    Tyrolia Attack 13 Demo paper template


    Updated 2018.12.06
    - I have yet to change the verbiage on the template itself, but the Attack 13 demo and Attack2 13 demo appear to have the same layout dimensions in every respect. Thus, this template can be used for Attack2 demo mounts as well. I'll update the template to note that explicitly later, but thought I'd mention it here in the thread too.

    Updated 2017.09.28
    - Updated template. Attached to this post. Knut has failed to respond to my direct request that he change the heel pattern to 43mm width. I'd hate for someone to get it wrong, so I've updated the template, and double and triple checked it with the original template I used to mount. Exact match. The new template is much better, less crude and "Thag-caveman" style. Enjoy! Feedback always welcome - especially if you're going to boost my ego !

    ---
    Update: 2016.09.23
    I've made one change to the heel piece. [I was able to get the plastic template from Tyrolia in-hand and measured everything again. Made a 1mm change in the heel piece. But the old version was very close. Updated the PDF.]

    Would be glad to have someone crank it out in CAD.

    ---
    So, I've done three test mounts on a board for this template.
    It was done with direct measurements from an actual binding I have in-hand, along with supplied measurements from a plastic template supplied by Tyrolia.

    Tested with BSL's of 278mm & 296mm. It produces proper back-pressure when adjusted to the proper BSL marks/settings on the binding. Boot center is very close. +/- 1mm by my eye.

    Since back-pressure wasn't tested with larger boots, and seemed to be higher for smaller BSL's, you might want to do a test mount if your BSL is greater than 296mm, which was the largest BSL I tested with.

    Do a test mount on a 2x4, it's a lot cheaper/safer than test mounting on your skis first.

    As always, print the template. Pull out a known-accurate ruler. Measure several of the given measurements with the ruler. If they're not the size stated, you'll need to adjust scaling for the PDF output to your printer. Increase or decrease scaling as needed to get them to match. THROW AWAY ALL THE WRONG ONES, LIKE RIGHT NOW! Now double check it again. Both the toe and heel. Once you're SURE it's right, you're good to go.

    Finally, anything you do wrong, is your problem. Not getting your bindings mounted professionally is a choice you make willingly, and accept the risk accordingly. You accept all risk for any mistakes or problems from mounting your own bindings - even if the template is horribly wrong. If you want guaranteed results, and someone to [perhaps] accept liability, go pay a shop to mount them.

    You might at least consider getting the release values checked. It's cheaper than paying for the most minor of medical procedures, should they not release properly. [A tib/fib intramedullary rod, and follow-up, to repair a broken lower-leg is $30-40K - don't ask me how I know.] At minimum, know how to properly calculate your DIN, adjust the DIN on the binding, the forward pressure, and the AFD height. Other bindings may have additional items to set/check.

    Interesting that you have 43mm for rear hole spacing.
    I think that is correct, by placing my binding on the template.

    NOTE - Knut has made an official template of this here:
    http://www.powderguide.com/community...nhang1820.html

    BUT HE HAS THE REAR HOLES AT 42MM WHICH I DO NOT THINK IS CORRECT

    Note also that his non-demo Tyrolia template also has the holes at 42mm. Tyrolia has not changed their hole pattern in many years. I don't have a non-demo heel, but I believe they are the same based on an old plexiglas template I still have.

    I've never done a mount using the PG template. [His templates are totally wicked, BTW - they look so good, and the ski centering guide is the bomb too.]

    Anyway - I too thought that 43mm was a better fit, but I also thought my measurements might well be off. [And the argument was, other tyrolia's used 42mm - it seemed more probable that 42mm was correct - which seemed reasonable.]

    But laying the baseplate on the template like you've done makes it pretty obvious that 42mm isn't right.
    I'll email Knut and see if he can change the PG one. [I asked if he'd crank a "pretty" one, instead of the hack-ish looking one I created. He used mine as the source for his, with the one change to the rear heel-piece holes at 42mm.]

    ^^^thanks. Let him know the regular Tyrolia template might be 43mm also. But I don't have a non-demo binding handy to check it.

