I'm giving an old pair of my skis to a friend. They're fitted with 2012/13 Salomon STH 12 bindings.
My boot sole length is 297mm. This is what they're currently set up for. His is 314mm.
I've done some reading about this, and have experimented with moving the forward pressure screw to fit the boots. This brings the heel piece back to nearly the end of the trac, but I am still able to have the screw in the correct position (flush with the end of the track piece).
My question is: is this an OK way to move them? Or will moving it so much just using the forward pressure destabilise it somehow (obviously I don't 100% know how this works). Is there another way I'd be better off moving them instead?
Also - aware that the centre line of the boot will be off. Not massively fussed as it's not by a huge amount.
the heel pieces should have a little indicator with a zone that is OK for the heel piece to be in. as long as you slide the heel piece back and the indicator still says it's in the OK zone, you should be fine. bring to a shop to double check
just think of the wads darth vader could conjure if he force choked his chicken
i would fuck the shit out of oprah.
Peter.the heel pieces should have a little indicator with a zone that is OK for the heel piece to be in.
Had a good look round. The only thing I could find that looked like it might be indicator is the little black arrow in the plastic (pic at top). Is this the right bit, and if so, what does it need to line up with to be in the safe zone?
17mm is a lot. If they were in the center of the track for your boot they probably won't have enough track left to slide all the way back to 314mm. I would try and explain how to adjust it but its very difficult over text. Just take them to a shop, have them check if there is enough adjustability to fit 314. If not, have them remounted.
