Pro Tips:  Ski Binding Adjustments

Pro Tips: Ski Binding Adjustments

October 21, 2017

Ski binding adjustments can compensate for each skiers leg alignment and style as well as the built in alignment of different ski boots:

  1. The binding assembly can be moved to select the snow conditions from hard pack to deep powder by using the included 5 mm hex wrench located in the back of the riser.
  2. The cant angle and ramp angle can be adjusted by using the 2 1/4" square plastic shims located under the riser 4 bolts.  Flo Skis come standard with 2 degree cants. They are marked left and right.
  3. The ramp angle can be adjusted for more forward pressure by adding a 1 1/2 degree shim (thickest side facing the tail.) This shim can also be added to the 2 degree cant for more edge grip if needed for a total cant of 3 1/2 degrees. Or it can be used in place of the 2 degree cant for a 1 1/2 total cant if to much edge grip is experienced causing the skis to "rail".

NOTE: CHECK THE TIGHTNESS OF THE FOUR BOLTS BEFORE EACH USE.

Tyrolia SLR 100 Instructions

  1. There is a silver metal tab at the rear base of the heel unit. Lift this tab with a flat blade screwdriver.
  2. Without snow on the bottom of the boot, place the toe all the way into the toe unit and move the heel unit until it makes contact with the boot heel. Push down on metal tab to lock in place.
  3. Click the boot into the binding and notice how much of the metal tab is exposed. I/2 the tab should be showing. No more and no less. See photo and adjust per 4 below.
  4. If most of the tab is showing, move the heel unit one number forward. If most the tab is hidden move the heel back one number.
  5. See SR 100 instructions 9-10 for the other settings. 

Forward pressure adjustment with boot clicked in binding:

Tyrolia SR100 Binding Adjustment

  1. There is a black lever on both sides of the heel unit. Push it in the down position. This releases the heel to slide back and forth. 
  2. Move the heel back and hold the boot toe all the way into the toe piece. 
  3. Slide the heel unit all the way forward until it firmly touches the heel of the boot. 
  4. Release the lever to lock the heel unit. 
  5. Click the boot into the binding. (See photo)
  6. At the rear of the heel unit, you will see a slotted metal tab. Under that tab is a small metal plate with multiple small groves. With the boot in the binding, the slotted metal tab should be aligned over any of the groves located on the metal tab. 
  7. If all the groves are covered by the tab, the binding should moved one letter forward until #6 is accomplished. 
  8. If all the groves are exposed, move the heel unit back one letter until #6 is accomplished. 
  9. Both heel units should be on the same number or letter. Remember that letter or number in case someone else tries the skis. 
  10. Now adjust the DIN setting on the toe and heel units to the same number. You should ask a ski shop for that number. The wrong DIN setting could result in premature release, or no release; either scenario could result in injury. You can use the number from your old skis if it held ok. All bindings heel and toe units should have the same DIN number system.
