Summary

Easily adjustable for the way up, and bomb proof on the way down. Haven't ridden a better binding for touring.

Pros

  • durability
  • adjustability

Cons

  • heavy
  • 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.
