    Can anyone school me on 'Look Rockerace' bindings?

    Sounds like they're meant to be mounted on a plate, not directly binding to ski?

    yes, there is no jig available, they go on the race plate equipped skis

    ^ For sure, they're basically the new & improved version of the OG Pivot.

    They are a new version of the SPX / PX but are designed for the R20/R21 Race Plates.

    You can free mount as I have on my piste skis, with a bit of careful measurement and combinations of a few templates (I print my templates on OHP acetate) I used the pivot 18 toe template and the SPX heal template to give me a guideline for heal. I covered the target area in frog tape and measure the binding and hole pattern across each axis.

    You can mount them directly to the ski. I've mounted a couple this way. I made my own template.
    The heel pattern is different than regular SPX heel as the rearmost screws are closer to the front (not as far back as they are on a SPX) so you probably get a bit more of a flex in the ski a la Pivot, w convenience of a step in.

    clarifying, yes as mentioned you can mount it flat to a ski to get almost Pivot like performance.
    But you could cut out the middleman and just mount pivots as it should be.

    It was worth it as I got a pair of 15's for free, brand new off a pal who races skier cross as she didn't like the colour and wanted the blue versions.

    Sadly I'm in Scotland, shipping might be a but much but I'd always trade for more pivots, theres a few sets in the pivot box but one more can't hurt.

    Can someone kindly measure the hole spacing on the Rockerace heel? Want to check for potential mounting conflicts before pulling the trigger. Thnx

    So is this something new or did OP mean “rockerflex” vs rockerace.?

    The former needs an f21 race plate and has been around for about 4-5 years. It does have the rearmost 2 screws closer to front forming a visually similar square rear mounting pattern to a pivot heal.

    The rockerflex is essentially the same as the axial 2 but everything on the heal piece behind the last two screws is elevated from the skis surface reducing effective binding contact length on the ski which theoretically reduces the flat spot the binding creates in the arc of a fully flexed ski,

    If anybody is interested I have a mint (less than 10 days) white (look version) spx 15 pair for sale. They have 85mm brakes and the solid one piece metal toe piece. I need $175 CAD net for the pair. Them and I are in Toronto.

    With respect to spacing I can measure once I’m home later tonight.
