Next time you're at the resort, take a look around you and you'll quickly realize how important this binding is to the ski world. The reason is simple: the Look Pivot 18 GW Ski Bindings are just the best darn resort bindings you can get. They give you unmatched elasticity for safety and prerelease prevention, minimal stack height for precise power transfer, and a short mounting area to avoid messing with the natural flex of the ski. 'Nuff said. Now available with a GripWalk compatible AFD for all your modern boot sole compatibility needs.
Aluminum Race Toe Piece–Featuring 45mm of elastic travel and 180⁰ multi-directional release, the all-metal RACE toe piece offers maximum power, precision, and durability across all disciplines, from the Alpine World Cup to Freestyle, Freeride and Moguls.
180˚ Multi-Directional Release–A true mechanical upward release that functions independently from the heel for the most effective multi-directional protection in the case of a fall.
Dual Standard Concept (ISO 5355 Alpine and GripWalk)–Look strategically reinforced the toe housing, increased the toe ramp, elongated the toe-wings, and created a toe that is compatible with both ISO 5355 Alpine and GripWalk soles.
Toe Lateral Elasticity–45 mm
Turntable Heel–Look’s unique turntable design rotates directly under the tibia for reduced risk of injury and provides 28mm of elastic travel to deliver unmatched shock absorption for significant reduction of pre-release.
Exceptional Vertical Elasticity–28mm of elasticity in the heel (the most of any binding on the market) yields a reduction in unwanted pre-releasing.
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.
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.
Long Elasticity–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.
