Id like to keep this thread going.
Just because the kickstarter has ended doesnt mean Lars and Matt wont be taking orders for more systems.
04-27-2013, 03:39 PM
We made it! Many thanks to all those who support this.
We've got our work cut out for us now.
You guys all rock!

What veggie said.
The boot sole height is not changed from stock. The bindings are, however, raised the 7mm to accommodate the system.
04-23-2013, 09:14 AM
Mind explaining your reasons for not modifying your boot?
04-21-2013, 11:54 AM
6 days to go. Lets push for $55k
If you like heavy, ugly, inefficient cars abused since day one with zero mountain practicality, yes, you should buy it.

On behalf of Lars, Si and Matt, I want to thank you guys for the support.
I spoke to Matt yesterday afternoon right after we hit the goal and he was stoked. The boys now have an extremely full...

Getting so close!
Help push us over the finish line!

What this man said.
Saturday was just nutty. We skied 40k vert (one of the guys was playing with his new altimiter) all on 7th and skyline from 930-330. Definitely in my top 5 days of the...
04-12-2013, 09:56 AM
We're getting close. We need one final push to get across the finish line.
thanks for all the support
Im sure there are people out there using their gopro to shoot home made porn.
Sounds like a great place to have it edit down to the good stuff
04-09-2013, 01:25 PM
At this point I dont see that happening. The CAST tech toe is for going up only, so it never sees the higher loads and safety concerns that come with going down. Lars' main goal was to use the...

Crystal was deep yesterday. Warm and heavy, but the untouched was super nice.
They did a good job as usual staggering opening things, so I skied fresh till 2:30 yesterday.
Surprise pow day in...
04-06-2013, 08:02 PM
Im pretty sure Lars has already installed the tech fittings in a set of RX130's. Shoot them an email to confirm, but Im pretty sure youre good to go.
The CAST toe can be installed in any boot...

Without trying to mindlessly pimp my own (not mine, but im helping with it) product, the CAST system sounds like a half decent idea for you.
Tech on the way up, for nice touring, DH binder on the...
04-04-2013, 10:29 AM
Halfway there bump
Im back on the grid for a little while, so Ill attempt to answer your outstanding questions soon
keep the love, and money, coming
you guys rock
03-28-2013, 04:21 PM
The CAST guys have been dealt a major blow today: the death of someone really close to us. Our dear friend Dave died at Brighton last night, so please be patient waiting for responses to questions. ...
03-27-2013, 06:22 PM
that one is a little further out than the additional plates. Its tough to tell the future of that particular part.

MARKER AND SOLOMON PLATFORM UPDATE
Due to the amount of interest around the possibility of a broader range of compatible binding platforms we are making the systems for the Marker...
03-27-2013, 10:24 AM
Tough to say. Im not sure what the boys' plan is should it not make it.
We still have high hopes the kickstarter will hot 100%
Shoot me a PM, Im not entirely sure what you're asking here. ...
Thanks for posting this Altaos and GS
People seem to want an easier solution for holding the brakes up...
this is the easy one.
03-25-2013, 01:40 PM
Still lots of work to do. Keep the love coming folks.
03-21-2013, 12:04 PM
Bumping this back up.
We are at $15k out of $50k.
Please share this with friends. Keep the stoke high on this. The initial investment to get the ball rolling is up to you guys!
03-21-2013, 11:32 AM
way ahead of you
link for the sake of ease!
03-21-2013, 09:53 AM
Bumping this guy back up. We need a lot more support to see the dream become reality.
Keep the love coming
03-19-2013, 10:38 AM
^^^Bird and eastern: thanks a ton. Tell your friends, we still have a long way to go
I cant answer this one, shoot the guys an email: Cast@Casttouring.com
Woo is correct. The mount...
03-18-2013, 01:34 PM
I hear ya. Id shoot the guys an email to see what they can do for you.
thanks BD, I do my best
Thanks for posting this. I havent had time to call the guys to see what was up with that.
03-16-2013, 12:46 PM
The new toe isnt really a lifter. They are machining off a small portion of the toe and bolting on a new lower section with intrgrated technical fittings for the dynafit binding. They are 100%...
03-15-2013, 04:53 PM
You're in luck
Each mount plate has the EXACT SAME HOLE PATTERN as the slider. This means you NEVER NEED TO REDRILL your skis to mount the system. Pull off the DH binders, screw the Si&I plates...
03-15-2013, 04:41 PM
here we go, this is gonna be a long one
Should the removable heel plates come available, they WILL be available separately to satisfy those who already have the toe system. You wouldnt have to...
03-14-2013, 11:59 AM
Based on your comment, this is a good system for you. I have dukes because until now, there were no other good options. I hate my dukes.
1. Yup, they have a slick jig they will use to make room...

03-13-2013, 10:39 PM
The molds and other production investments are pretty pricey, so this is hard to answer. This is what the Kickstarter is for, to make sure there is enough interest to fund (warrant) going to full...
03-13-2013, 04:19 PM
Yup, that one was covered in this thread.
For now its only the radical hole pattern, the older hole patterns will follow. Lars and Matt had an easier time getting radical toes to design with. ...
03-13-2013, 04:06 PM
Yup, the 14 is covered
03-13-2013, 03:49 PM
Yes, the toe inserts can be installed in any alpine boot. Take a look at the video 3/4 the way down the kickstarter page.
For anyone worrying about the strength of the insert: remember, you're...
03-13-2013, 03:35 PM
bumping this thread up. The Kickstarter is now live!
03-13-2013, 03:20 PM
Finally, the Kickstarter for the CAST Si &I /GMF/Lars Chickering-Ayers binding is up.
03-11-2013, 12:44 PM
the second generation will be machined from unicorn horns and will use unobtanium thread inserts
03-11-2013, 12:17 PM
Yes, one package on Kickstarter will be a 2 ski option. More than that will require talking to the guys. Obviously they dont want to have too many sliders with no base plates in stock, and its hard...
03-11-2013, 09:08 AM
You mean just the CAST system, no binding included?
The plates (sliders) would be next to useless without the mount plate (receiver for the slider)
I believe you will be able to buy just the new...
I have one of TNF's powder quide vests with the same cinch straps. I love the vest, but im not a fan of the cinch design. They come loose frequently and tend to come unhooked from the end once...
03-10-2013, 03:39 PM
Is it as miserable at stevens as it looks right now?
03-09-2013, 01:19 PM
That is correct. For the time being the only tech toe hole pattern will be the radical. As with the alpine bindings, they designed for what they had in their quiver, and what they could get access...
03-08-2013, 12:36 PM
Let me clarify:
The plates (sliders) are laser cut 6061
The mount plates are cast 6063 series and I believe they are annealed after casting...
03-08-2013, 10:54 AM
I just spoke to Matt about shipping blanks, its a no go right now. Each toe plate is cast, the holes are part of the mold. So unless the solly holes are far enough from the cast holes such that you...
03-08-2013, 10:12 AM
If they can withstand Lars and Si skiing them, they can handle even the most superhuman of skiers.
The amount of totally trashed skis in their shop is staggering. The only failed CAST parts are...
03-08-2013, 10:04 AM
The inserts they are using for the binding screws require being pressed in (with an arbor press) extremely carefully. I will talk to the guys about the potential of shipping blanks with an...
