Do any system bindings allow for adjustable toe height?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Anyone, it was doable on some of the earlier Volkl/Markers, but not anymore. It's not something that everyone needs and it can often be addressed on the boot, but not always. I had a client last year who needed toe lifts, but her Atomic Device bindings couldn't be lifted and her Tecnica boots (Attiva version of the Vento) couldn't either.

Atomic Race and Xentrix series and CR series all have adjustable toe height.

You can put spacers on Marker Plates...

I think RTT understood, as I did at first reading, epic's question to mean:

« Do any system bindings allow for adjustable toe lift? »


If that is the question spyderjon or race510 may have some ideas with VIST.

Atomic also makes spacer plates if that is what he is asking.

For the Race/SX/Xentrix, no doubt.

Have you ever used just the toe side of those?

I have not used just the toe distance plate only but it would certainly work. And yes Race/SX/Xentrix/CR is what they are predrilled for.

Most of our Atomic skis are flat to +3 or 4 mm in the heel. The 3 of us don't need Neg. ramp.

I probably have some x-tra sets laying arond here. I also have double distance plates on my '05 166cm Stockli WC Laser SL on top of a Marker WC Slalom Piston Control Plate with Marker Comp 1400 EPS which i am going to sell here soon. They are immaculate and have barely been skied on.

All of the Volkls at Mt Hood that were avail for demo had 2 toe spacers, and no heel spacers. The WC plates come with 4-2mm spacers, 2 heel, 2 toe. I'm sure you could order more from Marker though if you really needed them.

Yeah guys, I'm not asking about individual components, but System skis. The sort of skis that would have the Device bindings. Not racy stuff, low to mid-range consumer product. Does the IZOR series use the Race/SX/Xentrix/CR bindings, and can I put toe cheese under them to change her delta?

Speaking of VIST, that's one weakness of the Speedlock stuff. You can't change toe height.

I admit to not keeping good track of mid-range stuff but in my experience most of the system skis I've seen have had a way to change toe height. Although it may require new screw sets and the like.

I don't work with the vento often but why is it not possible to add a toe shim directly to the boot?

Speedlock system can't have the toe height raised but why is it not generally possible to put toe lifter on boot?

This boot has some kind of gel type inserts sandwiched into the toe. Once the toe was lifted there and it was routered back to do DIN the hard part on top would have been too thin and fragile.

It seems to me, Vist would be the easiest to put a shim, whatever MM you want between the toe and the plate. Then you just need a slightly longer screw. Am I over simplifying things?

You are Phil, but only because the comment was specifically about Speedlock plates.

Epic, have the bases of her skis stoneground from the heel back a couple times, that'll do it.
