    The binding of choice for burly freeriders.

    Getting the first chair on a powder day is like catching a unicorn, but you did it, and now you have the honor of laying down the first line in a big, beautiful bowl filled with the softest snow of the season; the last thing you want is your ski to fall off on the first turn, so keep it strapped to your boot with Look's solid Pivot 18 Ski Binding. With an 8-18 DIN setting, the Pivot is as burly (or as soft) as bindings come.

    Look made the Pivot completely out of metal, with plenty of innovations to keep this clamp solid season after season. The full action toe piece works with the turntable heel to provide 28mm of elastic travel and deliver shock absorption. More specifically, that means this binding strengthens boot-to-binding coupling by 14% and provides a more efficient power transmission, enhanced steering, and control by 10%, There are seven points of contact, as opposed to the standard five, to drive more power to the ski. A short mounting zone makes this binding easy to install, and it reduces swing weight, improves response, and deepens your ski's flex.

    • 8-18 DIN suitable for advanced and expert skiers
    • Toe piece and turntable heel maximizes power transmission
    • Short mounting zone ensures consistent ski flex
    • Seven points of contact enhance lateral energy transmission

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The added metal gives you the piece of mind that your toe piece won't rip off your ski and the DIN range of 8-18 is ideal for heavier/more aggressive skiers. These bindings will last many seasons and feature a pivoting heel, which adds safety to the release function. I've used these for the past 3 seasons and they've never let me down!

    Trust worthy and long lasting!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Look Pivot 18 Ski Binding is the same, binding I competed on and still use today. They have lasted 10 years and been on 7 pairs of skis. I have put them through the ringer and still have no issues. Weather yore racing, ripping bumps, skiing big mountain lines or throwing down in the park. These bindings will never pre-release and are my most trusted binding! For a little extra cash, you get a lot in return!!


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

    Solid binding for skiing hard all over the mountain. Never had any durability or release issues. Really nothing to complain about.

    Best bindings out!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I weigh about 200lbs and would consider myself a pretty aggressive skier. These are such solid bindings and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a hard charging binding. I put these on two pairs of skis this year and they have both treated me very well. These allow me to send cliffs at snowbird and not worry about coming out, but when they are supposed to release they seem to every time. If you are questioning if this would be too much of a binding for you, feel free to contact me directly with your questions. My email is and I would be happy to answer any ski questions you might have.

    Hard Charging

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    In my opinion the best hard charging binding out there. Keeps you nice and low to the ski, which greatly improves the "feel" of the ski. The pivot release give you the confidence to run a higher din with minimizing the risk of knee injury - making it a great option for aggressive skiers.

    Gold Standard

      Look did a phenomenal job with this binding. I can see why other reviewers say they have used them for 10+ years because they are the most structurally sound binding I have ever skied - they will take you confidently anywhere you want to go.


        These bindings are the best bindings I've ever used, I have been using them for as long as I can remember. Very durable, they have lasted me years of constant shredding. Would recommend to any one of any skill level!

        Bulletproof Go-To

          This is my first choice in bindings every time. I have these mounted on my 85mm skis as well as my 116mm waisted skis. They hold me in when I need them to but also have no problem releasing if I take a nasty tumble. They are also bomb proof. I have had a pair for over 8 years that I have moved from ski to ski and they have passed a systems test and performed perfectly from day one.

          Solid retention

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I picked these up this year for a new pair of skis. I prefer the added metal of high end high din bindings, since they will last forever. The 8-18 DIN rating is great for anyone who skis 10+ and i feel incredibly solid while in these bindings.

          Best Bindings

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I have been using the Pivot/FKS bindings for as long as I can remember and they are the best bindings out. They are super durable and can take any beating you throw at them. If you are looking for a binding for hard charging look no further.

          Burly Binding

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          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? 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.

          Additionally, the high DIN (18)allows you to push your ski as hard as you want, and really allows for great power transmission. I picked up the 130 mm for my Icelantic Gypsy's that are 125 underfoot and they work perfect. As an added plus, the toe piece on this binding rotates a full 180 degrees, adding more safety, so don't freak out if the toe piece rotates on you.... it isn't broken. 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.

          Unanswered Question

          Does this version have the same rollers in the toe piece as the Look Pivot 14?
