TRVP_ANGELhey mason, great question. When pros receive their bindings out of the box, they usually get their shop tech to mount the bindings and during that process they ask the tech to snap off the brakes for them.
That is because Brakes become obsolete once you set your din to 14 since the skis will never actually self eject. Therefore, they are just extra weight on the ski itself. pros need skis to be as light as possible while they are attempting spins of the distant future such as 1980 and 2160.
hopw that helps

No straight landings
"You see that kid land a 2160? Yeah what a fucking jerry. I bet he can't land a 2020."
OregonDeadIf you are serious OP ... Not all binding set ups require brakes. For touring to save weight or for terrain when you can't afford to lose a ski it makes sense to use a leash instead.
