About Marker Duke 16 EPF Ski Bindings 2016
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. We have this available in in small and large sizes.
Triple Pivot Elite Toe
The toe construction with DIN/ISO up to Z 18 (Team model) allows for impressive retention when freeriding. The spring in the toe is inserted horizontally and with a sole plate inclined by 5° it provides the highest energy absorption so as to reduce the risk of early release. The large supporting surface optimizes the power transmission and allows for great stresses and strains. In relation to their weight, toes with this technology therefore achieve a never-seen-before performance.
AFD Stainless Steel
All MARKER bindings are equipped with a moveable AFD (anti friction device) leading to a highly precise release almost entirely unhindered by dirt, snow and ice! Individual adjustment of the AFD to the area of application ensures perfect functionality - from racing, for children’s bindings or on ski tours.
Inter Pivot Heel
The stunning heel construction delivers superior holding power for free riding, featuring DIN/ISO 6-16. The Inter Pivot Heel directs the power forces in the angle of elasticity improving the holding power and reducing pre-releases.
Magnesium is THE lightest and most robust metal construction material making it perfect for our high-end products. This makes you well equipped for a faster run and the most radical lines!
EPF- Extended Power Frame
The power booster. The frame delivers breath taking performance and amazing power transfer in every condition.
Power Width Design
Designed with low level stand height for maximum power transmission. It’s the shortest from of all the hiking models in the market, yet featuring a 10mm wider interface than the traditional ‘racing’ binding. Connecting brackets are strategically placed in the power transfer areas for immediate edge control.
The uphill hiking mode integrated in the Duke binding features easy adjustment from ride to hike. The hiking aid offers a 7 degree and 13 degree position. In ski mode the BCT lever is protected from unwanted releases. A 40mm backward movement of the binding in BC mode results in a better balanced swing weight and easier kick turns.
The titanium climbing aid offers two positions with 7 degree and 13 degree which can easily be accesed with the ski pole, even in a unstable standing position. Integrated elastomer padding dampen the impact reducing the irritating traditional ‘clack’ and allow more comfortable hiking.
Our fibre-Reinforced frame base plate provides impressive riding stability and is yet very light due to the gas injected hollow construction
