The problem is that Salomon charges dealers close to $30 for the brake so it is hard for dealers to make any money when they do get the brake as they have to pay for the shipping of the brakes to them and the price of shipping them back out. Al's Ski Barn www.untracked.com includes the correct brake when you buy skis and that also goes for skis such as the EP Pro's, Hell Bents, ARG's and Fatypus. We have designed our own brake for Salomon and Marker (Duke, Jester, Griffon, Baron) that will fit skis up to 140mm in the waist so we can mount wider skis and have the proper brake. They also mount all skis free of charge, and I saw the new jig to mount skis over 130mm so the Tech's do not have to make a paper jig for skis over 125mm.

You wanna know whats even worse!
I just bought Marker Griffons and i was thinking about getting the 130 brake,and i went to the shop i bought the bindings from and i asked how much the 130 brake would cost and they said it would be $100!!! A hundred dollars just for two brakes. So i ended up just getting the 110's and bending them,works out fine so far.
You think im lying? Straight up i asked them how much they would be and they said a hundred bucks cause they had to be ordered in straight from marker and they would be that much.No joke what so ever. If they were 40 bucks i would have bought them,but seeing as they told me they were 100 thats why i have bent 110's.
