Head Rebel I Speed Binding Mount

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have a new pair of the Rebel I speed and I ordered the Head Freflex Pro Bindings.
I have BSL on the plate so looking at the bindings do I remove the track and do I need different screws or do I have the wrong binding?

If I am measuring the brake correctly it is 100 and from what I have read I should be no more the 15mm over the with of the ski which is 66. So is the brake to wide and if so what can I do? On the box it says 88 so maybe it is OK and I am measuring it incorrectly.

That is the correct binding and the brake is the 88mm, so you should be fine. no need to change anything wrt screws or 'track'. You mount the heel first to your boot sole length, then snap the toe and AFD plate together and install so the center screw is on top of the heel's track, once the toe is screwed down in place (again, by sole length) you can 'wiggle' the heel so that the center screw drops down into the correct slot on the heel track, then just screw that tight and set the heel for forward pressure (rear tab) and set your DIN.

Levy, do yourself a favor and spend the money to have a good shop set them up. I know it's 6 hours, but you have all summer.

Come on man. I'm on Social Security. How hard is it to Mount 8 screws up get the BSL right and then pay for the torque test.

... uhmmm... harder than I thought?

 

Fwd P is set using the flat tab behind the heel piece. Lift it up with a flate blade screwdriver, this lets you move the heel on the heel track. With the boot clicked in the routed lines on the tab should line up with the rear binding housing. (If this doesn't make sense do a google search for the tech manual) No need for loctite anywhere, all the screws are going into plastic.

 I will screw up the mount and let the shop do the torque test..!;)

Many have liked and recommended mounting the bindings forward on this ski by 1 cm. Very easy to do on this pre-drilled plate. The 88mm brakes can work. If you can locate the 78mm brakes for the LD Head/Tyrolia FF Binding, you might like the fit even better.

Thank you, 

I will try it both ways. 

Cheers
