Re: R8 binding style on Kom ? Photos

Ok you bunch of Thomas LOL Here are some pictures: —difference in toe piece between the old R8 and the newer one... well not much! The last one is thicker (because of the plastic plate); in my memory, the newer one was longer... Rotte0.jpg —here is the elusive cartridge (even Rotte wouldn't sh*t abo...

Re: R8 binding style on Kom ?

Well, a sort of deduction; if blue is soft and red is stiff... transparent and black? They sound like they are in the middle of the road. What else? They could be the same as the stiff ones (?)...We'd have to do a test in n/cm... The girl at Rotte actually could not answer my question.

Re: R8 binding style on Kom ?

Astie, moi ça m'embête pas du tout. La citation dit que c'est embêtant et que la chose n'a pas été vraiment clarifiée. Putain, va falloir que je fasse des photos? La dame, même si elle était à l'emploi de Rottefella (depuis combien de mois?) ne savait pas à quoi je faisais référence... (Par exemple,...

Re: R8 binding style on Kom ?

The other thing to consider is the cartridge; blue tab, clear one or red (like in your picture). I wouldn't tour with a red one, not even with the clear one... I guess the blue ones *could* be alright. My point is: if you already have it, go for it! If not, and you need to buy it, there is better o...

Re: R8 binding style on Kom ?

Yes of course, I know the R4 (with cables)... Actually, this one would be better! Les stiff at least... No, I am talking about the old R8 (hardwire, silver cartridge with «Rottefella» written on it, black and silver toe piece—similar to chili...) vs the newer one, with a different toe piece (stronge...

Re: R8 binding style on Kom ?

I don't know... a little discordance here. I have a couple pairs of these. I guess the earlier version (black and silver) is a little less stiff because of the smaller toe piece... I wouldn't compare them to the old red chili. Even with the Voile HW (no pin) with the smooth cartridge and the sort of...

Re: Voile Traverse riser

Ok, but I want to swap bindings once in a while; inserts could be a good thing...
