2022 Look Pivot 12 GW Ski Bindings
2022 Look Pivot 12 GW Ski Bindings
The 2021 Look Pivot 12 GW ski bindings are an ideal choice for lighter advanced and expert skiers who are looking for that classic Pivot binding in a more user-friendly DIN range. No need for the big 18's here, 12 is more than enough for most skiers. Built with all of Look's strong Pivot technology, the 12 checks a lot of boxes for a lot of skiers. Built with Look's 180-degree multi-directional toe release, the Pivot 12 is a safe binding that loves to be put to the test. Additionally, the upward release is independent of the heel and this gives effective protection in the case of a fall. You really want to not notice your bindings until you need them, and the Look Pivot 12 is a great example of that. The turntable heel allows for that sideways heel release and the design allows for maximum elastic travel preventing pre-releases and inspiring confidence. Nobody wants to be out there skiing and have your bindings not release appropriately. Also, just the fear of knowing that they might is enough to make this decision an easier one. GripWalk compatible for 2021, the Pivot 12 will accommodate more boots, and therefore more skiers. The lower DIN range also helps broaden the Pivot's appeal so if you've always wanted one but thought they were only for high-end professionals and experts, the 12 is here to welcome and usher in a new generation of Look Pivot binding fans.

I see u have a 115mm brake. Is that too wide.
If you can answer I’ll order and plan to have them mounted in your shop.
You can go with the 95 brake and be fine with that. Enough wiggle room.
The 115 brake will be much too wide.
Yes, you will need the wider 115mm brake width for the 104 Free.
Yes, the 115 brake will fit your DPS Wailer just fine.
A few questions on the Look Pivot bindings:
1. In another brand/model, he specifically mentioned the binding took a lot of force and could be difficult to click into in deep snow. Does the Pivot heel piece have any advantage in deep snow, such that I can use my hand to pull the heel piece over the back of the boot when it's too soft to stomp it into place?
2. Any greater frequency with pivot heel piece screws pulling out of skis vs. non-pivot heel mounts?
3. Is there a rule of thumb on which ski brake width to choose per a given ski width? (I see so many questions & the answer isn't always intuitive to me)
4. Does SE have various Look Pivot ski brake widths in stock? - I see some models say some widths aren't in stock - aren't the different brake widths compatible over all Pivot heel pieces?
Thanks for your help!
1. The shorter mount zone makes the ski flex more naturally, and this is more the case in softer snow, so yes there's a performance advantage here. Once you get used to the heel piece, it's no big deal. If you have to use your hand to get the binding closed, though, that probably means there's too much snow stuck in there.
2. Skied Pivots for over 20 years and have never had a binding pull out. Same for regular bindings.
3. No hard rule for brake width, I use a 95 on skis from 90 mm all the way to 105, with some manipulation.
4. Brakes are not interchangeable at the retail level like Marker Royal brakes. You can change brakes, but we do not.
