2023 Marker Alpinist 12 Brake Bindings



The ultra-light Alpinist pin binding (270 g without brake) offers everything experienced touring skiers need. Its construction allows active length compensation without affecting the ski’s flex. A very stiff, ISI front makes the binding easier to step into, as a wide footprint with integrated stop automatically positions and aligns your boot. Kinematically optimised pin levers then allow the pins to snap shut with just a gentle push. The heel features 0°, 5° and 9° climbing aids and can be switched quickly and easily from ascent to descent mode. A 38 mm wide hole pattern transfers power brilliantly to the edges, which means control and great steering.
