    for high-angle carving, you may drag them a little.

    off-piste--no issue.

    i had 115 brakes on 105mm skis and never had a problem.

    What year are the bindings? I have a set of pivot 14 115's on 112 skis and I swear they fit wider than 2 year newer (2020) pivot 18's on 108's.

    They're too wide. All the people telling you that they're fine have never had the pleasure[terror] of hooking their brake arms together while skiing. Been there, done that, it will sure get your attention when it happens.

    I won't use a brake that is wider than the ski I put them on. 95mm Pivot brakes will clear a 110mm ski without bending them, I had them mounted on Praxis MVP's for years, then a pair of Cochises(108mm), never had to bend them. I have 95mm brake P15's on my Stance 102's now, and once again, they clear the ski easily.

    If anyone can help me track down some of the 80 or 85mm brakes/heels for Look Pivots, I would be appreciative. I have some groomer zoomers I want to put Pivots on, but the 95mm brake is too wide for me to be comfortable with.
    I remember a bottomless freedom...

    glademaster knows. It's not bad until it is and then it can get real bad real quick. I'd rather ski brakeless than ski on brakes that are too wide. hooking a brake at 25-60 mph hurts and I have a plate on my collar bone as a reminder of that mistake.
