    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There's a reason people hoard these bindings and dig through ski swaps and thrift stores to find them. aside from added the option for a bigger brake, these bindings have been bulletproof and reliable since day 1. the narrow mounting pattern allows your ski to flex more freely, and they're also super low profile which allows for more control/keeps you closer to your ski. I've ridden it for years and not once have I ever encountered a prerelease problem, and they're solid steel so breaking them is damn near impossible. For the lighter guys, a 14 DIN version is also available.

    Greatest Binding for Expert Skiers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Look Pivot 18 is a premium, expensive alpine binding that I will mount on every single pair of skis that I own. As an aggressive, expert alpine skier, this is my binding of choice.

    If you ski fast, aggressively, do aerials or slash pillow on pow days, this is the binding for you. There are others here who will talk up the bindings construction, or why it works, but I won't do that––all I will say is that it works as it should, when it should.

    Say no more to plastic, faulty, pre-releasing bindings that result in injury––you'll only come out of a ski when you need to.

    This would be a five star binding, except for one design flaw––there's no proper place to use your pole to release this binding at the end of the day, meaning you'll mar the back part of the binding with scratches from ski poles or the heel of your boots.

    Otherwise, this is the binding of choice for the elite skier.

    Best binding on the market!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Mounted up a pair of Magic Js with the pivot 18s. The flex under the toe and heel is extremely precise enabling superior feel and control of the entire ski. The metal housing is burly enough to take a major beating. Best freeride binding on the market. It keeps you attached to your skis when you want to be, but releases your safely when necessary. Highly recommend this binding for experts who require the best.

    Best alpine binding on the market

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Change is scary for me, so when Rossi took these off the market a few years back, I freaked. Due to the collective panic among freeskiers, they brought em back, and they're as bomb-proof as ever. Sure they're heavy, but I'd rather have a binding that lasts forever than a piece of plastic junk that could fail unexpectedly. Bang them up all you want, it won't alter their performance. Think of it as an investment. You can keep swapping these out, long after you've destroyed they skis you mount them on.

    I mount these on all my skis, besides my touring setup. I'm anxiously awaiting the day when Look/Rossi designs a touring capable binding with a pivot heel...Are you listening Rossi?! They won't release unless you absolutely need to, no matter what you set your din. Get them and put them on everything.

    Never worry about a twisted knee again

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been skiing this binding and the Rossignol FKS model for the last 8 years. From my experience this binding will always release when you need it to, and will never release when you don't want it to. No one likes pre-releasing when charging through variable conditions at high speeds. This binding will ensure you stay connected to your boards unless you absolutely need to come out. When it does release it releases instantly and never hesitates.

    What drew me to this binding was how solid the construction was. After skiing several other bindings on the market, and destroying all of them within a season or two of riding, I decided to give these a go. With the full metal construction these bindings are bomber. That's right, huck all you want, gaps, large drops, park jumps, and anything else you fancy and this binding will take the abuse and ask for more. I have one pair that is well past the normal life span of a binding and it still works exceptionally well.

    The main drawback to this binding in the 18 din is the weight. However compared to other all metal bindings on the market this is as light or lighter weight than the comparable competition.

    Keep in mind that the 18 din toe is all metal and only releases on each side. The 14 and new 12 din bindings have a plastic toe making them lighter and allowing for a vertical release option as well.

    Another thing I love about these bindings is how low to the ski they allow your boot to sit. I find this helps with balance and makes the skis feel as though they are connected directly to the soles of your boots.

    The Look Pivot and Rossi FKS 18 din bindings have a side to side release where the toe can pivot a full 180 degrees. This allows you to twist out of the binding. The Pivot 14 and 12 have the split toe design which actually allows the toe piece to release vertically. I found a video from a Rossignol rep who explains this as he is introducing the Pivot at the 2011 FIS show. You can see how he explains this.

    Save the knees

    The 360 degree pivoting heel piece allows them to very smoothly release when you need them to and hold you in when you need to be held in.

    I usually ride these in the park at a DIN of 13. If I land straight and want to be held in I will be held in.


    I threw that 7 a little wrong and came up a little bit short. My right ski tip actually hit the knuckle of the landing. Instead of twisting my knee all weird, it release so smoothly that I still landed it with one ski on.
