Can you switch HO Approach bindings?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at purchasing a used slalom with HO Approach bindings. The problem is that it's set up left foot forward and I'm right foot forward. Can the bindings be switched or am I out of luck?

Yes, you just swap the footbed. It unscrews on the bottom.

The bindings can't be switched, however I am pretty sure that they went away from the Front left and front right option. What I am trying to say is that you should be able to use it as is. There is no left and right boot anymore, just a front and back

Edit: Brodie is right. you can swap plates. I am sure the Animals front and rear boots are differen't though in which case you don't want to switch them. The Approaches I am not sure

With Animals, the whole boot is foot specific, with Approaches, only the footbed is foot specific. I have both, and I switched my Approaches when I bought them.

Thanks for the help guys. Interesting that we're all from the Minneapolis area.

No problem. THe Approach bindings take some getting used to. I hated them at first, as they are not nearly as comfortable as my Animals, but what I like about them is that they have more forward lean to them which forces you to bend your knees more, and has helped my skiing.
