MAINTENANCE REPAIRS

SKI MAINTENANCE Good ski maintenance is just as important for the recreational skier as for the racer. A fine-tuned ski lasts longer. A well-prepared ski turns better, grips the snow better and glides better on all types of snow. The ski tune-up involves three steps: 1. Daily check-up - at the end of everyday of skiing. 2. Machine tuning - for quick work. 3. C omplete hand tuning - for skier’s specific needs.

MACHINE TUNING SKI CHECK-UP - Visually check to determine what needs to be tuned. - Remove major deep scratches on edges with whetstone. - Remove any traces of wax or grease.

FILL IN ANY HOLES IN THE BASE Depending on the conditions of the base and materials available: a) Grind entire base surface (photo 1). b) Fill-in scratches with base repair material. c) Repair any large damaged areas with base patch/die.

1

CHECK-UP - Visually check to see if any rust has developed on the edges. - Remove any traces with fine, 220-230 grit sandpaper. - If necessary, sharpen and polish edges using sandpaper wrapped around a file. - Clean the base and wax with Swix wax.

STONE GRINDING For Prolink skis, install the Binding-Bridge kit according to the ‘Maintenance specifics’ paragraph.

A) SURFACE SMOOTHING – Place the skis on a flat surface. – Eliminate any excess polyethylene on the base with a hand base plane to decrease the risks of contaminating the stone.

B) SEMI FINISHING – Stone grind until the base becomes flat and glossy. – Avoid overheating and use of a dirty stone (lengthwise streaks on base are from stone contaminant). - Dress the stone regularly to keep it in good condition (when using a belt grinding machine: use 80 grit belt).

C) FINISHING (PHOTO 2) 2

- Stone grind to obtain a fine structure (when using a belt grinding machine: use 150 grit belt). - Do not use a dirty stone which creates fluff/hair.

D) BEVELED/RECESSED FINISHING For skis with beveled/recessed finishing, we recommend a straight, fine stoneground structured base.

Note: always make the last run in this direc­tion : Tip–Tail. Concerning the machine parame­ ters, please consult the machine manufacturer. 7

SKI

MAINTENANCE REPAIRS

EDGE FINISHING We recommend grinding the edges with a cup grinding disc see if the edge becomes rounded (by losing grip). - Check the angle adjustment beforehand.

Base side Perf on piste: 1° Standard on piste & others: 1,3° - 1,5° ■ If ■ If

- Smooth (detuning) the edges by hand with a soft stone (photo A1) or Scotch Brite® (photo A2).

A1

A2

Lateral side Target value: 2° - 2,5° (all skis)

> 2° ➞ it reduces and delays the edge grip < 1° ➞ very direct and aggressive edge grip

- Make sure all burrs are removed and smooth down again, if necessary. FOR NON EQUIPPED RETAILERS THEY CAN DO A CLASSIC TUNING. Lateral finish (photo B1):

B1

OFF SET POLISHING If possible, a 0,1 mm off set is recommended on the base side ▼

- Lateral finishing with lubricated 220 belt (or use the smallest grit possible). - Pass over the edges 1-2 times depending on the condition of the edges. - A double sided sharpener will maintain the ski’s proper side cut. Base side finishing (photo B2): - For a performance preparation, polish the base edge with a polishing stone or whetstone to eliminate any marks on the edges.

B2

> Advantage: The off set makes the ski extremely easy to turn - Make sure the stones are well lubricated. - Make sure the edges are not burnt (brown color). - Check the tuning lengths. Here below the starting & ending of the tuning depending on the type of the ski (standard shapes or with rocker shapes). ▼

- Remove burrs and polish edges with a lubricated Scotch Brite® belt machine at a low speed (photo B3).

B3

- Be careful to lubricate sufficiently to avoid burning the base. - Carefully remove all burrs with a soft stone. - Quickly wipe the ski to avoid staining from the dried lubricant. A well-sharpened ski is always sharper underfoot than at the extremities of the ski. 8

Base finishing

BASE FINISHING SPECIFICATION If the base is damaged, it must be grinded after the repair work. The structure should be smooth. IN ORDER TO GET THE BEST ON THE SNOW, THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF STONE GRINDING STRUCTURATIONS.  For a majority of the range, a standard base finishing is recommended: - Roughness : Ra 2 – 4 µm - No visible and specific structure (Photo C1)

- It’s best to use melted wax. - Clean the base thoroughly. - Make sure the iron is set at the appropriate temperature so that only the wax is melted. (Temperature 110 °C +/- 5 oC or 230 °F +/- 10 °F). Excess heat (above 120 °C or 248 °F) can be harmful to both wax and ski, and can even cause permanent loss of glide qualities in the base. - C hoose a wax according to the wax manu­facturer’s recommendations. - Melt the selected wax over the entire length of the base, and let the wax cool to room temperature.

B) SCRAPING (photo D2) D2

This standard finishing is working in most of snow conditions.

C1

C2

C3

- Remove the excess wax with a plastic scraper from tip to tail to leave only a very thin layer. - Remove wax from the base groove and ski edges as well.

C) BRUSHING (photo D3) D3



For High performance models (SL, GS, DH) a specific stone grinding structure can be used, depending on the ski category (Photos C2 & C3). - Roughness: Ra 5 – 8 µm

Note: A too strong structure (in term of roughness) will degrade the behavior. IMPORTANT: The base and steel edge finishing should be carried out by trained personnel.

- Brush the base with a nylon brush (or other type depending on the structure desired) working from tip to tail. - A rotating brush removes the structure of the base for good glide. Strap the skis together. Position the straps at the base contact points. Note: The skis can be stored ready-waxed (unscraped) for an extended period of time (e.g. between ski seasons). 9

MAINTENANCE REPAIRS

HAND TUNING Tools: - Square - 20 cm (8 inch) file - Whetstone - Soft stone - Scrapers - Brushes - Scotchbrite® - Sandpaper (220-320 grit) - Central holding vise - Swix wax A true bar is the basic tool for checking and assessing: - ski base flatness, - that the edge is slightly recessed from the base, - the extent of base scratches and appropriate repair. The edge angle checking tool is used to verify that the edge has an angle of 90°.

SKI CHECK-UP - Check the base and edges of your skis with a true bar. - If repairs are necessary, see instructions below.

SMOOTHING THE BASE AND EDGES Classic finish: If damage is only minor, use a file to tune ; otherwise the ski must be tuned on a machine. Beveled/Recessed finish: the recommended bevel is between 1° and 1.5°.

EDGE SHARPENING - Sharpen base edges. - Sharpen side edges. On classic finish: make sure the edges are at 90°. On Beveled/Recessed finish: make sure that the beveled and recessed edge angle is between 1° and 1.5°. - Round off the tip and tail slightly. - Remove any burrs with soft stone or Scotchbrite®.

POLISHING THE EDGES Polish the edges with a whetstone, starting first on the base and then the sides.

DE-TUNING THE EDGE ANGLE AT THE EXTREMITIES WAXING, SCRAPING AND BRUSHING Follow the same instructions as in machine tuning. Important: After all finishing operations (by hand or machine) it is essential to remove any burrs from edges and to polish the edges to ensure good ski performance.

10

CLEANING THE SKIS Pressurized cleaners are prohibited, as well as the following solvents: › Acetone › 95° alcohol (due to risk of damaging the cosmetics of the top surface of the ski).

MAINTENANCE SPECIFICS Tuning skis with prolink on automatically programmable machines and machines with a lead: To be able to tune skis with the Y and V prolink, we have developed a specific tuning kit in cooperation with the Wintersteiger company. This new Prolink adapter can be mounted on the adjustable Wintersteiger bridge (ref. 2000: 7217-0111-V01) and is available at Wintersteiger under the reference 7217-0111- V05.

