The Fritschi Vipec Evo 12 bindings are pin touring bindings with DIN adjustable release settings front and back. People have been wary of pin touring bindings in the past, as they offered less security than alpine or 'frame' touring binding. The Vipec Evo removes those worries. The toe pin arms are independent of each other allowing the boot to release sideways in either direction without any upward movement. The Vipec Evo also keeps the pressure on your boot constant by compensating for the flexing of the ski, this gives consistent release pressures.
The Evo has been improved from the 2016/17 Vipec 12 with an easier step in facilitated by a solid stop positioning guide ensuring that the pins line up with the inserts on your boot. Ski mode is engaged by simply stamping the heel pins into the boot. The front pins are locked in walking mode by pulling up the front lever. To change from ski to walk at the rear you depress a lever which draws the heel piece rearward, retracting the pins out of the boot diamond. This system allows you to change from walk to ski without removing the toe of your boot from the binding. The Vipec Evo has 2 flip over heel height adjusters giving the standard low, med and high heel lift positions.
The Vipec Evo is aimed at skiers who tour as much or maybe more than they use the lifts but want a single ski set up, it's also the ideal binding for anyone who wants a binding with a DIN at both the front and rear for increased safety. DIN settings are 5 to 12 which suits all except the lightest of skiers. A great all rounder.
Vipec Evo bindings come complete with brakes (80, 90, 100, 110 or 120mm). You'll need to select which size you want before adding them to your basket. The smallest that will fit your ski is best. The wider 110 and 120mm brakes cost a little extra.
They have 2 coloured plastic pieces which can be customised to add your choice of colour to your binding. As standard the Vipec Evo are supplied with a dark grey plastic inserts (not the blue shown in the image above).
