I just joined and have a specific question. I have searched the forums, found little about it and am realizing my question might involve EpicSki sacrilege, but I will ask it anyway. First a little background.
I broke my Geze G78 bindings yesterday at Waterville Valley. The plastic sheared off. They are un repairable. This is the second time a plastic binding has structurally failed under me. As I think over my options, I have a thought…
In the loft in my barn are my 1972 K2 Elites with Look Nevada (N17) bindings. I now think they were the best bindings I have ever had.
I remember around 1990 I stopped using them because the ski areas disapproved of run-away straps, also chunks of the tops of my Elites were also falling off and I decided I liked the ski brakes concept.
Is there any way to use ski brakes with these bindings? Will my current 2000 or so Solomon boots fit them (they seem to fit fine)?
My sacrilegious thought is to put the Looks on my 1990-ish VAS 5 Rossignols. My problem is that I would need to find an after market ski brake I can use. There doesn’t seem to be enough room for a ski brake because with the Looks, the boots are right on the surface of the ski.
Has anyone had any experience with a problem like this?
