Simpler to use than the original version, the new Vipec 12 builds on the success of the first backcountry binding to combine low weight of a tech binding with DIN safety release of an alpine binding.
Built for rugged ski mountaineering ascents and bomber freeride descents, the Fritschi Diamir Vipec 12 Binding is an evolution of the world's first alpine touring binding to combine the lightweight pin system of a tech binding with the standardized safety release capabilities of an alpine binding. The result is a binding that provides both lightweight touring functionality and maximum alpine-style power transmission. The Vipec easily switches between walk and ski modes without the need to step out of the binding, and its toe piece features micro-adjustable width wings to accommodate the wide variety of tech insert styles on the market.A favorite of avalanche professionals, the Vipec features a two-stage heel riser, allowing for three different easily adjustable configurations depending on the grade of terrain. This binding's pre-defined safety release capabilities utilize a gliding heel piece with dynamic travel for consistent contact pressure and reliable release. Lateral, frontal, and defined release capable, the Vipec is built to be powerfully stable while still providing a safe ride.
