Look Pivot 12 AW
The award-winning Look Pivot ski binding is the most trusted and reliable alpine binding in skiing. The Pivot 12 is an intermediate-advanced level high-performance freeride binding. The reinforced Full Action toepiece combined with the classic Pivot "turntable" heel delivers maximum power transmission, shock absorption and the longest elastic travel on the market to provide more reliable retention and consistent release. The Pivot 12 is the best ski binding for aggressive all-mountain, freeride, and freestyle skiing. The new AW version is now compatible with WTR, Gripwalk and standard alpine sole boots.
Look bindings enable your boot to sit closer to the snow & allow the ski to flex more naturally under foot than any other binding. You get the best snow sensitivity, precision & control and a more natural flexing ski for optimal performance and feel. Backed by durability that's second to none, there's a reason the best pros in the world count on Look.
The AW version of the binding is simply a feature that enables the height of the surface that the toe of your boot sits on to be lowered or raised. This feature does not effect performance, it is purely to enable the binding to accept "Walk To Ride" (WTR) boots, "Gripwalk" boots OR standard boots.
Walk to ride and Gripwalk boots have a subtly angled toe and heel so that they are easier to walk in. If you don’t own a WTR or Gripwalk boot and don’t plan on owning a pair anytime soon there is no need to worry! The Pivot AW is still a fantastic binding that will work perfectly with the standard alpine boot design.
Choosing your brake size is based on your ski width. The brake should be as close to the ski waist width as possible and no more than 10mm wider or 5mm narrower. For example a 100mm brake fits 90-105mm waist width skis.
Choosing the right binding model is dependent on your weight which determines which maximum DIN # you need. If you are unsure what the right DIN is for you please shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call!
