Technical Information
PRODUCT PREPARATION
Product preparation is of a high importance for every user. All Elan Skis are engineered and producted according to
the actual ISO standards for alpine skis, but even the best manufactured product with the best materials used will not
perform well if minimal preparation and maintenance rules will not be followed.

TUNING
Each and every ski needs to be tuned properly and regularly to maintain its performance and safety. Factory tuning
is done on industrial machinery and cannot be copied manually. Only authorized people with knowledge about the
handling of service machines should service the skis.
Sintered bases require more frequent waxing but are harder and more resistant to impact damage; extruded bases
are less demanding as far as waxing is concerned, but due to their softness may require more frequent repairs of
impact damage.
Steel edges are to be sharpened once the edge grip gets less strong or the edges are damaged. Even after only a
few days of skiing on ice, the skis can significantly loose their edge grip.
SKI

For the tuning of Elan skis we recommend the following edge geometry:
Angle from base: 1° ± 0,5°
Angle from side: 1,5° ± 0,5°

DRILL BITS
Proper binding installation is essential for the optimal performance of the product and proper binding function. Follow
the chart below regarding the diameter of the drill-bit, depth of drilling.

MOUNTING POSITIONS
The mounting position is usually close to the gravity point of the ski. Any variation towards the tip will make the ski
more aggressive and quicker to turn, any variation towards the tail will make it accelerate better out of turn.
MOUNTING POSITIONS FOR NON FUSION SKIS
This measurements should be taken from the tail of the ski and indicate the boot center.
All measurements are in millimeters.
Acceptable tolerance +/- 1.5 mm.

Product warranty
ELAN grants warranty for the quality and performance • WEAR AND TEAR (the condition of the skis indicates
of Elan skis for a term of one year from date of sale to whether the customer is trying to make a claim due
the consumer. The warranty covers defects that have to a minor defect which he/she could have caused
not been caused by the customer. by improper use or lack of care - checking of the
warranty terms absolutely necessary)
THE WARRANTY CLAIM WILL BE ACCEPTED • ABUSE (deformation caused by excessive force,
IN CASE: breaks, delamination of the glued layers, removal of
• the product has been chosen in the right size, protectors and similar)
• the bindings are mounted properly,
• in case of normal wear and tear of the product,
• in case of proper care and storage of the product.

ELAN SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO ACCEPT THE


WARRANTY CLAIM PROVIDED:
SKI

• the proper warranty claim procedure has not been


observed by the distributor;
• upon verification of the justification of a warranty
claim by the producer, the distributor does not submit
evidence justifying the claim.
Such evidence can be returned skis and the invoices
indicating the date of the sale to the consumer.
• The producer’s Quality Assurance Department finds
out on the basis of a description of the defect, sub -
mitted samples or an inspection that the warranty
term has expired or that the defect has been caused
by reasons beyond the producer’s liability.

THE WARRANTY SHALL NOT APPLY IF THE


CLAIM IS A RESULT OF ONE OF THE
FOLLOWING REASONS:
• IMPROPER SKI SIZE (discrepancy between the skier’s
weight and body height and the chosen ski design)
• IMPROPER USE (only those models declared as rental
skis by the producer can be used for rental purposes)
• IMPROPER BINDING MOUNTING (improper binding
mounting area, hole diameter, binding mounting force,
humidity in the wood core through the binding holes)
• SHOCKS AGAINST ROCKS (The skis are designed
for skiing on snow which is why the producer cannot
be held liable for delamination of the edges, base and
sidewalls resulting from shocks against rocks and
other hard objects)
• SHOCKS WITH THE TIP AGAINST HARD OBJECTS
BINDING

(the skis are designed for certain loads only, and the
skier is responsible for any excessive force used)
• OVERSTRESS (resulting from the skier’s improper
skiing technique, falls or shocks which can result in
delamination and break which cannot be accepted as
a justified warranty claim)
• ABUSE (striking with tails against a hard surface to
remove the snow, striking the two skis together,
scratches).
• IMPROPER CARE OF SKIS (in case the skier does not
have the damage repaired which can result in delami-
nation, humidity penetrating the wood core, or rust on
the inside section of the steel edges)
• IMPROPER STORAGE (storing of wet skis in unsuitable
rooms can result in rust on the steel edges which can
again result in destruction, or delamination)
• IMPROPER AFTER-SALE SERVICE (excessive grind-
ing of the tail protector, thinning of the base and steel
edges, overheating of the glued layers)

