DingoSeanYeah, thats an issue more with the boots than the binding...
Those toes on that boot will get absolutely chewed up 'dynafiddling' the shift pins into place...
Doesn't happen with my boots, because they're made of denser polyether, rather than the Polyofaline grilamid that the lupos are constructed with.
SKIINGPARKDo you mean when putting the boot in the binding in tour mode? because that's not the case, this only happens in ski mode.
DingoSeanIt will happen in touring mode as well... But yeah, i'm not even surprised it's getting chewed up. Those boots will get chewed up by anything that touches it, seemingly.
I'd be surprised if you clicked into some crampons with those, accidentally stepped one foot onto the other, and didn't leave a pretty obvious gash in the plastic. It's just soft stuff.
SKIINGPARKDang:( Wish I knew they were this soft when I got them. I did notice after I was done my tour on them( it was the first time I used them on the way up) that they were looking pretty good. I guess just need to be careful with them in tour mode, as for downhill mode is there anything that could reduce how much they get chewed up other that skiing like a granny?
LeeLauThis doesn't cover all the issues discussed here but does cover some. Look at the last part of the article - https://www.newschoolers.com/news/read/Aggressive-Touring-bindings-Fritschi-Tecton-Salomon-Atomic-Shift
Hope it helps
