Combining the low weight and uphill prowess of a tech binding with the safety and confidence of a downhill binding, the Marker Kingpin 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings are still some of the best freeride touring bindings there are. This year, they've borrowed the two spring design from the Alpinist and M-Werks bindings to even further lower the weight and increase toe retention. They ski better than any pin bindings, and they're lighter than any frame or hybrid binding. There's a reason the Kingpin remains a favorite of hard charging backcountry types and working snow professionals everywhere.
Anti-Ice Pads – Elastomer pads under the toe springs help prevent snow and ice buildup.
Carbon Reinforced PinTech Toe – Twin spring, with carbon fiber reinforced material for maximum stiffness and super light weight.
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.
Vertical and Lateral Adjustable Release Function – Vertical and lateral individually adjustable release in the heel for improved release functionality.
XXL Power Transmitter – 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 pads dampen the impact reducing the irritating traditional “clack” and allow more comfortable hiking.
