Type review

Before choosing the necessary components, it should be carefully examined which types of designs are offered by manufacturers.

Types of ski fasteners for the main characteristics and structure are divided into 2 varieties.

  1. Mechanical. Reliable design used over long years. Easily removed and installed. Carabins for mechanical fasteners are characterized by high cost. Strap for this type of fasteners are made of high-quality rubber or skin. From the disadvantages you can allocate what to relieve them, you have to bend and touch the contamination that are available on the surface of the mounts.

  2. Automatic. Although we give up mechanical fasteners in reliability and durability, but their advantages can be attributed to the budget value and ease of installation. The mechanism is subject to research.

Ski fasteners systems are several types.

  • NN (Nordic Norm). This is one of the very first systems that have been used in Soviet times. The main advantage is the low center of gravity. Nordic 75 system is made of plastic. Such attachments are short-lived, but differ in budget value, ideal for children’s skis. They can be often seen in the rental points. Cost from 250 rubles.

  • NNN (New Nordic Norm). Modern version of the type of Soviet attachment, improved and suitable for all variations of ski boots. Manufacturer Country – Norway, Most Popular Brand – Rottefella. Each mount is equipped with two narrow guides and transverse threads. Suitable for “classics” and skate stroke. Optimal Combination Price – Quality.

  • NIS. The novelty among the fasteners system, which was invented by NNN type in 2005. The system was finalized and equipped with a board, which, in turn, allowed to quickly remove, install the mount, carrying out movement in the longitudinal plane. Suitable for boots developed under the NNN system. Cost from 1000 rubles.

  • SNS (Salomon Nordic System). Manufacturer Country – France. Famous Brand – Salomon. Professional series of fasteners for ski boots. It is equipped with wide guides, located along, in front of which rubber stops are made for better fastening the shoe and eliminate the slip effect. SNS ruler contains 2 categories – Pilot (designed to move the skate stroke) and Profil (designed to move the skate, classic and mixed types of stroke). Such fasteners need to be adjusted.

Tips for choosing

In order to choose high-quality and reliable fastenings for cross-country skis, it is recommended to familiarize yourself with the advice of experienced specialists. Selection is carried out based on a number of characteristics.

  • Choosing a fastening mechanism. Novice on the ski need to choose an automatic block. This is due to the fact that any distance passes in a leisurely mode, and the automatic pads are conveniently removed and installed. There is no risk of injury. For professional athletes, it is recommended to stop the choice on the mechanical form of fastening. It will ensure comfort when moving, ease of operation, will reduce the likelihood of injury, and will significantly help increase speed indicators.

  • Company manufacturer. Most popular both among lovers and among professionals are nnn attachments. It is recommended to purchase fasteners together with boots, which, in turn, are considered universal and are suitable for any type of fasteners.

  • Color fasteners. There are special marks in the form of rubber stops of a certain color. They should pay special attention. So, White Color Means Hard Riding Style, Green – Middle Stiffness Fastening, Black – Standard, Red – Designed for Soft Skating Style.

In many ways, the selection of the fasteners system depends on the cost, manufacturer, quality, physical abilities of the user and skating style. The modern market is filled with all sorts of options, it remains only to make the right choice.

How to install and adjust?

In addition to choosing a certain fastening system, there is also another no less important point – the ability to securely secure, the ability to adjust. Acquired fastening can be delivered independently without contacting specialized centers. Instructions go to the mount, if it follows, the installation process will be easily and careless.

Installation do-it-yourself fixtures are carried out in stages.

  1. Center of gravity. To determine it, ski should be placed on a thin and smooth surface, for example, a ruler. At the same time, it must be located perpendicular and put on the edge. Then it should be moved, prior to the location of the balance point. Ski must “frozen” smoothly parallel to the floor, in this place should be made marker.

  2. Hole markup. To do this, put the mount, so that the front part is at the level of the mark. To mount the boot so that its base is centered. To do this, the markup is initially performed.

  3. Drilling holes. Then the boot is removed, and in its place, in the area of ​​the retainer, the holes for screws are made, preferably a drill.

  4. Treatment of glue. Holes blow up, glue poured in them (it comes in the kit). This manipulation will allow you to avoid cracking after drilling, protects against moisture and reliably fixes screws.

  5. Assembly. Self-tapping screws come into holes. The insert should be done tightly, but it is not recommended to press.

  6. Drying. You can use skis after 10-12 hours.

To avoid errors in installing, you should use simple rules:

  • Do not drill holes for screws through, avoid this will help the drill with the limiter+

  • Do not use the usual glue for plastic skis (only the one that comes in the kit), for wooden skis is allowed to pour a small amount of glue to fix the screws.

Installation of ski fasteners do not require special knowledge, a large amount of free time and a huge set of tools. It should not be forgotten that absolutely all indicators depend on the installation and adjustment – convenience, long service life and reliability of the structure as a whole.
