Marker Duke Toe Wings - Wear on Plastic RollersI have been training using videos of the radest dudes flying down chutes and couloirs to improve my mind-sphincter coordination.

Weird, what kind of boots? Think your AFD might be adjusted loose and your boots are sliding up and down on the rollers constantly?

I am using Garmont Radiums (was). Noticed it while adjusting the AFD for Titan Ultralights. Originally, it was shop adjusted. I only had a few strange releases in powder, but otherwise seemed dialled in.
My concern is that they may not roll properly, unless they are supposed to get worn like that.I have been training using videos of the radest dudes flying down chutes and couloirs to improve my mind-sphincter coordination.

Mine did the same thing. And they were adjusted to factory specs.Leave No Turn Unstoned!

I've had this situation for four years, doesn't seem to show up as a problem in a shop torque test. I got equal types of wear from Radiums and Titans, almost immediately with the toe height professionally set.Gravity always wins...

I have the same wear on a pair of dukes on which I've used Dynafit Titans, Black Diamond Factors and now Lange Rx130's.
Interesting that the Marker Tour 12's have a metal cylinder around the plastic roller.
Maybe to protect it from wear?Aggressive in my own mind

There is no way that the system is not designed to deal just fine with the tiny little bit of wear evident there. Is that even a millimeter of depth? The same thing happens to your boots when you walk around. Or worse, even. And they will work just find until the wear is really really bad.
How far out does the metal from the tech inserts protrude? That could have something to do with it, too.No longer stuck.

^^ measured it with callipers, and it was ~ 1mm (0.6 - 0.7 mm)
Really small upon measuring it. The divots seem quite substantial and it just didn't look right. Maybe no big deal...I have been training using videos of the radest dudes flying down chutes and couloirs to improve my mind-sphincter coordination.

Can you take it somewhere to get it torque tested? Your knees are worth $20.No longer stuck.

I looked at those rollers on my Dukes too. On the pair I ski the most, the rollers have similar divot/wear marks. On the two newer (less skied) pairs, they don't show any wear. All 3 sets are the original black/gold ones.

Just looked at the rollers in my Tyrolias. Barely a mark on them.
More reasons to not like Marker.No longer stuck.