SKI

MAINTENANCE REPAIRS

REPAIRING THE SURFACE OF THE SKI There are two methods for repairing the ski surface: 1) “One colored” paste + Araldite® 2)  “Multi colored” Araldite® + white + coloring Materials needed: - Araldite® 2011, - Araldite® gun 50 ml, - Araldite® coloring paste for smooth color (DW 0131 White, DW 0133 Red, DW 0137 Black, DW 0132 Yellow, DW 0134 Green, DW 0135 Blue), - White paste for undercoating for decoration (DW 0131 White), - Felt pen to color the design, type 3 points, per­manent (Ref: Pantone 87828 - color number). Accessories: - Cutter, - Adhesive tape, - Towel, - Sand paper, Grain 600. Repair process: 1.  With a cutter, outline the area to be repaired, then cut the top surface (photo A1). 2.  Result after cutting the top surface (photo A2). 3.  With a cutter, score area to repair (fibers) to improve bonding (photos A3). 4.  To protect top surface, put adhesive tape around the area to repair (photo A4). 5.  Prepare Araldite® resin with gun. 6.  Which type of repair to choose: a) One-color surface repair b) Multicolored surface repair 7.  Add a small quantity of coloring paste to the Araldite® resin. Gently mix (in order to avoid bubbles) to obtain a homogeneous mixture. Add a small quantity of coloring paste (White DW 0131) to the Araldite® resin. White paste is used as a primer in order to have the desired colors afterwards. Gently mix (in order to avoid bubbles) to obtain a homogeneous mixture (photo A5). 8.  Apply thicker than top surface of the ski in the areas to be filled. Wait a few moments to eliminate bubbles if necessary (photo A6). 9.  Put adhesive tape on the area to avoid running. Let it dry for 12 hours (photo A7). 10.After 12 hours of drying, remove the adhesive tape from the mixture. Do not remove the adhesive tape around the area which protects the top surface from scratches. Use the flat side of a cutter to scrape off the excess mixture (photo A8). 11. Smooth it down with 600 grain sand paper. Remove the adhesive tape (photo A9). 12.Finish sanding gently in order to obtain a smooth surface. Be careful of the ski’s decor/cosmetics.

HOW TO CREATE A DECORATION

THE TPP TOP SURFACE

13. For the coloring stage, do not try creating tone on tone to create the exact color of the ski. Trying to reproduce a motif of the ski design already present elsewhere is better and easier. The final layer of Araldite® tends to lighten colors (photo A10).

All the adult and Rental models are protected by the TPP (Transparent Polyamide Protection). Regarding the Junior models, they are protected by TP (Transparent Protection). The transparent tops cover the cosmetics underneath, which guarantees the durability of the cosmetics.

A10

BASE REPAIRS › Superficial scratches: Machine tuning will make the scratch disappear (see the ski maintenance repair). › Not very deep scratches or marks to be filled by machine: - Pour the polyethylene. - Wait 10 minutes for the material to harden. - Remove the excess polyethylene with a steel spatula for a flat surface. - Proceed with machine tuning.

14. Use the Araldite® gun for a varnish finish which will protect the ski surface from cuts from the edges. A small quantity of Araldite® is sufficient. 15. Apply a fine layer of Araldite® with a cutter to avoid excessive thickness (photo A11).

A11

16. Using a dust-free cloth, wipe off the excess Araldite® to obtain a smooth, even surface. Let it dry for 30 minutes. The repair is finished (photo A12).

REPAIR PROCESS: 1. Verify that the ski can be repaired. 2. Remove the binding and clean the ski. 3. Check the length of the edge to be replaced (fig. 1). Cut out the base where the edge must be changed (10 mm beyond) with the base patch die or cutter (in this case, make a reproducible cut-out) (fig. 2). 4. Cut the 2 sides of edges between two wings with 45° angle, as illustrated. 5. Cut out the edge carefully with cutter or wood chisel, then roughen the area with 80 grit sandpaper (fig. 3). 6. Cut the new edge, trim it and remove the grease. 7. Place the new edge and screw 2 wings near the tip. Wedge in place in order to maintain a good profile and keep the edge horizontal (fig. 4). 8. A pply epoxy to affected area and heat slightly with heat gun, concentrating on each wing. 9. Put plastic over cut out area and insert piece of new base material. 10. Cover the affected area with mold release paper and place ski in heat press (fig. 5). 11. When the epoxy has cured, remove the ski from the heat press and remove base patch and plastic film. 12. Reapply epoxy to the affected area. 13. Carefully insert piece of base material into cut-out area. 14. Cover affected area with mold release paper and place ski in heat press. 15. When the epoxy has cured, remove the ski from the heat press. 16. Grind base and edge locally. 17. Plane patch area to obtain proper geometry with base plane or file. 18.  Repair any damage to top layer with a mixture of epoxy and colorant. 19. Tune and wax the ski.

MOUNTING MOUNTING BINDINGS 1. Remove shrink wrap from skis. 2. Drill the skis using the appropriate jig and drill bit as shown in the chart opposite. Make sure that the jig is parallel to the ski during the entire drilling process (fig.1). 3. Follow the ski and binding manufacturers’ mounting instructions closely. It is necessary to use Salomon glue or Epoxy.

SELECTING AND USING THE JIG The main function of a jig is to insure that all holes for mounting the binding are drilled in the correct location. See chart to select the proper jig. 1. Check that you have everything you need (the jig that corresponds to the binding, the right skis, the right boots). 2. Open the locking lever. 3. O pen the jig by twisting both handles inward. Place the jig in the right direction on the ski. 4. Place the jig on the ski and make sure that the jig remains properly aligned to the ski during the entire drilling operation (fig.1). - If the ski has a mid-sole mark, line up the mid-sole indicator on the jig with the midsole mark on the ski (fig.2). - If the ski has a tip-of-the-boot mark, line up the tip-of-boot-sole indicator on the jig with the tip-of-boot mark on the ski. - If the ski has no visible markings for jig location, consult the ski manufacturer for proper mounting position. 5. Once the jig is well-positioned on the ski, it is important to adjust the jig to the correct boot length to make sure the heel piece is in the proper position.

DRILLING 1. Follow the recommendations of the ski manu­ facturer for drilling and tapping. When in doubt about the ski’s core composition, select a 3.6 mm diameter bit, and drill one hole to see if any metal comes in contact with the bit. If contact is made with metal, re-drill with a 4.1 mm bit. 2. Drill through the jig’s proper bushings applying moderate downward pressure on the drill. Make sure that the countersink bevel on the drill bit has properly deburred the hole. 3. After drilling, turn the ski over and hit the base several times with the palm of your hand to remove any debris from the drilled holes.

DRILLING JUNIOR SKIS - Use an 8 mm length drill bit to mount the Junior bindings L 7 – L 7 SR – T 5 – T 5 SC & SR - C 5 C 5 SR – Easytrak L7 & C5. - Whenever junior bindings are mounted on adult skis, there is an increased possibility for binding pull-out due to poor screw retention. The penetration depth of junior screws into the ski core is only 6 mm. If necessary, use adult screws and drill bits to penetrate any mounting platform. (For bindings mounted with adult binding screws, the penetration depth is the same.) - You must drill a hole deep enough to accommodate the screw length you are using or damage to the ski base may result.

TAPPING

GLUE

MOUNTING

Tapping is usually done when the binding screw will come into contact with metal or in the following cases: - the material is too hard for a screw, - when the screw insertion would distort or stress the material holding the screw, - when recommended by the ski manufacturer. Failing to tap when necessary can result in top skin or sidewall delamination, broken screws or damage to the ski core.

Glue must be used when inserting binding screws to: - lubricate the screw during insertion, - create a watertight seal. Place a drop of glue on the surface of each hole. Caution: Salomon strongly recommends its own glue for Salomon skis.

Follow the mounting procedure and also refer to the section “Special cases in mounting”. A Posidrive® n°3 screwdriver, not a Phillips, must be used to mount Salomon bindings. Consult the Salomon Spare Parts Catalog for reference on Salomon screws. Caution: if a power screwdriver is used, adjust the clutch for the appropriate ski core cons­ truction (4 Nm maximum) to avoid stripping the threads. It is advisable to hand check each screw after mounting.

To use a Salomon tap and brace: 1.  Position the brace so that the tap goes straight into the drilled hole. 2. Apply only enough pressure on the brace to start the tap. The tap is a self-cutting tool and you have only to turn the brace for the tap to cut its own way into the core. 3. Make 3 1/2 turns. 4. After tapping, turn the ski over and hit the base several times with the palm of your hand to remove any shavings from the hole.

The reversible pads allow the jig to adapt to different ski widths (fig. 1). Procedure for changing the pads to the other side: 1. Pull the pad off the arm of the jig. 2. Change the pad to the desired position. 3. Insert the pad into the arm of the jig. 4. Repeat this procedure: - On the other 3 arms for mounting the bindings symmetrically.

