Question: Dynafit TLT7 toe welt addition


Recommended Posts

I was recently given a pair of used TLT7s. I have been wanting to make the jump to hardboots for some time.

I know that these boots aren't compatible with existing hardboot split bindings but want to make an attempt at constructing an HDPE toe welt using adhesive and some drilling into the toe/sole of the boot. 

Has anyone done such a thing? Any advice?

Advice? Don't. I mean really, don't.

Gluing these plastics is not really possible meaning you will not even be close to the shear strength of the virgin plastic and you will create a fracture point at the toe of the boot. Ditto drilling/screws/etc... This is not something you want to find out when you are riding down a steep face in the backcountry. 

Try selling these and buying some used backlands or (if you can find them) a pair of TLT6. Hell, see if someone will trade you a pair of TLT6 for these.

I am in my first full season on plates and I have TLT6s on F2 carves on a Gnu freeride board. Very (maybe even super) happy with the setup.

Check the AIL thread. This game is risky enough as it is.

 

Cheers
