Hey sorry if this has been posted a lot, but I came down off a jump and my brake snapped. Ill try and include a picture. I have Look SPX 12 bindings. My main question is does any brake fit my bindings? Im gonna go to my local shop tomorrow.

Dash69your ski shop will definitely know. If you bring the ski in, most shops will fix you up for pretty cheap. I can't imagine it would cost more than 15$. probably 10$
CB4TSBeasy fix. plus a good thing to know about that brake is it's the same one on the Rossignol Axial binding. Did it happen landing backwards?
Dunderfliplol I broke 3 brakes on the same bindings doing the same thing. the actual piece will be more expensive than the repair but you should be able to buy a pair of brakes. upgrade your bindings next season, I have yet to break brakes on attack 13s or pivot 14s.
HarleyL7Lol Im just starting to get intro tricks and it breaks on me. These are actually my first pair of skis, I just moved out to alaska in October 2017. I will look into upgrading next season.
HarleyL7Yeah haha I was going for my first 180 over a decent size jump and didnt realize there was a snowboarder who had gone a good 2mintues before me, just sitting on the other side after he fell. Had to bail out to avoid crashing into him. It was pretty foggy last night where I am in Alaska.
ZypherGood on ya for learning new stuff man! As for the brakes, just take them to the shop and see what they can do. Make sure to ask if they have anything used before going for the brand new ones. With used shit, you can usually haggle a little and get them for around 15 bucks. New brakes are expensive though haha.
CB4TSBBrakes commonly brake when lading backwards especially if the DIN is low. That particular binding I see it a lot more than others. When you land backwards the heel will flex down causing the brake to dig into the snow and snap. Increasing your DIN will help prevent that but don't set it to anything outside your limit. Have a good rest of the season
HarleyL7Thanks for the help! I just got back from the shop and they had a box full of brakes, and sold me one for 10 bucks. Had to go a size up until they order more 100mm brakes. This size seems to look better and doesnt come in contact with my skis. Im riding the Faction CT 2.0 at 102mm waist. You think I should stay at 100mm brakes or go up a little?
ZypherPersonally I’d stay with 100mm brakes but it’s up to you. The closer the brake size to the ski the better. I ride 95mm brakes on most of my ~100-110mm underfoot skis because I usually keep my feet closer togeather and don’t want my brakes to hook. That being said, a wider brake can also drag in the snow when you are carving which could cause you to get tripped up a bit.
