weastcoastThis is one of the main reasons why I buy Look Pivots. You can’t really break the brakes off because they’re built into the binding.
Bullshit they don't break. Within 2 weeks of riding the shitty cheap alloy brake plates on both my fks 14s had cracked and a day later both had fallen off. This means the brake can't fully retract when I clip in and thus there is brake drag and a risk of the two wonky inside edge brakes locking together midair or mid carve. To make it worse no one seems to sell a replacement in my country and you have to remove the entire cunty heelpeice to replace the brake if you can find one. Even the rossignol rep was no help.
Keep in mind I only weigh 75ish kg and although I ride them every day on hard pack they are expensive bindings and are supposed to be durable.
I'd take replaceable component brakes like on markers any day of the week over these orange pieces of fucking garbage that have turned my nice kartels into sketchy bullshit. Fuck fks and fuck shitty metal. Fuck. Surely someone else has encountered this problem?