ADJUSTING Once the binding has been mounted, it is necessary to make the proper binding-to-boot adjustments. All Salomon bindings may be closed manually by simply lifting the heel lever. Adjustments must be re-checked every time boots are changed. Use the following procedure.

WING ADJUSTMENT 1. Manual adjustment (fig. A1): only one adjust­ment screw, which is located on the left side of the toe piece. - Place the boot in the binding (closed position). - Loosen the micrometric screws to loosen the wings. - Check that the tip of the boot sole is flush against the butt plate (fig. A2). This contact is made when the boot has lateral play. Do not over tighten, the boot may no longer be centered. 2. Automatic adjustment: the wings on the toe cup are self-adjusting.

TOE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT - With the boot in the binding, raise the toe by turning the adjustment screw, located on top of the toe piece, counter clockwise. - Pull the boot back to create a gap between the boot sole and the binding AFD. - Lower the toe height by turning the adjust­ment screw clockwise to obtain the recommended gap (see the following chart (fig. B1-B2). - For models with automatic wing and automatic height adjustments: make forward pressure adjustment only. See instructions in following chapteras. Note: Always check the forward pressure after making toe adjustments.

ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE The release setting adjustment is obtained by using the adjustment cap or adjustment screws. The release setting is visible on the indicator. Adjust the toe piece and heel piece to the same settings. It is highly recommended to use a measuring device to check the release torque (see ISO 11088). Release value selection and adjustment The release settings must be used by the tech­ nician to determine the appropriate adjustment for each skier, which conforms to the following norms: ISO 11088, ASTM F 939, ASTM F 1063, and AFNOR FD S 52-448 (documentation fascicle).

SKIER CLASSIFICATION This classification has to be determined by a dialogue between the skier and dealer, which helps to take into account the diverse factors that influence the adjustment. These factors are explained in the norms cited above. › Type I skiers: - Ski conservatively. - Prefer slower speeds. - Ski on easy to moderate slopes. - Intermediate level, but not in good physical condition. 44

- Good skiers, smooth and supple style, empha­ sizing safety. - Favor lower than average release/retention settings. This corresponds to an increased risk of inadvertent binding release in order to gain increased release capacity in a fall. › Type II skiers: - Intermediate skiers in good physical condition. - Prefer a variety of speeds. - Ski on varied terrain, including most difficult trails. - All skiers who do not meet all the descriptions of the other skier types. › Type III skiers: - Ski aggressively. - Normally ski at high speeds. - Prefer moderate to steep terrain. - Favor higher than average release/retention settings. This corresponds to decreased capability to release in a fall in order to decrease risk of inadvertent binding release. - Type 3 settings should not be used by skiers of less than 22 kg.

OTHERS SKIERS TYPE › Type I— skiers: - Skiers looking for a lower release setting than type 1.

- Recommended for beginners over 25 years old. › Type III+ skiers: - Very strong skiers, on challenging terrain. - Skiers looking for a higher release setting than type 3 skiers. Skier type does not have the same meaning as skier ability. For instance, an advanced skier who skis all-terrain, but is not particularly aggressive, may be able to use Type 2 settings.

ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE 1. Find the skier’s code in chart 1. Locate the skier’s weight in the first column and the skier’s height in the second column. If the skier’s weight and height are not on the same row, select the skier’s code on the highest row. 2. This skier code is appropriate for Type 1 skiers. For Type I— skiers: move up one row. For Type II skiers: move down one row towards the bottom of the chart. For Type III skiers: move down two rows on the chart. For Type III+ skiers: move down three rows on the chart. >>>

BINDING

RETAIL

> > > 3. For skiers who are 50 years or older, or un-

der 10 years: move up one row on the chart. - For skiers weight 13 Kg and under, no further correction is appropriated. - For skiers weight 17 Kg and under, type 1- skier is inappropriated. 4. A fter having determined the skier code, locate the column in chart 2 that represents the skier’s boot sole length (in mm).

5. The box at the intersection of the skier’s boot sole length column and the skier’s code row, shows the initial indicator setting for the skier. Adjust both toe pieces and heel pieces accordingly. 6. C aution: If the box at the intersection of the skier’s boot sole length column and the skier’s code row is empty, move horizontally on the same row and use the closest indicator setting.

7. If it is obvious that the bindings release inadvertently (unnecessarily), at the request of the skier, the dealer can: - A t first, increase the level in the forward fall, that is, on the heel piece. - Then, only if the inadvertent releases persist, increase the level in torsion, that is, on the toe piece. Proceed very progres­s ively in stages of half-points.

FINAL CHECKING VISUAL AND MECHANICAL INSPECTIONS A Salomon certified technician must sign or initial the Workshop form indicating that all systems inspections have been performed.

A final check is your quality control measure to verify that all required procedures have been properly completed and involves the following steps:

1. Visual inspection of system components. 2. Test for elastic travel and return. 3. Release value within specified range and boot-binding compatibility.

VISUAL INSPECTION OF SYSTEM COMPONENTS TROUBLESHOOTING PROCEDURE After the bindings have been properly mounted and adjusted, visually inspect the ski/boot/ binding system. › The boot: Check: - for gross irregularities where the boot contacts the binding and the AFD (deformation, wear,...), - that the boot conforms to the norm (DIN, ISO or ASTM markings). If the boots are not marked, check with the supplier. These bindings are not designed to function with boots that do not conform to the norm. - that the boot has not started to crack or break. The boot toe Check for the absence of: - rubber and/or metal tip protectors - mold flashings - a ramp or bevel in front of the AFD area - grid pattern or tread in the AFD area - excessive wear - a toe sole extension with corner radius of less than 7 mm - asymmetrical shape of the toe sole. The boot heel Check for: - debris lodged in the sole - scraped or improperly canted boot sole - cut-outs in the heel sole that catch on the entry pedal - cut-outs in the sole that impede proper brake function. Note: If you are uncertain of boot compa­ tibility, perform the ‘Clean vs Lubricated’ test. Boots that fail this test or violate any of the above points should not be used with any Salomon binding.

› The ski: Check for: - mounting screws protruding through the base - delaminated sidewall. This can be detected by running your fingers along the sides of the ski. - base plate flush with ski surface - delaminated topskin - pre-drilled holes. Bindings shoul d not be installed on skis that have already been drilled for three or more sets of bindings. › The binding: The toe piece Check for: - stripped, loose or missing screws - condition and location of the AFD (ripped, loose, imbedded dirt, boot sole pattern, tread imprint, etc) - condition of anti-friction inserts (where applicable) - missing or unreadable adjustment indicators and missing windows - bent or broken base plate, principal axis or housing - stripped or jammed toe height and cup adjustment screws - jammed release adjustment - other visible wear.

The ski brake Check for: - improper installation - broken entry pedals - bent brakearms - strength of ski brake A brake must not compress totally when the ski is set on a flat surface. - other visible wear - proper position of brakes They shouldn’t touch the ski while they are functioning (especially on fat skis). The complete system Place the boot in the binding and check the accuracy of: - toe height adjustment (if applicable) - toe cup width adjustment (if applicable) - forward pressure adjustment - release adjustment settings - symmetrical mounting of bindings to ski center line (+/- 1 mm) This should be in the same location on both skis. If you discover a correctable problem, repair the problem and re-test. If the system still falls outside the “in-Use range”, perform the ‘Clean vs Lubricated’ test.

The heel piece Check for: - stripped, loose or missing screws - improperly installed brake - defective heel track - bent or broken base plate, track or heel guide - missing Delrin inserts in the heel guide - jammed release adjustment - unreadable indicators - other visible wear. 45

TEST FOR ELASTIC TRAVEL AND RETURN › Laterally (fig. 1): Secure the ski. Hit the forefoot area of the boot with a rubber hammer. Use sufficient force to move the boot off-center, but not hard enough to release the system. The boot should move off-center at least 5 mm and return to center within 2 mm of its original position.

1 2

› Vertically (fig. 2): Put the boot in the binding, depress the heel lever while pulling forward on the upper cuff of the boot until the boot heel lifts at least 5 mm. Release both hands simultaneously. The boot should go back in place quickly and smoothly. This check can be performed either manually or by using a mechanical device. If a measuring device is used, follow the recommendations of the test device manufacturer for proper procedure.

RELEASE VALUE WITHIN SPECIFIED RANGE AND BOOT/BINDING COMPATIBILITY 3

extremes of the inspection range, you may have an installation error or incompatible boot. Troubleshoot the system and re-test after the problem has been corrected. › Test the heel: First, exercise the heel by releasing it once. Using a test device, measure and record the heel release value. The middle quantitative value of three heel re­leases should fall within the +/- 15% “inspection range”.

