BETARACER: Atomic race binding position

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What is the best way to determine the correct binding position on a pair of last years 195 SG's? No marks on the sidewall. 311mm boot sole.

For normal length boot sole (295ish to 325ish) I mount all speed event skis with the toe piece in the middle set of holes (depending on the plate) and the heel such that full Variozones settings can be used (even solid black plate can be drilled if needed). Then I advise athletes to play around with fore/aft placings with the varizone to get the desired turniness or stability. There is room to put up to 3mm lift under the heel piece to get a bit more delta (and still be legal for FIS rulings) and put a bit more pressure on the tip to help with initiation. My personal skis are set with 3mm heel lift, and one notch forward for DH and SG. 201SG, 209SG, 210DH and 215DH. 314mm boot sole.

Thanks, that is helpful.
The plates I have are the solid plastic blocks, though. I don't believe they are pre-drilled. I haven't pulled the bindings off to look, but they don't appear to be. They were drilled for a 295ish??? boot. Maybe go a centimeter forward of where they are?

the Black 2 piece World cup plate is predrilled and is a "toe" mount setup. I assume the plate was on the ski when you got it. there is only one set of holes for the toe & heel & as I remember you just mount the binding track in those holes and then adjust with the steel band to your correct size using the 10mm # below your below sole length to grossly adjust the heel position then adjust forward pressure as usual. i have about 8 pair with that plate in the garage. But they are all currently mounted. I believe both my boys bindings are mounted in the same holwes even though one wears a 25 and one wears a 27 boot. I believe the holes are predrilled in the paalte for an approx. 27 shell. But again that plate is a toemount not boot center mount as I remember.

I suppose you could remove the plate and remount it so that the actula boot you are using would be center ounted on the ski. you would have to be sure the new holes in the ski for the plate were adequately distanced from the original holes in the ski.

OK...... who are you? Mike?
These speed skis are going to make me UNTOUCHABLE! They are designed for one thing: BEATING RUSSIANS I'm sure I'll be seeing you at Brule soon, eh?

That's right you will be untouchable, no need to touch people behind .
Do you truly believe that your new dimpled top-sheets will be faster than a super speed custom cut Volkl tips .

Either way we will see who is who at Brule.
I am also coming up to Brule for Thanksgiving, will be teaching a camp.
Stop by we will have gates set up.

Later
