Duke Chew

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I've had my dukes now for ~2.5 seasons & they have eaten my AT slippers up terrible.  I've not skied the Duke w/ an alpine boot much.  Are folks finding Dukes eating their Alpine boots as well?

I haven't noticed any problems with my Krypton Pros.  Picked up apair of Endorphines so I will see what happens this year.  My daughter has used Barons for a season with her Megastars with no problems.  But she only weighs 105 pounds if that makes any difference.

 I would guess that the bindings aren't adjusted properly for the AT boot with a rockered sole.  I haven't used mine yet, but will probably be using my alpine boot on that heavy setup.

make sure they are adjusted correctly. i work the heel piece 8-10 times before i see a consistent foward pressure adjustment on dukes. once it stays constatn i stop.

This is more of a factor of laying the ski on edge & pressuring the boot w/ a gummy sole.  I have heard a ton of this in AT & figured there would be a non issue w/ a alpine boot. the have quite a rep for eating AT boots.

 I was thinking that the upward toe clearance might not be correct.  I have to adjust my fritzchie toe clearance when I change soles on my AT boots.

I have had some chewage going on back of kryptons from dukes, not that bad though.

 My Dukes are chewing up the heel of my FTs.  The forward pressure seems extremely high as it is pretty hard to step in and the heel contacts the binding well before the heel contacts the step in tab.  I have played with the forward pressure adjustment but don't seem to get good retention unless it it set pretty high.
