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.
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!
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?
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.
I’m looking for FRITSCHI VIPEC BRAKES size 100 mm for black VIPEC bindings (model 2015-16).
However brakes on the picture on this page are not for Vipec bindings. These brakes are for different FRITSCHI bindings: Eagle and Freeride. Also specification of the brakes sizes is different compare to what Diamir has on their website. They say that brakes for Vipec bindings have the following sizes: 80 / 90 / 100 / 115 mm. But sizes on your site are 95 and 108 mm. Please clarify what kind of Fritschi brakes do you have?
Hi Fedor, thanks for pointing out the issue with our photo. It should now correctly show the Vipec brakes. Black Diamond, who distributes Fritschi in North America, lists the maximum ski size the brakes will fit which is larger than the spec sizes that Fritschi uses. The 100 is the same as the 108.
