Fritschi have redesigned their Pin Tech binding system with lateral toe release, the Vipec 12, for the 2018 season.

The Vipec Evo 12 builds on the Vipec 12 Black keeping the unique feature of an adjustable lateral toe release but with improved ease of use and sleek design.

The new toe piece is very easy to step into (this was one of the big issues with the first generation white bindings). The new system means that the Vipec Evo 12 is now one of the easiest bindings on the market to use. They have also reshaped the housing of the binding to make them more compatible with a wider range of touring boots plus the Evo toe piece has a new system to release the front pins in the event of an 'over the front' fall forwards which works with all compatible boots and does away with the old 3 profiles of colour clip system making the set up more straight forward.

The heel piece has a new brake system which is designed to get rid of the problem of the brakes not fully deploying which some people occasionally found with the previous version. They have also improved the Tour / Ski switching mechanism to make the lock into either mode much more positive and it is now very clear if the ski mode isn't fully engaged.

With a weight of 1.1KG per pair the Vipec Evo 12 are as light as other fully featured pin tech ski touring bindings but the adjustable lateral toe release (adjustable 5 - 12) means that skiers are less likely to sustain injuries in certain types of fall.

The fact that the lateral release is at the toe also means that the heel isn't required to rotate as it is in almost all other pin tech binding systems which in turn means that you get excellent ski control with very little loss of power.

As with other pin tech bndings, the Vipec Evo 12 feature a low stand height (height from the deck of the ski to the boot) compared to frame touring bindings making them feel stable in chopped up snow. As with the earlier models of Vipec, the Evo 12 heel is sprung allowing it to move back when the ski flexes which makes for a lively, smooth feel and really brings out the best of your skis.

We're very happy to see continued innovation from Fritschi and the Vipec Evo 12 ticks all of the boxes that the previous version did with some great improvements to ease of use and dependability.


We stock the 90mm and 100mm brake widths but if you would like narrower or wider brake options please contact us as we can swap brake widths around as required.
