Product Info

Marker Tour F12 (Large) Alpine Touring Bindings (110mm Brakes) 2012: What goes up must come down. At Marker, it's all about having the descent of a lifetime. The Marker Tour F12 Alpine Touring Bindings are AT bindings for the skier who wants an all-day touring rig, but still wants great skiing performance. The Tour F12’s focus is on light-weight, all-day touring functionality combined with the downhill skiing performance Marker is known for.

Product Details

Recommended Use

The Marker Tour F12 is designed for the skier who spends the majority of time touring but still wants a reliable binding for skiing on resort.

Additional Features

Hollow technology base plate provides impressive stability combined with very lightweight gas-injected construction

Back Country Comfort touring mechanism allows for glove-friendly, comfortable opening and closing. Switching the lever to touring mode moves the whole binding 40mm backward for a balanced stepping motion and easier kick turns on steep terrain.

Titanium climbing aid with 7° & 13° positions can easily be accessed with ski pole. Integrated elastomer padding dampens the impact and noise.

Removable brake can be swapped with heel spacer and safety straps.

Height adjustable, gliding AFD for alpine/AT

36mm stand height above ski

No-pull-out screws

Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15mm wider.

Construction

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 Compact toe features a cross-axis toe spring.

Comfort 2 heel is a hollow linkage heel with aluminum axle that saves weight and maximizes torsional stiffness.

    Comments about Marker Tour F12 (Large) Alpine Touring Bindings (110mm Brakes) 2012:

    I used these 5 days so far this season and they have performed admirably. They are easy to pop in and out of and anytime I ejected from them it was definitley deserved. Have not had a chance to use these on the uphill yet but they are nice and light, but still have strength to stomp the mountain.

    Comments about Marker Tour F12 (Large) Alpine Touring Bindings (110mm Brakes) 2012:

    These bindings are probably the best average money can buy. They are extremely versatile, easily adjustable and most important they really do the job!! The very first time I'd used them I was mentally prepared to have a lot of trouble though the bindings on the run worked smoothly even in depth snow and steep conditions which are the critical moments for a dual-use binding. Highly advisable for those that don't belong to the randonee-backcountry orthodoxy but rather would like to have the chance to turn regular Alpine skiing into fun backcountry for a couple of hours.

      I like the toe release, which the Dynafit doesn't have. Almost as lite weight.

      Comments about Marker Tour F12 (Large) Alpine Touring Bindings (110mm Brakes) 2012:

      Great bang for the buck and a solid feel underfoot that is missing from other touring bindings. Could be lighter but then again it may not feel as solid. Some learning to be done with a new system but very intuitive and with a low fiddle factor. Need to pay attention to clearing snow in your transitions (true of all touring bindings). Have skied them extensively in area and backcountry. Work with alpine and backcountry boots. Hard to give something a 5 out of 5 but this is close.

        Hope to use it backcountry next season. It's a light but well made binding that should last for quite a while.

        Comments about Marker Tour F12 (Large) Alpine Touring Bindings (110mm Brakes) 2012:

        Nice bindings - a lot of plastic, but lightweight. I'm not sure I'd use them for dedicated resort setup - for the occasional side foray. I'd use the Barron or Dukes for that. Well made.

          Comments about Marker Tour F12 (Large) Alpine Touring Bindings (110mm Brakes) 2012:

          Picked up a pair of F12s in Fall 2011. Great downhill performance. However, the tracks tend to ice up when you've been in tour mode, and it became routine to scrape ice out of the connecting tracks before transitioning to downhill mode. Not that I am counting seconds during the transition, but I am always the last guy trying to hack ice out of his binding while everyone is eager to drop. Final straw came this last week when I kept popping out of the binding unexpectedly. I noticed a significant amout of freeplay in the toe-binding and tried adjusting the binding at home, but the problem persisted. Took everything into the shop, they noticed the freeplay and said "Yup...these are going back to the factory" Defective toe bindings on both left and right bindings. Thanks, Marker...6-8 weeks without skis while I wait for shop credit or replacements. I am hoping for shop credit.

            Went skiing on these bindings for the first time last weekend at a resort. They felt just like downhill bindings. Haven't tried the AT mode yet.

              Great AT bindings with strong downhill performance. Taking your boot out to transition is a bit of a pain in deep powder. Everything else gets an A in my book.
