Rossignol RPM 100 and T-plate bindings

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a pair of Rossignol RPM 100 Oversize skis. I purchased these knowing that I would have to use a Look or Rossi binding. I thought the Rossignol Axial 120 T-plate Pros I had would fit perfectly, then I realized how much space I would be putting between my boot sole an the snow! The bindings have the T-plate, a full lenght, nesting two piece 10mm lifter unit, and the skis have the twin pulsion, dampening plate. If I mounted these binding on these skis I would be riding quite high off the snow, maybe 2 inches. This does not sound ideal does it? I have realized that I think can mount the bindings without the 10mm T-plate, or perhaps I can find heel and toe 6mm lifter plates that come with the Look or Rossi lifter models and use those instead of the silver plastic T-plates I have. I would like to avoid buying new bindings, since it seems that my Axial 120 Pro bindings are fine except for a bit of extra plastic. Are these lifter plates available separately, how, where?

Technicians please advise.

I have some Vipex X PPSs which have a plate similar to the RPM 100. My Rossi Axial heel is mounted flush to the plate. The toe piece is mounted with a plastic shim (not a lifter) only a few millimeters wide that fits flush under the toe piece. This shim is used to even out the elevation of the toe piece with the heel.

My new Rossignol Power 140 bindings came with both lifters and a set of shims for the toe piece. I'm sure one of your local shops would have an extra set of shims around to sell you or give you.

ski them with the riser iirc you will be around 60mm off snow. not fis legal but fun as heck anyways.

I have the set-up you are describing. RPM with T-plate. Heel height is 61mm. Not much risk of booting out. Big angles on groomers, not great in bumps.
