Product Info

The Marker Alpinist 12 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings are simple, elegant, and seriously lightweight. With the same bomber toepiece as the hard charging Kingpin series, plus a DIN 12 pin heel, the Alpinist 12 is no slouch when it comes to downhill performance. But the real kicker is that you get all of that in a binding that weighs just 270 grams. With less weight and a more streamlined design than popular hybrid options, but superior skiing performance to many other ultralight tech bindings, the Marker Alpinist 12 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings hit a perfect sweet spot for competent skiers pushing deep into the backcountry.