Technical Features
WAVEFLEX TECHNOLOGY
Built for on slope performance skiers looking for the
new ultimate experience in skiing. The revolutionary
flex ski construction is the newest innovation by Elan.
Traditional ski construction does not combine a soft
flex to carve turns and torsional stiffness to control the
ski on the edge. In order to be versatile on the slope in
long and short turns, skiers need both: a soft flex and
torsional stiffness. The revolutionary flex technology
combines both attributes in a unique way for fast,
stable and high-performance on slope skiing with
more comfort and easier turn initiation.

SKI
THE MAIN BENEFITS OF WAVEFLEX
TECHNOLOGY ARE:
• Better torsional stability - for improved edge grip
in long turns
• Softer flex - for easier turn innitiation in short turns
• Lightweight construction - reduces the overall
volume of the ski and weight
• Used for all Speedwave skis

TRP TOE SYSTEM
SAFETY
The 4-Roller Pincer System remains flexible at all times, absorbing short
impact peaks on ligaments and automatically recentering the boot.
Perfect 180° release action allows up to 30% higher retention force
without compromising on safety.

CONVENIENCE
Easy entry and perfect centering of the boot, no snow- or dirt clogging.

PERFORMANCE
Positive power transmission, perfect power link between boot and binding

SKI
(30% better centering accuracy than conventional cams).

ABS SYSTEM
SAFETY
Release without any friction significantly reduces strain on
ligaments in forward twisting falls. Perfect release regardless
of temperature, boot-wear, icing-up, or dirt on the binding.

CONVENIENCE
Self-cleaning design and maintenance-free.

PERFORMANCE
Best results in independent safety testing and awarded with
the TÜV high quality mark.

TMD Quick Trick System -
the NEW generation
ELAN presents the new innovative system – called TMD 1. MOUNTING - BINDINGS
QuickTrick (QT). Succeeding the TMD Junior system,
QuickTrick is suitable for both retail and the rental sector Mounting and adjusting the EL bindings is extremely
as well. simple and can be done without any additional tool.

Due to two different mid parts, TMD QuickTrick covers Make sure that the boot meets the international stan-
boot sole lengths ranging from 199 to 323 mm: the dards and is free of any functional damage. Take the
small range from 199 to 283 mm, the large range from binding parts out of the box and follow the steps on
239 to 323 mm. Covering this large mounting range the instruction leaflet. Determine the boot sole length
and offering a selection of two different binding models with the rental boot indicator (Art. no. E 162 617).
(EL 7.5 and EL 4.5) TMD QuickTrick is the ultimate
pict 2
system for kids and juniors (pict 1).

Compared to the previous TMD Junior base, the new
QT base is lower and narrower and therefore looks
much more integrated. Due to the new construction, it
can be mounted easily to skis from 90 cm onwards
without affecting the flex and performance of the ski.
Mounting and adjusting a QT binding is extremely
simple and can be done without any additional tool:
Open the toe lever and slide the toe on the rail from
the front. Lock at the appropriate boot sole length and
close the lever. Now hook the brake into the heel
housing – open the lever, slide the heel on the rail
from the back and lock it at the appropriate boot sole
marking – close the lever – and you are Quick with this
Trick.

20
Now hook the brake into the heel housing (pict 5). at the heel and the toe (pict 9). Then check the forward
pressure again. Now it should be okay.
pict 5
pict 9

SKI
Then you can open the lever and slide the heel on the
rail from the back! (pict 6).
2. ADJUSTMENT OF THE RELEASE
pict 6 VALUES
The release values at toe and heel should be determined
by the height and body weight (ISO/ ASTM) method.
Set the binding accordingly with the adjustment screws.
We recommend the use of a calibrated testing device
and that you keep a written record of whether the
system passes or fails (requirement in the US).
NOTE: Release/ Retention settings above a release
moment of 100 NM at the toe and 400 NM at the heel
are higher than the international standards recommend
and are used solely at the skier’s own risk!

