Earn your big mountain turns in the light and powerful Marker Duke EPF Alpine Touring Binding. With backcountry Climbing Aid technology, you can set the Duke to flat, 7 degree, or 13 degree positions easily with your ski pole, while integrated elastomer padding dampens impact, to reduce those annoying clacking noises. A 6-16 DIN range allows you to bomb the mountain and huck cliffs without fear of kicking a ski when you need it most. A widened platform featuring Power Width Design and a 28% larger EPF Extended Power Frame give supremely smooth transmission of power from boot to ski, even on those fatty boards that have a love affair with powder. A Triple Pivot Elite toe, Inter Pivot heel, and stainless steel gliding AFD all further enhance power transfer while providing optimal energy absorption to reduce the risk of pre-releasing. This hard-charging monster of a binding has to be super heavy, right' Wrong. Magnesium parts and a Hollow Tech fiber-reinforced frame provides impressive stability and strength with minimal weight.
Tackle your ascents with more force and power than ever before with Marker's Duke 16 EPF Ski Binding that also offers plenty of security on the way back down. Built on a chassis that's 28% wider than previous models, these beefy bindings moved the screw pattern 10mm out to accommodate today's fat skis for unbelievable power transmission. Designed for skis 89mm and wider, this binding gives you serious control provided by the Triple Pivot Elite toe, Inter Pivot heel, and Power Width design while the low stack height provides a responsive feel. Climbing aid offers three positions that are accessible by poles - flat, 7 degrees, and 13 degrees.

The possibilities are endless with the Marker Duke EPF randonee bindings. The Dukes are built to handle high-speed sidecountry adventures with cliff jumps and backcountry bumps. Extended Power Frame (EPF) design is 28% wider than the previous version of the Duke to increase power transmission to your fat powder skis. You won't prerelease in these burly bindings-DIN 6 - 16 adjustment lets hard-charging skiers stomp huge landings and hit mach speeds. Switch between downhill and touring mode using the levers located under your boots; lever position eliminates the chance of accidentally switching to touring mode while skiing. When you switch to touring mode, the whole binding interface moves back 4cm for better balance while climbing and doing kick turns. Climbing heel design offers 3 positions-flat, 7deg and 13deg; positions can be easily adjusted using a ski pole. Gliding antifriction devices at the toes of the bindings are height adjustable to accommodate randonee and alpine boots. Low 36mm stand height creates a solid and secure connection to the ski. Included 110mm brakes fit wide skis and effectively stop runaway skis; brakes can be easily removed if desired. Mounting configuration of the Marker Duke EPF randonee bindings requires a 89mm minimum ski width. Small fits boot sole lengths from 265mm - 325mm.
