    How much room can I bend a fks 18 din binding

    I have these bindings, 95 mm brakes. I bought a pair of mantra , 103 under foot. You think I can make them fit by bending them, or do I need to swap them out for the 105?

    Should be fine with no bending. We put 95mm brakes on 102mm wide skis as a standard practice.
    Seriously, this canít turn into yet another ON3P thread....

    Doesnít it go 95/115/130?
    Iíd go w 95 vs 115. They will fit. You are taking ~4mm per arm.

    No problem. I believe the ski is 102mm wide, and as mentioned above way better than the 115mm alternative.

    you can bend FKS brakes however the hell you want. I legit think you can use the 95 brake on a 115mm ski and the 115 brake on a 95mm ski (in this case, you bend the brake up and in). ive done both for a season, never noticed anything odd. They're idiot proof because theyre just metal. brakes have the have the simplest job -- (try to) stop the ski

    Yeah Iíve done the take the entire heal piece apart and bent them in a vice. I was trying to avoid that.
    I know that they snap under heavy pressure.
