The Look Pivot 12 GW has long been recognized as one of the safest bindings on the market. With more elastic travel than any other offering, you’ll cut down on unwanted pre-release while simultaneously increasing release consistency. The Full Action Toe has more release directions than other bindings. Instead of a lateral only release, there’s also a vertical release for added protection. The Turntable design in the heel helps to push the consistency of the release even further, guiding the boot smoothly out of the binding. For everyday all mountain skiers that want to put safety first, or the park skier sending it big, this is the binding for you!
Norm: Gripwalk / Alpine
Safety: TUV Certified
Adjustment Range: 20mm
Stack Height: 18mm
Toe Elasticity: 45mm
Heel Elasticity: 28mm
Long Elastic Travel: Longer elastic travel ensures more reliable retention to keep you in when you need. LOOK bindings offer the most elastic travel (lateral and vertical) and the fastest re-centering prior to release, ensuring superior shock absorption to reduce unwanted pre-release.
Short Mounting Zone: The shortened mounting zone provides less swing weight, improved response, and a deeper, rounder, more consistent ski flex.
Rolling Control: LOOK binding components are designed to deliver industry-leading roll coupling strength (boot-to-binding interface). This ensures minimal roll before the boot engages the binding for the most efficient power transmission in skiing.
Gripwalk: GRIPWALK compatible bindings ensure perfect compatibility with two boot sole standards: – Traditional Alpine soles (ISO 5355) – GRIPWALK soles (future ISO 23223 standard)
Full Action Toe Piece: Featuring 45mm of elastic travel and 180° multi-directional release, the FULL ACTION toe piece delivers best-in-class retention and release and increased coupling strength (boot-to-binding interface) for maximum power transmission.
Multi Directional Release: LOOK is the only binding brand to develop a true mechanical upward release that functions independently from the heel for the most effective 180° MULTI DIRECTIONAL RELEASE in the instance of a fall.

Useful guidelines to assist you when buying your gear.
Often overlooked, ski bindings are easily one of the most important pieces in your ski setup. From safety to performance, the right binding can make a huge difference.
There are a few different types of bindings that all serve separate purposes. It is important to take into consideration where you spend the most time on the mountain and how aggressively you will be skiing.
Downhill / Alpine
Alpine bindings constitute the largest majority of the market. Since these bindings are primarily focused on the retention/release in regards to the ski boot, they have the highest amounts of elasticity which guarantees the best release possible. When you’re looking at alpine bindings, it may be hard to tell what the difference is and why you would splash out a bit more for one versus the next. Here’s a few of the major differences:
Sole norm compatibility – a very important thing to keep in mind when buying a binding. Most recent alpine bindings can take a variety of sole norms including Alpine, AT, WTR, and Gripwalk. However, some can only take one or two of these. Check with us if you’re unsure on what your boot is compatible with.
When choosing an touring binding the first thing to think about is what your ratio of touring to resort skiing will be. While a lightweight pin binding will be great for a long tour, it won’t always hold up to the rigors of constant laps at the resort. Likewise a frame binding will provide a very solid platform to ski on and a great reliable release, but it will be a lot of extra work on day long and multi-day tours. Finding the balance is key.
Every ski binding comes with a different range of DIN settings. Often times you might be looking at two bindings that are identical besides different DIN ranges. What do you choose? When selecting a binding it is important to make sure the range provided will suit the DIN setting that you require. It is also important to make sure you are well within the range rather than sitting right at the minimum or maximum settings. We can help you out with figuring out where you fall in this range if you are unsure.
Make sure that any adjustments to ski bindings (even slight) are done by a certified ski technician. Ski bindings are your main safety equipment on your setup and even the smallest incorrect adjustment can result in a preventable injury.
Choosing the right width brake of your binding ensures that the brakes won’t overhang, drag, or get caught. You’ll want to choose the brake that is equal to or slightly wider than the ski itself. If you’re unsure about what size you’ll need give us a shout!
There are five main types of bindings which can safely take different types of ski boot soles. Below is a chart of the binding types vs the sole types and what is and isn’t compatible.
