On Look’s shop employee site….currently a non existent selection of Pivot18’s… only a pair of black skinnies? Not much in P15 choices either?

Not much in stock at beginning of the year? Supply issues still?

Look also has the SPX 10 with a DIN range of 3-10, which works great for kids and lighter adults requiring a higher coolness factor.

Not sure how I forgot that one, great binding. Added.

I just discovered that the SPX 10 with a 73mm brake is incompatible with the other SPX brakes. I suspect this is the case for the other bindings that offer a 73mm variant.