Testing of release values with a test device is recommended (fig. 3). If a test device is not used, the skier should be informed. In addition, the skier must be warned about the risk of possible breakage of boots and bindings that have been subjected to shocks or abnormal stress. › Test the toe: First, exercise the toe by releasing it once in each direction. Then, using test device, measure and record the twist release value in each direction. The measured release value should be considered to be the middle quantitative value of three measured releases. If the first two measured values are the same, there is no need to take a third measurement. See examples of middle quantitative values (Chart. 1). The toe passes this inspection if the middle quantitative values in both directions fall within the ‘Inspection range’. See sample “System inspection ranges” (Chart. 2). Symmetry test note You should be aware of the possibility of an asymmetric release. If your tested values for clockwise and counterclockwise release appear to be at opposite 46

› Release value verification - failure: When the technician is satisfied that all required procedures have been completed according to Salomon’s recommendations in this manual, he or she must sign the Workshop Form. (The signing technician must currently be certified by Salomon.) Note: During manufacturing, Salomon precision tests every binding up to 5 times to assure that it functions properly and is calibrated correctly. It is extremely rare that a new component would be out of calibration unless there is damage. › Troubleshooting: Boot/binding systems wear with time. Mechanical inspection allows you to identify when the ski/ boot/binding system is not working as it was originally intended. Readjustment of the binding is not a sign of malfunction, but can be a sign of normal wear. › Test for lateral travel - failure: Re-check all binding-to-boot adjustments. Re-inspect the boot and the binding according to the Visual Inspection criteria. If the boot is dirty, clean the sole with a solution of soap and water. If the binding is dirty, clean it according to the procedures described in this chapter under ‘Maintenance’. Re-test the system for elastic travel and return. › Test for vertical elastic travel - failure: Clean the boot sole of any snow, dirt or debris. Check for excessive wear at the boot heel. Repair or replace any non-DIN boot.

Check that the boot enters the binding correctly. Align the boot with toe and heel cups and re-insert the boot. Check the release setting. It should not exceed the minimum or maximum visual indicator setting and should be set appropriately for the skier. If the measured +/- Mz and My values are located outside of the +/- 15% inspection range, consult the manufacturer’s instructions for procedures concerning malfunctions. If after this procedure, the measured values are within the readjustment range of +/-30%, the binding can be readjusted. These readjustments should allow you to obtain measured values as close as possible to the selected individual release torque within the +/- 15% range. If the release is still outside the +/- 30% readjustment range after having followed the procedures for malfunctions, do not readjust the binding unless it is specifically authorized by the manufacturer (chart. 1).

Determine the measured release value in the ski/ boot/binding system after lubricating all contact points between the boot and binding with a lubricant specified by the manufacturer. If nothing particular is specified, use soap and water. 3. Calculate the ratio between the two tests by dividing the result with the lubricant by the result without it. 4. If the quotient is above 1.2 or under 0.8, the system is considered to be incompatible. If the boot test result is a satisfactory +/- 30%, but the binding does not release within the ‘readjustment tolerance’ range, check the calibration of the adjustment machine. Have another technician redo the test. If the system still falls outside the range, the binding should not be used.

MOUNTING The five steps to follow for mounting and adjusting rental bindings are the following: 1. Preparation 2. Installation 3. Binding to boot adjustments 4. Release value adjustment 5. Rental visual and mechanical inspections.

The Rental products are usually intended to remain under the control of the Certified Rental Dealer. Therefore, they can be shipped without instructions or individual packaging. However, if these products are in fact sold, you absolutely have to supply your customer with the

appropriate instructions. Upon request, Salomon will supply you with a document containing important information.

PREPARATION It is important to maintain consistent procedures when mounting any Salomon binding. Any boot used with a Salomon rental binding must be visually inspected for compatibility. To use the Synchrosysteme you need: - Synchrosysteme jig references 001003 and 001040. - adjustment tool reference 000902.

The bindings that are compatible with the Synchrosysteme are the following: Z12 SC. Z10 SC. L10 SC. L 9 SC. L10 SR. L7 SC. L7 SR. T5 SC. C5 SR. The Synchrosysteme can be used with all standardized boots (AFTM, DIN, ISO) from all brands. The measuring device can be used if skiers come in the shop with their boots on.

› Binding to boot adjustments without using the Synchrosysteme: Easy glide manual heel adjustment: - Position the boot in the toe piece. - With one finger, simply lift the adjustment loop at the back of the heel and slide it forward until the binding cup contacts the boot heel. - Release the loop, push boot down and check the forward pressure adjustment. To do this, you should see a little metal guide in the indicator (fig. A). Note: If a correction is necessary, reopen the heel to move it and then re-check.

Proper maintenance of rental systems includes a complete inspection of the entire rental inventory prior to the ski season. This should be followed by periodic in-season inspections to help ensure that all components are functioning correctly. › Pre-season: 1. Visually inspect and clean all equipment in inventory. 2. Test all bindings using selected reference boots and a mechanical testing device. 3. Test a sampling of boots in inventory using selected reference bindings and a mechanical testing device. › In-season: 1. At specified intervals, select samples from inventory to be tested. 2. Inspect visually using the same procedures that apply to pre-season. › End of season: To prepare the rental equipment for summer storage, lower all the binding release adjust­ments to the minimum. Close the binding heel pieces.

› Wing adjustment: Follow the procedure. › Rental toe height adjustment: Follow the procedure. › Release value adjustment: All Salomon rental bindings must be adjusted by using the Adjustment chart. › Rental visual and mechanical inspection: Whenever a binding looks particularly dirty or if visual inspection reveals that something may be wrong with the system, the system should be cleaned, lubricated and subjected to mechanical inspection.

Visually inspect, clean, repair and lubricate each rental system: 1. To remove the heel, slide the housing backward off the track. 2. Clean the track with a damp rag or cloth. Do not use solvents, hot water or pressurized water to clean bindings. Solvents may cause permanent damage to the plastic structure by dangerously modifying the products’ technical characteristics. The markings can also be erased. 3. Wipe any dirt from the underside of the heel housing and from the area under the open heel cup. 4. Apply Salomon grease (reference 000905) sparingly to the underside of the heel housing, the heel track and the area under the open heel cup. 5. Replace the heel on the track. 6. The brake is removable to facilitate ski maintenance. 7. Store in a cool, dark, ventilated place.

INSPECTION AID FOR APPLICATION OF ISO 13993 concerning - rental ski shop practice - sampling and inspection of complete and in­com­­plete alpine ski-binding-boot systems in rental applications (this supplement does not replace ISO 13993). To keep your rental equipment in good condition while minimizing liability we recommend the following program (this comes out of the ISO 13993 standard).

RENTAL INSPECTION SUMMARY Since it is impractical to perform a full inspection each time a system is rented, a routine of preseason and inseason inspections has been developed to verify release indicator accuracy, confirm correct equipment function, and assure proper assembly and adjustment procedures by the rental shop staff. Fully implemented, the procedures that follow provide rental shop customers a standard of care equivalent to that provided retail shop customers under current ISO and ASTM standards.

PRESEASON INSPECTION Preseason inspections are performed on components of the release system: bindings and boots. All rental bindings, new and used, are visually inspected, and then tested using specially selected Reference Boots. Bindings that fail go through a troubleshooting procedure to identify and correct the deviation or malfunction. If this procedure does not correct the problem, the binding is removed from inventory. All rental boots, new and used, are visually inspected for damage, wear, contamination, broken or missing parts, or inferior materials at contact points with the binding. In addition, one boot per ‘cell’ is tested for boots that are new to the rental inventory. A cell is all boots of the same make, model, age, and shell size. A random selection of 5% of all boots, previously accepted into inventory, is also tested. Tests are performed with a test device and a pair of specially selected reference bindings. If a boot fails, all boots from that cell are then tested. Boots that fail and cannot be repaired are removed from inventory.

