Diamir Vipec 12


Rob says: Fantastic, innovative binding that has set new standards. If you are looking for a tech binding that gives a DIN lateral release, then this is it. It is heavier than its competitor, but that would be its only sacrifice.

Favourite features: It has to be the lateral release on the toe.

Works well with: All Tech compatible boots.

Product Description

About pin binding systems

In pin bindings, the ski boot is secured by pins in the toe and heel parts and by inserts in the sole. The walk mode is controlled by the rotation of the boot via two pins in the toe part, which engage in corresponding inserts in the sole. System advantages:

  • Truly free heel – no moving weight in uphill mode
  • Light weight
  • Lower standing position

The Safety Pin System from Diamir-Fritschi Swiss

Advantages compared to conventional pin bindings:

  • Front lateral defined safety release
  • Frontal defined safety release
  • Safety release in uphill mode
