These bindings are terrible pieces of garbage. Their releases are completely unpredictable and you always ski in fear of a random release. The durability is so dreadful that it would actually be an improvement if they were made of papier mache. Do not buy these bindings, ever.
The purpose of a binding is to hold your boot to your ski and these bindings did could not even perform that task. The performance was unacceptable.
The PLASTIC comes in pretty black and red and looks quite EXTREME, despite the performace.
I paid 140$ for mine, and I probably would have had better luck if I spent the money on superglue. Although they were cheap, a low price isn't a good reason to buy a piece of garbage.
These bindings release whenever they feel like. I've landed as perfect as you can get and had a ski blow off. I've had skis fly off in the air and had them blow off while ripping down a groomer. I only weighed about 160lbs when I owned these bindings and I still had problems with them prereleasing when they were maxed out. Even with the correct forward pressure they would fly off all over the place. They seem to release whenever you least want them to. The way you I in a halfpipe seems to trigger the random release and I had several times where I landed perfectly and would have one ski fly off.
I destroyed 2 pairs of PX12s before the shop upgraded me to a PX14 Titanium that I also destroyed. The first pair of PX12s had both of the toe wings fly right off. The 2nd pair had the plastic tab that actually contacts to boot break off and the PX14's had the plastic plate that the binding sits on crack in half.
