The Marker Duke PT 16 premieres an all-new binding design that's compatible with ski boots for backcountry touring and resort riding. It has the look and feel of a hardcore freeride binding, but part of the toe piece removes to reveal tech pins for backcountry boots. The detachable toe piece is compatible with alpine ski boots, and it automatically locks onto the binding with four points, including the two tech pins. Both the toe piece and heel offer a 16 DIN for a solid performance in and out of the resort. The burly heel locks back in touring mode, and there's a single heel riser to assist on steep skin tracks. Marker made the binding with magnesium for long-lasting durability, and there's an anti-ice rail to help you get ice off your boots.
