If you’re skiing on Rossignol or Dynastar race skis, you’ll be familiar with Look race bindings, which are the only race bindings compatible with those two brands. Two years ago Look redesigned their race bindings, removing the connection between the toe and heel piece. The impact of this was to allow the ski to flex more truly throughout the turn, and the change was very well received. Look is sticking with this two-piece race binding for the 2021 season.
For junior Rossignol race skis or junior Dyanstar race skis, Look offers two compatible binding options. The lowest DIN junior race binding is the Look NX7, which has a DIN setting of 2-7. We recommend this binding for junior racers skiing at a DIN setting of 3-6. For larger junior athletes who are skiing at the higher range of the NX7, Look makes the SPX 10 binding, which has a DIN range of 3-10. When possible, we like to put juniors on the SPX 10, rather than the NX7, as the SPX 10 will likely last more than one season as an athlete continues to grow.
For adult Rossignol and Dynastar race skis, Look has three race binding options. The lowest DIN option is the Look Rockerrace 12, with a DIN range of 3.5-12. This binding is best for athletes who are new to adult race skis and/or skiing at a DIN setting of less than 10. Next up is the Look Rockerrace 15, which has a DIN range of 8-15. We recommend this binding for athletes skiing at a DIN setting of nine or greater. Finally, Look’s top-of-the-line race binding with the greatest retention properties is the Look Rockerrace PX 18. This binding has a DIN range of 10-18 and is recommended for the most aggressive athletes on the hill. For this binding, an athlete should be skiing at a DIN setting of 12 or higher.
