ok i know there are a million threads on this but i read them all and no one talked about this so.. im getting my invaders mounted and i told the guy i wanted them exact center mounted and he said the mounting point is 2mm back but it wont make much difference either way. is he right? sorry i know its a dumb question
some of you are right but most of you are wrong. yes, on a symmetrical ski you would think you would mount dead true center. if you turn one ski of a pair of invaders or anthems upside down, and put them together, you will see that recommended(where is skis best) is not true center, it is in fact set back a small amount. this compensates for forward lean when you are skiing switch or regular.
I have the worlds largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches around the world, perhaps you've seen it!
But really, youre probably not going to get through this whole thing before you realize its my signature, but youre going to keep reading anyway because there might be something funny at the end. Sadly, there isnt.
so i have the 08 invaders and mounted them one green forward and one pink forward, mounting position were exact same. I THINK thats what you were trying to say, and i dont think the factory intended them to be mounted how i mounted them. see pic
invader mouting point is dead center. if he says they're 2mm back well he didnt measure them right, and he prolly wouldnt notice 2mm anyway. u can mount the invaders either green or pink forward, it doesnt matter, its the invader mini's that need to have the green forward(sizes 123,133,143)
haha, wow, thanks. I didn't really expect you to actually change it, but cool. That's a nice icon too.
And the lines that say where to mount are EXACTLY in the center, not 2 mms off. I happen to have talked to the local line rep, (who coincidentally worked in a ski shop) and he mounted my invaders dead center.
That's where they're meant to be mounted.
yeah they are the deadbolts. when i took them in to get mounted the guy said "oh the old nordica bindings, cool" bout pissed meself! would have gone with look if i knew 4frnt just bought the rigths, the instruction manual that comes with them sais "ViTO" on the bindings, assuming foreign, assuming it's origin long before nordica or 4frnt. :( good bindings i'm sure but i think if you did some research you could find some purple ones for half the price and spray paint them then buy a new coat or something.
