Really cool friction-free ski brake from Ski Trab. The Italians are always on the leading edge of ski technology and Trab in-particular has both speed and safety in mind. Compatible with the Gara Titan bindings, the brakes are mounted directly underneath the heel piece, which results in a secure connection. A free-spinning, free-sliding ball eliminates friction so as to not change release values. It also avoids negative ramp angles when skinning in flat-on-ski mode. The ball is loaded on a symmetric spring to fully enable the elasticity of the Titan Release binding. A clever locking mechanism keeps the brakes retracted when skinning. The whole mechanism sits flat on the ski or can ride atop the Flex 30 adjustment plate. The Trab Titan brakes are a marvel of passionate engineering. Plus, at a mere 62g per side, you will hardly even notice they are there.
