Marker Free ten BSL adjustment range?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi

 

I have found a great end of the season deal for new powder skis for my kids. The skis comes with a Marker free ten. Now the boys grows, have different shoe sizes and might need to have new boots next year. Therfore I need to think a little bit on what BSL to mount. Does anybody know the Marker Free ten BSL adjustment range? Edit: To clarify Im looking for the +/- movement of the heel piece. I dont find it in the tech manual.

 

Thanks in advance

Emil

 

(Yes I know how to adjust DIN and forward pressure so we can skip that discussion)

Most ski shops will adjust the binding to the new boot for free or a minum charge.

IMO this is one thing better left to the experts. Besides it's better to have them adjusted by a insurable pro then making a trip to the hospital and having to pay a co-pay.

I guess that I was unclear. When ordering the skis I need to define a BSL if I want the binding mounted. Now the older have a BSL of 275mm and the younger 287mm. However there is likely that at least the older need to get new larger boots next year. Idealy also add some margin for future larger boots for the younger since he will probably innherit them. If the heel adjustment range is for example +/- 10mm I would ask them to mount on 283mm to have some margin. If it is smaller I will probably order without mounting and go to shop after buying new boots.

While I don't have exact BSL range measurement, it seems very limited.  I bought my son a pair of Marker Free Ten bindings last year and had the shop mount them.  He is growing like a weed and jumped from a 25.5 to a 27.5 (BSL 310mm) in one year, albeit with room to grow so hopefully they'll last through next season.  Anyway, the bindings do not have the range to accommodate and would likely not accommodate even a half size less.

Thanks for the reply. However for various reasons we ended up with squires instead with no problems.
