Stretching brakes for fat skis
Is it possible to stretch normal width brakes to fit fat skis without destroying your bindings?
at your own risk bro.
step on one end and put a towel around the other and pull up with both hands.
don't try to go bigger than 95mm tho
If youre good you can do it. One of the head guys in my shop did an amazing job with my brakes.They were race stock look brakes(so tiny) and he bent each side of the brake twice so they fit like normal brakes..
i screwed mine all up by trying it...fat brakes cost 25 for looks or reactors...i would just do that
you are one giant piece of internet suck -...focus....
message mntlion on tetongravity.com/forums. he can do em cheap
i rock the pow like none other
the guy at the vail shop did a decent job on mine.

Have an uncontrolable urge to jumsp/spin off things because you cant ski?? join the cult. msg me!
Also turns out im a leader of the family guy cult. msg me!
just vice them, and bend them with a pipe. Its pretty easy and they dont break very often if your careful about it. You can bend most stock brakes out to atleast 105, and some out to 130ish if you don't care too much about having it hang down a long way, but still enough to function
brakes are for pussies.

I intend to live forever, so far so good
If you were touched by an angel call the police.
prob with going over 100 is they don't fold in all the way and you could get fucked landing switch and rip them off
Well i have a pair of fks's bent to about 120 and they havent have a single problem or function the slightest bit different than they would on a race ski. And i know they could be bent wider because i have done so, and they have worked properly.
don't they stick way the hell out when your in your bndgs?
No, if you bend them right you can get them to come back over the top of your ski while your stepped in.
