NeverGroomed notes:

When your heli-ski guide leads you across an icy, exposed snowfield perched over a 3,000-foot cliff in the Chilean Andes, a vice-like DIN above 12 may actually be advisable. But if you won’t be venturing into extreme no-fall zones this winter, a high-DIN binding probably adds nothing more than cost and weight to your setup.

Enter the Look Pivot 12 Dual WTR Binding.

This is the lightest and most nimble member of Look’s legendary Pivot series, yet it still retains the laundry list of safety features and celebrated power-transmission made famous by its beefier, heavier big brothers. And like the Pivot 14, this year’s Pivot 12 features Look’s versatile Dual WTR toe piece. With a mere twist of a screw, the binding adjusts to accommodate either the flat sole of a standard alpine boot or the rockered sole of a WTR boot. Bottom line: the Pivot 12 Dual WTR Binding delivers all the legendary on-snow performance of the other Pivots, but in a lighter-weight and less overbuilt package for skiers who have no need for World Cup-level DIN settings.


From Look Bindings:

The award-winning PIVOT is the most trusted and reliable alpine binding in skiing. The new PIVOT 12 DUAL WTR is a high-performance, dual standard freeride binding with a 4-12 indicator range. Compatible with both WTR "Walk to Ride" rockered soles and Alpine standard boot soles, our DUAL Standard Concept allows quick, easy adjustment between standards with a consistent, natural stance. 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 DUAL WTR is designed for aggressive all-mountain, freeride, and freestyle skiing.

Technical Details:

ELASTIC TRAVEL

More elastic travel results in more reliable retention to keep you in when you need. Look bindings boast the most lateral travel before release and the fastest re-centering, delivering superior shock absorption and reducing unwanted pre-release.

SHORT 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.

PIVOT TURNTABLE HEEL

Look's unique turntable design rotates directly under the tibia and provides 28mm of elastic travel to deliver unmatched shock absorption for significant reduction of pre-release.

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.

FULL ACTION TOE

The recently redesigned Full Action Toe drives more power into the ski while enhancing steering and control.

MULTI-DIRECTIONAL RELEASE

A 3D multidirectional release, reducing the risk of injury in all the different cases of fall, even the combined ones. In addition, the boot sole is always under constant pressure for better control and stablity.
