Duke (Small) Ski Bindings (110mm Brakes) 2012: For the big mountain freeskier who wants an easy climbing function combined with the ultimate in security and performance for coming down the mountain, the Marker
Duke Ski Bindings are the only way to go. The BCT/Ski lever combined with a higher DIN and durable metal construction lets the Duke perform equally as an AT touring binding and high-end downhill binding.
Patented BCT Back Country Technology uphill hiking mode
BCT/Ski lever protected under foot to prevent inadvertent opening in ski mode.
The unique mobility feature moves the skier's center of mass 40mm backward in BC mode - resulting in a better balanced ski swing weight and easier kick-turns.
New hiking aid with 7° & 13° positions
Height adjustable, gliding AFD for alpine/AT
Lowest stand height of all “frame” AT models with 36mm stand height above ski
The Marker Duke is designed for heavier weight or more aggressive skiers who spend a lot of time on resort but take any opportunity to head into the sidecountry and occasionally go for a full-on backcountry tour.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15mm wider.
Power-Width-Design gives freeskiing bindings the ultimate power transmission for today's wide skis with the shortest frame of all hiking models in the market, 10 mm wider interface than traditional bindings (not built around the historic 63 mm SL ski like conventional bindings), and connection brackets extend upward on the outside for the ultimate power transmission.
Triple-Pivot Elite toe with a 5° sole holder angle, high energy absorption to prevent pre-release with 32mm elasticity, and increased boot lug contact.
Inter-Pivot heel design focuses power in direction of boot sole and elasticity direction for superior holding power and energy transfer with 34 mm elasticity.
Magnesium components for extra durability
