i just got the volkl karmas and LOOK p10's (all for $355 haha-i work at a ski shop) but ne way, does ne one know if they make wider, replacement brakes since the original ones are not wide enuf for the karmas waist?
well my manager hasn't called LOOK to find out yet since he didnt know either...we actually haven't had thequestion come up before which i found hard to believe...but anyway, get a job at a ski shop-mad cheap gear!
i was just wondering how wide a ski is when you realize that you need wide brakes? im about to order some looks and i was wondering if i need them in wide or not, can someone please tell me...i have ar5s, so im gonna guess and say i dont need wide brakes
would the wide brakes stick way out on a regular (80mmish) pair of skis. I would rather get wide brakes so i can reuse them in some wider skis i get in the future but if it will look rediculous on a set of smaller waised skis, then ill just get reg ones and purchase wide brakes in the future
there are 2 kinds of wide break with many companies
one that fit 90 mm and less and one that fit 110 and less

83mm might be pushing it a bit.. probably be better off going with the wide. Look says the regs fit 80mm and under (i have 1080's that are 80mm and regs fit fine) and for 80mm and up they say to get the wide.
if your ski is within about 5 mm from the brake size you are crazy to get wide brakes. this is because most shops will bend them for you saving money. also the most important reason is that if you get the wide ones they will hang out past the sidewall of you skis giving them the potential to catch on each other when skiing. if you try bending them and it doesnt work then get the wide ones. but you definately dont want your brakes to be rubbing when you are skiing.
