Brakes and leashes

You broke your binding's brake and you’re looking for replacement? No worries, we got your back.

On a ski, the brake is pretty much the last thing you care about. And yet, the brake is highly needed as it prevents from losing your ski when the bindings release. Without brakes, the ski would simply glide down the slope, with or without you, and fall in a crevasse or worse, hurt somebody else. Brakes come with bindings when you buy them, but they happen to break. On Glisshop.co.uk we have a large selection of spare brakes available to help you maintain your skis in perfect condition year after year.

Buyer’s guide for ski brakes and leashes for touring skis

Without these accessories, every fall would turn into a long hike until you retrieve your skis. It is the brake that stops the ski from gliding downhill and generally skis stay where you fell or just a few meters down. There are also leashes available, making sure your skis stay attached to you, even if the binding releases. They are really convenient as you don’t even have to walk.

What are the pros and cons of ski brakes?

Leash fans will tell you brakes are way too heavy compared to a simple strap. Well, they are right. A ski brake weighs approximately 100g when a leash displays only a few gramms on the scale. Freetourers looking for high performance will naturally go for the lightest solution to save efforts.

However, if you are fit and strong and you only do a couple of tours a year, the brake, even if heavier, is still more convenient than the leash. If the binding releases, the ski stops automatically. When you’re having a break, no need to dig in the snow and make sure the ski can’t move as you would with a leash, it will stay where it is thanks to the brake. Same if you’re falling, the ski won’t leave. It is the ideal solution for all tourers who begin in the sport and want something easy and convenient. Also, with brakes, you kill the risk of catching a branch or any other obstacle like you would with a leash.

How to choose your ski brake?

The ski brake is a device that’s pretty basic with a simple function, stop the ski. It’s a lever system with two arms that stick into the snow when the binding is released and stop the ski from sliding away. Put the boot back into the binding and the two arms rise above the snow and stay out of the way. With skis becoming wider and wider, it is important to choose the correct brake that matches you ski sidecuts.

Whether you want to replace your brakes or change them for a wider model cause you bought wider skis, you will find the brakes you need on glisshop.co.uk. Or if you bought a new set of touring skis that came with a leash and you decide you want to go back on brakes, you can. There will always be a model that fits your skis.
