Mounting Options for a M666-Flat ski ???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I need some thoughts from those who might know something about this.
I have a pair of '04-'05 Elan M666 flat skis.
For the purposes of on-piste flexibility I would like to put a 9mm Tyrolia plate [Not the 13mm race plate],which I also happen to have lying around, on the ski. On this, I would mount some Elan[same as Tyrolia] Freeflex bindings.
Here is where I need some advise:
The M666's are indented in the area where the bindings would mount and this indentation is a bit shorter than the riser plate. Will this prevent me from using this plate?
I could mount the Freeflex bindings diredtly to the ski but then I wouldn't get the added lift on the bindings that I'm hoping for.
If anyone has any thoughts or knows about this potential problem, your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm also installing the CP 9 plate on my Monster 88. The ski is completely flat however.

I would contact Ski Depot. They have given me binding advice even when no sale was imminent. They sell both Elan & Tyrolia gear.

Cheers,

Yes.

It depends on what length M666 you have. If it's the 168cm (or smaller) then most regular plates will not fit (for sure on the 9mm Tyrolia plate).

I had these skis and used the Elan Jr. Race Plate which is short enough to fit into the depression. This plate is not different in build quality or strength and has the identical hole pattern to the other Tyrolia plates (just one less row of holes for bigger boot sizes). As long as you wear smaller boots (less than a 28 or 29) then the boot sole length will probably work.
