Combine the reliability and power of a 13-DIN alpine binding with the free-heel freedom of an AT binding, and you have the Marker Baron 13 EPF Ski Binding. Built on Marker's Extended Power Frame, the Baron sits on a wide chassis, giving it the ability to drive wide, big mountain boards with authority. To keep them manageable on the ascent, the Barons feature Marker's Hollow Tech frame, which is a gas-injected hollow construction that is light, powerful, and dependable whether you're spinning laps in the resort, or accessing big backcountry lines. The Backcountry Technology allows the binding to be converted from ski to walk mode with the quick flick of a switch, while a three-position climbing aid lets you adjust the heel lifter between three positions to get the right angle for the slope you're climbing.
As the lighter, more nimble cousin to the Duke, the Marker Baron Bindings have earned their stripes as a favorite amongst big mountain, backcountry enthusiasts. New for next season, the Baron EPF features the Extended Power Frame (EPF) previously found only on the Duke. Featuring a 4-13 DIN range, the Baron also gets the Duke's updated Triple Pivot Elite toe and Inter-Pivot heel. AFD Gliding Plate: All Marker bindings are equipped with a moveable AFD (anti friction device), allowing a precise release, unhindered by dirt, snow and ice buildup. The type of AFD is matched to the skier type, ensuring perfect functionality - from racing to junior bindings and even ski touring. Triple Pivot Elite Toe: With a horizontally oriented spring, the Triple Pivot Elite Toe provides the highest energy absorption to reduce the risk of early release. The secure purchase on the boot lug optimizes power transmission and allows for durable, high energy use. The performance to weight ratio of the Triple Pivot toe is truly unmatched in the industry. Inter Pivot Heel: This industry-leading construction delivers superior holding power for all types of freeskiing. Its design focuses power in the direction of the boot sole, increasing elasticity. The overall design focuses on optimum power transmission. Climbing Aid: The titanium climbing aid offers three positions - flat, 7 degree and 13 degree which can easily be accessed with the ski pole. Power Width Design: The original Marker breakthrough for wider freeskiing skis, based on a 76mm platform. Wider connection brackets create better power transmission for all Marker Royal Family and Tour bindings. Backcountry Technology: The integrated climbing lever features a safe, secure transition from ride to hike. The hiking aid offers flat, 7 degree and 13 degree positions. In ski mode, the BCT lever is protected from unwanted releases. For the best power transmission as well as efficient touring capabilities, the Baron EPF Marker ski bindings are a top choice among the best backcountry skiers. Weight: 5.4 lbs (2450 g) - Small; 5.47 lbs (2480 g) - Large. Available Color(s): Black/White/Red
