Round 6 – Binding Selection, Pick 9As of last winter, skiers had no need to scour eBay for beat-up, over-priced Pivot bindings with super-narrow brakes. After a few years of being discontinued, the Look Pivot, the best binding in my world, made its way back in 2010. After skiing in these bear traps, it’s hard to feel confident again in any other binding. Solid metal, a macho DIN, and a huge amount of elasticity and shock absorption means you’re locked in for the biggest hits, high speeds, and gnarly lines. On those rare occasions that I do pop out, the swiveling turn-table heels help save my knees, or at least what’s left of them.