INSEASON INSPECTION Inseason inspections are performed on complete rental systems to ensure that the equipment is adjusted appropriately and continues to function correctly. Typically 5% of the rental inventory is tested during each two weeks sampling period. The random sample is equally divided between equipment that is available for rental and equipment that has just been rented. The equipment in the ‘as rented’ category is from real skiers in the condition in which it is either dispatched or returned, while the ‘available for rental’ equipment may be set up for fictitious skiers. Only single skis, not pairs, are tested, and testing at the toe is only required in one direction. A count is maintained of test results which exceed allowable limits. The magnitude and frequency of these deviations determines the frequency of future inspections. Shops which fail an inspection must sample daily until the source of the problem is found and corrected. Then, as inspection results improve, the frequency of sampling and inspection is relaxed.

Reject and replace any boot with a CW to CCW difference of more than 6 Nm for adult boots or 4 Nm when testing child boot types. 7. Rank the five twist results and select as the Reference Boot for twist, the middle boot. 8. Rank the five forward lean results and select as the Reference Boot for forward lean, the middle boot.

TEST DEVICE

A device which meets ISO standard 11110 (or ASTM standard F1061) and has been checked and maintained in the manner specified by the device manufacturer.

TEST RESULT OR RELEASE TORQUE

The middle quantitative value of three tests made in the same direction. (Add other terms from ISO 13993 or ASTM F1064 that are not defined elsewhere in the tech manual).

PRESEASON TEST REFERENCE BOOT SELECTION

The Reference Boot is a boot of a designated sole length which is otherwise typical of the boot inventory. Use the procedure below if the boot inventory includes several models and a representative boot can not be easily identified. 1. Select five single boots with sole lengths as specified in Chart A for the binding type to be tested: adult, junior, or child. 2. Clean all five boots with a mild detergent and water. 3. Adjust a rental binding to the release indicator setting specified in Chart A for the binding type. 4. Fit the binding to the boots and determine the Release Torque in all three directions of

PRESEASON BINDING INSPECTION

The procedure that follows is an integral part of preseason maintenance. It is also a good way to determine if mainte­ nance is adequate and which units have outlived their usefulness and must be removed from inventory. 1. Clean areas of the bindings that contact the boot and perform all preseason binding maintenance. 2. Visually or manually check: a. AFD condition. b. Brakes function. c. Release indicator readability and travel. d. Screw tightness. e. (other product specific inspections if required) 3. Fit each binding to the Reference Boot and adjust the release indicators to the value in Chart A. 4. Check that the heel track and toe track code (if any) agree with the sole length code (if any) of the Reference Boot. 5. With the Reference Boot in the binding, verify elastic travel of the toe piece by striking the boot toe with a mallet or dead hammer and checking that the toe piece returns the boot quickly and completely to center. 6. Verify elastic travel of the heel piece by lifting the boot while depressing the heel

Manually release the binding 3 times in each direction. 8. Lubricate all boot/binding interfaces with a mild liquid detergent and water solution. 9. With the Ski Binding Test Device determine the Release Torque for each direction of release (forward lean and both directions in twist). 10. Record “PASS” in the binding's maintenance record if Test Results are within the Inspection Ranges provided in Chart A. 11. Set the ski aside if the Test Result in any directions of release is outside the Inspection Range in Chart A. 12. Follow Troubleshooting Procedure for units which have been set aside and retest if changes in the unit's condition or adjustment are made. 13. Record “FAIL” in the binding's maintenance record if, after troubleshooting, test results in any direction of release are outside the In-Use Range. Replace the ‘failed’ unit and retest before returning the ski to service. 14. If after troubleshooting, Test Results are outside the Inspection Range but within the In-Use Range, apply a Correction Factor to the unit and note the Correction Factor for that unit in the binding's maintenance record. 15. If many bindings fail, check the test device and re-inspect the Reference Boot. If necessary, select another boot and retest the bindings.

PRESEASON BOOT PREPARATION

PRESEASON BOOT INSPECTION

The procedure that follows is an integral part of preseason maintenance.

The procedure that follows helps to assure both boot/binding compatibility and boot interchange ability.

1. C lean all boots with (a mild detergent and water), and repair or replace damaged or missing parts. 2. Visually check: a. Conformance with ISO and other applicable standards. If the boot contacts the binding, brake, or AFD in areas other than the designated contact points, it may be incompatible with the binding (product specific figure or description). b. Boot material. If the sole at the contact points with the binding or AFD can be scratched with a finger nail, the boot may be of inferiors quality and incompatible with the binding. c. Boot sole condition. If the boot sole is damaged, worn, or contaminated at contact points with the binding or AFD in a manner which can not be corrected, the boot may be incompatible with the binding. d. B rake compatibility with sole. e. R ubber and/or metal sole protectors. If such materials contact the binding or AFD the boot may be incompatible with the binding. f. Mold flashings. Flashing which can be seen or felt at contact points with the binding, brake, or AFD must be carefully removed. 3. Remove from inventory all boots that have failed the visual check.

PRESEASON BOOT SAMPLING Although sampling eliminates the need to test every boot before the season starts, the sample chosen must be representative of the inventory. 1. For boots that are new to inventory or have never been inspected, take a single boot from each cell (a cell is all boots of the same make, model, year, and shell size). 2. For used boots, take a 5% (but not less than 16 or more than 80) random sample of the entire inventory. Make sure that there is at least one boot from each cell in the sample.

Note: when using Chart A, in the Boot Inspection procedured that follow, the Sole Length and Release Indicator Setting Columns should be ignored. 1. Randomly select a pair of bindings that have passed the preseason inspection from each binding type; adult, junior, child. 2. Lubricate all boot/binding contact points with a mild liquid detergent. 3. Without regard to whether the boot is new or used, sort the sample by sole type and length according to the 20 mm Sole Length Categories defined by binding adjustment chart (ISO 11088) . 4. In each Sole Length Category rank the boots by sole length and select the middle boot. 5. In each Sole Length Category fit the appropriate reference bindings to this “typical” boot and adjust the two bindings to release as close as practical to the Reference Torque in Chart A. Use the Reference Torque corresponding to Skier Code (L) for the Adult binding, (J) for the Junior binding, and (E) for the Child binding. 6. Rinse the lubricant from one binding and mark it “clean”. Mark the other “lubricated”. 7. Test each boot in the Sole Length Category with the clean Reference Binding and then the lubricated Reference Binding in both twist and forward lean (only one direction in twist is required for the clean binding). 8. Set aside any boots for which the lubricated Test Result is more than 20% less than the clean Test Result in the same direction of release or the lubricated Test Result in any direction of release is outside of the Inspection Range provided in Chart A for the Skier Code used to set up the Reference Binding (L, J, or E). 9. Repeat the Visual Check on all boots that have been set aside, correct any defects noted, and retest. Remove from inventory boots that fail the retest. 10. Check all other boots from the same cell (make, model, year, and shell size) as those that failed. Note: On completion of the preseason inspection, clean the liquid detergent from the equipment (and lubricate the binding before returning it to service).

INSEASON SAMPLING AND INSPECTION The Inseason Inspection is a test of complete systems and all the procedures used by the rental staff to assemble and adjust the system.

The program uses random samples of rental inventory taken at routine intervals. Any sampling program that gives every unit of

inventory the same chance as every other of being picked is valid.

SAMPLE FREQUENCY

5. If the results are within the Inspection Range, the unit passes. 6. If the results are outside Inspection Range but within the In-Use Range, count the unit as a Class I Deviation. 7. If the results are outside the In-Use Range, count the unit as a Class II Deviation. 8. Check elastic travel and visually inspect the ski brake function, interface areas between boot and binding, including AFD, lug height adjustment (if appropriate), and forward pressure. Count any deficiencies as Class I Deviations.

9. If more than the maximum number of Class I Deviations given in Chart B are found in the sample, or a single Class II Deviation is detected the sample fails and daily sampling must be conducted until the problem which led to the failed sample is found and corrected. For Troubleshooting Procedures following a Failed Inseason Inspection. 10.  Record the date the sample was tested, the number of units tested the number of Class I and Class II (or III) Deviations, whether the sample passed or failed and any actions taken. There is no need to record the identity of units tested or actual Test Results.

Random sampling is conducted throughout the entire season. Frequency is as follows: 1. After 7 days of operation. 2. If the sample passes the next sampling is taken after another 7 days of operation. 3. If two consecutive samples pass, sampling frequency is increased to 14 days. 4. If a sample fails at any time, daily sampling is instituted until two consecutive samples pass, at which point weekly sampling resumes.

SAMPLE SIZE Sample size is 5% of inventory but not less than 16 nor more than 80 units as noted in Chart B. Sample size is based on average daily output. If rental output drops below 50% of capacity over the sampling period, the sample size can be reduced proportionately.

