Click-Clack designer Stefano pointed out that I had the Inox Plate mounted in the wrong position in the photos. I fixed this morning by swapping new images, and added text about the Inox Plate and associated issues. Turns out the Inox Plate is not designed to prevent rotation of the binding in high-lift mode, but rather when using the binding in low and medium lift mode. To see the full review scroll down, or use this permalink.
Another issue: we’ve enjoyed learning how to change our Dynafits from alpine to tour mode on the fly, without getting out of the binding (by twisting the heel unit while pulling up the heel). It appears this is difficult to do this with the Click-Clack, though we might be missing something. Stay tuned.
|Inox Plate is only compatible with the TLT binding at shown at the bottom of this photo. The Ti model (shown in middle of photo) has no baseplate with necessary screw holes, and the Comfort model (shown at top) is problematic because the brake blocks side access to the baseplate, and without the brake installed there are no screw holes to use anyway (though it’s possible the necessary holes could be drilled in the Comfort baseplate.) Thanks goes to Andrew for the nice composite photo.|
