Tyrolia attack 13 brakes?
just wondering if the attack 13 or 16 had any problems with the brakes since they are drilled into the ski itself. what would happen if you were to eject switch and the brake blows out, any damage to the ski?and how easily can you replace them? any feedback appreciated. and put any links to threads that would be helpful for some k+
I just bought them and haven't mounted them yet but by looking at them in hand it looks like if the brake were to come off it would have to rip 2 medium sized screws out of the ski
From what I've heard Tyrolia brakes are really strong, better than markers.
It's an iffy design for sure, but ive never heard of it happening and I had tyrolias and it never happened to me.
A great binding, especially for the money!
I felt the same way when first considering peak bindings (same heel). I went for them and have never had any problems with any of the pairs that I own. I've never seen a brake stand up to more than these have, I've never replaced one and would easily go through a pair a season on my older look bindings. I wouldn't be worried about pull outs too much as I've never heard of any (not to say that it isn't impossible). It seems like if anything the plastic would give before the screws ripped out. If you need to replace them just bring them to a shop and they will (usually) do the swap for free if you buy the brakes off them. If you plan on doing it yourself you might strip the hole putting the screw back in which isn't a good thing.
I released on a bad switch landing and one brake got bent and the other completely snapped. I took the screw out and replaced the brakes and haven't really had any problems since.
