I'm sure this is a complete "n00b" question, but living 150 miles away from the nearest ski store, I figured this is about the only place that I could ask.
I just recieved a pair of Salomon Z10 TI bindings. While comparing them to my Z12 TIs, I realized that there is a strange bracket on the bottom of the Z10s that my Z12s lack. I'll post some pictures so you can see what I means...
As you can see, the brackets protrude out the bottom of the bindings, so they will not mount flush to the ski surface. I thought about simply removing the metal bracket, but, if I do so, there will still be plastic pieces protruding out. Is there a certain type of bracket that these bindings fit into? It appears as though these bindings would be lifted quite a bit off the surface of the ski, which I definitely do not want.
Thanks in advance.
