The Kreuzspitze Heel Brakes are a fantastic accessory for the skier with a light setup who wants (or needs) brakes. This permanent brake is meant to be screwed on underneath the heel piece while mounting the binding on the ski-- Kreuzspitze also offers a removable version (found here), which clips onto the ski crampon attachment point. Like many pin tech bindings with brakes, while in touring mode this brake locks out, but while in ski mode these brakes are held down by the clipped-in boot heel and will deploy if you eject from the binding. Weighing in at an airy 123g/per brake, the Kreuzspitze Heel Brakes are a great way to add a margin of error to your lightweight ski setup.
Compatible with the Dynafit Radical 1.0 heel pattern, including the Speed Turn, Speed Radical, and Plum Guide.
Not compatible with Kreuzspitze EL or GT bindings due to pin height differences.
All the metal on this brake is a durable steel, and is built to last for years.
Brake clips into locked mode with simple heel pressure.
Available in brake widths of 85, 100, and 115mm.
123 grams per brake.
Are these brakes sold as a pair? Or are they $99.95, per *individual* brake?
Bonjour Richard du la Randonnee! The Heel Brakes are designed for the exact heel-pin heights of the Dynafit Speed Turn/Speed Radical or the Plum Guide, so unfortunately they would not work with a race binding like the SCTT. Kreuzspitze does make a heel brake model specifically for their race heels, so don't hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are searching for a pair.
Thinking about getting the EL bindings to mount on my Moment Wildcat Tour 108. I prefer a lightweight pin bindings with a brake. Are these brakes compatible with the EL bindings? Do these come with the screws? If not, will it require longer screws?
