    All the performance of the Pivot in a lighter package.

    The Look Pivot 12 Dual Ski Binding is the kid brother of the legendary Pivot 14 and 18, but that doesn't mean it can't hold its own when the shredding gets serious. It features a lighter housing than its siblings, but still has the same famous Pivot heel piece and Full Drive toe that made the Pivot series legendary. The heel piece rotates directly under the tibia to provide consistent release in twisting falls, and the toe and heel have the most elastic travel on the market, which means the DIN can be set lower without risking premature release, so your skis will stay on and come off only when they should, letting you ski harder and safer.

    With a DIN that goes from 4-12, the Pivot 12 is a great choice for aggressive skiers on the younger and lighter end of the spectrum, or adult riders who want safety, security, and performance without having to invest in a super-rugged and aggressive binding. Look updated this binding to accommodate alpine ski boots with WTR rockered soles as well as the standard soles.

    • Versatile binding for freestyle, freeride, and all-mountain skiing
    • 4-12 DIN range for hard-charging experts
    • WTR compatibility fits standard alpine boots and rockered soles
    • Toe piece and turntable heel maximizes power transmission
    • Short mounting zone ensures consistent ski flex
    • Seven points of contact enhance lateral energy transmission
    • Item #DYN004J

    Awesome Bindings

      The look pivot binding is one of my best purchases of the ski season. Clicking into these bindings is super smooth, but don’t worry your boots are in good hands. The lateral rigidity allows for efficient energy transfer into every turn with no need to hold back. If you are looking for a binding that can range from the most aggressive pow day to the chill groomer back to the car, these are for you.

      Ready to Rip

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      After a season on some lesser bindings, I upgraded to the Look Pivot 12 and will never look back.
      These bindings feel super secure and release only when you need, never when you don't. I am an intermediate skier, and find these to be plenty tough for where and how I ski. I've had them out on 5 days so far, and looking forward to many many more.

      The best binding ever!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought my first pair of pivot bindings 10 years ago and will never ski anything else. They have been so solid. I just bought these for my girlfriends new set up. They came out with this 12 din model at an amazing price and this is all the binding she needs. I have had few knee surgeries from non ski related accidents and these bindings keep my peace of mind with out the pre-release when its not wanted.

      the GOAT

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These will forever be the binding I use. Rides good, feels good, looks good.
      You can't go wrong with the pivot heel piece. Knee saver, and are super easy to clip into- even in deep snow. I am 6'2, 190 and set my DIN at about 9 and they have been awesome. I have taken some hard falls from 40-50 feet and they didn't even budge, or they released to the side as they should saving me some damage.. Very reliable, get a pair now! you won't regret it at all.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These 12's are just the amount of din adjustment I need as an intermediate skier. I feel more comfortable on the pivot system that I am not going to pre-release or destroy my knees. They're pretty light, easy to get into and out of. I'll never stray too far from this binding!

      Easy to clip into.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Purchased these bindings with the Blizzard Cochise Ski … they've been awesome and look good on my skis. They are light and easy to clip in even in deep powder, but probably what I like most about them is the rotating heel plate. The toe plate also has a similar feature. This gives me confidence and comfort they will release before messing up my knees.

      Solid bindings

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Nice light bindings and easy to get in and out of. I ski powder on these and they feel great. I haven't had any issues with getting in or out of the bindings.

      I haven't taken a bad enough fall on them to say if there are any valid concerns with them turning instead of my knee, but having had these same style bindings from Look in the past I'm not worried about it. These things will twist before your knee does.

      they are pretty light as well. Coming from an integrated marker binding setup on my old K2 Recons these things feel incredibly light.

      They're expensive, and they are worth it. I'm happy to pay for a good quality binding that keeps me in when I need it and let's me go when holding on will result in a pricey ER visit :).

      Pivot heel in a lighter package

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love the pivot system. Really smooth release, simple bindings that work really well. Downside is when you get into the 14 and 18, they can get heavy. These 12's give me plenty of DIN adjustment for how I ski and they are a lighter weight. The addition of WTR compatibility is a nice touch as well.

      Great for intermediate or light wght skr

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a great option for the intermediate or light weight skier. The WTR gives you the ability to run any alpine boot while keeping the traditional pivot low to the ski mount - allowing for better response as you feel the ski.

      Go To Bindings For Any Level Skier

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Pivot 12 Bindings by Look are a go to for any skier whether its your first day on the hill or your dropping the best cliffs in the side country. The most notable feature of these bindings is the rotating heel plate giving you a full 180 degrees of ability to release when things get a little squirrely. The toe plate features a similar system with internal wheels acting as the toe release point. With DIN options from 4-12, these will be perfect for most skiers from your most aggressive to your freshest rookies. Great price for a long lasting binding.

      Great bindings!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These bindings look great on my skis and are very good for skiers who ski hard and don't want to hurt there knees on a fall with the pivoting binding. Boots stay in place and are easy to get in and out of even in deeper snow. Highly recommend these bindings to beginner and intermediate skiers.

      Can't go wrong

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'm new to Pivot bindings but love them....solid construction, DIN to 12 is enough for me so there's no reason to go 14 or 18 (I'm not landing 20-footers). Can't get enough Fluoro....

      Great Binder

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

      I've been riding Look Pivot binding for years now. I keep coming back to them since they always release when you need and never release when you don't want them to. The design of these bindings allows for industry leading elastic rebound which means your never going to pre-release when you don't want to. This means you'll stick all the landings you want and only release when you absolutely need to. When you need to come out these always let go. The turntable heel piece is a knee saver. Oh, and you also have one of the lowest stack heights in the industry so you're right on top of the ski.

      If there is one drawback to these bindings it's that they are hard to get into in deep snow or on a steep slope. The turntable heel piece is harder to line up than most. I gave these to my girlfriend and she loves them.

      Great binding for beginners

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

      Do you hate having to hold back out of fear that your bindings won't release properly and your ski season along with the $$ you spent on your pass is down the drain? Is this your first year buying instead of renting? Fear no more- the folks over at Look know what they are doing with these bindings and I have never felt more confident while skiing because I can rely on the bindings releasing properly when it counts with the pivoting heel. While I personally recommend the pivot 14 or 18 for more experienced skiers, the 12 is a great binding for those getting into skiing, but want a very well designed binding.

      Additionally, the 12 din allows you to push your ski as hard as you want, and really allows for great power transmission. As an added plus, this year's model makes the binding WTR compatible so it fits standard alpine boots and rockered soles- saving you some extra cash for gas. Only complaint is that the pivoting heel as to be realigned most times before you pop back in.... just another reason to not stop skiing.
