Holy fuck, why dont companies step up an make a brake that works for when you fall switch? iknow ive broken mybindings 3 times this way and i broke my friends once too and it makes for unpleasent chases down the hill often followed by searches in the woods for your ski
cause, it would take a whole over haul of the binding and a whole redesign of break mechanism to so so... and that costs money.
DO you think that ski companies want to spend money?
I sure dont. Invent your own, then sell it to salomon, and make your self supreeeeeeee rich!
and the problems with life will melt away with that first carve you lay down on some shitty patch of groomed snow on opening day- Mr. Bishop-- truest words ever spoken, i am waiting patiently for that day
the deadbolts this year were sposed to try and solve the problem.
anyone out there break a brake on a deadbolt.
Heloo, my name is Shane Mckonkey. I was born in Vancouver Canada, thats aboot three hours north of, ah, seattle.
Right now were here in Bella Coola Canada, and ah, weve been shut in by the weather for like three weeks eh. We havn't shot fuck all. Ooh, Soory.
We've just been sittng around, eating pasta, and spending loonies and toonies on Kokanee and peelers.
But, as soon as this weather clears, im gunna pull on my toque, eat some canadian bacon, and ah, im keen to giver.
if you eject going swich the snowbreak comes down and catches the snow and rips the break the wrong way causing it to snap, i broke both in one fall before because of this. Must be nice to have a shop that will do it for free, none in my town had the breaks and they said it would cost 60 to order new ones and put them on
Trust me shithead my bindings dins are cranked and i rarely crash. if one of my skis comes off switch then brakes are done. maybe if you hit something more than fifteen feet you would understand this problem.
I just broke two brakes in one day, pretty shitty for paying almost $25 for each of them. I'm gonna crank my dins down and see if that solves the problem. I didnt even fall either time it happened, my ski just popped off without notice Where do you find these deadbolts? are they brakes or are they bindings?
ive seen it happen, but its personally never happened to me. I've crashed pretty damn hard switch off of some pretty big jumps, and nothing yet. Usually my ski hooks backwards and just spins around forward
