  • RVL8 Receptor Mod

    I didnít know if anyone else had this problem... but, due to how tightly my boots are held in my bindings... I have a helluva time clamping down my toe clip in my receptors... to alleviate this without giving up that locked in control... I made a simple mod:

    I drilled a hole into the end of the toe clip, and then strung some paracord through them, braided it, and attached a small carabiner to the end so I can clip it to my boots buckle. It makes pulling the toe clip up extremely easy, and completely eliminates the chance of pinching a finger!

    Loosen micro bindings one notch. Your boots still should be tight enough.

      Itís strange, one micro adjustment larger and my boot seems to have a little play in it... and where I set it itís SUPER hard to lock on... this was the best solution I could figure. But it works well... and I like custom shit. Lol

          Nice fix! Yeah, Receptors take some force to lock in, and I agree that even one setting slacker can result in a bit of play. I'd rather strain my hands than take a bit of slop (the buckles on my boots can take even more effort to strap down, some days; getting locked down may be my biggest risk of injury .

          It seems like I have to re-adjust my Receptors a notch tighter every so often. I suspect some of this is due to the boot deforming over time, and I know the set I ride most of the time have worn out a bit where the binding bails go through their mounting piece. On cold days, I start speculating about the difference in the coefficient of expansion between boot plastic and the aluminum binding, although I doubt it's big enough to cause an issue.

          I need to keep the right and left bindings at slightly different settings, so my boots must be slightly asymmetrical.

            I still have a few non release set ups, and every now and then I remember that short boards and non release is skibarding in it's purest minimalistic form, but then I remember all those times where I jacked up my knees, or fingers, and even my back, fighting heel bales and toe clips. Life is so much easier now that I get to step in and go, but I do miss the response and feel of a non release.
            Just these, nothing else !

              I had a minor strain in my back from getting in my receptors... this mod has definitely eliminated that problem!!

                I have my cord leash attached to the front lever of my FF Pros, really helps and avoids a separate pull strap. Easier with a non solid lever of course...
