Look PX12 Ti Lifter Wide Legend Ski Binding

Pros: Once engaged and skiing they are they most secure and least-prone to pre-release

Cons: Weight, A challenge to adjust, Difficult on/off, Too many variations

Once on your boots and skiing they're the best.  Otherwise Look seems to be resting on its laurels:

 

1) "Just 5.6lbs." - that makes them one of the heaviest DIN 12 bindings on the market (even Marker's new Griffon is ~1.5lbs. lighter and Marker ain't known for light bindings).

2) Adjusting the DIN settings requires odd-shaped tools and way too much muscle.  And the DIN setting scales lack enough resolution to see if you've changed the setting by the typical 0.25 increment that's best when experimenting with the release.

3) Getting in and out of the bindings takes way more effort than other bindings.

4) How many variations do they need to make? - the basic composite model, Ti, Jib, Lifter, Wide, Ti Lifter Wide,....  (not to mention the variations between the Look, Dyna & Rossi branded versions).  Why don't they just make one or two DIN 12 models and allow you to get the options you want rather than making you hunt down the specific model variation you need (i.e., one with a 115mm brake that isn't sold as such)?

 

Other than that I'm very pleased with my purchase....

Great solid everday binder with DIN to 12.

 

Locks the heal in solidly.

 

Only con I have is with Look/Dynastar's - tough to put your heel back in on the hill

Description:

The Look PX 12 Ti Lifter Wide Legend Ski Bindings weigh in at just 5.6lb per pair, and come with wide brakes that fit skis up to 100mm underfoot. With a DIN range of 3.5-12, this binding works for progressing to aggressive experts. The 6mm of rise under the toe piece and 6.5mm under the heelpiece add leverage to aid rolling on to an edge, especially when mounted on fat skis. The PX 12's suspended heelpiece provides more lateral support and decreases the amount of energy lost between the boot and the ski, which means you get improved performance without exerting any extra energy. This binding also features elastic travel that delivers shock and vibration absorption while guaranteeing a timely release during a fall.