MAINTENANCE REPAIRS

BROKEN MOUNTING SCREW Salomon screw extractor kit: it comes with two bits of different lengths. The longer bit is for use with the Salomon jigs for adult skis. The shorter bit should be used with the Salomon jigs for junior skis. The procedures for using both bits are the same. When a screw or tap breaks in a ski, it must be removed carefully to avoid further damage.

Follow this procedure: 1.  Fit the extractor drill bit into the electric drill with the shoulder touching the chuck. 2.  Fasten the appropriate jig onto the ski. 3.  Position the correct jig bushing directly over the broken screw. 4.  Drill slowly around the broken screw using an up-and-down movement to let the shavings escape. Caution: do not hit the screw. 5.  Continue until the chuck touches the bushing of the jig.

6.  The broken screw will come out inside the extractor bit. 7.  Remove the screw using a pair of pliers. 8.  Turn the ski over and tap lightly to remove all shavings. 9.  Put a drop of glue into the hole. 10.  Insert a plug from the kit using a hammer. 11.  Insert binding screw and tighten using a hand driver. Do not over tighten. 12. When a hole simply needs to be widened to accept the plastic plugs, use an 8 mm diameter bit. Do not drill deeper than 10 mm.

When drilling, the drill bit must be perpendicular to the surface of the ski.

Make sure you don’t go beyond the plug once it is in place. You can file it down to make it level with the surface.

STRIPPED SCREWS For a stripped screw, use the repair kit 000878. For this operation, use the corresponding jig and position it properly by lining it up with the hole to be repaired.

NORM

THERE ARE DIFFERENT STANDARDS : ISO 5355 AND TOURING 9523

BOOT STANDARD Alpine norm ISO 5355: These boots are designed for use with a pair of classic skis with alpine bindings and not with a monoski, snowboard or skiboard. Touring norm ISO 9523: These boots are designed for use with a pair of touring bindings, and not with alpine bindings, monoski, snowboard or skiboard. It is the skier’s own responsibility if (s)he chooses to take the additional risks. When a pair of used boots is brought in, make sure that any worn parts are still within the norm. Your ski boots must be assembled, adjusted and checked by an approved Salomon technician.

The Alpine boot soles are standardized and bindings are designed accordingly. The standard norm concerns not only the shape and dimensions as illustrated, but also the friction coefficient of the area of the sole which is in contact with the anti-friction plate on the binding. In practical terms: The boot manufacturers who display one of the following markings: DIN, ISO, ÖN, UNI guarantee that they use standard norms. In the absence of any of these, check first with the boot manufacturer.

MEASURER

THE SALOMON MEASURER WARNING Salomon developed a foot measurer that will help you provide better customer service by being able to recommend the size that corresponds to the dimensions (length and width) of the skier’s feet. However, using the measurer can never replace trying on a boot. The volume fit can be measured in two dimensions. The morphology of the foot and physical sensitivity of each individual, according to his/her sports activities and level (comfort/­ performance ratio), are also determining factors in the choice of size. The Salomon measurer can be used for all Salomon footwear products (Alpine, X-C, Hiking, In-line skates, Snowboard) and takes into account the two fundamental dimensions of both feet. › The length (main measurement): it can be read directly on 5 international size scales (US men’s/ US women’s/ UK / EUR / Mondopoint). › The width in direct correlation with the length measured. The width measurement is particularly useful to refine the measurement in Mondopoint because it orients the customer towards the .0 sizes (narrow feet) or .5 sizes (wide feet).

C

B A

PROCEDURE 1. Have your customer take off his/her shoes and make sure that he/ she is wearing appropriate ski socks (size and thickness). 2. With your customer standing up, legs parallel and knees slightly bent, make sure his/her heels and medial side of both feet are touching the sides of the measurer. 3. Slowly move the length guide (A) until it touches the tip of one foot. IMPORTANT: When you are moving the black transversal length guide, make sure you don’t put any pressure on the toes when measuring the foot. All you need to do is to barely touch the end of the longest toe. Too much pressure on the toes could lead to errors in reading by a few millimeters. 4. Read the size written vertically where the red line is in the window (B). For Mondopoint, you have to take the width into account in the following manner: if the length of the foot measured is situated in this zone, this means the foot measures between 260 mm and 269 mm. Then, to choose between 26.0 and 26.5, you must look at the width scale (C) (in this case, make it correspond to the maximum foot width with size 26). A foot that measures 261 mm would fit in size 26.5 (wide foot), whereas a foot that measures 268 mm can fit in size 26.0 (narrow foot) (D). NOTE: The increases in Mondopoint sizes represented by two triangles in a rectangle is made to remind you that the boot sole lengths change at the whole sizes, not the half sizes. Remember that the size indicated on the measurer should be used to help the dealer orient the customer towards the proper size. The final choice as to the appropriate size should be left to the customer depending on whether he/she prefers a snug fit or not. In principle, a technical skier who appreciates a snug fit will choose the size indicated on the measurer, while a ‘recreational’ skier will prefer a roomier fit and will choose one size higher.

THE MEASURER SIDAS SALOMON This measurer allows measures of: - Length: real Mondopoint/french sizes/UK sizes/US sizes

MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDATIONS Use a damp cloth to clean the measurer. It is prohibited to use chemical agents, hot water, pressurized water, gasoline, alcohol, detergents, solvents or aerosols, which could permanently damage the plastic materials and erase the marks.

HOW

STEPS TO FOLLOW FOR A SUCCESSFUL CUSTOM SHELL CUSTOMIZATION We recommend the use of the Sidas bootfittingoven (fig 1). Make sure the customer uses only ski socks which go higher than the top of the boot. 1. Remove liners from shells. 2. Put the shells in the oven with buckles open (fig 2 oven). 3. Close the door and start the machine, set the timer for 10 minutes. Warning: Make sure to wear insulated gloves when removingboot shells. Do not allow customers to touch the boot, avoiding possible burns. 4. Switch off the oven and remove the shells. 5. Put liners back in. 6. Help the customer to step in (fig 3). 7. Close the boots with minimum tightening (first tooth of the buckle) and make sure the forefoot shell seals stay in the right position. Warning: Ask your customer to stand still. Avoid bending or walking with warmed shells. 8. Make sure the shell has been fully deformed before starting the cooling process. (It takes approximately 2 min). 9. Cooling process : you can find 2 sizes of cool pack, first one for boots sizes 22 to 26.5 ; the second one or boots sizes 27 to 31.5. thanks to follow the process (fig 4). 10. Take boots off, the custom Shell boot is ready. You can use your regular heating tools though they would be less practical than the oven: • heating elements (fig 5). • gun (fig 6). • boiling water (fig 7). Warning: Kaprolene™ has been created to be deformed by the foot’s natural pressure. Be very careful if you need to use a pushing machine on the Kaprolene™ areas and NEVER push on the side areas where Kaprolene™ meets the PU shell.

3. Asymmetrical and rigid cuff Distributes pressure for instantaneous transmission of efforts. 4. Watertight gusset 5. Specific cuts For women and men to avoid pressure points on the lower calf. 6. More supple zones Allow for easy entry/exit of the boot. 7. Forefoot The space in front of the metatarsal is not thermoformable, which allows the toes to move freely.

THERMOFORMING MACHINE Before using the machine for the first time, return the guarrantee card to your Customer Service Representative. Follow the instructions for the thermoforming machine closely and pay particular attention to the rules on safety. To guarantee good thermoforming, we have adapted a thermal sensor to our machines. If something is abnormal during the heating process, the machine will work alternately. If this is the case, contact the customer service in your country. Do not take the machine apart. This machine is for exclusive use with Salomon CUSTOMFIT liners. Any other use is forbidden.

PREPARING FOR USE (fig. 1) 1. Remove the machine from its box and place it on a flat surface. Verify that the voltage used is the same as indicated on the machine. 2. Lift the hood. 3. L ift the nozzles using the handles provided. 4. Close the boot’s buckles and slide the boots onto the nozzles. Make sure that the top edge of the boot touches the obturator. Important: Any insoles used other than the ones received in the boots at the time of purchase should be removed before the heating procedure begins. Re-install them after heating to mold the liners. 5. A fter having read and understood the machine’s instructions, especially those on safety, you can now plug the machine in.

