For unparalleled peace of mind and retention for backcountry freeriding, the Marker
Duke EPF Ski Binding is the go-to. The Marker
Duke has continued to dominate the backcountry, sidecountry, and inbounds; basically everywhere you can take a ski! With a wide Extended Power Frame chassis and a max DIN of 16, the Duke is ready to drive the biggest and burliest skis without coming up short. If you can only have one pair of skis or want a rugged binding to crush backcountry and sidecountry hucks, grab the Duke. The sliding AFD can accommodate both Alpine and AT lugged boots, so there's no need to worry about compatibility. The Marker
Duke EPF Large Ski Bindings accommodate 305-365mm boot sole lengths.
Triple Pivot Elite Toe - With a horizontally oriented spring, the Triple Pivot Elite Toe 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.
Gliding AFD - All Marker bindings are equipped with a moveable AFD (anti friction device), allowing a precise release, unhindered by dirt, snow, and ice buildup.
Inter Pivot Heel - Superior holding power for all types of freeskiing. The design focuses power in the direction of the boot sole, increasing elasticity. The overall design creates optimum power transmission.
0˚ / 7˚ / 13˚ Climbing Aid - Three climbing positions - 0˚, 7˚, and 13˚ which can be easily accessed with the ski pole, even in an unstable standing position.
Backcountry Technology - Integrated climbing lever features a safe, secure transition from ride to hike. In ski mode the BCT lever is underfoot and protected from unwanted releases.
Extended Power Frame (EPF) - Bigger, better, and 28% wider. The screw pattern is 10mm wider than before, providing incredible power transmission. Extended Power Frame is designed for skis 89mm and wider.
Hollow Tech - Fiber-reinforced frame provides impressive stability and is yet very light, thanks to a hollow, gas injected construction.
Power Width Design - The original Marker breakthrough for wider freeskiing skis, based on a 76mm platform. Wider connection brackets create better power transmission for all Marker Royal Family and Tour F10 bindings.
Magnesium Parts - Magnesium's light weight and high strength make it perfect for high-end bindings.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
Alpine / AT Compatible - Compatible with Alpine (ISO 5355) and AT (ISO 9523) soled boots
