2022 Look Pivot 14 GW Ski Bindings
Look Pivot 14 GW bindings
If you don't know, you need to know, the new Look Pivot 14 GW bindings have the benefits needed for top-end hard charging freestyle and freeskiers that are throwing down big tricks on the mountain. No matter if you are crushing 540's landing switch in the backcountry, in the terrain park or the pipe, these new Pivots are the real deal binding you need. The Look Pivot 14 GW bindings offer the shortest mounting zone of any available alpine bindings for a lower swing weight, awesome response and more of a consistent ski flex. The Pivot 14 has a DIN range of 5 to 14 and comes in with an overall weight of 2210 grams per pair and a .5 degree Ramp Angle. The most important features to discuss for sending it big are the 28 mm of elastic travel and 7 points of contact. The elastic travel greatly increases your chances to STOMP all your airs, by greatly reducing the risk of binding pre-release, keeping you locked in on your setup. The 7 points of contact found in the Pivot family of bindings works to greatly increase lateral energy, driving more power to the edges of your skis giving you the most control of any binding on the market. Being compatible with both Grip Walk or Alpine boot soles, the new Pivot 14 GW bindings with Look's classic turntable heel piece have been the binding of choice for skiers with a touch of freestyle for many years.

I think those brakes will hang too much. I have the Enforcer 100 with those bindings with the 95 mm brake. I do some "customizing" to the brakes, including filing down some of the plastic that coats the metal on the brake as well as a bit of stretching. There will be some rubbing during the break-in phase, but overall, I put 95 mm brakes on 100 mm skis all day. I even have a Pivot with the 95's on a K2 Pinnacle 105. Other bindings will fit better naturally, the Marker Griffon comes with a perfectly fitting 100 mm brake, but I'm a Pivot snob so I make it work. Hope that helps!
Nope. As long as you're in the range, it's all good. As a Pivot fan myself, I say go for it. Have fun!
I just read your reply to the other gentleman. Is there any way this binding with the 95mm break would fot on some enforcer free 104s?
Yes, it takes a bit of bending, and results in a bit of rubbing, but is a better option than the 115's. I have a 95 on a pair of 105's, so it is certainly possible.
Yup, there should be no compatibility issues between the Hawx and the Pivots. The Pivots are a Grip Walk compatible binding so they fit pretty much all ski boots.
160 lb advanced, pretty aggressive skier. DIN set to 8. I will be Mounting to Kastle DX 85s. This will be my front side biased all mountain set up. ( this is As close to a true carving ski as I will probably buy. Mx series was a little to demanding for my style) Would you suggest the SPX over the pivot for a more carving oriented setup?
I fall into the "put pivots on everything" camp but I can definitely see where they're coming from. The pivot is about as low to the ski as you can get for a binding and in carving that can translate to a slower edge to edge transition since you don't have the added leverage of a more raised binding like the SPX or a Marker Griffon. These bindings raise your boot higher off the ski which lets you generate more leverage when angulating the ski, giving you a faster snappier transition through a carve. I love pivots but for carving I would have to recommend something a little more purpose built for the job like the SPX's or even one of Markers X-comp or X-Cell series bindings if you want something a little more serious. Hope this helps!