3. FUNCTION CHECK
Simply lock it at the appropriate boot sole marking by Check the function of the heel. Make sure that the boot
closing the lever - and you are ready to go (pict 7). does not catch on the heel during entry and exit. Check
the brake function by pressing down the brake pedal (1)
pict 7 by hand. The brake arms (2) must open to the braking
position when the brake pedal is released (see pict 10).

pict 10

Finally, check the forward pressure, by placing a boot


into the binding. If you have followed all steps correctly,
BINDING
the indicator should rest in the marked area (pict 8).

pict 8
Check the elasticity and retention of the toe by pushing
the boot inward and outward. The binding must recenter
the boot easily and quickly from a 15 mm lateral
displacement (EL 7.5, EL 4.5 - 10 mm).

11. FINAL CHECK


• Is the proper mounting point selected?
• Functional brake test passed?
• Is the forward pressure properly adjusted?
• Are the release values of the toe and heel properly
determined and set?
If you have too much or not enough forward pressure, • Is the Instruction for use booklet ready to be handed
check the settings at first. If necessary, adjust slightly over to the customer?

Mounting Procedure ELAN Plates
1. GENERAL For skiboot tip oriented mounting only
For proper mounting use drill template 92 W. pict 50
The compatible binding-plate combinations can be
found in the coordination chart (see page 39).
All ELAN Plates can be used for skis groups G1 & G2.
If mounted for skis groups G3 & G4 the screws have to
be replaced by shorter ones, see screw chart page 38.
For mounting ESP 7.5, EL 7.5, and ELC 7.0 on ELAN-
EP Plates you have to replace the premounted screws
by screws with 8 mm penetration depth. Only with these
screws can we guarantee the right pullout strength.

2. ADJUSTING THE DRILL TEMPLATE


92 W

SKI
Unlock the adjustment lever (1) by rotating it counter-
clockwise and push it together as far as possible
(23 cm). Fix the position by rotating the adjustment
lever (1) clockwise until it stops (see template 92 W).

3. POSITIONING THE DRILL TEMPLATE


Open the jaws (4) of the template by rotating the
handles (5) and place it on the ski with the boot
midpoint indicator aligned with the mounting mark
of the ski. Small deviations between the mounting
mark of the ski and the mark on the boot can occur.
If you want to avoid that use the skiboot tip oriented
mounting procedure. For skiboot tip mounting of
ELAN PLATES align the corresponding sole length
mark on the sticker (pict 50) with the boot tip
mounting mark on the ski.

4. DRILLING THE HOLES


NOTE:
For ELAN skis: Refer to the Drill Bit chart on page 4.
Other skis: If not otherwise specified by the ski All ELAN plates and system bases

For mounting junior bindings on ELAN PLATES you
have to replace the pre-mounted screws by screws
with 8 mm penetration depth. Only with these screws
can we guarantee the right pullout strength (see page

FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE BELOW:
1. Add together the weight of the components you
want to mount ski + plate + binding.
2. Add together the thickness of the components you
want to mount ski + plate + binding.
3. Using the list below, determine which ELAN brakes
are standard on the bindings delivered.
4. Find the value on the vertical axis which corres-
ponds to the sum of the addition for the standheight.
5. Follow the horizontal axis on the matrix to the right
until you find the value which corresponds to the
total weight on the horizontal axis.
6. If the point of intersection of the weight and stand-
height lie below the respective curve, the brake will

function properly.
7. If the point of intersection lies above the curve for
the POWER BRAKE/long, using this combination of
ski + binding + plate is not possible. In this case,
you have the following possibilities to come within
the permitted range:.
a) Reduce the total thickness through:
– a thinner plate,
– a ELAN binding with less standheight
(see page 14 and 18).
b) Reduce the total weight to
– a lighter plate, e. g. a
EP 9.0 PLATE
– a ELAN binding with less weight,
– a lighter ski.
c) Use a combination of a) + b).

