciated.
