Plum Leashes

Leashes can be very valuable if you’re prone to dropping your skis off a mountain. The Plum leashes are a coiled cable and carabiner that can be hitched to your toe pieces and then to your boot. The length is spot on for a perfect amount of versatility without getting in the way while skinning. It’s long enough that you can reach the leash attachment point on your boot and still have enough length left over to remove skis and manipulate climbing skins. Also, long enough to forego a built-in leash attachment point altogether and wrap it around your leg. If your ski comes off, the leash will keep it attached to your leg. If your leg comes off, then all bets are off.

These are the same leashes that are shipped with every brakeless Guide binding. Sold in pairs.

Question from Seth Fineman
So my question is which leash would you recommend that has a mechanism to release given a certain amount of force? Or is this more of a accessory fuse link or something like that? Either way please let me know what you would recommend so that I don’t get strangled in Avalanche.
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Seth,

If you would like a leash that will break away after a certain amount of force, check out the Maruelli Leash Safe Loops. The leash safe loops will snap at around 75lbs of force. However, you will need a leash, as this part connects into the leash chain, and is not a leash on its own.

The leashes that Patrick suggested in the response below are also a great option if you would like to get away from your skis in a slide. Both options require a certain amount of force before they break.

Question from Seth F
Hello, I have the marker alpinist 12 skis and will be using these in avalanche Pronto rain. What would you recommend as a leash to ensure that the ski goes away out of harms way from me in the event of an avalanche?
Answer from Patrick C

These are a great choice, but if you want a longer leash you can check out the B&D Ski Leashes that have a long lead and a break away feature. Hope this helps!

Excellent leashes - just long enough that you can transition without having to remove them, but stay coiled and out of the way. Ordering 2 more to replace some G3 and Dynafit leashes!

Question from Daniel L
Would these work with Marker Alpinist bindings?
Answer from Teddy Young
Hey Daniel, these should work just fine with the Alpinist!

They're long, and they're strong, and they're down to get retention on. Plum claims the break strength is 65 kg (143 lbs), so add a fuse link if you need breakaway. Mine came with clips very similar to the Dynafit guide leashes (aluminum, anodized grey with a laser etched Plum logo) and black cord loops (vs. green). The Skimo product image doesn't match current Plum production. Get 'em if you want to handle your skis without disconnecting your leashes.

Question from Rob K
Will the Plum leash work on K2 Fatty snowblade with non release bindings?
Answer from Jeff
Rob, it will work on anything. Especially since they don't release. Of course, it is a Ski resort requirement.

Question from GlidingJerry
Would these leashes work on Dynafit Superlite 2.0?
Answer from Jeff
Sure will. The green cord is designed to loop through spaces on the binding. There are some cutouts on the side of the Superlight toe that will work well.

Question from Trevor J
Are these long enough to go around your leg/boot? would they work well with the alian RS?
Answer from Nate
Hi Trevor, depending on your leg you might be able to really stretch this to make that happen, but generally speaking I wouldn't say they are long enough to go around your leg/boot. They will work well with the Alien RS though, because Scarpa was thoughtful enough to put a handy D-ring for attaching leashes on that boot.

Question from Patrick Fink
Thoughts on wire vs cord? Need some leashes for some big glaciers in europe. Maybe cord will break away if loaded adequately? I just need to not drop a ski in a crevasse and turn a skiing trip into a walking trip.
Answer from jbo
Hi Patrick, neither is designed to break away, but everything has a breaking point. Look at the Maruelli loops to add a breaking link to your system.
Answer this question:

Question from Mark
Are the Plum leashes good? I have several pairs of leashes, and they mostly go unused.
Answer from jbo
Hey Mark, they are pretty basic cords that attach and detach easily enough. They have no breakaway abilities but you can always add some Maruelli safe loops somewhere in your chain.