RENTAL/DEMO OF PARTIAL SYSTEMS


Many shops rent their customers partial ski equipment
systems. Boots only if customers own their own skis
with bindings, or skis and bindings if the customers
own their own boots.
Additionally some shops utilize on-hill “demo days” as
a means by which new products can be tested and
evaluated by potential buyers.
In order to offer these skiers the same level of care as
that afforded under the preceding procedures, the
following guidelines should be used:

RENTAL OF SKIS / BINDINGS ONLY:


CUSTOMER - OWNED BOOTS
Although the retail test procedure may be applied in
this case, it is often impractical to require actual system
testing, especially in on-hill situations. In lieu of retail
testing, the following procedures may be employed:
1. The ski/binding system to be rented or demoed
should be tested “pre-season” using a boot which
passes the ELAN Boot Visual Inspection.
2. The skier’s boot should also pass the Visual Inspec-
tion. If any questions exist regarding the quality of

BINDING
the boot, retail-type testing should be used.
3. The binding should be adjusted and its indicators
set per current ELAN recommendation.
4. A full record noting appropriate customer information
and binding settings should be kept by the individual
or organization responsible for the adjustment.
5. After seven days of use, the ski/binding system
should be tested according to the In-Season
Inspection Procedures previously described.
NOTE: for U.S. and Canada:
Signatures by both the customer and ELAN Certified
Mechanic are required on all shop forms to qualify for
the ELAN Dealer Indemnify Program.

2. CHECK MATERIAL pict 60


• Binding contact surfaces require a high quality hard,
low-friction material. Check both lower shell and any
separately attached inserts.
• If you can easily scratch the surface of the sole with
your fingernail, that’s an indication of extremely soft
material that can degrade system performance.

3. CHECK CONDITION OF BINDING

NOTE:
Any boot which passes points 3, 4 and 5, as well as
conforming to the Visual Inspection Checklist, may be
accepted for use with ELAN bindings.
Boots which fail any point should be repaired or
replaced.
These checks apply only to boots used with ELAN
bindings. Consult other binding manufacturers for their
used boot specifications.

CLEAN VS. LUBRICATED SKI BOOT TEST


This test is designed to determine the influence of a
given boot on the release characteristic of a binding.
It should be performed on boots not meeting all the
points of the ELAN boot visual inspection criteria, or
if measured release values fall outside the system
“inspection” tolerance. It is seen as the “last chance”
for a boot to qualify before getting eliminated from
inventory.
1. Clean the boot(s) to be tested with soap and water.
Allow to dry.

BINDING
2. Select an appropriate ELAN “reference” binding that
has displayed release values within the inspection
tolerance on the ELAN Adjustment Chart. Clean the
binding’s boot contact surfaces with soap and water
and allow to dry.
3. Test the binding and boot in Twist and Forward Lean
at a mid-scale indicator value (Only one direction of
twist is required).
4. In a further test run lubricate all boot/binding contact
areas with soapy water. Retest in Twist and Forward
Lean.
5. Results of each lubricated test should be within 20%
of the corresponding results when tested clean. Any
boot which fails this test should not be used with a
ELAN binding.

A worn or damaged drill template could create a lot of pict 74
trouble. Please check your templates periodically:
1. Position the fully extended drill template on a
discarded ski.
2. Turn the clamping lever to open the clamping jaws
of the mounting template.
3. Position the template properly on the ski so that the
boot center marking is aligned with the mounting
point described on the ski.
4. Let go of the clamping lever. The template clamps
automatically.
5. Drill all the holes.
6. Remove the mounting template and clean the ski.
7. Measure the holes with a slide gauge.
8. The distance of the screw holes to the edge of the
ski must be equal for each pair of related holes.
The deviation must not be more than 1 mm.