STARTING THE MACHINE Set the timer for 15 mins. Warning: For optimal results, it is important that: - the heating process lasts 15 minutes. Using the machine for more than 15 mins can damage the liner. - operate the machine with both boots in place.

PUTTING THE BOOT ON 1. W  hen thermoforming, you should only use ski socks that have the following characteristics: - socks that go higher than the top of the boot, - socks with at least 45% wool. Wearing normal, low-cut socks could cause skin reactions to the heating process. 2. Remove the boots from the machine. 3. Close the hood. 4. The machine is now available for thermo­ forming another pair of boots. 5. Open the boot buckles. 6. The boots must be put on immediately following the end of the 15 min heating cycle. 7. Close the buckles with medium pressure, not too tight (fig. 2). 8. Close the strap more firmly. 9. Tap the heel on the floor to make a good impression of the Achilles’ heel. 10. Wait 10 min in a standing position. If you feel any discomfort whatsoever when stepping-in, take your boots off immediately. 11. Remove the boots.

PRACTICAL ADVICE › Salomon recommends that no CustomFit liner be thermoformed more than three times. › To optimize the results of the thermoforming process, it is recommended that you make several flex movements during the 10 minute cooling process to simulate the anklebone movements when skiing. › It is recommended to wait 1/2 hour before skiing with the boots, to allow for complete stabilization of the thermoformed liner.

Drying with a machine When drying the CustomFit liners with a drying machine, it is important to respect the drying time recommended by the manufacturer and that the temperature not exceed 40°C. 65

1. Check that surelock mechanism is closed on downhill position in order to avoid any liner damage during Custom Fit process :

Warning ! remove the integrated battery from the liner before Custom Fit process

2. Remove the liner from the shell 3. Remove insoles from the liner 4. Put the liner in the Custom Shell oven 5 minutes at 100°C maximum (preferably already heated).

5.  At the end of the 5 minutes, add insoles (original, custom or orthopedic) in the liner and put them into the shell : a. Take care to respect the right liner in right shell and vice versa (liner aren’t marked but differentiated only by the shape of the sole. b.  Advice : make one foot after the other (preserve the liner not yet achieved in the oven). 6.Put the client, taking good care to push the client’s heel all the way down to the liner to correctly set the heel to the bottom and thus do not create bends 7. Close the shell and the cuff with buckles and making sure that the surelock mechanism is closed on downhill position 8. Provide a clamping adapted, according to the morphology of the worked foot. 9. Cool down 15 minutes at room temperature and in natural standing position without exaggerating the bending on the front.

RECOMMANDATIONS FOR EXPERIENCED BOOTFITTERS You can use your regular heating tools though they would be less practical than the oven: • heating elements (fig 1). • gun (fig 2). • boiling water (fig 3). Warning: Kaprolene™ has been created to be deformed by the foot’s natural pressure. Be very careful if you need to use a pushing machine on the Kaprolene™ areas and NEVER push on the sides areas where Kaprolene™ meets the PU shell.

FAQ CUSTOM SHELL Can the shell change forms several times? As many times as you want! The wider the foot, the more the shell will expand. But it won’t come back…

should be complete. Then, the areas of the toes, ankles, and navicular bone... can be changed as usual, though avoid pushing on the borders of the Custom Shell insert.

From what foot width will the Custom Shell be useful?

Can I push in the Custom Shell area with my bootfitting machine?

In size 26, from last 100 or 102 mm, the customer will feel a real difference. The Custom Shell is also useful for thinner feet in order to reposition the foot even if the change is not measurable on the shell.

What is the maximum width the shell can expand to? Up to 6 mm with the push of the foot only.

What is the advantage compared to normal bootfitting? Here, it is the foot which changes the shell, there is no more risk of misinterpretation, the precision is perfect. Also, this process saves time (30 min. to do everything & the customer leaves with his/ her boots) and an easier manipulation (every KOTF can do it).

Should the custom soles be done before or after? Mold the soles before. The customer should then step in the warmed Custom Shell with the insoles.

Should other areas of the shell be changed before or after? A modification of the metatarsus's area can affect the positioning of the foot. First, the Custom Shell

How many years of R&D did it take to develop the Custom Shell technology? 3 years.

Which is the impact of the new material on the performance of the boot?

Yes, but it is not recommended. Since the Custom Shell material has not been created to resist to a push that is superior the feet’s push, avoid the side areas of the insert.

There is no effect because the material has the same PU base as a normal boot. The boot has exactly the same behavior on snow. On the other hand, once a boot is fit with the Custom Shell, precision is increased.

Does the plastic retract the same as normal boots when cooled?

If a customer wants an injected liner, should it be done before or after?

Yes, but two times less than normal plastic: approximately 25% after the boots have been taken out (a shell pushed out 4mm could come back to 3 mm).

What is the benefit of Custom Shell versus the Custom Fit? Should you do it before or after? The work done on the shell must be done before. This will solve problems and last over time. The molding of the liner must be done after in order to put the finishing touches on the fit.

How do I know when the plastic is warm enough? It is the same process as usual when done with a manual test.

In general, injection is done before work on the shell.

I usually put normal boots in the oven, how is Custom Shell different? The normal plastic is going to change very little and comes back to the original position more often. The deformation is thus quite low.

Why is Custom Shell not used in World Cup? In World Cup races, one person is dedicated to each racer; everything is done by hand and each pair is adapted to each discipline. Then you could say having Custom Shell is like having your own race technician!

What is the ideal temperature to form the Custom Shell? 80°C at core of the plastic.

FOOT ANATOMY AND FIT

NOTIONS OF ANATOMY

1

A basic knowledge of anatomy of the foot is essential if you are going to understand and solve your customers’ problems and needs since each foot is unique.

1. THE BONES OF THE FOOT (fig. 1)

A. POSTERIOR TARSUS 1. Calcaneus 2. Talus (Astragalus) 3. Trochlear surface

B. ANTERIOR TARSUS 4. Navicular bone (Tarsal Scaphoid) 5. Cuboid bone 6. 3 cuneiform bones

C. METATARSUS 7. 5 metatarsal bones

D. TOES 8. 14 phalanges

2. DISTORTION OF FOOT WHEN WEIGHTED

2

(fig. 2) When the foot is weighted (standing position), it can change in size: - lengthwise, it can get 5 mm longer, - widthwise, it can get 12 mm wider. When the foot is flexed, we notice: - the circumference of the ankle increases about 2 mm, - the axis between the talus (astragalus) and calcaneus becomes off-centered which increases the surface area at the base of the foot. Therefore, to be accurate, feet should be measured when the person is standing with his/her weight distributed on both feet and knees slightly flexed.

3. TYPES OF LEGS (fig. 3) Some people naturally have varus or valgus knees. The boot cuff follows the profile of the leg. Therefore, the boot sole forms an angle with the ground (= the ski is not flat). The ski boots can be adapted to the shape of the leg by canting the cuff. The canting adjustment by canting the cuff allows the boot to follow the morphology of the leg to keep skis flat.

B: Varus knees.

C: Valgus knees.

FOOT ANATOMY AND FIT

4. TYPES OF FEET (fig. 4) A deeper analysis of the customer’s feet is necessary to observe the possible deformations that can become problem areas. Salomon has parts at your disposal that will help you to easily adapt the boots to these deformations. › High arches: The skier needs an arch support that can relieve pressure on ‘overloaded’ areas. Arch supports can be attached to the footboards (fig. A). › Supinated or pronated feet: This is the deviation of the foot’s vertical axis towards the medial or lateral side, which can lead to problems in the areas of the anklebones, navicular bone or talus. To adapt to this deviation of the foot, it is possible to place wedges directly on the footboard. However, this wedge should only be used if the lateral articulation under the ankle bone is mobile (fig. B). › High instep: You can grind the footboard (Falcon and X Wave) to increase the volume. This sole is realized in grindable PU foam. To increase the volume of the boot or to change the position of the foot. Caution, grind on the top surface only. Grinding the base will effect the interface with the Chassis. A depth gauge is marked front and back for even grinding (fig. C).

2. Normal foot.

3. Supinated high-arched foot.

D

› Low instep: The height and inclination of the footboard can be modified by adding: – heel lifts (fig. D).

