The Duke has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best alpine touring bindings for 2020.
Historic Range: $178.93-$495.00
Reviewers Paid: $700.00
2600 gr / 2630 gr (110 brake)
Easily adjustable for the way up, and bomb proof on the way down. Haven't ridden a better binding for touring.
- ice build up
Very happy with my Marker Dukes.
Always had issues with early release on the lower din bindings, with the Dukes I am confident my skis are staying on!
The only issue is with closing the binding into riding mode on the switch over, can be a pain with ice build up in the tracks.
Would reccomend these to any larger, charging backcountry skier who can haul up the weight for the downhill benefit.
