How does p10 p12 bindings work?
I know this is a stupid binding but I am a noob and first time that I have my own skis. So I just got a pair of p10 bindings today, but whats so special about them? How does the turnable heel move? Do I need to worry about any maintenance? thanks and let the flaming begins i guess...
stupid binding? not sure if I agree.
But the benefits of the
pivot series basically comes down to elasticity and type of release.
The toe piece has three directions of consistent release, with a lot of
elasticity (which in essence reduces the likelihood of prerelease) which
you aren't going to get with other bindings. The turntable heel also
keeps you in, while also having a lot of elasticity, or can allow the boot to move slightly for more a safer release; it can rotate slightly, which can facilitate release, or retention, in certain situations, such as twisting situations, where a static heel might not be of much benefit. Also, the range of motion of the heel vertically has more elastic motion than any other binding, providing downward pressure as well as more margin for retention or release, or something to that effect.
As with all bindings, just keep them clean. Dirt and shit reduces the consistency and effectiveness of release.
lol sorry i mean stupid question...thanks for the tip though
