Marker F12 Tour
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Marker Tour F12 is an AT binding for the skier who wants an all-day touring rig, but still wants great skiing performance. The Tour F12 focuses on light-weight, all-day touring functionality combined with the downhill skiing performance Marker is known for. Special Features: climbing function, 7 & 13 degree integrated climbing aid, removable brake
The addition of the Extended Power Frame (EPF) to the Marker Tour F12 EPF alpine touring binding brings more edging power to a legendary backcountry beast. The platform of power transmits torque more effectively to wider (89 mm or more) modern ski shapes with very little weight gain. Triple Pivot Light toe with AFD stainless steel and Teflon gliding plate EPF wider mounting platform (20% wider) 0-degree, 7-degree, 13-degree climbing aid heights DIN 4-12 Two sizes available, based on boot sole length. Small fits 265 - 325 mm; Large fits 305 - 370 mm
Although the Marker Tour F12 Alpine Touring binding has left its resort-loving brothers and sisters in favor of fresh, backcountry lines, it still bears the crest and bloodline of the Marker Royal Family. For example, its EPF Extended Power Frame is found on the Duke and Baron for crazy-efficient power transmission on fatter skis. And it features the same Backcountry Technology with climbing ability that the Duke and Baron have. The hollow linkage heel, however, sheds weight for a speedy ascent, and the Triple Pivot Light toe has Teflon for reduced wear and also keeps weight at a minimum. This touring binding accommodates alpine and AT boots, so you don't need a full setup designated for both backcountry and in-resort. The Tour F12 has a lower DIN range (4-12) than the burlier Duke and Baron, but it also is lighter-weight. And with its own set of powers just right for most tourers, it's frankly getting tired of the comparison.
