What is AFD?

You need to choose from the following three types of AFD. Please check the sole specifications of the boots you are using. If you are unsure which to choose, please contact us.

  • GripWalk compatible: Compliant with GripWalk standards.
  • WTR: Touring boots with normal walk mode or meets the ISO 9523 Touring boot standard.
  • ISO 5355 Alpine sole: Fits alpine soles that meet the ISO 5355 standard.


This set includes a LOOK Pivot 15 and a CAST Freetour Upgrade Kit.

Although it is not yet well known here in Japan, CAST Freetour has earned a very high reputation in the United States, Canada and Europe as the "ultimate tech binding system."

Although the updated Freetour 2.0 Pivot 15 will be released in FW 2024, the Freetour 1.0 Pivot 15 remains a touring binding that provides the best riding feel if installed correctly.

While the Freetour 2.0 Pivot 15 is only available in CAST Purple, if you like the variety of Pivot 15 colors, choose the Freetour 1.0 Pivot 15 with the help of a reliable installer.

The LOOK Pivot is an alpine ski binding with a durable aluminum toe piece and turntable heel piece that provides instantaneous power transmission and precise ski control with a highly responsive boot-to-ski, as well as secure retention and release for aggressive skiing, making it the most reliable binding available.

By modifying the LOOK Pivot 15 or 18 toe piece with CAST's patented quick release mechanism and replacing it with an ultra-lightweight tech-tour toe for uphill climbs, the CAST Freetour is the world's first tech binding system with all the reliability and security of an alpine binding.

What's more, by purchasing the Freetour Second Ski Kit (and a LOOK Pivot spare brake if your ski width is different), you can use it with other skis by simply tightening four screws.

Important points to note when purchasing CAST Freetour

  • The CAST Freetour is installed with the same hole pattern as the LOOK Pivot 15 / 18, and two new holes for the brake lock. The holes for the LOOK Pivot 15 / 18 must be accurately positioned using a gauge or template, and the holes must be drilled with the correct drill. The brake lock template is included in the kit. If you would like us to install it for you, please bring your skis and boots to our location in Obihiro, Hokkaido, or send them to us. We will install the skis and boots within about one week of arrival from April to September, and within two weeks of arrival from October to March, and return them to you. The installation fee is ¥6,600 (tax included), and for skis that have already been installed with a different binding, there will be a small additional labor fee for filling holes and adjusting unevenness. The round-trip shipping fee when sending the skis will be borne by the customer. If you have any questions or inquiries regarding installation, please contact us. If you would like us to install the skis for you, please add the CAST Freetour installation fee to your cart and purchase it at the same time.
  • The brake width will be adjusted to the center width of the board you wish to install it on. There are three types: 95mm, 115mm, and 130mm, so please choose the one you want when purchasing.

Notes on using CAST Freetour 1.0

  • Carry either the CAST Freetour Tech toe or the LOOK PIVOT 15/18 two-piece by making sure to store it securely in your backpack when not in use.
  • To remove the toe piece, slide off the black quick release on both the toe base and CAST Freetour Tech toe. Also, if there is snow on it, please remove it with a brush before putting it on.
  • When installing the toe piece, just push it in and make sure it clicks into place.
    *CAST Freetour Tech If the toe does not lock, the leaf spring next to the spring may be interfering with the front screw. In that case, bend the leaf spring slightly with pliers, or use a hard object such as the tip of a stock to push it into the spring from the front.
  • When using in walk mode, raise the Tech toe lever towards you and lock it. When doing so, be careful not to raise the lever too much and make it stick. 2-3 notches are usually sufficient.
  • Please lock the brakes when using in walk mode. Raise the brake lock and engage it with your finger, or just depress it.
  • When climbing a slope in walk mode, raise the bail according to the slope for support. You can get 8° of assistance with short bails and 12.5° with long bails.
  • To release the brake lock, grasp the tip of the brake and push it inside the board, or turn the turntable on the heel piece to release it. Make sure to push the brake lock forward (toward the nose of the ski) to lock the bail.
