The Marker Kingpin is a legendary binding, combining uphill ease with downhill performance like no other before it had. The Marker Kingpin 10 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings are a lighter, lower DIN version of the flagship 13's, providing all of that smooth backcountry confidence to lighter or less aggressive riders. This year's model features a redesigned toepiece that makes step-in easier than ever, along with the tried and true alpine style heelpiece that provides the Kingpin with the same power transfer and reliable release characteristics you expect out of your inbounds bindings. Whether you're looking to ride hard in the backcountry, or want a safer and more seamless transition from your resort setup, the Kingpin 10 is an excellent option.
ISI Toe Piece – The new "Intuitive Step In" tech toepiece features a rubber stop pad and a wider step-in platform with easier step-in than previous models.
Anti Ice Pads – Anti Ice Pads in the base of toe to prevent icing in critical areas.
Kingpin Heel – The revolutionary heel construction for the Pin Technology bindings features wide sole contact points to deliver the kind of direct, lossless power transfer more frequently seen in alpine bindings. The Kingpin heel is also many times safer than traditional Pin Technology bindings.
XXL Power Transmitters – Extra large power transmitters in the heel with reduced weight for minimum friction and maximum centering for the lateral movement of the heel.
Kingpin Climbing Aids – The climbing aid offers two positions with 7° and 13° which can easily be accessed with the ski pole, even in an unstable standing position. Integrated elastomer paddings dampen the impact reducing the irritating traditional “clack” and allow more comfortable hiking.
Vertical and Lateral Adjustable Release Function – Vertical and lateral individually adjustable release in the heel for improved release functionality.
