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:

      The Marker griffons were a fantastic investment and so affordable for the quality they are listed at, I have used jester demo bindings in the past and marker has really outdone themselves on ski bindings. The lightweight addition to these bindings is great and I know the adjustments won't be to tricky if I need one on the mountain. Really going to enjoy these once the snow starts falling and for what we lack in snow this season I'll probably make up in ski bindings. Thanks again for the fast delivery and expedited service, I will definitely recommend this pair of bindings to any level skier I might stumble across on the mountain so that they can experience the easy maneuverability and snug feeling when they step in these.

              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.

                I have a 3 year old pair on Volkl Mantras and this new set on 4frnt Devastators and love them. The low profile of the mounting point gets my feet as close to the snow (and often ice) as possible which gives me greater control and stability.

                For reference I ski these on 191 and 194 skis and I am 6-8 about 215 lbs. I would recommend these bindings to anyone. The skis I have them mounted on are also pretty solid.

                    Great binding from the Marker line. Best price available at time of purchase, and it's my 3rd pair on my small arsenal of skis. With 2 ACL's and one total knee replacement over the years, I'm very confident with this binding to release when I get in trouble.

                        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.

                        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.

                          I have always loved Marker and with my new skis and 2 blown knees I have been doing alot of research on bindings. I love these. I mean they feel like any other binding of course but they are light and seems to release properlly. Make sure you have someone that really knows how to mount and adjust do it for you with any binding.

                            Great bindings for any level skiers. I am 6'3 200lbs and ski pretty aggressively. Excellent product as expected from Marker.

                              Best binding I've owned

                              I have been using marker bindings for years, this one by far takes the cake for the best one they have constructed. It has very easy entry and exit, but the best part is how durable and tuff this binding is. I throw all I can at my skis and bindings trees, sticks, rails, and jumps this binding does it all. The only downfall I see is it is a heavy binding if you are looking for lightweight this isn't it, but it's ideal for the everything skier like myself.

                                    When I grabbed my skis on my way out of Evo I immediately noticed my old pocket rockets were noticeably lighter with the new Griffons mounted. When I skied them in deep heavy snow I definitely put them to the test. I am confident to ski fast in difficult terrain with these bindings.

                                      These Marker Griffon bindings are great. I debated paying the extra money for the 2016 model but couldn't find a reason to pay the extra.

                                      The ski beautifully. They feel solid when I step in, and I haven't experienced any issues with release.

                                        I just mounted these bindings on my new 2015 Volkl Mantras. The combo is awesome. The best part about it is they were discounted because they are last years model. Double bonus!

                                                If there was any downfall it was the mount I wish it was machined Aluminum Stainless or Ti, instead of injected molded high end plastic however hammered them hard and no faults and I'm 6'6" 280. Maybe they had Glock make the plastic base mount. HA!! Also if you are going to have someone mount these go to your old school shop. I was in Bend, OR and all I kept getting was "I don't have the jig"; "if you are a craftsman the binding is the jig kid!". So just do it yourself or take them to a shop with a lightly grey bearded homie who knows who Wu Tang is.

                                                    Upon release in heavy snow, the snow sticks in the toe piece making reentry more of a chore than normal. Otherwise they seem fine.
