Touring Features
CLIMBING AID

The titanium climbing aid offers two positions with 7° and 13° which can easily be accessed with the ski pole, even in an unstable standing position. Integrated elastomer paddings dampen the impact reducing the irritating traditional “clack” and allow more comfortable hiking.

Touring Features
BACKCOUNTRY TECHNOLOGY

The uphill hiking mode integrated in the Duke binding features easy adjustment from ride to hike. The hiking aid offers a 7° and 13° position. In ski mode the BCT lever is protected from unwanted releases. A 40 mm backward movement of the binding in BC mode results in a better balanced swing weight and easier kick turns.

Toe Technology
TRIPLE PIVOT ELITE TOE

The toe construction with DIN/ISO up to Z 18 allows for impressive retention when freeriding. The spring in the toe is inserted horizontally and with a sole plate inclined by 5° it provides the highest energy absorption so as to reduce the risk of early release. The large supporting surface optimizes the power transmission and allows for great stresses and strains. In relation to their weight, toes with this technology therefore achieve a never-seen-before performance.

Toe Technology
AFD STAINLESS STEEL

All MARKER bindings are equipped with a moveable AFD (anti friction device) leading to a highly precise release almost entirely unhindered by dirt, snow and ice! Individual adjustment of the AFD to the area of application ensures perfect functionality - from racing, for children’s bindings or on ski tours.

Heel Technology
INTER PIVOT HEEL

The stunning heel construction delivers superior holding power for free riding, featuring DIN/ISO 6-16. The Inter Pivot Heel directs the power forces in the angle of elasticity improving the holding power and reducing pre-releases.

Performance Features
POWER WIDTH DESIGN

Designed with a low, level stand height for maximum power transmission. It‘s the shortest frame of all hiking models in the market, yet featuring a 10 mm wider interface than traditional “racing” bindings. Connecting brackets are strategically placed in the power transfer areas for immediate edge control. Recommended for skis over 76 mm.
