Adjusting Atomic Neox 412 binding length

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Altered my binding length last week for Rockyrobin to have a spin on my b5's.

Problem is I can't figure out how to set them back again

I use the forward position & the Atomic manual says to round down my Diablo Fire's 314mm sole length to 310mm.

I've set the toe mounting length so that the toe scale reading of 31 is centred in the middle of the bottom grey window (with the skis pointing to the left).

I've then set the heel length so that the heel scale reading of 31 is centred in the middle of the upper grey window.

Seemed straightforward enough. Problem is that my boot won't fit in the binding.

If I expand both the toe & heel pieces one notch each on the ratchet so that the line between the 31 & 32 readings is centred in both the windows (ie 315mm?), the heel my boot still doesn't quite go in to the binding.

It's only when I set both scales so that the 32 is centred in both windows does the boot fit. But then this 320mm setting is then longer than the boot length & contrary to the instructions in the manual.

Not a ski tech.

What about setting the front on 31 and the back on 32 (for an effective 31.5). That's sort of the scheme I use on my Tyrolia Railflex bindings for a 315 boot length.

have you also used the forward pressure adjustment screw at the heel to adjust the heel backwards with your settings each on 31. my boots are 314 and I am set on centered position @ 31.5

Spyderjon, Hello again. I seem to remember when changing your bindings I only had to move them one notch so that would mean they were most likely originally set on 315.
With me not changing your tension screw at the back the 315 should allow you to step in and go.
If your still having trouble i'll go through it with you tomorrow evening when I see you.
Look forward to seeing you tomorrow evening mate.

Yeh, that's what I thought. Anyway, I've set both scales at 31 & backed off the forward pressure screw completely & that allowed me to get my boot then. Then re-adjusted the forward pressure so the screw was flush. That seems to have done the trick.

It is possible to set them at 31.5, isn't that a better option for that sole length?

Now just what would a B2 owner know about Atomic bindings?

Actually yes, I would have thought so myself but the Atomic booklet says to round down the boot length. Don't know why but I'm gonna ask the Atomic UK rep & also query it the Snowsport England binding training session I'm going to next week.

Sorry I missed you on Monday (presuming that you went). Finished work early so just skied from 4-6 with RR. It'll probably be a few weeks until I make another Mon evening session.

And you still need to try my b5's. RR & myself will make a Metron skier out of you yet

Apologies for not responding sooner but thanks for the earlier advice which did the trick.

Any idea why the Atomic book says to round down the sole length?

Atomic has always said to round down to the next lower setting. Partcularly on the Race & Xentrix series bindings which you could still do on the neox. You should be able to put them on 310 and move the heel back to accomodate a 314. This would put you very slightly farther back on the ski because the 31 (310 setting) would move the toepiece back on the ski farther than the 31.5 setting. You could certainly use either and even mix and match. In other words as long as the the 2 numbers combined = 62 (620) or 63 (630) you can move the binding pretty much anywhere (within reason.

Mmm, didn't know that. I already have the binding in the forward position which puts the boot centre line about 1cm forward of the ski centre line. How much further forward of that, would reason dictate, I could/should go?
