Lightweight touring function meets ultimate power transmission.

Built for rugged ski mountaineering ascents and bomber freeride descents, the Fritschi Diamir Vipec 12 Binding is an evolution of the world's first alpine touring binding to combine the lightweight pin system of a tech binding with the standardized safety release capabilities of an alpine binding. The result is a binding that provides both lightweight touring functionality and maximum alpine-style power transmission. The Vipec easily switches between walk and ski modes without the need to step out of the binding, and its toe piece features micro-adjustable width wings to accommodate the wide variety of tech insert styles on the market.

A favorite of avalanche professionals, the Vipec features a two-stage heel riser, allowing for three different easily adjustable configurations depending on the grade of terrain. This binding's pre-defined safety release capabilities utilize a gliding heel piece with dynamic travel for consistent contact pressure and reliable release. Lateral, frontal, and defined release capable, the Vipec is built to be powerfully stable while still providing a safe ride.

  • Lateral, frontal, and defined release capabilities
  • Walk and ski mode Easy Switch adjustment
  • Micro-adjustable width toe piece wings
  • Two-stage heel riser (three configurations)
  • Safety Tech System
  • Integrated dynamic range

This is a great alternative to Dynafits! Awesome uphill capabilities with added security of the lateral toe release for the decent or the down days in the resort, and haven’t had any problems with prerelease. Swapping between tour/ski modes and adjustment of heel risers with a pole is effortless. Only gripe is the toe piece can be a little difficult to get into at first if you’re accustom to the Dynafit style. After the first few times it becomes much easier. No regrets on this great purchase!

I'm considering using these with my Scarpa Terminator X boots (which are NTN-telemark, but also compatible with TLT). Good idea or bad idea? I guess I need a spacer to put under the bellows to keep the boot from flexing. Any idea where I get the spacers? Do they come with the bindings?

Never mind. Scarpa says that boot-binding combination will not work.
