Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

Marker Brake Compatibility and Drilling Question

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Does anyone know if brakes from Marker Squire bindings are interchangeable with Marker Tour F10s? If so, is it an easy swap? Also, are the mounting holes for the binding likely to be in a different position, given the same sole length boot? I'm wondering if I'd be able to do a straight swap without a re drill.

Thanks in advance.

Interchangeable brakes - just raise the heel lever, remove the two screws & slide the brake forward off the rail.

Different mounting pattern. Tour has a fixed pattern (in two lengths, small or large based upon the bsl range) & it's fore/aft position on the ski is based upon the bsl. The Squire/Griffon/Jester pattern is different at both the toe/heel from the Tour & is mounted to the bsl.

The Tour is a Squire toe/heel on a frame & is only slightly heavier & a bit taller (but no taller than the average rail mounted binding) so there's no real benefit to be had from swapping to a Squire.

@element, do a google on "binding templates".

You should end up with

there is a squire plate and a Tour plate on the site as seperate pdf's, just download, re-size to actual, then check holes on the plates...... should work if you do it right

@spyderjon, thanks for the detailed response - I've Squires on the skis at the minute and I'm swapping to a Tour to open up some ascending options.

@skimastaaah, thanks for that, I'll check it out and see if I'm brave/stupid enough to get the drill out.
