    Race ski binding mount advice requested...

    Yeah I'm gonna mount them myself. As soon as someone tells me how.

    I acquired these beauties last fall but wasn't sure about the clamp requirements.

    Those sollys aren't mounted, just taped on to see which I preferred.

    Thing is, I don't know if those black plastic risers allow for any binding or only for in branded types. Anyone know?

    If I can mount whatever, do I just drill into the plastic and screw in? That's some tough material, wouldn't surprise me if treating them like a topsheet is acceptable.

    Danke...

    Don’t use this as the definitive answer (I will refer you to my username), but I have mounted other bindings into one of those Fischer plates by way of 3.5mm holes. So far so good after quite a bit of skiing.

    Edit: here is my absurd trench-ripping eurocarving mega-lifter…fischer/Tyrolia plate on the bottom:

    A type A shop tech might disagree, but any binding screw will work in those. Just mount same as you would into a wood ski (3.5mm as IAS suggested). When I raced on Fischer a while back with those style plates, I would usually heli-coil the holes so I could swap binders easily while traveling. This would add some strength if you wanted, but I foreran WC DH with nothing but screws in those plates.

    You'll notice the plates have some places where they're hollow, this is to all allow for the bracket that mounts to the ski itself. Just keep your holes away from these areas (1/2"), so you may have to adjust your desired mount point.

    Excellent fellas, thanks. Kinda what I figured but firsthand knowledge is golden.

    I don't wanna buy clamps if I don't need something specific. Psyched...

    There’s a tendency for the Tyrolia clamps to hit the slider bolts & this they tell ya to swap out a short screw for the rear heel pieces when mounting a RDX plate like this. Check ur placements.

    Yeah, the first time I helped the race techs for Rossi mount skis in the great white north they didn't tap or glue and my tech brain exploded, now with everything with plates not a big deal.

    yeah I got a set of Atomic double deck FIS womens GS skis thru a local Alpine Canada connection for 199$ and they appear to have previously been mounted with normal binding screws into the foam of the double deck,
