Rottefella Adjusts — but Only Some Things

by Magnus Johansson

Norwegian World Cup dominant binding producer Rottefella has adjusted the mounting template for its screw mounted bindings by moving the pin line 2 mm forward. This is for compensating the slight tail-heavyness that results from the circumstance that the binding adds more weight behind pin line  (and balance point) than in front of it. However, Rottefella chooses not to adjust the mounting recommendations for Excelerator NIS plates despite the fact that those move the balance point further backwards than the screw mounted bindings do.

I am developing a universal mounting template that will take these balance point shifts into consideration. More about that later.
