Description

A solid, durable binding at a price you can live with it.

Whether you slash groomer turns, prefer the park and pipe, rip zipper lines, or sniff out pow, turn to the Look PX 12 Ski Binding for solid security while you ski. Thanks to its Pivot Toe and PX Heel, the PX 12 delivers unsurpassed power transmission from ski to boot, while its 25mm of elastic travel reduces unwanted pre-releasing.

  • DIN range of 3.5 to 12 for all-mountain skiing
  • Pivot toe features four points of contact on the boot for maximum power transmission, while its 180-degree multi-directional release capabilities aid release
  • Toe also has high vertical and lateral elastic travel which provides shock absorption and reduces inadvertent release
  • 72mm AFD (anti-friction device) reduces friction during release and has a wide screw pattern for better contact with wide skis
  • Toe has 40mm of lateral travel
  • PX heel offers strong power transmission due to angled lateral arms and has a high forward pressure which improves ski rebound and responsiveness
  • Heel features 25mm of elastic travel, which is the longest travel of any binding on the market
  • Heel's wide mounting zone supplies better contact with wide skis
  • All-metal reinforced housing increases binding integrity
  • Three wide brake options {XXL: 115mm; Wide: 100mm; Medium: 90mm) accommodate modern to fat skis

Here's what others have to say...

Which should I get for a the Salomon...

Posted on

Which should I get for a the Salomon Rocker2s (108 waist width)? The "Wide" and bend them out or just go with the XXL. I feel like bending them 8mm might be too much.

Best Answer Responded on

Zach,

Honestly you could go either way but 8mm is reaching the point to where it takes a pretty good tweak or bend to make the brake work and some shops won't take it that far.

To be safe go for the 115, the rocker 2 isn't exactly a big time carver and you won't notice the extra width on powder days. Only time it would come into play is if you are trying to really tip the ski up on firm groomed snow and possibly drag the brake. Only you know how much the ski will be used in this situation.

should i get the wide(100mm)or the XXL(115mm) brake for skis with 105mm waist?

Responded on

Hey James F.,

I would suggest you get the 100mm brake size and bend them to fit over the edges of your ski. This will help you get a perfect fit and avoid the drag you would experience if you were to purchase the 115mm size. I hope this helps.

Responded on

100s should bend to fit pretty easily!

Responded on

Looks like the 2013 is 102mm in the waist so make sure you get the 100mm wide brake version and you will be good to go!

Anything else you need help with?

SF

Responded on

Skifreak Thanks! I got the Verdict here so looks like they are 100mm the BC person suggested the XXL but looks like the Wide is fine. I'm skiing the East and maybe a trip to Kicking Horse BC. would you mount them forward?

Responded on

I'm not sure why the BC person would have suggested the XXL, wide 100mm brake is perfect.

I'm going to pass on giving advice for the mounting position, I'm not familiar enough with Black Diamond skis to offer good advice.

Try re-submitting a new question on the black Diamond verdict page or call Backcountry or some other ski shops that carry them.

Good luck!

SK thanks for the help, got a bit to wait to mount them. I'll try BD's page. Have a great 14-15 season!

Hey Lee,

Pick up the wide variant with the 100 mm brake and you should be set.

Could i mount the 115mm on a 118 mm ski?

Could i mount the 115mm on a 118 mm ski?

Responded on

Mack,

Of course manufacturers and some ski techs will suggest "No", but I've spread the brakes to fit skis that were up to 5 mm larger than the brake. Personally I'd do it.

Enjoy!

Responded on

Hey Mack - these guys are correct, mounting a 115 brake on a 118 ski shouldn't be a problem. Bending them just a hair in each direction to make them fit is commonly done.

great power transfer and sharp looks

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

Put these on the wife's Czar's earlier this season and they've been great, the green/blue/white color looks great with the green accents on the Czar's and the XXL brake fits the ski perfectly. The bindings have a wide enough base to give great power transfer and while they don't offer as much knee protection as the FKS/Pivot bindings they still have a really nice and consistent elastic release and are more than adequate for the average all mountain skier.

Responded on

Why do you say the FKS/Pivot offer more knee protection? It seems the PX also have the pivoting heel, which is where the protection comes from.

no problems yet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got these to go on a pair of Rossi Sickle skis and a pair of full tilt boots. They are a sturdy binding and I haven't popped out once yet. After a full season (30+ days) they still look to be in good shape. The only problem I have with them is stepping out of them, with the high release lever (not sure what the technical name is) on the back it makes it really hard to step on one while the ski is still on the other...so I usually have to use a pole to pop the first boot out, and it takes two hands worth of pressure to do that...overall a solid binding that I would consider buying again.

Trustworthy binding

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Good bindings for the money. Have a had a few glitches with them but mainly due to frozen snow. You do have to be aware of the "dildo" as I've landed super backseat and gotten it to the upper thigh. Also if your really tall as I am, pay attention when getting on short lift chairs as it's gotten caught up on the bottom of the chair however I have had that problem with other bindings. Over all a great reliable binding!

Decent, but a step below the Pivot/FKS

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had a few pairs of the PX12's over the years, and they're a great binding. They can definitely take a beating, but I still managed to rip a few brakes off on switch landings. They're a great binding, but if you want something really durable and safer for your knees, I would recommend going up to their big brother the Look Pivot/Rossignol FKS. However, for intermediate freestyle skiing and regular resort riding, these are great bindings.

Are these bindings adjustable to handle...

Posted on

Are these bindings adjustable to handle different boot lenghts? Also, it looks like the black and white version has a moving AFD while the green and blue does not - is that correct?

Responded on

They are adjustable within 1-2 boot sizes.. .. make sure you know how to adjust the forward pressure as well as the DIN before playing with it... you are also right about the moving AFD

Posted on

I just bought a pair of Rossi S7's that have a 115mm waist. Will the XXL have large enough brakes or do I need to look at the more expensive look bindings?

Responded on

The XXL brakes on these should work for the 115mm waist skis, although it will be a tight fit. If needed you can get away with bending the breaks out slightly.
That won't work for big size differences but where your ski waists are also 115 these brakes will work for those skis.

How would these be on Liberty Helix's?...

Posted on

How would these be on Liberty Helix's? Helix's are 105mm waist, I suppose I'll have to go with the 115mm?

Responded on

I see nothing wrong with that set up, should make for some fun all mountain sticks. And yes you are correct, you will want to go with the XXL's.

Great Feel!

These are great all around! The colors were an added bonus plus they pretty much do everything I need. For a intermediate/advanced skier these are great!

Great

Love these bindings. Feel solid and not overly heavy. I am an aggressive skier but don't feel like I need my DIN set at 14+. These were perfect for what I was looking for.

Was short on time

Bought at the last minute so matched up kendo skis with these binding. They clamp in nice and hold the boot well. But hard to get out of but I will get use to it. So far holding up well. But they are over a pound heavier than most bindings. Other those flaws they are a good binding.

Great binding

I use this binding on my park skis and they stand up to a lot of abuse. Very happy with them and got no complaints after 2 seasons in the park and slopes.

great binding!

bought these as a gift to go with Fischer Koa 110 Ski and they have nothing but great things to say! great fit and great, comfortable binding.

Great

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got these in Blue\green to put on a pair of Atomic Supreme skis for my wife, they feel really solid and seem to be great bindings, the colors went really well with the skis too, they really look cool IMO. All in all they have been great and as usual the service and delivery from backcountry was awesome. My only complaint is that it took me a couple mins to figure out the DIN scale, at first glance the numbers are all over the place, I had to count off the marks and then it all made sense.
