Old LOOK "HP 99" bindings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, I've got this old set of LOOK bindings, and I am curious as to how they went about gauging the forward pressure.

Here is a picture showing what I think is the forward pressure gauge (this is on the back of the rear binding).





Does anyone remember where the binding lines up on the gauge (with boot installed) to indicate proper forward pressure?

This is for curiousity purposes only, of course.  I'm not going to be skiing in these, of course, and I will encase them in concrete so nobody else can ever ski in them either, of course.    ;->

Thanks!

I joined to answer your question, adjust the side rods evenly so when boots are in just the tab on the white line shows not the whole line, ok. let me know if this makes sense?

Bob's got it right. The plate slides back a couple millimeters until just the smallest part of the white outline is showing.

   We should have a 'Rossi STs set in concrete' day sometime.

 Those are actually Rossi Stratos. 

Personally, I wouldn't ski a 99, the plastic from those toe pieces in not very good and WILL blow springs like a farmer blows snot out of his nose. Better off with an older 77 series or newer Z model.

I actually still run these bindings but have broken many plastic parts off. Such as...

 

  • both heel plates
  • front tow right left black plastic bits
  • 1 front red plastic "sensor" piece
  • 2 rear springs

 

I'd like to find replacement parts.  Anyone know who or where I can find old vintage parts to fit the HP99?

 

Thanks
