Look's next generation of reliable bindings.
Look's had a reputation for reliable release and retention for years, and the NX 12 Alpine Ski Binding isn't going to do anything to change that. It's not the biggest, heaviest, or burliest binding out there, with a maximum DIN setting of 12 and a fully plastic housing, but it's lightweight, durable, and easy to use, at a price that won't make your eyes water. The Full Drive toepiece and NX heelpiece deliver easy step-in and solid retention, with enough travel that you don't have to crank your DIN up to scary settings to avoid unexpected release. With a brake width of 100mm, it'll fit most all-mountain skis, giving intermediate skiers a perfect platform to take their skiing to the next level.

- Q & A
It sounds like these could have a little too much play in them where it might take away from performance? Are these bindings good for off piste skiing in any conditions and at fairly high speeds with a DIN setting of 7, or 8? They say they are for intermediate to advances, but what about a lighter weight person who skis up to an expert level?
I think these would be a great binding for you. The amount of travel in the binding I think enhances the skiing experience as it makes the binding feel more fluid, it also ensures a safe release. These are great for a light weight skier that is skiing aggressively. If you have any other questions please let me know.
will this binding work with Volkl Kink 180cm
89 under foot
This binding would work with those skis, but depending on your height weight and skiing ability, I might want to looking at a stronger binding for you.
IF you did go with this binding, just make sure that you get the 90 mm waist brake as you do not want the brake dragging on turns.
