Binding Brake Size. Will brake 85mm fit 87mm waist.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 I am interested in buying skis that have an 87mm waist, but I have a pair of Marker Free 10 white and black 2013, that are 85mm. Do you think these bindings will fit the waist of these skis, or if not could i change the brake? The skis that i want to buy are elan puzzle ne 2013.

People bend brakes all the time.  Are you mounting them yourself? If not, talk to the shop tech that you will take them to.  I'd bend them and make them fit if it were me.

No I will ask a shop to mount them for me. Do you think they could bend them for me?

Some will, some won't.  If you purchase the gear from them they will make sure it is compatible.  If you walk in with gear you purchased elsewhere and it is not technically correct they might not.  The only way to be sure is to speak with them and ask them.

They will. I'd be more concerned about an adult male skiing a marker free 10 binding.

Last pair of brakes I bent were, 75 to fit 115 waist.
85-87 is nothing, you could easily tweak them yourself.

Good chance they won't need bending at all.  2mm is less than a tenth of an inch and most brakes have much more clearance than that.
