The Look Pivot 12 GW features all the tech of the Pivot 18 series, which is a favorite among freeride and freestyle skiers. The only difference is a reduction in the maximum DIN setting. This binding is ideal for an introductory park setup, or for the knee-conscious skier. The rotational heel piece helps prevent knee injuries and is the claim to fame for this binding. With lots of elasticity in the toe and heel, the chance of pre-releases is reduced.
- Maximum DIN of 12 – With a DIN range of 4 to 12, the pressure may not be able to be cranked down hard, but they can handle just about anything for beginner to intermediate park skiers. They perform well for the conventional alpine skier at all skill levels.
- Turntable Heel – The turntable heel pivots directly under the heel and tibia, ensuring a safer and more natural release from the skis.
- High Elasticity – Both the toe and heel pieces of this binding have huge elasticity, making it much less likely to release from the skis at unwanted times like hard turns or recoverable landings.
- GripWalk Compatible – This binding is compatible with Alpine DIN (ISO 5355) and Gripwalk Soles (ISO 23223).

These can be a great option for a park rider because they have higher elasticity which makes it less likely for the skier to pop out if the landing is a little off but recovery is possible. These are a really solid binding to invest in given, one, they are compatible with ISO 5355 Alpine and GripWalk soles (lots of boots), the turntable heel is super for minimizing the risk of lower leg and knee injuries from falls. Another great feature of these bindings is its 7 Points of Contact which creates better transmission of lateral energy from edge-to-edge, more control, responsiveness and feel.
The added elasticity allows for an extra split second before the binding releases — that means you don't have to crank your DIN up to avoid the dreaded "pre-release." In years of skiing on this binding, I never pre-released, and I have always released when I needed to (including once when the release resulted in a lost ski, but a non-release would have likely resulted in a serious injury).
These are the cream of the crop. It has a unique design where the heel piece rotates which helps ensure a smooth release when your ski needs to pop off! These things save knees! They tend to be a little heavier and are very durable.
Long-lasting, industry-proven binding in strength, safety, and durability. The heal piece also swivels to aid in reducing torsional forces to the knees and legs in times of release/falls. Compatible with both alpine and gripwalk soles.
A full action toe piece and unique "turntable" heel design, these bindings are meant to be worked! Confidence and stability with ultimate ski-to-boot control, you'll be happy you brought these along for the ride.
