Binding remount question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi all, I found a pair of skis with Tyrolia Attack 13 bindings mounted for a pair of 27.5 boots. My boots are of size 24.5. Can the bindings be adjusted to fit my boots? If not, can they be re-mounted safely?

 

Thanks.

They can't be adjusted that much. Most likely they can re-mounted although the tech may need to adjust the mounting point a bit.

Your bindings mount off boot center? First remount the toepieces back to where they should be for your boots. I'm not familiar with that Tyrolia binding, but with the toepiece brought back there may well be enough heelpiece adjustment that you don't need to remount them.

I'm not familiar with that Tyrolia binding and don't know how much adjustment the heelpiece has. But with the toepiece back you may be lucky and have enough forward adjustment to not remount the heels.

The consideration is whether the new screw holes will be far enough from the old screw holes to have strength.  If they're too close, the screws won't hold.  Any good shop tech will know this.  What we don't know is if the length adjuster in the heel binding is in the center of its range, or screwed in for a short sole, or screwed out for a long sole.  The sole length is molded into the boot, maybe something like 335 mm for the 27.5 (just a wild guess).  That's what the binding is set for.  Other makes & models of 27.5 boots likely have a different boot sole length (BSL).  You can look on your boots for the mm length of the sole.  And, the listed length is often slightly different from the actual measured length.

 

So--your really need to carry the skis and boots into a good shop and ask a qualified tech.

A 27.5 is about 315mm. Or 318 or 312 depending on the boot, so figure 315. That's for a race boot. I've only ever measured mine, and recreational boots could well be longer. Your 24.5 is 3cm shorter (1-3/16") than a 27.5. That means the toepiece needs to come back about half that, or 1.5cm/15mm. Holes drilled on centers 7mm apart are fine, there should be no problem remounting the toepieces. With luck there'll be 15mm forward adjustment left in the heelpieces and they won't need to be remounted.