    Would hate to see someone drill wrong holes

    Emailed Knut - lets see what he says. [I have no idea about the non-demo version.]
    I got the measurements for my template by using calipers against an actual binding. Then, eventually, I got the Tyrolia plastic template, and double-checked against it too. But that's all pretty imprecise, especially with my nearly 50y/o geezer eyes! [With apologies to all geezers everywhere.]

    let me try to help. I just picked up a new pair of Tyrolia Attack 13s. I can't back out of the Powderguide Attack Demo template link above to find the non-demo one and my understanding of German sucks. Can someone post up the Powderguide template link for the regular Attack 13? thanks.

    This looks like the Attack 13 NON demo template...

    @Chaka, @Core Shot:
    I emailed Knut, but no reply.
    I guess I'd suggest that people use my less than pretty template until Knut fixes the PG one.

    See first post in the thread. [Addendum at the bottom.]
    Updated template with the proper 43mm rear-screw width on the heel piece.

    I was going to attach the template again, but since I updated it up there, just grab it from the first post.

    I just stumbled upon this thread by chance...

    Sorry for that, I must have missed your email and can't find it in my inbox. My sincere apologies, I am crap at such stuff at times.

    Is 43mm now the consensus? Because the 42mm I used is just verified due to the heel being basically the same than other Tyrolia bindungs. However, the old bindings had way bigger holes in their baseplates allowing for more wiggle room and less precision.
    Jondrums (Standard) Tyrolia template measures 42.5mm rear hole width.

    The template above is correct. I [and others] have mounted the demo binding and 42mm is simply not right. I have no idea what any older binding may have used, but it's obvious, looking at the picture that 42mm simply can't be right - at least for the demo version. I can't imagine the non-demo is different, but all I can attest to is the demo. [And I didn't think 42mm was right when I did my first mount - but deferred to "history" at the time. With the additional comments, it's pretty conclusive, IMO.]

    The template up above is correct and has been updated. You can either change the PG one to match or remove the PG one and point to this one.

    Thanks

    It's always hard to get the templates right for bindings I personally wouldn't touch with a pair of pliers and therefore rarely mount myself.

    Guys, to make this as clear as mud, I think it actually may be 42.5mm. First, to be clear, there is zero difference between demo and non-demo heel patterns. I have used the standard Tyrolia Jigarex plate for demo heels and they mount up perfectly fine.

    I took some pictures below to determine whether 42mm or 43mm is correct. The first are my calipers lined up with the demo heel baseplate holes at 43mm:



    And at 42mm:



    Hard to tell from the pics, but it looks to line up better at 43mm than 42mm. The next is my Jigarex plate -- it looks like 42mm:



    The next is the plastic template from Tyrolia that came with a pair of demos at 42mm. It lines up well, but maybe a tad short:



    The next is the midpoint between screws in a demo heel at 42mm. It lines up perfectly at 42mm:



    The next two pictures show Tyrolia's plastic template over top of GregoryS's paper template, printed perfectly to scale. You can see the front heel holes line up perfectly at 20mm, but the aftmost holes are slightly closer on the plastic template versus GregoryS's:





    I then placed the heelplate over top of GregoryS's paper template, then on top of the plastic template --- virtually no difference:





    Lastly, a good old ruler placed on the holes of the Tyrolia plastic template --- somewhere between 42mm and 43mm -- call it 42.5mm:



    I have a feeling either template is "correct" in that it will not result in mismounts. Both Knut and GregoryS have done good work on this template and others, and frankly I think either is fine. I would certainly trust the 43mm distance doing a hand mount, as the screw threads are more than that small variance anyways.

    I have 10 templates. If someone wants them all, I would be glad to ship them. $20.00 for all (shipped). Not interested in splitting them up...contact buyer.

    Thanks for this @gregorys . Going to mount up some demos this weekend to have a set of backup skis for friends, family, and any mags wanting to try out some deathwishes.

    So, I have an attack2 demo in hand, and all measurements certainly seem to show that this template is unchanged for the Attack2 13 *demo* [I have no idea about the non-demo layout.]

    When I get a chance, I'll update the template to indicate on the template itself that it's applicable to the Attack2. If anyone has mounted the Attack2 demo using this template, feedback is welcome. [But my calipers and eyes, comparing the printed template under the binding pieces, say it's exactly the same layout as before.]

    -Greg
