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: These 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.

Size 105

I bought these for dynafit speed radical bindings/black diamond convert 105 skis/Dynafit Neo boots.

They function perfectly. Very easy to install.

They seem lighter, but not as rugged as dynafit brakes.

I would not recommend a ski much wider than 105.

Question from Mike
 
Would these work with Speed Turns with 4mm toe shims? Can I put a 4mm shim under them to make level? Thank you!
1/9/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mike, these work best with the toe flat on the ski. It's possible they will bend a little bit to be OK with a shim but it is not ideal.

Question from SteveR
 
My Kreuzspitze toe pieces are mounted on the Kreuzspitze Toe Shift Plate. Would this brake still fit?
9/4/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Steve, thanks for reaching out. These need to be flush with the top-sheet, so if your toe piece is mounted on the shift plate it won't work. You could potentially fabricate an "extender" with a longer bolt to lift the locking mech off the top sheet in order to keep the brakes where they need to be, but just lifted a bit to match the height of the shift plate. In short, no, it won't work with the toe shift plate.

Question from Adam
 
I have Soul 7s with a 106 waist. Will the 105 brake be able to fit? I have speed radical bindings on them.
4/8/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Adam, if it's a true 106mm waist then you're probably good, however there is still potential for it to require bending to get it to fit. For what it's worth, I tried the 105mm brake on a DPS Wailer 106 and found that there was extra room. However, the sidewall shape can effect brake deployment and it may be different on your skis.

Question from Vlado
 
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
1/11/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Vlado, the brakes would likely require a little bending to get on the RST, which may compromise the stopping ability. The 90s would operate more easily.

Question from Joe
 
Oh... one last question - are thes compatible with G3 ION series. I suspect not, but it's worth asking
11/30/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Joe, these won't work with the IONs unfortunately as they required a Dynafit-style crampon slot.

Question from Joe
 
I assume a 105mm brake fits a 105mm ski, or is that a tight fit and I should be prepared to do some bending?
11/30/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Joe, yes it should. There might be an exceptional case for a big boot on a ski with a tight radius and steep sidewall, but you should be fine without bending.

Question from Lee
 
Can the 105 brake be bent out to accommodate a wider ski with a waist around 112mm
10/27/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Lee, unfortunately they won't stretch quite that far and still work well.

Question from Steve
 
Would these work with the Dynafit Speed Turn 2.0 Bindings?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Steve, yes they work with any binding with a Dynafit-style crampon slot.

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.

Question from Oscar
 
Hi! Are these stoppers compatible with Plum Guide bindings? And if so, I have a ski that is 93mm in the waist, will the 105mm break work or is it too wide?

Regards, Oscar.
1/21/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Oscar, yes these will slide in the crampon slot of the Guide binding. 105 would work fine.

Question from John B
 
Hey JBo! I was wondering what size you would recommend for the Hagan Cirrus ski (at a 170cm length)? It seems like the 75 would work perfectly. Just wanting to confirm. Thank you!
1/19/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi John, yeah the 75 is the ticket!

Question from Shane Ingram
 
Hi there, any idea when the 105 mm width brakes will come in ? I was wanting to place an order with some other items that would arrive in Australia to allow for for fitting before we leave on Jan 22.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Shane, we have some 105s in stock now.

Question from Magnus
 
For a pair of BD Carbon Aspect, I should go with the 90mm width?
11/17/2015
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Magnus, depending on the length of your boot, the 90mm brakes fit perfectly or possibly require just a slight bend to fit the Aspects.

Question from Bernard
 
Do the brakes also work with Scarpa F1-boots? Normally there would be those black spacers underneath the soles in order to prevent the boot from too much flexing when skiing down. Are the brakes sturdy enough to serve as replacements e.g. in my Dynafit Speed Turn bindings?
3/23/2015
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Bernard, your Speed Turns have brakes? I would say these aren't quite as beefy as Radical ST/FT brakes, but can certainly stop a ski. As far as the F1, you wouldn't be able to use supports and this brake at the same time, but the brake could offer some support itself.

Answer from Phil H
 
I noticed in a Kreuzspitze video about these brakes, the skier is using F1s…

Question from John Baldwin
 
Can the brake be locked so that you can leave it on your ski while you walk uphill?
12/21/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hi John, there is no locking mechanism so you need to remove the brake for uphill (untwist the mounted lock and it slide out of the crampon slot).

Question from John Baldwin
 
Do you carry the 105mm wide model? Its not listed in the menu options for brake width?
12/18/2014
Answer from jbo
 
Hi John, Kreuzspitze just added that length and we will have some in our next shipment. Probably not till January realistically.
