Fischer Racetrack System Forward Pressure?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I picked up a new pair of Worldcup RCs and I'm impressed with the race track mounting system, it took about 3 minutes to set up. I just wasn't sure about the forward pressure so I took a photo of the binding heel piece with my boot in the binding. Does this look right?

Not like I am an expert with that binding, but give a photo of the same WITHOUT the boot now.  Is that where the mark is supposed to be when the boot is in?  If so your good.

I have Fischer FR12 and Tyrolia FR 17+.  That picture looks a little strange to me not at all what I'm used to seeing.  What binding are you using exactly?  And can you take a picture of it from the rear looking down but angled slightly forward?    Also recommend you hunt up a Fischer/Tyrolia manual.

Binding is a Z13 Racetrack...Initially when I looked at the pictorial guide that came with the skis I was a little confused in what they were trying to communicate but I think when the boot is in you should be within range of the various markers on the metal piece. If you are forward of the marked range or you cannot see the marked range I think you need to click the bindings inward or outward. Does this sound right? There's not text with the install guide. 1st photo is with the boot in and 2nd photo is without a boot.

Looks to be similar to the system on mine.  The lines on the metal bit that sticks out define a range.  The binding housing must line up inside that range with the boot in, as you are (two lines to go).

Funny that I don't see many of those, then got a bunch of them in my shop to box up now.  Seeing the two marks as above should provide good forward pressure.  Again not expert with those, but after seeing several, and the pic above, I'd say you are in the money.

Your understanding is correct.

 

I have the same binding (Fischer Z13 Racetrack) on a pair of Fischer  RC4 WC SC skis. I've used Tyrolia bindings  for quite some time (also badged Head, Fischer or Elan).  Jacques hotboxed some skis for me the other day so, so some of my bindings may have been among those Tyrolia's that he looked at.

 

Have fun with your new skis.:)

Thanks.   Crazy how easy it is to mount bindings on this system...hope they ski just as well or better as other systems.
