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.

Question from Jim
 
Could I add these brakes to my skimo race setup to make it ISMF compliant?
1/29/2022
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Jim. So long as you have a crampon slot and are willing to mount a locking switch, these could work. Do keep in mind they have to be taken off the ski while skinning and reinstalled while skiing, which could be prohibitive if you're concerned about time/efficiency.

Will,
Does this brake attach to the Kreuz telealp block crampon slot? Would like to add Meidjo Alpine Hees and have a brake inbounds. Would lock brake up if tele inbounds. Do you selk the Meidjo heel?
1/5/2022
Answer from Will McD
 
Hi Eric, these will work with the Kreuzspitze crampon receptors, though if you use it w/ the telealp plate you will likely need to make a shim of some sort for the top of the brake pad as the telealp plate raises the toepiece up above the ski. Unfortunately, we do not carry the Meidjo heel.

Question from Scott
 
Hi - I just measured skis with calipers at the spot where these mount behind the toe piece (thanks for the photo posted above in the questions), getting 89.7mm - 89.9 mm. Will the 90 mm size work? Thanks!

Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey Scott, those 90mm brakes should work for you, and you can bend them out a millimeter or two if they seem snug!

Question from Eric K
 
Would your removable brake work with this toe crampon slot? Also which crampons work with this Dynafit toe plate?
Thanks!
12/24/2021
Answer from Will McD
 
Hey Eric, The Kreuzspitze tech brake is compatible with that toe, however the black shim that is right behind the toe in your photo will prevent the brake from sitting flat on the ski and ergo won't work with that block in place. The same is true for any of the ski crampons, the shim behind the toe will prevent them from operating.

Will,
Any chance this will slide into the Kreug telealp plate crampon slot? I’m considering adding the Meidjo heel and adding the brake when using the heel inbounds. Do you guys sell the Meidjo Alpine Heel?

Question from Eric K
 
Are these compatible with 1st gen Dynafit TLTs?
11/10/2021
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for reaching out, Erik. The Kreuzspitze Tech Brakes are designed to fit into the crampon receptor located on the binding toe piece. Because your binding has a slightly elongated toe plate, these won't work. However, ATK makes a universal brake that would work! Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Andy (downright abused product)
 
Holy cow these brakes are just what the Dr. ordered.... It takes a little getting used to having them under the front toe peice, but after a few loops you'll dial them in. I use mine on three different sets of skis, Voile Vector V6 BC's, DPS Pagodas, Rossignol Bandits B4-spring rock skis... The huge upside is that you don't have them on during the ascent. I paired them with Dynafit Speed-Radicals and fly. The on and off during transition is a snap, even on powder days. Remember to put them on before you take off your skins:) I installled them on my own; no problems. They are well constucted, but still light weight enough to carry in your pocket on the uphill.....The carry bag that is supplied is of top quality condura. As others have mentioned above, these brakes turn my superlite BC Skis into reort skis too.

Question from liming z
 
I have Dynafit speed turn and Lange XT boot with alpine sole(not the grip walk), is the crampon will pressed down properly in ski mode? Could you measure how higher when fully pressed, and how far from crampon slot? then I can measure my boot sole gap under the binding to see how it will fit. Thanks in advance!
1/25/2020
Answer from TSB
 
Hi Liming, I'm not sure if I entirely understand your question but I'll give it my best shot! In ski mode, the top of the contact plate of the Tech Brakes sits about 0.8cm from the surface of the ski, just about flush with the crampon attachment. That puts the front of the contact plate within 0.5cm of the crampon bar. In its deployed/braking state, it's about 2.8cm from the surface of the ski. We don't have any Lange boots in the shop to test with, but I can't see a reason why this wouldn't work with either XT sole.

alaska matt (used product a few times)
 
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

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.

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?

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