Moving Dynafit bindings from one ski to another often requires a brake change to accommodate the new width. Brakes can also get damaged. Please note ► "Some of the Dynafit brakes listed below the line" are priced individually so you will need two in the former case or one if replacing damage. The brakes have a few millimeters of wiggle room, so a 100mm brake will work on a ski slightly over 100mm in underfoot width.
Superlite 2.0 75mm x2 - Removable TLT Superlite 2.0 brakes, in a 75mm width for skinny skis.

Tito (used product regularly)
I wanna buy a Dynafit Meteorite ski(waist 96 and 97 in the longer versions) with Radical ST 2 bindings.
In 2017 these bindings come in 90 and then jumps all the way to 105 mm in the brakes. So, Some people tell me that they can "open" the brakes in the 90 mm version, but the difference between the ski (97) and the brakes (90) seems to me like it is too much open. Would you recommend the 90 on the 96? And on 97 would go with 105 mm?
Hey Tito! I tried the 90mm ST 2.0 on the Dynafit Denali (97mm waist) and it cleared just fine. It was tight, but no problem. Coulda gone a bit wider even. It's entirely possible that you could bend them out just a bit to get them to fit a bit better, but let's just say if it was my own personal ski, I wouldn't even bother bending it.
I've browsed the old FAQ here and I hope I have not missed a duplicate to my questions.
1) Dynafit Superlite for current year Superlite BInding: Is the brake easily removable for certain tour and and backcountry needs, or is the process a little more involved?
2) I have read as many sizing questions as possible on the FAQ. I have BD Link 95s (slopping sidewall, 95 at edges throughout waist). Based on all the comments it seems likely the 90 brake will be fine. Does this seem right to you?
1) The brake is extremely easy to install, slightly less easy to remove but still easy. There are two pins you'll need to push simultaneously to get the brakes off, which is much more difficult in the field than a warm shop, but can absolutely be done.
2) Without modification, no. If you bend them out a bit, you could totally get it to work. I tested the 90 brake on a DPS Cassiar 95, Movement Alp Tracks 94, and a BD Helio 95 and the brake didn't clear on any of them, but it was close enough that bending them just a smidge would solve those issues.
I am looking to swap my bindings around between a few skis. I have a few questions: 1) Is swapping relatively easy? As in, if I mount my bindings with Quiver Killers, is it relatively straightforward to move the heel between different brakes, or am I headed down the wrong path? 2) Does swapping the bindings around impact the warranty? 3) Does using these brakes purchased separately impact the warranty? 4) My current bindings are Radical ST 2.0 with 90mm brakes mounted on a pair of Volkl BMT 94 skis. The bindings are mounted boot center. I think that the brakes may have been bent slightly to accommodate this mounting. Would these mount okay on a pair of Dynafit Nanga Parbat skis? Or should I consider a different binding altogether as the ski is somewhat narrow?
I plan on buying an additional set of 120mm brakes for mounting on Dynafit Hokkaido skis.
Hi rpkelly22, it's fairly straightforward to move the housing to a different baseplate/brake, which does not affect your warranty status. That said, it's not something I'd care to do daily. Be careful when screwing the rear adjustment screw as it can cross-thread. I doubt you needed to bend the 2.0 90mm brakes as they are fairly accommodating but also retract well for skinnier skis. I'd go with a lighter binding for the Nanga's :)
