Today I had a binding failure (Nidecker Freecarves) on my last run. My GPS watch had me above 40 mph when my back foot came loose. I slid a few hundred feet on my back but I was 100% fine, luckily. I saw that my toe piece wad sliding around and figured a screw had come loose.
I just took it apart to add loctite to each screw and was surprised to see that the offending screw had actually had a few threads sheared off. It looks like it was too short, despite coming with the bindings.
Anyone see this happen before?
I am looking to sell my Salomon Malamute softboots, size 9 US mens. They are in excellent condition, almost no signs of wear. They are from the 2016/2017 season, purchased new at REI and used maybe 12 times or so since. They are just a bit too small for me, I typically wear size 10.
These boots are perhaps the stiffest softboots on the market. They also use plastic inserts to increase stiffness, all of which are accounted for and included. The liners are advertised as heat moldable, I had REI mold them once when I purchased.
Salomon's current model is almost the same as what I'm selling here, with liners being the biggest difference (no more synching cord on the newer liners) and a different tread pattern on the sole. Also, the orange plastic "powerframe" is light blue on the current model. The current model retails for 399.95 USD.
I'm asking 200.00 USD for these, buyer pays shipping. Please reply if interested.

They really friggin’ hurt.
really though other than that.
i have a new set of drivers, I like them, sort of. They are better than the old malamutes.
So, for a long time most high end boots came in one of two configurations either a hinge type that works better but they are much softer or like the driver where to flex forward it forces the boot to deform this crushes the foot, that shit hurts and it’s because the driver has no hinge.
It looks like it’s still this way with most brands..
I’ve had a couple sets of 32s and Burtons that hinge, this is a better design, why the hell cant they just build one with a stiffer tongue?
Anyone have an answer to that?
Pictured is a hinged design.. I actually forgot I had these boots.
Pics to follow. Very clean pair of bindings. I’m a 9 and they fit great. No signs of wear or damage. I’ve used them 2x since I got them used from a fellow BOL member. All black. I’m assuming they are mediums as there is no visible marking stating size and I’m not swimming in them.
would trade for some Power Plate uppers with the 6 large mounting hardware bolts...
