it's happened to tons of people. Not me yet, but you hear about it all the time.
Screw this I'm going skiing
Ya, I did it on a zero spin last season. It's a pain, but if your skis are the right age you just have to wait a day to get new ones shipped in.
Without skiing we are just monkeys with car keys.
yeah it hasn't happened to me but i've seen it three or 4 times
most of the time thier still ski-able

some dude jumped on mine and broke my 140 brakes the other day
I think it has to do with the brakes being to small for the skis we ride. The regular breaks are too small and the wide breaks are way to wide for the average park ski. I think ski companies should make three sizes of breaks and have them come FREE with the brakes.
i have regular width and regular brakes but my brakes broke off cause i hit some rock switch and they exploded

Mine haven't broken yet.. they just stick out past my edges. so i usually end up bending them at thew top of the hill.
salomon makes 5 widths of brakes last i checked... and you can buy bindings that come with any of the available sizes. you just have to buy the right pair. this however has absolutely nothing to do with why jibbers break brakes.
anyone who lands switch with any regularity will probally break a brake eventually. if you fall, the brake just catches and torques off/bends/snaps. i break one every couple of days in the park.
I broke another brake yesterday on brand new p12 jib's, im getting really tired of this shit.
Days ski'd :21 Brakes broken:6 Skis Broken: 1 Binding's Broken : 1

yeah..somebody's got to think of something different to fix this problem. well then why ?
if a customer has to keep paying for replacements its a new marketing approach
does look sell wide breaks just by themselves or do you need to get the p12 wide brake bindings
my brakes got fucked up last night on my markers...usually when they're wobbly they're just gonna keep getting worse. theres usually a screw loose that needs to be tightened to fix the problem

i have the p12 jib and the brakes dont fit on my fujis, so i just bent them. but the guy who mounted them for me said that it would be better if i got the wide brakes from look. any advice?
yeah it just happened to me a week ago
my friend did it on a 5 first time on his pe's with marker bindings. told him not to get them. these are his first twins first jump he hits lands but the brakes were lower then the skis caught the brakes and ripped the brake off. clip your boot into your bindings and make sure the brakes are a good deal above the ski then they wont brake so much.
sometimes I can, like, read peoples minds... its like I have Espn or something...

I didn't know companies made that many different sizes...but who wants to buy salomon anyways!
My experience with breaking breaks happend because the bakes would not come up to the side of the binding and would sometimes hang on the ground a little, and when I would land swith, they would catch and just break off.
But my wide breaks on my skis right now have been fine.
Ok, so I have this idea about the 'switch landing break busting' problem. Some company shound make a binding with a brake system geared toward the newschool market. I'm thinking they should make a brake that is sping-loaded both ways: When the binding was released the brake would come down, and could pivot both toward the front and the back of the ski. That way, If you landed switch and your brake got jammed into some hard snow or something, it would just pivot up toward the front of the ski until your weight was off of it. My idea would completely eliminate this problem forever! Anyone agree?
i tried makign a model for that kind of brake ocne and it didn't work too well

I broke 2 brakes last night by landing switch and my skis ejecting for no good reason. I heard about these deadbolts on another forum that are supposed to solve the problem. I don't know anything about them or even what they are. I can't find the forum again to ask people. Anyone have any info on them?