5. RECOMMENDATIONS The modifications that can be made on the Salomon boots should be considered as the ‘final touch’ of personalization. Before undertaking this type of operation, it is important to observe certain basic rules: - A lways proceed step by step, starting with temporary measures before going on to permanent changes. - If you decide to proceed with the permanent modifications as a last resort, they are entirely your responsibility. They require the proper tools and should be undertaken only for big problems and by experienced specialists. For example: - Stretching the shell. - G rinding the liner (not recommended for manufactured liners). - Grinding the shell. Important: Boots whose lower shell material is not made of Polyurethane (PU), should not be heated (risk of damaging the material).

PROBLEMS

CAUSES SOLUTIONS

FIRST METATARSAL PRESSURE (medial side of the forefoot)

Shell too narrow. Prominent first metatarsal.

Solutions all products: › Stick adhesive foam around the first metatarsal on the medial side of the liner (fig. A). › Stretch the shell locally with a heat gun* and other tools designed for this purpose (such as SIDAS) (except Symbio and Rear Entry). X Wave, Ellipse, Performa: Be careful not to overheat the Sensifit or instep gusset of the boot during the heating operation (there is a risk of deforming it due to how thin this part is).

FIFTH METATARSAL PRESSURE (lateral side of the forefoot)

Shell (or liner) too narrow. Prominent fifth metatarsal.

Solutions all products: › Remove the insole (increases volume). › Stick adhesive foam around the painful area to dissipate the pressure (fig. B). › Stretch the shell locally using a heat gun* and other tools designed for this purpose (such as SIDAS) (except Symbio and Rear Entry). X Wave, Performa: Be careful not to overheat the Sensifit or the instep gusset of the boot during the heating operation (there is a risk of deforming it due to how thin this part is).

ANKLEBONE PRESSURE Pain/pressure behind one or both ankle bones.

Prominent medial and lateral ankle bones. Heel shape.

Solutions for Falcon, X Wave, Performa: Special precautions are required when stretching the shell: › Heat* the inside and outside of the cuff and lower shell simultaneously (so that both will be at the same temperature despite their different thicknesses and layers). › Place the stretching device on the inside, close the boot during the stretching operation, and proceed with very small successive degrees of stretching to avoid creating a space between the cuff and the shell. Falcon and X Wave: Be careful not to heat the metal parts (there is a risk of damaging the plastic). Solutions for Rear-Entry models: › Remove the insole to increase the volume. › Stick a C-shaped foam pad in the area around the ankle bones (on the liner) (fig. C). › Remove some foam from the liner in the area around the ankle bones. › Add shims to blue heel envelopment plate.

HEEL PRESSURE

Lack of room in the boot. Prominent calcaneus (exostosis).

Solutions all products: › Stick a chevron (foam pad in the form of an inverted V) above the calcaneus to push the foot forward in the shell and reduce the pressure on the heel (fig. D). › It is possible to remove some PU from both sides of the Achilles tendon on the cuff (grinding) and/or on the lower shell (Falcon, X Wave, Ellipse and Performa).

*Caution: The boots whose lower shells aren’t made of Polyurethane (PU) must not be stretched with heat (there is a risk of damaging the material).

Very narrow heel. Achilles tendon axis very hollow. Thin ankle.

Solutions all products: › Stick a chevron above the calcaneus on the liner (fig. E). › Stick an L-shaped piece of foam under each ankle bone (for better grip). › Add a shim to the top of the liner (forward position that pushes the foot backward in the boot and increases pressure on the heel). › Use a thicker insole. › Add a shim under the footboard. › Add heel lifts (fig. F).

INSULATION AND NUMBNESS Cold, numb feet.

Poor blood circulation caused by pressure on the blood vessels/ nerves. Poor foothold distribution (especially with children).

Solutions all products: › Make sure the adjustments are not too tight. › Remove the insoles from the liners. › Add a small arch support and varus wedge (or a shim on the inside of the heel under the footboard from the performance series). › Grind the footboard.

CRAMPS Muscle pain under the arch, in the calf, pressure points, irritations.

Pronounced arch, high instep or flat foot. Pronated foot. Thick lower leg.

Solutions all products (fig. H): › Add or remove the arch support. › Add an insole or propose a custom insole. › Remove all shims under the footboard. › Modify the angle of the forward lean to distribute the skier’s weight differently. › Grind the footboard. › Grinding the Custom Sole: To increase the volume of the boot or to change the position of the foot. Caution, grind on the top surface only. Grinding the base will affect the interface with the Chassis. A depth gauge is marked front and back for even grinding.

HELMET

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT HELMET

HELMET ADJUSTEMENT

The helmet must be properly positionned on, and adjusted to the user’s head to ensure maximum comfort and protection and be free of any pressure points. The helmet should sit firmly against the forehead and not slip down over the eyebrows. Adjust the chinstrap firmly beneath the chin and fasten the buckle.

✔ RIGHT

✘ FALSE

Try to move the helmet with both hands from left to right. If the helmet fits correctly, the skin on your forehead should move gently with the helmet. In case of children’s helmets, an adult should always check that the helmet is properly secured

MAINTENANCE WE ADVISE YOU TO GIVE INSTRUCTIONS OF USE TO ANY CUSTOMER BUYING A HELMET. STORAGE

SERVICING

Helmet must be kept away from all sources of heat. Never expose an helmet to over 40°C. Extended exposure to fierce sunlight may weaken various plastic materials. These conditions often occur within a car parked in the sun.

Inspect your helmet regularly. If you remark any sign of deformation or damage, replace your helmet. Do not hesitate to show your helmet to a Salomon dealer or contact our customer service department.

CLEANING

REPLACEMENT – WARNING !

1/ External shell: Use only soap and water. Do not use gasoline or any other solvent/chemical substances.

This helmet was designed to absorb shocks by deformation or destruction. If your helmet has been subjected to a forceful shock, or involved in an accident, it should be destroyed and replaced even if there Is no visible damage because interior damage can occur that weakens the helmet. SALOMON Recommends not use a helmet more than 5 years from the date of manufacture (month/year appears on the sticker inside the helmet).

2/ Lining & Ear pads

UPKEEP Do not modify your helmet. Do not put varnish or any coloring products on your helmet. Do not cut the ends of the straps. Only use the included stickers on your helmet.

SALOMON OPTICAL EXPERTISE

OPTICAL QUALITY GUARANTEE SALOMON GOGGLES PROTECT THE EYES FROM WIND, COLD, SNOW, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE SUN. SUNLIGHT IS MADE UP OF THREE TYPES OF RAYS: ULTRAVIOLET, VISIBLE LIGHT, AND INFRARED.

ALL SALOMON LENSES FILTER 100% OF THE SUN’S UV RAYS, FOR COMPLETE EYE PROTECTION. Salomon lenses all pass the European Standard (CE EN174:2001), indicating a safe level of sun protection. All Salomon lenses are tested in external certified labs, in-house labs, and in the field to assure that they meet Salomon standards for scratch resistance, adhesion, durability and longevity.

GOOD TO KNOW Salomon lenses have extra lens durability thanks to: • TRI-TECH: new generation of anti-static, hydrophobic and oleophobic coating improves its intrinsic qualities, without altering the color or tint, and ensures a super smooth, extremely durable coating. Available on X-MAX, X-TEND Multilayer and upgraded mirror.

ANTISMUDGES

ANTISTATIC

WATERREPELLENT

• ANTI-SCRATCH FINISHING: all Salomon lenses have an additional antiscratch finishing with high resistance and long-lasting durability.

CATEGORY AND VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMISSION PROTECTION INDEX OR CATEGORY

VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMISSION *

S0

80 to 100%

Little to no lens tint. These lenses are best in stormy weather conditions, very low light, or under artificial light (ski domes or in northern countries). They primarily protect against wind, snow and dust.

S1

43 to 80%

Lenses with low or light tint, designed to enhance terrain contrast and definition in cloudy and medium (flat) light conditions.

S2

18 to 43%

Lenses with medium tint, designed for universal use. These provide the best vision in most conditions, brighten details and increase depth perception. Ideal for flat to moderately sunny conditions.

S3

8 to 18%

Fully tinted lenses for use in sunny conditions. They give exceptional visual acuity, color definition and glare protection for bright days and all sunny conditions.

S4

3 to 8%

Maximally tinted lenses, typically reserved for use in extremely bright conditions, like glaciers or high altitude in snow. This category is not recommended for driving.

* This refers to the amount of visible light that can pass through a lens. For example a lens with a VLT of 12 % allows roughly 12% of visible light to pass through the lens (therefore blocking 88% of visible light).
