Free Flex 14d Adjustment ?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

When I picked up my Head iSupershape Speeds, I didn't have my boots with me when I bought them and they mounted the bindings to the race plate with a size that I thought my boots would be. I need to know how to adjust the binding to accommodate my boots. They are mounted to the integral raceplate that is part of the ski. I checked the search with no avail and would appreciate instruction (Do I need to dismount the bindings from the plate?). Also do you guys have DIN conversion where I can find out what the appropriate DIN should be for my weight and skier ability?

Thanks Again!
Ryan

do the bindings need a gross adjustment or a fine adjustment?

Fine Adjust would be slightly more/ less forward pressure.

Gross Adjustment would be distance between toe and heel WAY off, this will require a remount.

Give us some more info.

Height, weight, age, boot sole length and skier type will let us tell you your DIN. I honestly have to say if you don't know your DIN you should have them adjusted professionally... but I won't hold my breathe.

They are way off. They need 15-17mm to allow the boot to engage them.

Was that hard to understand???

Height- 5'11" Good, you get one *
Weight- 250lbs Awesome, you get 2 ** !!!
Age- ???? guess you're female and feel it's rude to be asked your age?
Skier Type- ??? looking for -I, I, II, III or III+ here.
Boot Sole Length- ????? your entire question needs you to answer this with a millimeter length, till then you can't have any answer.

Now you've hurt my feelings, calling me names, that's just rude... and intimidating. So I'm sitting here with hurt feelings and scared by the big, chubby, clueless internet guy with bindings that don't fit his/ her boots. You really put me in my place, well played Sir (or Mam, which ever.)

I think that binding has 24mm of length adjustment in the track & it's adjusted by lifting the protruding metal tab in the rear of the heel piece under din adjustment screw. Use a flat bladed 'driver to lift the tab to disengage the locking teeth & slide the heel piece back/forward in it's track. The length is correct when, with the boot installed, the end of the housing (or indicator, depending on the exact model) falls within the scribed lines on the tab.

However most mounting jigs set the length based upon the heel piece being set in the middle of it's travel so you're unlikely to get the 15-17mm of adjustment you require so a re-mount is likely required.

Head's CP13 plate has pretty big jumps between sole lengths (30mm) ... a simple answer of WHAT THE F**K IS YOUR BOOT SOLE LENGTH would tell us:

a) if the binding needs to be remounted
b) would allow, along with a couple other answers, us to tell DIN setting.

... but no, no answers, just attitude from the short chubby guy with the questions.
