I have a soft boot setup and thinking about trying hard boots on the same board.

Does anyone know if the Onyx toe pieces can be used with the Dynafit toe piece adapters from Spark to avoid drilling my board just to try if I like this? Basically, the Dynafit adapters will fit current holes on my split, and it would be great if I can get the Onyx toe pieces on the adapters and avoid drilling my board.

Alternatively, if the holes don't fit, is there any other reasonably reliable and non-permanent fastening approach to attach Onyx to Dynafit adapters?

Cheers
Ivo

I'm a big believer in Quiver Killers... which would be a non-permanent solution that would allow you to switch between your toepieces and soft binding touring brackets on the same board.

Any ski shop that can mount bindings should also be able to install QK inserts.

Just a suggestion...

The G3 Oynx binding has its own adapter plate?

From Backcountry.com
Mounting plate system means toe and heel attach to separate mounting plates (Tech system).

Curious as to why the G3 Oynx, instead of Dynafits and Spark R & D Dyanfit Adapters.

Jefe009: OK, I know Barrows also uses these - will look them up, thank you!

Powder_Rider: because I already have Onyx on my AT skis :) And their mounting plates have narrow pattern holes, not wide like my split.

And it is confirmed (from another forum) - you CAN use Dynafit toe piece adapters from Spark to mount Onyx toe pieces on your split without drilling new holes :headbang:

you might have this all sorted, but just in case.... you're aware the dyanfit pattern changed a couple years ago from the old template to the 'radical' pattern? and there were old spark adaptors and now the new radical ones.
i dunno which pattern g3 uses.

Thanks!

Yes, G3 uses the Vertical (old) pattern, but the Spark R&D guys were wise enough to accommodate both in the current adapters (sold out on Spark's page but there are other places that carry them) :clap:
