brakes in the bc

i got an AT setup this year and i'm wondering about getting the 100mm freeride brakes to fit my skis. so i'm thinking, am i really depending on these brakes to stop my skis when i could be screwed if they don't? considering leashes instead. pretty sure the brakes that came with the bindings won't bend enough for 98mm waist skis. thoughts? thanks. d

Go for the brakes. Leash's are a hassle when they get wet,frozen and packed with snow, which is pretty much all the time.

Man-If your traveling in avi terrain you don't want leash's (AT or Tele). If you get caught in a slide, at least with a releasable binder you can get your ski off your feet. With leash's it is like having an anchor strapped to your body. You can always try to bend the brakes. Good luck.
