one side of the brake or both "prongs" of the brake?
if its both prongs, the definite answer would be yes.
if its only one prong, you would get some saying yes, but you would probably be fine as your careful, however if it does come off and doesn't catch, the ski will be gone and its out of your control what happens next, seem skis hit jumps in the park, pretty dangerous
You shouldn't really ski without a brake if you eject your ski is going to be coming down the run with some speed and not many people will be looking out for it. If your heel piece is still fine you can get a replacement brake put in for pretty cheep
Yeah, my brakes broke twice this season so far. The second time I continued to ski the rest of the day, but I really didn't go in the park - I just took it easy on some simple runs. I have seen a rogue ski flying down the hill and they go fast. You don't want that to hit someone. You can ski with it though.
I've been skiing with no brakes for a season now and I decided how stupid I was to put other people in danger so I took my shoelace and basically tied my binding to my boot, kind of like a powder strap. It's not ideal but it's economica.
Ive had broken brakes lots. you can ski without them fine, but if you get a runaway ski you better be good at skiing on one foot so you can catch up to it. I tried using a shoelace aswell but that snapped the first time i fell. Id say get a replacement at any ski shop all you need is a screwdriver to change them.
I broke a brake the other day and went in to a ski shop at the base of my mountain and they fixed it and gave me a new brake for free, it was awesome. See if a local shop can hook you up
When a husband and a wife love each other very much, they hug eachother real close. When Jesus sees them hug like this, he smiles. That night when the mommy and daddy are sleeping, Jesus flies down to earth, into their house through the chimney and into their bedroom. Then he takes off the mommy's underwear and pees in her butt. 9 months later, the mommy poops out a baby. And that's the miracle of life. - JohnLemieuxPHOTO
Mine snapped in half at the heal piece landing a jump last Sunday, sending my ski 150 yards down the hill smashing into a guy standing in the trail. He was ok, but pissed. He was like "YOUR GONNA KILL SOMEONE SKIING WITHOUT A BRAKE!" Had to explain that it snapped on the last jump.
PX12 brakes fucking suck... had so many problems with them.
The early bird may get the worm, but the 2nd mouse gets the cheese.
brakes just don't seem to have kept up with skiing, like my brakes break/bend about 10% time i bail landing switch, marker griffons, just seems like freeskiing desperately needs someone to find an decent alternative system
