      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!

t's much easier if I explain it actually....


The binding is two pieces: a composite plate and a rubber plate (the "rubberflexor").


The shiny black piece in the photo is the composite plate, you can just see the flexor underneath it. The toe piece (aluminum) takes three screws that go through both pieces, and the flexor has two sets of screw holes so you can slide it either forward or backward when mounting the screws for either larger or smaller boots. These screw holes are the only place the two plates are attached, the binding depends on them being able to slide freely to put it on.


The rear aluminum piece is attached to the flexor by two wire clips (that can be seen in the photo--they're black), which fit into the flexor in front of and behind the heel piece. It fits in a series of grooves in the flexor, that area of the flexor is much thicker and keeps the clips from damaging the ski.


To put it on you stretch the flexor about an inch rearward by pulling backward, then strap your boot in the same way you would with a crampon.


So... the pivot is probably just behind the rear edge of the front aluminum toe piece. I say probably because the binding has enough give that your toe will lift a bit. I suspect it's actually just in front of the ball of my foot. It has a very comfortable stride.