Troubleshooting release/retention problems
IF THE SKIER REPORTS A RELEASE OR
RETENTION PROBLEM:
• Re-inspect the equipment to make sure that all com-
ponents are in good condition and function properly.
• Test the system to make sure that it is calibrated
properly.
• Have the skier use the “Classify Yourself” materials
to make certain that the correct Skier Type has been
selected.
If component inspections and a calibration check
do not reveal a problem the skier may requesting

INFORMATION FOR SKIERS REQUESTING

SKI
DISCRETIONARY SETTINGS.
1. Your normal release/retention settings comply with
ISO/ASTM standards. Although these guidelines may
be inappropriate for some types of competitive skiing
or competition training, they are believed to provide
an effective compromise between the release and
retention needs of most recreational skiers.
2. Adhering to these guidelines may help to reduce the
risk of injuries resulting from improper release/
retention setting selection. However, skiing involves
inherent risks. Injury can result from simply falling
down, impact with an object, or from many other
actions. Many injuries are unrelated to the function
of the release system. Furthermore, even a properly
adjusted binding cannot protect the skier in all
situations.

3. Difficulties with release or retention may be unrelated


to release/retention settings and can result from your
skiing style, the incompatibility of your boots and
bindings, or wear, damage, or contamination of a
component of the release system. Be sure to describe
your circumstances to the shop technician and to
authorize recommended inspections and repairs
before proceeding.

4. If you have been dissatisfied with the release/retention


settings that result from your normal skier classification,
you may wish to consider changing your skier classifi-
cation, designating skier type classifications that are
different for twist and forward lean, or request dis-
cretionary release/retention settings that are higher

BINDING
or lower than the normal range.
Lower settings correspond to an increase in the risk
of inadvertent binding release in order to gain in-
creased releasability in a fall.
Higher settings correspond to a decrease in releas-
ability in a fall in order to gain a decreased risk of
inadvertent binding release.
5. Although the shop technician may help you to record
your choice on the appropriate form, the final decision
on your release/retention settings is yours.

All that’s involved is properly informing the skier about
the realities of skiing and ski equipment.
• Explain the function and operation of the binding,
including a review of the manufacturer’s pamphlet.
• Explain the settings that show in the release setting
windows and how they were derived by referring to
the manufacturer’s release adjustment charts.
• Explain how much proper maintenance of the entire
system (boots, bindings and skis) can improve their
enjoyment and margins for safety. Also make it clear
that skiing, like any sport, has its risks, and equipment
can not eliminate them.
• Have the customer sign the form again indicating that

ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
I understand how this equipment works and have received proper instruction and satisfac-
tory answers to any questions. If at any time this equipment does not seem to be working
properly, I will stop using it immediately and return it for inspection and possible repair or
adjustment. If this equipment is to be used by someone other than me, I certify that I am
acting for the ultimate user and that I will provide this form and all other warnings and
information to the ultimate user. I understand and agree that skiing, snowboarding, ski-
boarding and related activities are HAZARDOUS and that injuries are common and ordinary

DEATH which may result from these activities.

(Please Initial _____________________)

If Alpine ski equipment or skiboards are beeing furnished, I understand that the ski-boot-bind-
ing system will release the boot from the ski when certain forces on system reach preset val-
ues, but that it will NOT RELEASE OR RETAIN at all times where release or retention may
prevent injury, and that it CANNOT prevent all injuries or guarantee the user’s safety. I under-
stand and agree that unwanted release or retention of bindings is an inherent risk of using any
ski-boot-binding system. I further agree and understand that any ski-boot-binding system
does NOT ELIMINATE THE RISK of injuries to the user’s knees or to any other part of this
user’s body.

If Nordic or Snowboard equipment is being furnished, I understand that these systems


normally will NOT RELEASE in falls and accidents and that they do NOT PROTECT against
any type of injury.

and distributors of this equipment, from ANY AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY OR LEGAL
LIABILITY for any injuries, damages or death to any user of any equipment listed on this form,
whether caused by NEGLIGENCE or any other cause. I further agree that I WILL NEVER SUE
this ski shop, as well as the manufacturers and distributors of this equipment, and that I WILL
DEFEND AND INDEMNITY them if any claim or action is pursued for any injuries, damages
or death relating to skiing, snowboarding. skiboarding or any related activities involving the
use of this equipment.
