DYNAFIT CUSTOM PARTS
Ski mountaineering is an exceptionally hazardous activity which often results in severe injuries and death. Any person purchasing, or using our equipment, assumes the responsibility for seeking proper training in its use. They also assume all risk for injury, or damage, sustained while using any of our equipment. Our equipment is not to be used for any other purpose other than which it is intended. Failure to follow these warnings increase the risk of injury or death. B & D Precision is not, and shall not, be liable for direct, indirect, incidental, or other types of damages arising out of, or resulting from, the use of our products.
Always test your gear before heading to the backcountry!
B & D Ski Gear makes several custom components for Dynafit bindings including top plates, shims, volcanoes, and Nubbins.

Custom Dynafit Products
Nubbins for Radicals
Many people noticed that the Radical heel lifters are not as tall as the Comforts. Our Nubbins, or heel lift extenders, raise the Radical heel riser to the level of the Comfort/Vertical cones. The Nubbin attaches to the heel riser with a set screw.
17gms (0.6 Oz) per set w/screws
Dynafit may refuse to warranty heel units if they feel Nubbins contributed to the heel unit's failure.
Engraving at additional cost.

Ultimate Cuff Pivot Kit
At this time this product is in beta.
These cuff pivots are a savior for boots with a worn out cuff to scaffo (aka shoe) connection. In addition, this kit will allow the pivots to be fully field servicable. Finally, they allow for a friction free, yet rigid, connection between the cuff and scaffo.
The kit comes with hardware for 1 pair of boots. We recommend you purchase the spanner to install the cuff pivot set. While we don't anticipate signficant wear we will also sell the plastic washers separately.
The pivots are designed specifically for the Dynafit TLT 5/6 Performance boots but they may also be used in other ski boots as described in the excellent post at WildSnow.com.
The standard UCP weights 34 grams per boot. The ultralight UCP weighs 17 grams per boot.
While ambitious users can install these at home it is recommended that you have a qualified boot fitter install the pivot. After installation most users should be able to field service them without trouble.
Dynafit Speed Plates
Fits on the TLT and Comfort binding to reduce weight for those looking to save every gram. The stock TLT plates with post weigh 80 gms.
Weigh 20 grams per set
Only available in red.
Speed Plates $21.95
Comfort Top Plate
Weigh 42 grams per set.
Available in black and red.
Note riser cones/volcanoes must be purchased separately.
Black on a Goode
Comfort Plates $24.95
Comfort plate on classic binding.
B & D cones can be added so you can have a comfort style cone on a TLT speed binding or Race T1 bindings (my favorite).
Comfort Style Heel Riser Cones/Volcanoes
Ask and ye shall receive. People have been searching for a viable replacement for the weak Dynafit heel risers for years. After debating the pros and cons we decided to produce a stronger, and lighter heel riser. Our cones are at least 50% stronger than stock Dynafit cones. They will mount onto stock comfort top plates and our custom top plates. They come with screws for mounting.
The short cones are 1/4" shorter.
Weight 19gms (0.7 Oz) per set
The standard cones are the same height as stock cones.
Weight 26gms (0.9 Oz) per set
The tall cones are 1/4" taller.
Weight 33gms (1.2 Oz) per set
Cones are only sold in pairs.
These cones are not a replacement for good technique. Most cones are probably broken due to bad technique, not weakness of the cones. We will not accept any responsibility for damage to your heel unit while using any of our products.
Tech Toe Shims
Our toe shims allow you to reduce the delta angle between your toe and heel piece. While these shims were made with Dynafit bindings in mind, they will work with most Tech bindings. We have three different thicknesses of toe shims. The 1/8" and 3/16" shims are laser cut. The 1/4" shims are machine cut. For each thickness there are two versions. Radical FT/ST version is specific to Dynafit Radical FT and ST model bindings. The classic version is compatible to every other tech binding that we have tried. Look at the charts below to get an idea of the variations in delta angle between different bindings.
Note: All measurements are for comparison purposes only. Height is measured from the pins, not from the boot sole.

Radical FT/ST Version
The picture on the left is a laser cut shim. The picture on the right is a machined 1/4" shim. These mount with a 4 hole pattern. Shims are sold as a set of two.
Note: Not compatible with Radical Speed
The picture on the left is a laser cut shim. The picture on the right is a machined 1/4" shim. Note: These can be mounted with 4 or 5 hole Dynafit patterns.
The picture on the left shows tip extensions. The top picture is for the machined shim. The bottom picture is for the laser cut shims. The picture on the right is a tail extension. Shims and extensions are sold as a set of two.Used on Comfort, vertical ST and Vertical FT.
Note: Compatible with all tech bindings except Radical FT/ST
The extensions are designed to support the plastic tabs present in the bindings below:
- Dynafit Comfort 07 and later
- Dynafit Vertical FT
- Dynafit Vertical ST
Due to variances in boot sole length we do not offer an extension to support the plastic strip connecting the toe and heel units in Dynafit Vertical bindings.
Our shims do not come with screws.
The 19mm screws are for use with Dynafit Radical Speed, Race versions, and Plum bindings. These screws when used with Dynafit Radical FT/ST bindings and 1/8" shims give about 5mm of bite into the ski which may be suficient.
The 28mm screws are for use with Dynafit Radical FT/ST, and Comfort/Vertical bindings.
