The King is in the building, and if you play your cards right it could be under your feet on your home mountain soon. The Marker Kingpin 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings finally address the problem of limited elasticity that has plagued tech bindings for years by substituting a pivoting cam-action, spring actuated heel for the traditional dual pin setup, and the results are spectacular. Toe retention is also beefed up with the addition of a third row of springs (traditional tech binding toes use 2). Fully ISO 13992 compliant (Marker has the certificate to prove it), the new Kingpin is the binding freeride touring skiers have been asking for - light enough for long days and big vertical, yet with the reliable performance of a solid alpine binding. Get the Marker Kingpin now and rise to the top of your backcountry fiefdom in one fell swoop.
