Railflex Question for New Boots Length

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just got a pair of Langes and the sole plate is 328mm, my old boot length is 325mm. Question is, do I just move the heels pieces back to 330mm position and leave the toes as is, or is this a mute point and just leave them as is?
THX in advance to the think tank.

You would have to check the forward pressure indicator to be sure. It is unlikely that the length difference is a perfect 3mm.

Nothing wrong with taking the set in to the ski shop for a complete binding check.

Michael, I have every intention of getting the "works" done for my new setup. I'll be at Troy's in Vail my first day in town to get all the adjustments made. Was really just curious as to whether I should move the heels or toes, prolly move the toes now that I've thought about it.

I might just leave them and see what the FP is like, but then again I like my Tyrolias a little on the high side.

Moving toes vs heels is really a fore/aft preference. I highly doubt you'd be able to feel a 3mm difference fore/aft, so don't sweat it.

 Might not need any adjustment other than a fwd pressure tweak at the heel, maybe not even that.  I believe there is about a 4mm range of adjustment meant to be handled by forward pressure at the heel piece (due to the fact that the nominal boot sizing is done in discrete steps with RF).

Skier, seems that any adjust will be nominal, the Langes clicked right in. I did go with moving the toe pieces, but I am not really concerned about going forward or aft. I have been skiing at the back settings on the RFs since my first deep powder day on them a couple years back. I have my Ninthward First Bloods mounted 7mm back of center, and have skied them as far back as 22mm, just don't try that on firm snow.

 Just be sure the forward pressure is correct, as it is a key factor in retention/release!
