Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Head Kore - Alpine soles

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I recently got some Head Kore freeride boots fitted and purchased and I am now entering the murky world of boots/binding compatibility. My downhill skis currently have Look Pivot 12 bindings, which are switchable between an Alpine and Walk To Ride mode. The Head Kores are Grip Walk.

I have seen mentioned a few places, though, that one can purchase inserts or replaceable soles for the Kore that makes them Alpine compatible. I can't find anywhere information about where or how I could purchase such things, would anybody know where?

For reference, here are a few places that mention these optional inserts/soles:

https://www.backcountryuk.com/head-kore-1-65891-p.asp
https://blisterreview.com/ski-boot-reviews/2018-2019-head-kore-1

On Head's own website I can't see any mention of it.

You're better off traction wise with a GW sole. Look are doing replacement GW AFD's as spare parts for the Pivots for 19/20. I have some on order which are due in the Autumn.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Yep. There's two versions, one for the P18's and another for the P12/14's.
