Daymakers Functionality

1. How do I fit it to my boots or bindings? 

The adapters simply clamp around your ski boot, and then you step into your ski bindings as you normally would! Please visit our Youtube channel or the owners manual for further details

2. Do i need touring boots?

No, you do not need touring boots to work with the Daymakers! Our alpine adapters are one of the only products on the market aside from framed ski bindings that allow a normal ski boot to be used for ski touring. Most other systems now require a tech compatible ski boot which typically costs an additional 400-$800 to begin ski touring. 

3. Can i use ski touring or walk-mode boots?

Yes! Daymakers will work with all boots that have an iso 5355 sole. This is for downhill ski boots. Daymakers will also function with Gripwalk soles, common to walkmode/ski touring boots and are now becoming the industry standard. You can select the gripwalk option in the dropdown for boot type when ordering Daymakers. If you already own a 4th generation Daymaker (has a 4.5mm diameter toe bail) you can purchase the special Toe Bail Here for Gripwalk compatibility. 

3. What is "BSL" or Boot Sole Length?

The Boot Sole Length is how long your ski boot is, in millimeters. This is the industry standard for sizing bindings and measuring ski boots. It is located on the outside of your plastic boot shell, near the heel in small numbers. This number typically ranges between 260mm and 355mm. 

This varies from "Mondo size" which ranges from a 22.0 to a 32.0 

Please visit this page here https://www.daymakertouring.com/pages/presetup-info for a visual detail on how to locate BSL

4. Do you recommend any spare parts?

 If you weight over 210lbs without gear, we recommend 2 spare pivot bolts located here .

For trips to desolate regions  having a spare rear linkage  is a good idea. Damage to this linkage may be easily avoided by clearing out snow/ice buildup from the Daymakers properly when making the skin track in deep/packy snow. Please see this video here on proper usage 

5. Recommended downhill ski bindings to pair the Daymaker with

The look Look Pivot series (12,14, or 18 Din) offer high performance and an unsurpassed retention elasticity. Most users can get away with the 14 DIN for powder skiing while saving 200g of weight versus the pivot 18 all metal series. 

Marker Jester 16 or Marker Griffon

Tyrolia Attack series (very lightweight)

 

6. Recommended skins?
