PyduckNo saved the 99 got a tool from a friend in Australia. Thanks hero
PyduckLast year Atomic decided to change cuff adjustment screw.You used to be able to loosen torx screw and easily set your forward lean .Now even with the new tool the cuff doesn’t seem to loosen.Do you have to just force it forward or take the whole thing apart.I have had plenty of other Atomic’s I am not sure what improvement this new cuff screw makes.Seems like every move they make is to try to force you into the shops.They don’t even include the tool with your boots anymore. I had to go black market to get a tool
onenerdykidIt's hardly a move to make you go to a shop- you just need to own the right tools, just like you would with a bike or car. When you buy a bike or a car, they don't come with tools. We'd rather save the money that a tool costs (which 99% of the time gets thrown away anyway) and put it towards using nicer plastics, nicer liner foams, nicer alloys, etc.
PyduckI am not a average customer and I have worked plenty of shops I do all my own work beginning to be sorry I asked.Atomic changed the cuff screw on the hawx 130 last year.I was only wondering if anyone had experience with adjusting forward lean.I can do it but it seems harder than it should be. Oh god I hope I haven’t broken any ski laws.And yes I mount all my own bindings.I trust me more and if I screw up I know who to blame
