OK, so is it just the single catch of the binding that reduces the stiffening of the ski flex, and not that the plate itself is able to in a free way bend longitudinally in relation to the ski?


No it's the fact that the plate is not one long strip but that it is 2 pieces and that the binding is held in on spot which allows for the binding to move.

I'ts the entire system that is an upgrade. Ski, plate and binding. Just putting the binding on an old ski isn't going to make a big change because it doesn't work the same way on an old ski.

I am not sure I understand what you mean here. The 2-piece plate already exists with Rottefella's separate Xcelerator plates where the heel part of the binding can move with the ski flex independantly from the toe piece. What do you mean with "held in on spot"?

I meant one spot ;) You'll have to try it next season and see/ determine for yourself

OK, then I see; that was what I tried to say earlier. Yes, I am looking forward to try the binding. I would like to do so also on my roller skis. I have written to Fischer asking them if there will be separate mounting plates available. No answer yet.

There will be a mounting plate for a flat ski.

If you buy a new 2017/18 model year Fischer ski next year, I bet it will come with a Turnamic plate. Therefore the best thing to do would be to put a Turnamic binding on that ski if you already have or plan to purchase NNN boots or Salomon Prolink next year.

If you buy a Fischer or Rossi ski next year it will only come with a Turnamic plate. If you buy either you are going to buy a Turnamic binding to go with it.

Ah, decisions, decisions. New boot soles will also be made to fit the Turnamic system. I think it might be best for anyone needing a new nordic package to wait till next season now...and those that don't care can get some excellent deals on equipment using the 'old' current system
