    I just bought extant Voile TTS. Do I return and wait for the new ones?

For me it always was climbing on icy skin tracks and have a ski lose traction and dramatically slide back forcing knee to rapidly drop forward and jacking boot out of toe.

      It's this. Can happen with almost any pin toe if the boot rotates far enough forward.

        I have two sets of the current Voile TTS, and 2 sets of self-assembled TTS.

        The current Voile setup seems more fool-proof and failsafe than the DIY setups. Not to say the Voile's can't be improved, but I'm not sure the planned improvements will be enough to get me to replace the ones I have.

          Got the new beta Voile TTS. Lookin' sweet. Back in black. Should have some time on them to report by March.

          Hint: Toe hole pattern is 30 X 26.5

              Ah, so they're using leftover OMG toepieces (haha, the horrors!). I would have expected ATK, since BD OEMs their AT rigs, but Plum makes nice stuff too.

                Dynafit and Plum uses that pattern. ATK, Kreuz and Ski trab uses 30*27mm

                    Admittedly I don’t pay as much attention to the DIY TTS or the OEM versions. But I was wondering if the new Voile toe unit would have a “releasable” function, even if not TUV certified? Apologies if this has been discussed somewhere else in the forum.

                      I ski with the toe unlocked(ski mode) on the up and down. Have released a time or two on the up, never on the down. When the heel cables are attached, release is questionable(Using the proto Voile tts with 10-15 or so days).

                        I think Dosite's hint means that the toe is either a Dynafit Speed Turn toe or a Plum toe (probably the former), so not DIN certified but potentially releasable in the unlocked position.

                          I think Dynafit has completely abandoned that hole pattern. The newer Speed Turn is 30x39.

                            Correct. Skimo's Hole Pattern Recognition webpage refers to that as Speed Turn 2.0. So maybe Voile went with Plum, Turn 1.0 (if they still exist), Dostie copied the wrong dimensions in his hint, or he's just f'cking with us.

                            Regardless, IMO, the main issue with Voile's first round of a TTS binding was the manual closing toe piece. The spring step-in ones seem far easier to engage (and can release), so Voile TTS 2.0 may be the cat's meow of TTS bindings.

                              If the Type1 toe is replaced by a Dynafit type, does this just make it another TTS? Shame, good to have something different. Mind you you can still buy the type1toe as sold for splitboarders and add heel springs
                              The type1 toe is an agricultural version of the Grizzly, which appears to works in Skimo, so once got the knack the entry / exit must be ok.
