older Look pivot bindings - junior / adult versions?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
From a little web searching it appears that Look used to make junior version of the Pivot binding -- in the 2000 / 2002 time frame I think. What was the difference between the junior and adult versions? They appear the same in photos. If a binding is marked as a P 9.0, but it's DIN range is 3 - 10, am I correct in concluding it's a junior binding, because the adult version of the P 9.0 had a DIN range of 3 - 12?

I assume the binding doesn't know the age of the skier (except maybe the fancy new Neox). So could any age skier use the "junior" p9, provided the DIN range is OK?

Same question for Markers - one of my kids is on a Marker junior race binding. So long as DIN is OK-- why should age matter?

There are two distinctly different types of junior bindings, those that are meant for the Jr DIN standard sole, there is an adult and a Jr DIN sole, and the bindings you have mentioned, the P 9.0 and the Marker Jr Comp bindings which are actually adult bindings with a race graphic and a DIN to 10. The Marker binding is the Comp 1000 the P 9.0 now is called a P10. They are adult recreational bindings rebadged as Jr Race. If the DIN range suits you there is no reason not to use them.
