Replacement brakes might be necessary if you move your bindings to a ski with a different width. You also might misplace your Vipec brakes since they are easily removable, a handy feature. See below for some various brake options.

Vipec/Tecton Brakes – Also known as Diamir Tech Brakes, these are replacement brakes for the Fritschi Vipec, Vipec EVO, and Tecton bindings. They are available in several widths, starting with 80mm for skinny skis and ending with 120mm for fatties. They are attached with brake plate kits that ship with the bindings or with replacements kits found here. Attachment plate kits are not included, despite the photo showing them.

Xenic Brakes - Add-on stoppers for the cool new Xenic binding. Available in several widths, starting with 85mm and ending with 105mm.

Question from dave
 
So if I have a full set of Tecton brakes ( including the brake attachments etc), if i removed the brake plate kits and just have the bare brakes ( with the plastic stomper plate), could I use a 'bare' Tecton brake on a Xenic binding ( see photo attached)? Or does the Xenic brake need its own attachments too?

Answer from Tim
 
Hi Dave,
Unfortunately no, the Tecton brakes and the Xenic brakes are not compatible . The wire gate is a bit different as well as the thickness of the pad you would be stepping on. Even if you were able to get the Tecton to fit into the Xenic holder, I would be concerned about the brake causing you to pre-release vertically.

Question from Erin
 
What is the widest ski waist the 100mm (tectonic or vipec) brakes are compatible with? If I got skis with a waist closer to 110, would I be able to bend the 100mm brakes enough to work, or would they get hung up too much?
12/4/2020
Answer from Cole P
 
Hey Erin, I would just try to go with the 110mm brakes. You can usually bend them around 3-6mm total but 10mm would be pushing it.

Hey, do you guys just have the brake without the assembly? I see them on Amazon for $29 but I want to support you all.

Hey Brad, thanks for reaching out! What binding model and brake width are you looking for?

Answer from Brad M
 
Hey Teddy. I have the Tecton 12 with a 90 brake but looking for a 100 or 110 and don't need the plastic assembly piece, just the brake itself.

Answer from Teddy Young
 
It looks like we only have these available with the plastic assembly, my apologies!

Question from Gary
 
Looking to buy Tectons and wondering about brake size. Skis are 112 under foot, but want to avoid pre-release of brakes by order the smallest brakes that would clear. Thinking the 100mm brakes and slightly tweak them if needed rather than go with 110mm and have them stick out too far. Thoughts?
11/16/2020
Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Gary, I would just stick with the 110mm brake option. You still have just the right amount in order to clear the ski so they shouldn't get caught up. Hope this helps!

Question from ben
 
Hi. Can you let me know if the plastic plate marked in red is included in the sale of the brakes. Mine has snapped and no longer holds the break in uphill mode. If it doesn't include this plate do you know if it possible to purchase this part individually? Ben

Answer from Will
 
Hey Ben,

Looks like both the Xenic and Tecton come with what is included in the photo on the right. Sadly, we've never been able to get any of those extra brake holding pieces!

Question from Alex
 
I read on another site that Fritschi brakes are interchangeable. They made it sound like Vipec brakes could be used on the Xenic. Can you confirm?
I'm looking at pairing Xenics with 116 underfoot skis. Thanks!
9/29/2020
Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Alex, Fritschi brakes are not interchangeable between models. You should be all set with getting those 105mm brakes though, because they do stretch a fair amount.

Hi
Will these work with Fritschi Scout bindings?

Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Micah. Unfortunately these are listed to work with the Vipec, Vipec EVO, and Tecton bindings but not the Scout.

Question from Jack
 
Hi, I'm thinking about purchasing the Evo 12 and was wondering if the 120mm brakes will fit a 124mm ski? I don't think there's a bigger brake size right?
4/12/2020
Answer from Jeff
 
Jack, Yes the 120mm should work fine. They may be wide enough, but if not, only a slight bend should do the trick.

Question from Brad
 
Hey Guys,
I picked up a new pair of tectons in the box with a size 120 brake. I’m wondering if you would ever consider allowing me to swap them for a 90 or 100mm brake? Local, no shipping. Thank you for your consideration.
10/29/2019
Answer from Jeff
 
Brad, sorry, right now we don't have sufficient inventory to make that swap.

Question from Jacob
 
Hi,

I have a vipec binding on my carbon converts (~105 waist). I purchased them in 2017 and I believe they were the previous years model (not the evo). The size from the order was "L." Anyway, the brakes *fit* but they are just slightly too small and typically will not engage without a kick or push. Will the 110mm size be ample for these skis?
3/5/2019
Answer from Jeff
 
Jacob, It is perfectly acceptable to bend the arms out a bit. If that doesn't work, you can order the 110, that will work for sure.

Question from eric
 
I mounting a pair of FRITSCHI VIPEC EVO 12s on a 95 ski, and i thought the 100 size brake would be right, but (based on on a prior answer) if that brake fits a 108 ski according to Black Diamond, is it too wide for a 95? Thanks
11/12/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi eric, Fritschi redid their brake sizing last year and the 108 comment no longer applies. I would recommend the 100 for you.

Question from Phil
 
Got my wife zero g blizzards with an 85mm waist. Would the 100mm be right or the 80mm?
10/29/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Phil! 80mm might clear, 100mm would likely be too big though. Ideally I'd like to see you on a 90mm brake, though it looks like we don't have that at the moment. Let me know if you'd like me to set you up for an email notification when we get those in!

Question from Alexandra
 
Hi there,

Do you think the 100mm brakes would work on 102mm Faction Agents?

Saw your reply to 103 soul owner's post above, but also read your reply to Fedor which points out that the 100mm brakes can work for up to 108mm (according to BD, at least).

Context: Just bought Tectons w/ 110mm brakes from a friend (new, unused), but am concerned the brakes are too wide.

Thanks in advance--stoked to try the new setup in the Wasatch this winter!

Answer from Nate
 
Hi Alexandra, I think in your case that the 100mm brakes will likely have enough clearance to work.

Question from Matthew
 
Hi!

I'm looking at getting the tecton but can only get them with a 90mm brake do you think it'd be OK bending the brakes to fit a 110mm ski?
4/23/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Matthew, that's a big stretch. I doubt you could do it without really compromising the function.

Question from Tim
 
A friend is selling me his Fritche tectron 12 -110 mm bindings un-used. I have Rossignol soul 7s which are about 103mm at the waist. This should mean that the 110mm brakes are right but they seem way too wide - see image attached. Is your 110mm binding 7" wide at the widest point like the one in the photo?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Tim, the arms are held closer together when you install them.

Question from Paul L
 
What size brake would you recommend for a Fischer Hannibal with a 94 waist? I have read the 95 is a very tight 95? Thanks
8/30/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Paul. We just measured the inside of the 95 brake shoulder width (the narrowest point) at 97mm, so if you don't have a sloping sidewall then there's a small chance you'll have to bend it out, but it should clear just fine.
