      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Taking off Tele bindings & putting on AT bindings

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any advice regarding the difficulties or headaches involved in removing tele bindings from a pair of skis and replacing them with dynafit AT bindings? Is this even possible? Assuming the holes don't line up and interfere, what is done to the old binding holes?

I don't think going from tele bindings to AT bindings is any different than switching out any other type of bindings. I doubt you can reuse the existing holes, so you'll probably need to redrill for the new mount. If you do it yourself, make sure your new holes are not too close to the old ones.

 

I think they sell some sort of plugs you can buy and epoxy in the holes, but I don't know if you can just use just epoxy alone. It seems like I remember someone telling me that the plugs where better because they mimicked the flex of the ski or some shit.

 

shouldn't be a big deal if you go to a shop.

It's a pretty easy fix. Your local mountain shop should be able to handle that with relative ease. If you do in yourself you can get plugs from ski shops and fill those holes. Pay close attention to the distances between pieces and the way they line up if you do it on your own. Good luck.

Yep, no problem. That's exactly what I did on my skis. Plug the holes.

 

If you're planning on mounting the dynafits on your own, do it on an old pair of worthless skis first. There's a lot to learn by just doing it and it will ensure that you do it right on your good boards.

Make sure you read everything on Lou Dawson's wildsnow.com.

 

I have replaced G3 Targas with Dynafits and can say that the holes do not interfere. Get the plugs from the shop (often free if you know someone) or use golf tees. :tup:

Upon removal of the tele bindings, you will immediately become soulless. Proceed at your own risk. :laf:
