    They do indeed run huge although I haven't tried pushing it that far. I've got 120 on 128 skis and 90 on 94 skis.

    120 on 128=tight fit
    90 on 94=fair bit of room

    Extrapolate from that what you will but someone made an excellent chart which has been reposted a few times about a dozen pages back which gave all the info you need.

    If anyone bends these brake arms, be sure you use a vise to only bend at or outside of the original outer bends. If you accidentally change any of the bends in the middle, the brake won't work right.

    So do I buy 100mm or 110mm for 112mm skis?

    Seems like 100mm?
    I have a 100mm brake on a Corvus Freebird 109mm. Fits perfectly.

    I replaced this season 110mm to 100mm on Atris 108, now it fits perfect.
    Got some crashes catching the slope to wide brakes.

    Not sure about 112mm. I'd go with 110 imho.

    Looks like a 100 to me. I’ve run 100s on skis up to 112 without bending.

    My bad, looked more closely and I think those are 110 brakes. 100 would be a better fit.

    No you were right. It was the 100mm stopper mounted. Tried to fight 90 no chance. Cheers everybody. And to the shop dealing with a hairsplitter

    The brakes are honestly the worst part of these bindings. They hardly retract at all and stick out no matter what. I ground down the plastic on some 110 mm brakes to clear some 124 mm skis. The 120 mm brakes I originally had were humongous!

    yes, on a narrow skintrack they can get in the way. would be nice if the fold in a bit.
    but the way they are mounted is fantastic... i am impressed how easy it is to change them.

    I have the evos. Using with Dalbello Lupo ax 120. My boot toe seems to rub on the little black bumpers at the bottom of the pin arms. Super squeaky and annoying. Anyone experience this? And at full almost 75 degree tilt, the toe contacts the bottom plate under the toe area, ie the trigger for deploying pin arms when stepping in. Any info to alleviate this would be appreciated.

    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    For reference pics There’s an article on wildsnow showing break down. “
    LOST MACHINE OF ARCHIMEDES? TECTON-EVO-VIPEC TEARDOWN”


    any thoughts on improving forward pivot by grinding down the Step-in Toe guide (area at the green sticker) and maybe the toe Bump Release? i would love for the TLT8 boot to work with my Vipec Evo 12 (18/19 MY, improved toe bumper) but in walk mode the boot toe hits the Step-In toe guide at 41* (ha- not even the bumper release) but in ski mode boot hits bumper at 30* (which is a positive since in a ski fall my heels out so the sooner my toe releases the better). This is by far the worst of 5 boots I tested (Procline, TLT8, Hoji Pro, TLT speedfit, Maestrale RS.


    I mocked up the binding and TLT8 to get measurements and play with it to get an idea of what moves and contacts what. In the photo removing the toe bumper by removing the pin, did you see the arched path/slot that pin travels in? (seen easiest by putting lever to stepin mode and freely moving the toe bumper) The arch nearly reaches the green stepin guide. also seen from the top is a single slit for the return spring that wraps the pin. Below the pin on the toe bumpers lowest point are the tabs that clamp the bumper to the toe guide. Thankfully your pic shows me that they seem somewhat insignificant. So does that mean the pin traveling the arch is where the force of the boot pressing on the bumper for release is exerted? Furthermore, in the opposite, the pin hitting the end/top of the arch path could be strong enough to stop the rearward travel of the toe bumper when going from stepin to ski?
    A big concern is removing too much material from the green area of the guide to allow better boot rotation but weaken the stopping potential of the stepin guide at the top where it looks like an overhanging header. The earlier versions (2016 Black TUV) that did not have the bumper or stepin guide looked like they had plenty of room for the TLT8 to rotate but those had other issues I guess.
    Its probably unlikely to put it all back together to test grinding the stepin guide. Any chance you have the other toe binding to take a ‘crack’ at it?
