Maybe it was an option, and my ski shop figured the stiffener made sense for the equippe level and pre-configured them that way.
The first SX90s were built without the external bar but the 'cuff' was very susceptible to being cut from ski edges.

There was a retrofit of a plate covered with a kind of think black primer type paint. It wrapped slightly round the edge of the cuff. Came with 2 small self tapping screws. Seem to remember that there was a metal plate in the cuff that you drilled into.

The ver 2 was riveted onto the cuff at the factory - a plate with two slightly raised strips fore and aft.

The boot in the pic is not from the first iteration, I think it's season 2 onward tho it could be that the design changed mid season.

Ver 1 is on the left

Saw a gal yesterday at Mountain High rocking a red pair strapped to some yellow Rossi 7s complete with vintage bindings (as much as I could tell). Her and her man were warming up on the greens (as were I and the grom). Lost sight of them, all I could imagine was that they went home after her gear failed...

With the lack of colors for contrast, I can't be certain, but I think these are Solomons. It looks like it says Solomon on the right boot (looker's left) in the first photo. They look almost new, shining like they are.

I was trying to be subtle taking these photos as I was loading the chair.

Not Salomon's but Salomon bindings...along with the period Olins..the whole shabang.

Out of curiosity, what are the boots?

Can't quite place them. Could be a Heierling or one of many rear entry boots of that era.
Hard to be sure. There's a red logo that looks Nordica-ish. I am 99% confident it's not a Salomon

Terrible boot with decent binding. The funny thing is that the boots look really shiny and new unlike most really old shells.

I also wondered if it was the person who actually bought a pair but with a bit of tinkering with the image:

  • Logo in a different place
  • The instep& hinge setup is different
  • There seems to be a blanking plate where on a higher model there might be a presser
It looks like a museum piece.
