So last month I twisted my knee real bad and my px-12 bindings didnt release.. Im 5'11", and 165 pounds. DIN was set to 6.5 . Long story short, Im getting an MRI this week because my knee still doesnt feel any better and Ive missed a ton of the 2.5 month ski season in Pennsylvania. From what I understand, the PX-12's have a high elastic travel, so why did this happen?.... Should I be looking for a new binding? Would pivots be beneficial? Help please I dont want to go through this again..

A binding is never guaranteed to release. It could have been a number of things but it was probably just the exact motion your knee twisted when coming out of the binding, and wouldnt have come out of most bindings.

Sometimes your bindings will release, other times they might not. Its just how the system works, due to the fact that DIN settings are based on a RANGE of heights, a RANGE of weights, a RANGE of boot sole lengths, and the assumption that your skier type is accurate, and youre actually skiing at that agression level. Bindings arent designed to interpret whether or not it is appropriate to release, although some bindings (like the px12) may put pressure on your boot in a different direction than others. Bottom line, make sure your stats are all 100% legit and check that shit out at a shop
Simply wrong. The turntable is not a hell lateral release, and while it may provide some extra elasticity in incidents where a pre-release may occur, it's release that much different than a non pivot design.
And is not in any way "safer" in incidents where a knee injury could occur.
