Ski touring or skinning has been making waves over the course of the last 5 years or so with skiers from all ability levels, and has really been catching on with the overcrowding of the resort scene these days. For skiers who want to keep their existing alpine boots and discover the adventurous side of skiing and exploration, they need a frame binding that can accommodate their current alpine boots. The Marker F10 Tour AT Bindings fits that bill perfectly. Just simply step in with your traditional alpine boots with this binding and you are ready to go. (Although you will also need to invest in skins) With a redesigned Triple Pivot Light 2 toe, you get less weight, easy step in and step out capabilities, and great releasability when you it need it most. It even has an anti-ice rail to help shed ice and snow build up in the toe too which are very common occurrences when ski touring. A new Hollow Linkage 2 Heel offers improved step in and added security. This is a great entry-level touring binding with solid all-mountain performance for the skier who is either new to skinning or does not want to take a leap into tech boots. The Marker F10 Tour AT Bindings offers a whole new form of freedom in the mountains that are just waiting to be discovered.
