Head PowerRail owners, is yours broken here?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I noticed this today, really weird, no idea how or when it happened. The plastic covers on the rail with all the numbers printed on are broken at the tail end on both skis, in exactly the same manner. Seems it was pushed out from inside, but the skis were very well taken care of and never over flexed such as bridging two moguls. The only thing I can remember is two days ago the snow was excellent and I pulled some high angle carving turns, but that doesn't really bend the ski much all things considered.

The skis in question is 2012-13 model, my other older model also have PR11, but not broken.

The 2nd ski was originally same as the 1st ski, with the plastic still partially hanging on, but I broke it off.

I'd be willing to bet that it's caused by the ski flexing up and breaking off the plastic. Any change in the function of the binding or plate? If not, ski and don't worry about it.

It's a cosmetic cover and serves no functional purpose, so it doesn't matter. Just that it's strange and I can't imagine when would the ski ever flexing up that much (i.e. more camber), I mean I'd imagine whoever design the parts would allow enough play to not break under most situations.
