Product Info

The Marker Griffon Ski Bindings are our top selling performance binding year after year. The reasons are obvious - excellent energy transmission, light weight compared to other bindings in its class, and solid durability have made the Griffon a fan favorite that finds its way onto more freeride skis than any other 12 to 14 DIN clamp. Marker's gliding AFD (anti-friction device) ensures consistent release with all types of ISO 5355 alpine soles and is less dependent on cleanliness or condition than stationary AFD's. The Inter Pivot Heel is time tested and offers excellent vertical elasticity as well as reliable release when you really need it. Step into the Griffon this season and find your own sweet spot.

Product Details

Toe Piece

AFD Gliding PlateAll Marker bindings (except the Jester Pro) are equipped with a moveable AFD (anti friction device), allowing a precise release, unhindered by dirt, snow and ice buildup. The type of AFT is matched to the skier type, ensuring perfect functionality from racing to junior and even alpine touring.

Triple Pivot Elite Toe PieceWith a horizontally oriented spring, it provides the highest energy absorption to reduce the risk of early release. The secure purchase on the boot lug optimizes power transmission and allows for durable, high energy use. The performance to weight ratio of the Triple Pivot toe is truly unmatched in the industry.

Heel Piece

Inter Pivot HeelThis industry-leading construction delivers superior holding power for all types of freeskiing. Its design focuses power in the direction of the boot sole, increasing elasticity. The overall design creates optimum power transmission.

Ski Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

These are solid, well made bindings that don't pre-release and seem to provide a good boot ski interface. However, getting into these bindings in deep snow is a real problem. Stepping down into the heel takes a lot of force - which is difficult in soft snow. Snow also builds up in the toe piece, making it even harder to step in. I used these bindings on a heli-ski trip and had a lot of difficulty getting into them each time we got dropped off in deep snow. I am swapping them out for my trusty Salomons next year. If you don't ever expect to have to put them on in deep snow, no worries. But if you do, beware.

    Comments about Marker Griffon Ski Bindings 2015:

    Install was straight forward with no surprises. After the first few days in the park, for the 13/14 season, it's safe to say these bindings will stand up to a beating. Easy to step into, and haven't experienced a pre-release even on buttery takeoffs.

    Great binding and easy to install. I always thought Marker was a bad brand due to poor construction but this binding is great. One down side is the weight. Little heavier than most bindings I have used.

            This is a great binding I love it it's super responsive but the box it came in there were just parts thrown everywhere nothing wrapped in bags it looked like someone just dumped all the pieces in there and slammed the box shut. Not the packaging I would expect when I'm paying 10 dollars for shipping and handling what a joke.

                                              Got these mounted on my Gotama's and so far so good. I've only skied on them a couple of times so I can't give a lengthy review but I'm happy with them. They seem to be built well and are fairly light weight for the DIN setting. Although like one reviewer mentioned, they are slightly harder to step into than other bindings. Haven't skied them in deep powder so I can't comment on that but on the hard pack chowder I feel like I have great power transmission to my skis. They interface well.

                                                      I use these bindings on my Nordica Nemesis skis for on-mountain skiing at Vail and Beaver Creek in all kinds of conditions. They perform exactly as promised and have the expected Marker quality and design.

                                                        So far so good. Only used 1 time this season but I have high hopes that this binding is everything that it is marketed to be.

This was after only about 20 trips with these bindings. I would never purchase these again, given the price tag and cheap materials used.

I'm a park skier who likes to shred the steep hill when I make the hour long trip to the mountains. These bindings have far outlasted all my skis and I've never had a single issue.
