Not so BADASS
I have the Dukes on Volkl Mantras and they worked fine for half the season, then the toe piece broke. I was skiing East Vail and fell which caused my skis to cross and broke the plastic that holds the AFD in place. It took Marker 10 weeks to send out a new pair and by that time Colorado snow was melting. I would be cautious if you are hard on your equipment like I am.
