broken z12 brake
The 2012 Z12 has a serious design flaw in the brake. Second day with them I was taking a warmup run on a groomer. Heel twisted out (was set too low) and it blew the hinge rivet out of the proxmal side of the brake. Twisted the brake all to hell, brake didn't deploy, ski got away. Next day, after wiring it together with two cotter pins, I was in the backcountry and my guide told me he'd done exactly the same thing the first day he'd ridden his. BC is getting the brake replaced, but having this happen on a lengthy tour would really suck. Dynafit needs to redesign the new brakes.
