What is AFD?

  • 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 is a set of LOOK Pivot 18 with CAST Freetour Upgrade Kit installed.

Although not yet well-known here in Japan, CAST Freetour is highly regarded as the "ultimate tech binding system" in the United States, Canada, and European countries.

In addition to the updated Freetour 2.0 Pivot 18 released from 2024 FW, the fact remains that this Freetour 1.0 Pivot 18 FORZA 3.0 is a touring binding that will give you the best riding feel if installed correctly.

Freetour 2.0 Pivot 18 is only available in CAST Purple color, but if you like the coloring of Pivot 18 FORZA 3.0, choose Freetour 1.0 Pivot 18 FORZA 3.0 with the help of a reliable installer.

The LOOK Pivot is an alpine ski binding consisting of a durable aluminum toe piece and a turntable heel piece. The most reliable binding available, with high boot-to-ski response, instant power transfer and precise ski control, and safe hold and release even in aggressive skis.

The LOOK Pivot 15 or 18 toe piece is modified to use CAST's patented quick-release mechanism and swapped out for an ultra-lightweight Tech Tour toe when hiking. CAST Freetour is the world's first tech binding system with all the reliability and safety of an alpine binding.

What's more, by purchasing an additional Freetour Second Ski Kit (and LOOK Pivot Spare Brake if your board width is different), you can use it on other boards by simply tightening 4 screws.

Points to note when purchasing CAST Freetour

  • The CAST Freetour uses the same hole pattern as the LOOK Pivot 15 / 18, plus two new holes for the brake lock. LOOK Pivot 15 / 18 holes must be accurately positioned using a gauge or template, and the holes must be drilled using the correct drill. A brake lock template is included in the kit. If you would like us to install it for you, please either bring the board and the boots you are using to our location in Obihiro, Hokkaido, or have them shipped to us. From April to September, the product will be installed approximately one week after arrival, and from October to March, approximately two weeks after arrival, and then returned to the customer. The installation fee will be ¥6,600 (tax included), and if the board is already used with a different binding, there will be a small additional fee for filling holes and adjusting unevenness. The customer will be responsible for the round-trip shipping costs. If you have any questions or concerns regarding installation, please contact us. If you would like us to install it for you, please add the CAST Freetour installation fee to your cart and purchase at the same time.
  • The brake width should match the center width of the board you wish to install. There are 3 types: 95mm / 115mm / 130mm, so please select 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.
