The Curated Take

I'll start by pointing out that I own several bindings in the Look Pivot/Rossignol FKS family, and for my demands they are unmatched. The pivot 14s boast the same lightweight, minimal construction as the 12 din model, which for me is great. I set my dins around 7-8, and the only times I release I definitely needed to. They are noticeably closer to the ski than other binding models, which really feels awesome for a variety of reasons, but they really help feel out a jump and really emphasize the surf factor in the pow. What makes this style of binding so great on the release, the turntable heel, could also be a headache for some skiers. I personally did not have much issue with taking the extra moment each time to turn the binding back to where it should be, however I am clicking in maybe 4 times on a full day at the mountain, and closer to just once on the average ski day. Patrollers, instructors, and others taking their skis off and on on-the-fly, should be aware of this downside. I have had these bindings for years, over several pairs of skis, generally putting them through the wringer, with no durability issues, however I put 4 stars because the 15 and 18 din models come with a solid metal toe piece.

Pros
  • Puts the ski boot closer to the ski for excellent power transfer.
  • High elasticity means releasing only when needed, and not when stomping a landing.
  • Turntable heel provides lateral release for truly unmatched injury prevention.
Cons
  • One of the more difficult alpine bindings to step into.
  • The heel piece freely rotates, and becomes mis-aligned during carry or crash. This must be re aligned to the ski each time stepping in.
  • The Pivot 14 doesn't boast the solid metal front and the same durability as the 15 and 18 din models.

Product details

The Look Pivot 14 GW Ski Binding offers the same industry-leading elastic travel as the higher-end Pivot models, in a more affordable and accessible package. They still have the signature rotating heel piece which lets the ski boot return to the binding without pre-releasing after hard landings, but the toe piece is lighter and the DIN release value range starts lower for recreational skiing.

Key Features:

  • Turntable Heel – The turntable heel rotates directly under the tibia, delivering elite shock absorption and reduced unwanted pre-release.
  • Short Mounting Zone – The short mounting zone lets the ski flex more naturally compared to other bindings.
  • Boot Sole Compatibility – Compatible with both traditional Alpine (ISO 5355) and GripWalk (ISO 23223 standard) boot soles.
  • DIN Range – 5-14

Additional features
Smaller Mounting Zone – The shortest mounting zone of any alpine binding available provides less swing weight, improved response, and a deeper, rounder, more consistent ski flex. 7 Points of Contact – More points-of-contact with the boot results in increased lateral energy transmission, drives more power to the edge of the ski and provides superior control, response, and snow feel.

The Look Pivot 14's are good for a wide range of skiers, and would work with almost anyone. They have tons of heel elasticity to prevent injuries, and are crazy durable. Pivots are basically a solid hunk of binding, and it takes a lot to mess them up. Lighter weight skiers would be better off going with the Pivot 12, and skiers looking for even more durability and DIN play can check out the fully metal Pivot 15/18.

Pros
  • Super durable binding
  • Lots of heel elasticity
  • Precise feel
Cons
  • Difficulty of popping into
