The Pure 8, Pure 10 and Core 12 brakes can be switched quite easily. It only takes about 5 minutes, at least with a little practice.

 Hagan Ski brakes

(This image is of the brake for the Ultra World Cup race binding.)

Here is a small trick/tip to make it much easier:

Use the brake retracting/locking mechanism to hold everything in place (just like you were putting the brakes into touring mode), then install the screws. The lock will hold everything in place before even a single screw is installed.

Coming in 2020, the Core 12 Pro will have the same heel mounted brakes – and a new available Freeride Spacer.

Can you remove the brakes on the Pure 8/10 and Core 12 Pro and ski without them?

Yes. This doesn't impact uphill or downhill performance, other than you could have a runaway ski. You will lighten each binding by 47 grams.

Ski touring gear for kids

I get asked a lot: What gear do you recommend for kids? Especially this year as it looks like there will be high demand for junior alpine ski touring gear as people want to get away from the resorts. Especially if they are closed!!

Here is my answer - 

We now have the Pure 8 Junior binding. The Pure 8 Junior is very light. (About a tenth the weight of the Z02 Junior, and less than half the weight of the somewhat comparable Dynafit Rotation.) So a very good option -
