Boot wiggles in binding HELP
I have sth 12's mounted on this years dumonts, the bindings are from last season. I ride spk kreation boots (the blue ones from awhile back) and i have been riding them for 3 years. i got the toe pads on them replaced because i thought that was the problem my boot stiil wiggles in my binding. I even adjusted the binding to have it fit tighter around my boot and i tuned up my din to almost 11. How can i fix this?
Have they allways done that?
Business in the front and party in the back is what i live by.
STHs have a platform rise in the toe piece. Most likely you don't have the right tool, but if you look at the toe piece there is a screw that has a star pattern hole (looks kinda like an allen wrench hole, but it's not), you can adjust that so it fits your foot better. If you don't have that tool you can either go buy one or better yet go to a shop and have them fix it. And, put your DIN back to where the shop set it, it was set that way for a reason.

you might want to check your forward pressure

This could deffently be your problem.
I love skiing more than anything in the world. With out Skiing, Line skis, Minnesota, and Trollhaugen there is no way I would be where I am today. I love where I live, people hate it, but I wouldn't trade Minnesota for anything. Skiing and Minnesota have changed my life.
keep wrapping duct tape around around the toe of your boot till it fits

i agreee with flashkick you want to put your din's back down before you hurt yourself. Also the first thing to check is the forward pressure, if not then you need to get a shop to take a look at them

Yeah the DIN obviously isn't your problem, and I think Salomon boots have a slightly raised toepiece thing, I noticed it on mine and it seems from pictures that it is the same.

Post pics of the binding with the boot in it. Pics of the heel and toe from the side and a pic of the forward pressure indicator on the heel.

not really sure where the forward pressure thing is on the heel but i will get pics and post them right away thanks for everyones help. If i get this problem fixed is it gonna make it harder to eject? cause right now at around 10 feels perfect and they have poppped off on me at the right times before.
Sounds like a problem with your AFD (the part under the toe that pushes the boot upwards into the binding). Which way does the boot wiggle, side-to-side, up and down, forward and back?
Which way it moves really determines exactly what the problem is.
it is side to side. i have noticed before some up and down though, but i think that might just be the binding flexing with the boot
