Input on the look px12 bindings
i searchbared it for a little not much time spent looking but....
my rossi scratch 12 bindings kept breaking so i went to the shop and theygave me brand new look px12 bindings their like black with silver lettering idk what model..but are they a safe binding ? and i wont pop out easily if my dins a 6 and im 5'9 180. for my first day riding them tomorw ? and are they a reliable binding that wont break easily and pre eject...
They're just the straight up look px12 not the lifter or jib or the ti. They're basically the exact same as your rossi's except with a different paint job. So if you liked those you'll like these.
Good bindings, reliable, favoured by a majority of NS for current consumer bindings.
ha, idk if i mentioned this in the thread bc i have really bad memory lose lol
but my bindings kept breaking and they put px12son them fo freeeee haha they might be jibs im not sure im to lazy to go look
just curious, but why? they seem to me like they dont have very good release properties. input?
Because half of NS is small 15-16 year olds that don't need 15 din bindings because their size or skiing ability. I'm a small guy, and due to my size px12's work fine.
I think they have excellent release properties - Just because they aren't Turntable/FKS style, doesn't mean that they aren't good. I believe they have THE most elastic travel out there, multidirectional release in the toe, fairly lightweight - overall very reliable, for the price.
I think the older Pivot series were better purely because of the heel design, but the PX aren't bad at all.
i'm on my second year with my px 12's and i've never had any problems with damage or prereleasing... din of about 7 is fine for me at 5'10" 165. really durable binding that won't keep you in the shop with repairs
personally, i find them kinda heavy. and the nose pieces pre release for me every so often which sucks. also i would like to add that a din of 6 for a person who weighs 180 pounds seems much too low. i weigh 125 and my din the the px12 is at 8 or 9
I'm 5'9-10ish, 150lbs and have mine set at 7.
They are really really great except for so so landings switch where they come out mad easily. I think I need to get my din set higher tho.
Also, anyone have any info on next year's salomon STH 14. There are two models, one with the STH16 toepiece it looks like and another with kind of a Z12/S912 toe piece combo. Both seem to be STH so they are obvi a lot better then the shitty plastic ones. On the one with the newish toe piece, it says it has a "pivot" of some kind,
Any info on that guys?
thats what i was thinking im 5'8" adn 140 and im on 6 on my jesters you should be at 8-10 depending on how comfortable with your skiing abilties you are
i thouroughly enjoy the performance of my look px12 jib bindings.
