Marker Tour F12 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings (Large) 2011: The innovative Marker Tour F12 Alpine Touring Ski Binding is for the dedicated AT skier. The Marker Tour F12 alpine touring bindings were developed based on a 76mm minimum ski width not built around a historic 63mm ski like conventional bindings. With features such as a new, lighter weight Triple Pivot Compact Toe, weight-saving Hollow Linkage heel components, titanium components, and hollow technology, weight will certainly not be a concern. The Marker Tour F12 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings are lightweight, compact, and easy to step into, while the spring focuses energy directly toward the heel of the boot so nothing will be holding you back from ascending the mountain to make those first descents.
Gas-injected, hollow fiber-reinforced frame base plate for a light weight construction with impressive riding stability
Titanium Climbing Aid offers 7 and 13 degrees of positioning, which can be set easily with a ski pole, even on steep awkward terrain. Integrated elastomer padding dampens the impact for more comfortable hiking
Wide frame construction
Back Country Comfort (BCC) touring mechanism is an ergonomically shaped lever under the boot which allows glove-friendly, comfortable opening and closing, and is positioned under the boot to prevent any unintentional heel releases
Tailor-made Touring Crampon system (Crampons sold separately) Mounting position is directly under arch to maximize pressure for increased climbing capability
Touring brake can be easily removed.
Height-adjustable gliding anti-friction-device
Triple pivot compact toe piece.
Hollow linkage heel
Switching the lever to touring mode moves the whole binding 40 mm backward, allowing a more balanced stepping motion and easier kick turns on steep terrain.

Comments about Marker Tour F12 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings (Large) 2011:
If Marker can engineer the tour binding to switch into touring modes without taking off your ski that would be a huge improvement.
