Tyrolia LD 12?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have several sets of Rail-flex bindings. One is an LD12 Rail flex.
 Is there an LD 12 model that is not a Rail flex?

yes.

Yes there is, it is what I have on my powder skis...

The Free Flex series is not a rail binding.  As well as the Mojo.  FF12 would do.

FF bindings require a plate...

I think you mean they don't go on the rail.   You can mount them straight onto a pair of skis.

Well, the FF bindings I saw needed to be mounted on a
free flex plate which is basically a plate that is split
in the middle and has a flexible but strong polymer insert
between the plates front and read halves.

The FF binding al;so has a flexing part that will conform
to those two plates curving to conform to the ski shape
during turning.

When I asked my local shop, they pointed out that this type
of boding is made to go on a split type plate...

I did not find this requirement on Tyrolia's website though
so it might just be coincidence that all FF bindings were
mounted on plates...

The two part plate with the elastomer insert in the middle is the Vist WC plate that Head (and Fischer?) used to use on their Race Dept. skis. Head & Fischer now use the Tyrolia Raceplate RDX instead, which is also a two part flexing plate but not joined in the middle.

FreeFlex bindings are in no way dependent on a plate. You can mount them flat, on either of the plates mentioned, on the CP13/SP13/WC Jr CarvePlate style pre-drilled plates.... anything goes.

In general, FreeFlex bindings are used on higher end race/carving skis, and in general these have some kind of plate but there is no dependency. Your shop is wrong.

The OP was not asking about FreeFlex...he was asking about RailFlex and non RF LD12.  I also have them in both flavors.   The non-RF I have on my Monster 88s.

Oh absolutely Richie. Then someone mentioned FreeFlex and we were off...... :)

But YES, there is currently a Head/Tyrolia non-RailFlex LD12. The current RailFlex equivalent is RFD12.
In the past there were both RailFlex and Cyber LD12 versions.
