I skied Zeds last season, mounted by a legit ski shop. They were the 19-20 model that did not require a stomp pad or brake to ski safely. They were (and again are) mounted with the correct 1.5mm gap.
I had several issues throughout the season where the heel would rotate enough to cause unintended release. Even when not releasing, there was noticeable play/rotation when edging hard snow or skiing bumps. This was not an issue when they were first mounted but became increasingly an issue as the season went on.
I warrantied them with G3 and they sent me "new" (they don't look very new, I really hope they're not the ones I sent in) heel turrets. I'm mounting them now and noticed during boot fit that they have the same heel rotation issue. Hand pressure alone is enough to rotate the heel unit. Adjusting the DIN doesn't do anything.
See attached video.
Is this normal? I've skied Dynafit techs for 15 years and never had this issue with Speeds. I wouldn't be so concerned about it if there was not an impact on heel engagement feel and sometimes actual unnecessary release. I did email G3 but I'm curious what the masses say.
