The patented brakes from Kreuzspitze are cool removable devices that slide into your crampon slot. They are secured by a simple locking switch (included) that is mounted with a single screw under your foot. Take them off when skinning uphill, slide them back on before skiing down. The brakes will retract when you lock your heel into ski mode and deploy when you have a yard sale. Great for visiting resorts which require brakes. Comes in 75mm, 90mm, and 105mm widths that weigh an average of 90 grams (3.2 ounces).
Also available are additional mounts so you can use one set of brakes for multiple sets of skis.
** Note that the brakes are incompatible with bindings that have extended toe plates or connector plates between the toe and heel pieces, e.g. the Radical FT. They are compatible with all race bindings with crampon attachments and touring bindings such as the Speed Radical.
Hi, what size would you please recommend for the La sportiva RST 2.0 ski? It is 77mm in the waist. Will the 75mm break work? Thanks
We paired these bindings with my wife's Movement Balance skis with Dynafit Superlite 1.0. She uses these skis as her primary resort ski as well as her BC ski. These work extremely well. Very simple and reliable. They are very easy to remove for BC use, and they easily slide into the crampon attachment when she skis at the resort. The "switch" which is mounted to the ski, under the forefoot is easy to use, and looks to be nearly weightless. There is no interference when entering or exiting the binding. Five stars for an ingenious, but simple design which works flawlessly.
