B&D Ski Leashes

$36.95

The backcountry ski touring leash from B&D is designed to alleviate the need to detach and attach your skis while putting on your climbing skins. The 1980s phone-style elastic cord stretches enough so you can lift your skis to put on your skins. This means you won’t lose your ski during transitions. It also allows for more slack in the line when your bindings release in a fall. Last but certainly not least, the leashes come with a breakaway feature to help prevent your skis from pulling you under in an avalanche. With enough force, a link in the chain brakes so you can swim to safety (hopefully, *gulp*).

  • Coiled cord dissipates energy in a fall, reducing peak force on the leash.
  • Two fuse links included that will break at either 40lb or 60lb of force.
  • Also comes with Vinyl tubing to protect the cord in wear areas.
  • Cords extend to 6 feet, which may keep your sharp edges away.
  • Snap-hook is easy to operate with gloves for quick operation.
  • Cord can be wrapped around your boot to stay out of the way.

Question from Liam Dakota
 
Do these leashes work with the fritschi tecton 12 and tecnica cochise 120?

Answer from Cole P
 
Hi Liam. These are incredibly versatile. I don't have a Cochise here but you'd be hard-pressed to find a binding/boot combo these won't work with.

Question from Dan
 
Can these be attached to the Marker Alpinist? I haven't used leashes with them, but supposedly the attachment point for the Alpinists is really small/hard to thread after having mounted the binding.

Answer from Daniel S
 
To answer my own question, it looks like just buying a thin stainless steel loop (a quick search for "wire loop" on Amazon brings up options; there may be an option form SkiMo, but I haven't found it yet) should bridge the compatibility gap. I plan to order a pair of these today and will update this post if I run into any issues!

Hey Daniel, I'm in the same situation. Did they end up working for you?
1/16/2022
Answer from Daniel S
 
Yep, I just got everything set up this morning. You do need a thin wire loop (1.5mm worked for me). Importantly, you can't thread the wire loop straight through the hole on the toe of the Alpinist while the binding is mounted. However, you can kink the steel cable, pull it through using a pick, and put a girth hitch in it. I think the attached picture adds some clarity. To emphasize: I do not think I could have gotten the steel cable through the binding without the pick. The only downside I see to this is that there's a little fraying of the steel cable where I pulled on it with the pick, but I'm pretty confident that it's still way stronger than the BND breakaway plastic bits.

Great leashes and 100x better than any leash included with bindings. You can put it on in the morning and in most cases won't need to unclip it all day.

It is strong, durable and long. My boots (travers cs) do not have a connection point so I ended up putting a keyring on the tongue pull tab on the boot liners. This adds a little bit more distance compared to a normal connection point and eliminates the concern that the leash will be too long as stated in lance j's review. No need to wrap them around the cuff, which I haven't tried myself, but looks and sounds annoying and frustrating.

Overall a solid upgrade and definitely one of the highest improvements per dollar I've spent on ski gear!

Question from Madolyn
 
Can these be attached to just about any binding? Looks like they clip easily to a Dynafit which I’ve got on my touring setup. I’d like to use them on my Marker Griffin 13 ID bindings that I’ve got on my inbound setup so I don’t lose my skis in the pow when I’m getting a little too sendy. Thanks!

Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Madolyn, yes that is correct. If there isn't a specific spot to clip on the binding, quite often you can just get some small diameter cord and loop it around something on the binding to have a spot to clip.

Question from Dave

Answer from Will M
 
Hey Dave,

Great question! The entire leash, including the hardware, is just about 10''. Just the coil is right around 7".

For starters, I am not a fan of ski brakes. I prefer a leash - it makes me more confident that my ski is going to stay a ski and not turn into a scavenger hunt. After a day on the stock Dynafit leashes that came with my Speed Radicals, I decided that I wanted a bit more length and versatility with the leash. Fortunately, I'd seen these leashes while looking on B&D's website for some toe riser plates for the same bindings (before SkiMo.co carried B&D, otherwise I would have ordered from you guys...).

The pros of the B&D leashes are that they have a break link that will separate you and your skis in the event of an avalanche, and that they have plenty of length to keep you out of harm's way if you yard on the descent. The long and short of these leashes (not sure whether the pun was intended or not) is that they work, and they are a nice upgrade from the Dynafit leashes in my opinion.

The only down side of the leashes is that they are long, so if you prefer to clip to the front of your boot, you'll end up with a lot of extra leash flopping around, and if you leash around your cuff, I keep getting them stuck in my walk/ski lever. Neither situation is awful, and if I just stopped and thought for a second as I was attaching the leashes when I'm in walk mode at the bottom of the mountain, then the second issue would be solved.
