How the Freetour Works

Tech Freedom. Alpine Performance.

We’ve created the world’s first pin-tech touring system with the full reliability, safety and bomber performance of an alpine binding. CAST’s patented and fully integrated quick-release mechanism allows you go uphill on super-light pin-tech touring toes, and shred down on a full alpine setup in a matter of seconds. The result is a first of its kind, confidence inspiring backcountry experience.

How to get started with the Freetour:

  1. Buy the Cast Freetour Pivot 15 or 18 binding.
    Already have Look Pivot 15s or 18s, buy just the Freetour Upgrade Kit and upgrade your Pivots! In order to use the Freetour, you must have a Look Pivot 15 or 18 binding.
    Select your colors and AFDs. Read more about the AFD options here.
    All Pivot 12 and 14 bindings will NOT work.
  2. Mount 'em up.
    You or your local shop can install your new Cast Freetour Pivot bindings onto your existing skis. You will keep your same drill holes, and it is a relatively simple process. Watch the videos or download the instructions

    Warning: If you are not a properly trained ski technician with the proper tools and a jig, you must have your bindings mounted by an authorized Look® or Cast® dealer.
  3. Shred.
    Congratulations, you’re on the best touring solution in the industry.
    Throw in a Second Ski Kit ($75) while you're at it or learn more about that option here.

    Warning: All bindings must be properly adjusted to the users boot sole length, height, weight, and release preference. The ski/boot/binding system must then be tested with the user's boots in accordance with industry standards before use, to ensure proper function.

Full Alpine Performance and Durability

The Freetour Kit maintains all of the reliability and performance of the most trusted alpine bindings in skiing. Full alpine release and retention characteristics provide unmatched safety for all of your backcountry exploits. CAST designs and produces all of our parts with maximum durability in mind. The kit will hold up to all of the abuses you can put them through for years to come. This kit will not leave you stranded, whether you are milking the last of a lift served powder day or multiple days into a winter camping mission.

Lightweight Tech Touring Efficiency

The use of our super light tech toe at 128 grams reduces touring weight to a minimum. Replace your Freetour Pivot alpine toe with this tech toe and it will reduce your overall weight to just 1000 grams per ski. Using a pin-tech toe piece allows you to have the most efficient skinning stride, has zero lifted weight on the heel, and is super strong. The tech toe allows for fluid kick turns, gliding, and side-hilling. This will help you conserve energy during the approach and on the ascent, save that for the down!

Alpine Binding Conversion

The Freetour is an aftermarket upgrade 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. This is a simple procedure detailed in the tutorial video as well as the mounting instructions.

Alpine, WTR & GripWalk Compatible Anti-Friction Devices

The Freetour is available with any combination of AFDs to fit all three major boot norms.

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.

GripWalk compatible AFDs 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

Auto-Locking Quick Release

The simple and robust locking mechanisms allow for fast transitioning between alpine and touring. Both the tech toe and alpine toe slide on and auto-lock into position. The tech toe has a secondary lock mechanism when stepped into with a boot. This secondary lock creates zero play and reduces stress on the primary lock while touring, increasing hardware longevity. The forward pressure of the alpine binding has the same effect when a boot is engaged in the binding, removing pressure from the primary lock and eliminating play for maximum energy transfer.

Heel Assembly

The Freetour’s compact heel assembly mounts in two holes positioned in front of the heel piece. It includes a brake retainer and two climbing bails. The brake retainer is easily engaged by flipping it from the forward position back over the brake and stepping down on the heel. The climbing bails can be easily activated with a ski pole between flat, 8 degree, or 12.5 degree climbing modes.

Ski Crampon Clip

The tech toes have integrated ski crampon clips allowing for easy installation and removal of ski crampons. The crampon clip is compatible with all Dynafit style ski crampons, these are available in all ski widths on our accessories page. When you are not quite sure what conditions will be like, throw a set in your bag. 

Freetour Upgrade Components

The Freetour kit includes all of the components you will need to add touring capabilities to the Look Pivot 15 and 18 alpine bindings.

● A pair of toe pedestals with integrated quick release.

● A pair of tech touring toes with integrated quick release.

● A pair of brake retainers and 0°, 8°, and 12° climbing aids.

● A pair of toe shims and all of the hardware you will need to mount the kit.

The Freetour kit uses the existing Pivot binding mount holes with two additional holes for our heel assembly located in front of the alpine heel piece. Check out the Freetour Manual for upgrade and mounting instructions.

Warning: Mounting and Testing

All bindings must be properly adjusted to the users boot sole length, height, weight, and release preference. The ski/boot/binding system must then be tested with the user's boots in accordance with industry standards before use, to ensure proper function.

If you are not a properly trained ski technician with the proper tools and a jig, you must have your bindings mounted by an authorized Look® or Cast® dealer.
