Salomon STH2 + Scarpa Freedom SL combination works?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

I am interested if this combination works (Freedom pin inserts)?

 

I would like to go with CAST system and since Warden bindings are not supported with CAST I wonder if this is the safe combo to be used?

 

Since STH2 do not have MNC certification am I reading on google that it should be fine using that combo except DIN value should be considered to be set -1 as normal.

 

Any experiences, feedback? I really do not want to get pre-release or safety issues on field.

 

Thanks!

Already did actually. But I was hoping to get more feedback also here if anyone using this combo.

 

Still not decided if I go that way due safety reasons. But Cast do not support Warden inserts at the moment.

The "will it work" question is a loaded one, cause "working" has different definitions to different people.

 

If "working" to you means that the toe height adjustment will allow the boot to fit in the binding and have some/most release characteristics; than yes it should work.

 

If "working" means repeatable calibrated release that a shop will test and certify and you can ski just as you would any other indemnified alpine or AT binding? No, this will not work.  The rubber sole of the SLs tech block and the non-sliding AFD do not meet compatibility norms.  Any reduction of DIN value to compensate for this is a homebrew remedy and not something that the manufacturer or any reputable shop would sign off on.
