    Atomic Binding Forward Pressure

    I just want to double check that the forward pressure setting on the Atomic Neox TL 10 is a flush screw head on the rear binding. Is this correct?

    Yes, that is not flush, heel needs to be a tad closer. Adjust it, take the boot out, and try it again.

    Splitting hairs? I would say close enough and on the right side of too much or too little. Toe pressure is about right when in the range of the Indicator (flush screws are I guess a smaller range) and does not have to be exactas long as it is in the range. I prefer to have it a little loose rather than a little tight so that the heal spring has more travel backwards in case of crash.

    Agree with @gregL. You're probably about 1/2 turn short of being flush.

    Will you die? Probably not.

    This shouldn't be necessary. The mechanism can only compress the spring just so far in the process of a release and the design should allow a little over-travel without any problems, even at max DIN setting. By setting this on the soft side of flush the pre-load on the spring is not correlated with the DIN setting.

    Maybe the range allows both to be within spec, but GregL's approach (aka the right way) results in less pre-releases and should get closer to intended release force.

    Uhhhhhhh, what?
    Also, there are still Neoxes? Weren't those all recalled for being garbage?
    No longer stuck.
