Went riding with my daughter today at the indoor slope - she was on Allz Elailas, I was was on Nomads.
I was happily cruising and just pushed off at the point where slope angle changes then voila! I hit the slope chest first - a tad painful. To make a long story short, the whole SP100 heel piece was torn out of the mounting holes on one of the boards. Not the kind of workmanship I would expect from boards that are only 19 months old.
Those who are familiar with Summit boards will know that they mount the releasable bindings directly onto the board. Thus photo shows the complete rip-out of all four mounting holes on the heel piece.
Close-up of one of the mounting holes, showing nearly no metal left from the insert.
The two rear mounting screws on the heel piece, still showing signs of the original glue used during mounting, but metal from the insert are attached. Screws protrude 5-6mm below the heel piece.
The good news:
There is no other damage to the board or the binding itself. I would not trust any shop in the UK to try to remount those bindings, but the 4x4 inserts are still there and untouched, so I can just put non-releasable on there and continue riding (or try to use a Spruce riser).
Was thinking of what to do with filling the other holes though. Maybe some marine epoxy or outdoor wood filler?
