I do not believe there is any adjustment to the piston for the ipt system. You can turn it off by removing it.....on the Allstar IMHO you want the piston extension installed, it quiets the ski tip and forebody..... my Volkl techs tell me the piston plays a big role in why the ski feels "long" and should thus be ski'd at a shorter length than one might expect.....If you have different information I would like to know about it, I do not have an IPT instruction booklet. I have been told the only adjustment is to remove the piston assy from the ski.
Frankly tho, if there is an adjustment I wouldn't touch it. The ski's have been perfect for me in all conditions. I have not had them in deep snow...boot top deep only. I would seek a different ski for deeper snow anyway.
i realized i was looking at my fixation pin and i understand it is not to be messed with . my booklet has two paragraphs about piston control adjustment, says piston control bindings have an engagement lever positioned in front of the toe. you can set this lever in two differant positions (on,off) according to the following recommendations. the engagement lever of both ski bindings should be in the same position when skiing. piston on...packed, groomed runs, hard snow and ice piston off .deep powder.
