A super-minimalist binding with big performance at a very reasonable price
The new 2019 Alpinist 12 Touring Binding from Marker is lightweight, powerful and reliable. The super-minimalist design foregoes avant-garde, overly-technical, and potentially-unreliable features, and opts instead to deliver the essentials whilst keeping the ounce-count down to a minimum. Weighing-in at just 335 grams, with innovative functional features, at a category-leading price - the Alpinist is hard to beat.
Great power-transfer and elasticity
The carbon-reinforced design with a 38mm drill pattern offers a remarkably solid performance and amazing power transfer for a binding of this weight, while Active Length Compensation adds extra reliability to the release, meaning you can really push hard with confidence on the descents. The track-mounted heel piece compensates for the change in ski length due to flex, helping to soak up bumps and deliver a much smoother ride than many other super-lightweight bindings.
Resistant to icing and ready to climb
The binding's toe piece features anti-ice pads to prevent clogging with ice, while integrated elastomers make for super-easy stepping in. The heel piece features a climbing aid with 0°, 5° and 9° angle for plenty of support whatever the pitch, and it's super straightforward to switch between hike and ride mode, meaning less faff in the transition.
Sorry, we're unable to ship Marker products outside of Europe, Switzerland Or Norway.
