A touring beast.
Whether you enjoy the skin out as much as the ski down or just live to feel the burn, wait until you get your gloves on a pair of the Marker Tour F10 AT Binding. This AT binder features steadfast reliability and a wide footprint at a fraction of the weight of similar Marker bindings. An integrated 7- and 13-degree titanium climbing aid ramps you up to help gain elevation without the fatigue, and the wide footprint brings with it stability and responsiveness you'll feel from the freshies in the trees to the open bowls over the ridge.
- A 3-10 DIN range offers versatility to those who like to get away from the crowds and lap up the backcountry
- Triple Pivot Light toe with a horizontally oriented spring offers a unique combination of light weight and solid power transmission
- Hollow Linkage heel features a hollow horizontal axle that saves weight and maximizes power transmission
- Hollow Linkage has improved heel kinematics which allows for an easier step-in

Perfect for east coast
Bought these this year specifically for east coast front side laps and letting it loose at Tuckermans. Great alpine capabilities and lite-enough weight for ascending. I pushed it pretty hard launching 10-15 footers, cranked GS turns in icy conditions and they performed flawlessly. Been skiing them with BD Quadrants and my only complaint is that they require a lot of heel force to click-in. This comes into play when trying to lock in on steep terrain, makes it tricky. Only other minor inconvenience is that you have to take them off to change from touring to alpine. The heel adjusters are very easy and quick to change with poles. Overall I'm very pleased with their performance. They accomplish my intended use perfectly. Will report back on durability after I have a few season under their belt. BTW, they're mounted on Kastle FX 84's, I'm 5'8" 150
Can I use marker f10 binding with 90 mm...
Can I use marker f10 binding with 90 mm brakes on my downhill skis, which has a waist of 78 mm? IF not what is your AT suggestion?
Good for lightweights
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
My small (110 lb) wife uses this mainly as her everyday binding with the occasional backcountry foray (usually before and after the resort season). They have been great for that, but if she toured all the time I would likely put her on a Dynafit. All in all these perform well - takes her a little extra effort to stamp into the heel. For the skier who is in bounds more than out, but want the option without a whole new setup - an excellent choice.

The description claims the pair weight of the small is 3 lbs 12.3 oz, but Marker's site says 1960 grams, or 4.3 lbs. Which is accurate?
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have these mounted on a pair of BD Zealots which allow for a very beefy side country set up. I primarily use it for touring just outside the ropes or mechanized with a snowmobile. definitely on the heavier side when it comes to a touring binding however not the heaviest by any means. I have used this binding on long skins and it holds up well, just a little heavy for my taste on long days.
Great for touring, need more for skiing.

I am 6'3" 190lbs and used these bindings last season. There were great for the tour up the hill and held their own on the way down, but I always wanted a higher DIN than just the 10. I never had any issues, but the fact that I had a 10 kept me in check. Maybe that was a good thing though.
These are nice bindings which will work with your traditional ski boots and a great binding to start of your touring career.
The ski in front is locked into hike/skin mode. the skin in back is also in skin mode, but the leather loop is holding it up and the climbing aids wont properly work until you pull the loop out and push the lever the rest of the way down.
Not a huge issue, but there you go.
Great Brand, Good Bindings
I think these bindings are great. I got them for my wife. She only weighs about 120 with all her snow gear on, so the small DIN is perfect for her. They're a nice light weight too. And the wider base plate is nice for the wider skis you want for backcountry pow.
My only issue is with the lever that switches from ski to skin mode. On my Marker Dukes, it's a solid metal lever that either locks forward or back. On the F10, the metal lever also has a leather loop on it. The lever also doesn't lock back as hard as on the Dukes. So if you're not paying attention, the loop can prevent the binding from sliding all the way back when switching to skin mode, and the climbing aids wont hit the catches at 7 and 13 degrees and your feet will be nearly flat. It's an easy enough problem to fix, pay more attention, but just could have been designed better.
Still a good choice for AT bindings though.
Are the Royal Family brakes and the Tour...
Are the Royal Family brakes and the Tour brakes the same/interchangeable? Looking to get a 110 (for a 100 mm ski), but having one hell of a time doing so.
Yes. Royal Family brakes can be applied to the Marker Tour F10 and F12 randonee bindings.
After finally getting these mounted and out in the backcountry, I am not disappointed! Lightweight and a solid binding, I felt confident in all my turns the whole way day. Great binding for touring.
these are great, easy to put in hiking or touring mode & I love the heel lifts

I have the 2011 version of these, and have significant problems with ice building up in the rails when in walk mode, so bad that it takes me forever and lots of bloody fingers later to get it back into ski mode. Is this years version improved at all?
I haven't had any problems like that.
No issues for my wife.
This can happen in wet snow conditions! The new version is improved but in super wet snow you still might get some build up. Most bindings of this design no matter what brand have that issue in wet snow. Marker is working to eliminate the issue completely. The new version is much better though.
Can I mount this binding on a narrow ski...
Can I mount this binding on a narrow ski like the K2 Shuksan that is 78mm at the waist?
You could certainly pull it off but I would not recommend this wide of a binding for that ski.

I just picked up a pair of these and can't wait for more snow to fall! I plan on using these on some pretty wide skis where the brakes won't really have any influence, any suggestions or problems faced there? Thanks
Marker makes an extra wide brake that will work with the Tour series- I would recommend picking up a pair of those!
Order some wide brakes from Marker. Make sure they are for your binding and width of ski. Your local shop might be able to help as well.
