    Where is the optimal point for touring pin/piviot point in relation to front of foot/boot? I assume its better to be in-front of the boot but is there much difference if its back a bit and under the boot?

    You are correct. Optimal would be in front of the boot, as with tele and AT. But one of the small sacrifices we make in order to slide sideways is having the pivot point under the toes (unless you’ve got tiny feet). I think that should be a project for Will (PAGING WILL!!), some sort of extension to allow the pivot to be in front of the foot.

    I started moving my touring bracket forward of the Voile recommended position. I am running them 1″ – 1 1/2″ forward of the balance point of the board. I think it works better, skins better and helps get the tips to float in deep powder.

    i’ve been thinking about the same thing, after looking at where dynafit and other AT skis pivot. Moving the point forward would allow for a longer stride while keeping the board on the snow?
    I imagine a small uhmw/delrin block that slides into the front of the binder and pins into the touring bracket. More weight, another piece to carry… it would allow for a user of the volie plate to use the spark LT pin and touring bracket.
