Nope - not overly stiff at all. Its a lightweight composite 13mm plate used on top end consumer skis (like the Head i.SL/i.Speed and Supershapes) and some junior race skis. Its pre-drilled for Tyrolia (and Fischer/Head/Elan) bindings - something like a Freeflex Pro in an appropriate DIN range would go down nicely.

Yes, it can be purchased separately but Iit may be hard to find. They do turn up on eBay (see post above).

 

My info was slightly off - the junior race skis use a CP9 (9mm version of the same plate) , and Head's version of the plate is apparently 14mm instead of 13mm according to the 08/09 tech manual, but the differences are minimal.

 

There is a dedicated jig for mounting the CP13 and relatives, but a check of the tech manuals shows that the shop can also use the regular Tyrolia jig set to boot length 230mm.

 

Coincidentally, earlier in the season I bought a pair of lightly used Head LD12s and CP13 plates from a guy who had them mounted on Stöckli Laser SCs.

Is the tyrolia plate anywhere near as nice as a VIST plate cause i certainly know which costs more.

You can get a 9mm version of this plate at LevelNine for $12.

I think the Visit plate is much more heavy duty and quite stiff.

I see your point, lol! Well, he'd "upgraded" to a Marker Comp 18 on a piston plate. I didn't ask why, but if he was racing then I can see he might've wanted something more than the LD12s. Personally I'd have slapped a FF+18 on the Tyrolia plate instead.

If you're happy with the Supershapes you'll be happy with the Tyrolia plate. The top end Vists are apparently real beasts - serious racers only!
