Question for those who bought S912's from SAC

post #1 of 4

When these arrived, it looks like they are supposed to have a lifter, there is a little tab under the toe and there is a slight 2mm heel lift. but with the binding sitting flat there is no ramp angle. What have others done.

The S912 comes in many forms. FIS, PE-2, Driver, etc..

If it came with just the binding, it was either originally designed to be on a race plate or on a fat ski with no lift what so ever. I think the ramp angle on the s912 was pretty close to flat.

Do you need some sort of lift? if so, I do have a PowerAxe-2 plate sitting around that I'd be happy to part with. I think I also have a mounting set (from a demo binding) that I would be happy to part with as well.

Phil, those S912's might have been originally intended for use with Salomon skis equipped with the Pilot Edge system.

I have Salomons with both the Pilot Freeride and the Pilot Edge system. The Pilot Freeride plates on my now-mothballed Scrambler 7's provide no ramp, so the S711 bindings that came with these skis came with a ~4mm heel lift spacer that went under the heel to produce a total toe/heel lift differential of ~4mm.

In contrast, the Pilot Edge plates on my Equipe 10 SC's provide a toe/heel lift differential of ~2mm. The S912 Ti bindings did not come with any spacers of any sort, and so the result is a total toe/heel lift differential of ~2mm.

So yeah, some Salomon bindings (at least 2004/2005 vintage) have no inherent ramp.
