The Freetour is an aftermarket upgrade kit that adds touring capabilities to the Look® Pivot™ 15 or 18 bindings. These bindings provide a release value range of either 6-15 or 8-18. Installing the kit requires swapping out the lower portion of the alpine toe pieces. We have tutorial video of how to do this on our tutorial page.
The FREETOUR is available with any combination of AFDs to fit all three major boot norms. ALPINE, WTR, and GripWalk.
The Alpine AFDs will fit all alpine boots that meet ISO 5355, this includes boots that have CAST’s tech conversion. WTR AFDs will fit Walk to Ride boots, they are also sized to accommodate boots that meet ISO 9523 touring boot standard. However, the release and retention characteristics of these boots will be affected by the boot’s sole material and tread pattern. AFDs compatible with GripWalk will fit all boots with GripWalk soles. Due to the limited overlap between Alpine and GripWalk geometry, we chose to design these AFDS to create maximum energy transfer and more consistent function specifically for the GripWalk norm, as a result, they will not work with Alpine boots.
It is very likely we can add tech inserts to your alpine boots. We can do any boot with a solid sole or removable alpine lifter. We cannot do boots where the entire toe lug is swappable or full vibram touring norm 9523 soles. The easiest way to insure that we can do your boots is to send us an email with the boot model and a photo of the sole.
The Freetour Kit uses the same hole pattern as the Look® Pivot™ 15 or 18 bindings. You will have to add two additional holes in front of the heel to mount the heel brake retainer block.

The FreeTour Upgrade Kit uses the same holes as the Look® Pivot™ ski binding. If your skis are already mounted with a Look® Pivot™ Binding, this is not an issue. Simply modify your Pivot™ 15 or 18 binding with the FreeTour Upgrade Kit and then use the existing holes. Two additional holes will need to be drilled for the brake retainer.
