Marker Gliding AFD Travel Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have two sets of bindings with Marker Griffon-style toes. One set is a demo-style binding and the other is standard. On the standard toe the AFD glides quite a ways in either direction - I'm guesstimating 3cm. The end of the travel feels indeterminate - you're just pushing against a spring. On the demo-style toe, the AFD glides to the left in the same way, but when you slide the plate to the right it stops abruptly after more like 1cm. This is the same on both of the skis that have the demo toe. Is this normal, and why?

Not normal, they should be the same. Either way the toe will release before the travel runs out in the AFD.

This is exactly right.  Just make sure that you are matching norms appropriately.  Alpine ISO will have no problem releasing if the AFD glide is subpar.  But if you have a busted gliding mechanism with a rubber soled boot (AT) that same problem could have a real and significant effect on release.
