* These estimates are provided for buying bindings. Final DIN settings must be calculated by a certified ski binding technician.
The waist of the ski binding brake coincides with the waist (narrowest width) of the skis. At minimum, brakes are made to be bent out and can be up to 8mm narrower than the skis. At maximum, brakes can be 12mm wider than the skis. For instance, skis that have a 100mm waist need a 92-112mm brake.
Ski bindings are essential to sliding on snow, whether you’re an alpine skier or a backcountry skier or both. Downhill ski bindings should be strong and safe.
