Wide brakes. How wide is too wide?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I came into a pair of 2013 Dynafit TLT Radical FT's with 130mm brakes. I would have preferred the 110mm brakes, but couldn't pass up the deal I got on the 130mm's. I am planning on mounting them to a new pair of the 2010 BD Kilowatts, 185's. The waist is 95mm for this ski which would mean the brakes would protrude 17.5mm over each ski edge. Would this be too wide for these skis? If so, (not having the bindings on hand currently) are the brakes of the 2013 Dynafit TLT Radical FT's changeable?

You may drag the brakes in snow, causing you to "brake out" and unable to achieve a high edge angle...

I got one of my too-wide brakes stuck in my pants cuff as I was heading toward the woods yesterday. Awkward.... good thing I practiced all those white pass turns.
