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 :-)

Salomon STH2 WTR 13 bindings 2019 model

​Hi all,

I've seen a few threads regarding the setup of kit. I like to be fully aware of how to use my own kit and can tell others in the community here do as well. This is to avoid the possibility that a shop / tech does it wrong on my behalf (has happened to me twice with kit i knew the correct setup for), to modify for different boots i have, and also to check it periodically during its working life Smile

I recently made a purchase of skis with a set of the Salomon STH2 WTR 13 bindings mounted. I did this from an online shop, that also has a bricks and mortar shop in Scotland. I didn't have my boot to provide them and as a consequence need to set the binding up properly with respect to the following:

1. Toe wing adjustment to grip front of the ski boot - at what point is it set correctly?

2. Toe piece height for boot sole thickness (also modifiable for WTR / Alpine din sole), i read it would be set write if i can just move a standard business card in and out with it being freely moveable, and not shreading it as i move it in or out - would this be correct? I would normally expect there to be little to no vertical play in the toe or heal so as to maintain contact with the contact points under the ski boot??

3. Forward pressure from heal piece (if applicable to the binding) - i know there is a screw adjustment, should it be flush with the housing of the binding heal when the boot is in place and locked in, or is there a tell tail that i should be able to see once the boot is locked in like a hashed marking on the screw neck etc as on previous/other bindings?

The shop have already supplied me with limited info, i.e. where i find the screws to perform the tasks (which i didn't need them to point out....) and they gave an old TGR website link to the previous generation of STH binding heal pieces for the forward pressure setup, which is now different on the STH2 model i think as it is a guardian style heal now with a different track adjustment setup than before as well. Salomon themselves have been spectacularly unhelpful with this matter.

Any help you guys can give will be appreciated.

Great tvm, kind of amazed that Salomon UK would not provide this info...
