The Diamir Vipec 12 bindings are equipped with an exclusive defined lateral release in the front unit. The active release system holds the boot in place, similar to Alpine bindings. Unlike the systems that only clamp the boot in, the Diamir Vipec 12 is adjustable to different types of ski boots with precision and custom-fit. As a result, customers are not limited in their choice of ski boots.
The Diamir Vipec 12 that was introduced in early January 2014 is adjusted to the ski boot by means of an adjustable pin. If the pin was not properly fastened during the adjustment process, it was able to loosen while going uphill. As a quick response to the first of such cases, the binding was pre-set at the factory to fit most ski boots and to ensure that the adjustable pin is properly fastened. The retailers were informed and appropriately instructed even before the end of January 2014. A retailer should be contacted for any questions that may arise.
Model 2014/15 is also delivered with a presetting of the distance between the front-pins and a new Color Clip “M” fitting most ski boots. The optimized front pin unit simplifies the adjustment of the system and the laterally integrated centering jaws increase the comfort level.
The Vipec 12 offers real superior performance at a mere 490 grams
