The wide design of the Duke EPF Randonee Bindings provides excellent power transmission to your fat skis while the DIN 6 - 16 release settings let you charge down steep lines without worry.
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.
The Duke features Marker's Extended Power Frame chassis, 28% wider than the original. For the big mountain freeskier who wants an easy climbing function combined with the ultimate in security and performance for coming down the mountain. DIN Range: 6 - 16 Recom.
