If you're only using your ski breaks to hold skis together while carrying and transporting them, you know they have a tendency to scissor. That motion scrapes the skis across each other, dulling edges and damaging bases. No bueno. Ski Straps are a quick and easy fix. Molded EVA pads hold bases apart to avoid scraping and rusting, and a high-quality hook-and-loop closure locks the straps securely in place. You put some serious cash into those sticks. This buy is a no-brainer.
