Description

Like a roadie on a diet, this binding tours easily without dragging any extra weight during the inevitable uphill battles.

Straight from the diabolically revolutionary design of the Duke and Baron freeride bindings comes the new 10-DIN Marker F10 Touring Binding. Same steadfast reliability and wide footprint at a fraction of the weight. Die-hard skinners looking for a dainty AT binding will have to look elsewhere because the F10 might be light, but its performance design doesn't pull punches. An integrated 7- and 13-degree climbing wire 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.
  • Redesigned heel and toe interface provided an improved fit for AT boot soles
  • The new, patented BCC (Back Country Comfort) ski/tour mode lever operates easily, even with gloves on, and feels comfortable in your hand
  • A new removable ski brake gives you the option to reduce weight in the backcountry
  • An elastomer-padded and dual-position pole-actuated titanium climbing assist adjusts to 7 and 13 degrees for uphill comfort
  • The gas-injected truss baseplate has a hollow construction for increased performance
  • Stiffness and low weight reduce fatigue during skinning

Awesome for backcountry riding/ casual tourer

Read A LOT of reviews about these before finally buying, most of them talked about 'knee fall' problems, others weren't actually reviews just people saying 'I don't know looks light and weak'

For the light weight skiier who wants to ride powder with the occasional skin these are PERFECT.

My concerns before buying were:

1. They will suck for riding (bad ejection, loose) - NOT true they are as goods as a normal alpine binding
2. They are weak because of their weight - doesn't appear to be true we were hit 20 ft drops and they are solid (I used in park too..)
3. Difficult for touring - Probably true compared to a proper touring binding, but for the occasional hike they are perfect and easy to set up

I have these mounted on 174 Armarda TSTs. Don't let the weight put you off this is best bit about them. And the Barons weigh much much more and appear to be very similar in capability and strength. I weigh about 60 kg, so this from a light persons perspective, if your heavier (70+ kg probably go with F12s)

Cons:
When clicked in the heel is at a pretty sharp angle, and is quite a sharp shape. Lets just say its easy to bruise your ass hole if you under rotate forwards or land drops too far back...

Enjoy and don't spend a month researching like I did!

Do they ski well all around the mountain.
Woul i aslo be able to use them as normal alpine bindings?

Responded on

Yes - these will function just like an alpine binding with a 10 maximum DIN if you are at the resort and want a regular binding. This binding would be a good choice for a lighter weight skier who skis about 50/50 resort and backcountry. The Marker Baron is a bit heavier and more burly if you are mostly resort with a little bit of short hikes. For all day outings, you may want to consider dynafit bindings.

who tours on a ski that is 85mm at the waist??? i like the weight of this binding and the price, but can i just have the narrow brake removed during install and get a leash??

You can definitely swap those out for a wider brake that Marker sells

thank you jeff. that is what i figured, just wanted to make sure.

I'm getting the Armada Vjj skis and I'm looking for a good binding to do more backcountry skiing. Should I go for the Baron or the F10? Any suggestions

Responded on

The answer is simple: MORE backcountry skiing, go with the F10. MORE resort skiing, go with the Baron. But if you're not a super aggressive skier or above-average height, then you can probably get away with the F10 in most resort situations.

Best Answer Responded on

Yes, the length adjusting screw should be flush with the housing, that is the appropriate forward pressure.

Hi,

Thanks a lot!!!!!

Can anyone tell me about the Marker Griffin Touring Binding 110 millimeter brakes? My son is asking for them for Christmas and I am clueless.

His MOM!

Responded on

Mom, I SUSPECT he wants a Marker Baron, which is touring binding with more of a downhill skiing emphasis. I say this because the Griffon is a reference to a regular Marker alpine binding, but then you throw the tour in there.....so, does he do any ski touring at all? If a little, then the Marker Baron, if none, the Marker Griffon, and if a lot, this binding, the Marker Tour F10. The 110 refers to the brake width, which is standard on this binding, and you choose in drop down menu. Or, cal customer service to make sure you are getting the 110 in whatever binding you settle on. Good Luck!!

This shows you how to use the F10 and F12 bindings. I wish I had seen this before I went touring. Check out the transition technique, especially the snow removal and knee press.

What is the difference between the Large and the Small?

Responded on

Whether you get large or small depends on your boot sole length - the numbers, e.g 305-365 represent the range of adjustment. The sole length is generally printed on the side of your boot - find the number and go from there.

downhill over touring

I bought this F10 binding after a 5 mile hike in the backcountry wearing snowshoes, with my ski's, and boots on my back. I can say touring in this binding is MUCH better than that hellish experience of trying to keep up with my pro boy friend, although it's come with a handful of new challenges since. 5'2", 110 lbs, should be MORE than adequate to be charging hard on these in tour mode. By my second trip I managed to break the heel lifters on both bindings. The plastic is simply not strong enough to hold the lifters in place if you put any amount of force on the heel. It is exceptionally difficult to change modes from tour back into the downhill once there is any sort of snow build up in the binding after a hike (they makers should have considered this). While everyone else quickly snaps their gear into place, i'm struggling, trying to dig out the snow from the binding. In the high rockies, with wind blasting, zero visibility and under 0 temps, the LAST thing I want to do is take off my gloves and trying to use my fingernails to scrape away the snow and ice and muscle my binding back into downhill mode. I'm usually the last person to ask for help usually being the only girl with a bunch of experienced guys, but it's happened more than once. When I finally manage to get the bindings back into mode, my downhill is always GREAT, and me being only 110lbs, i've never popped out of my DIN set on 8. They are significantly lighter than all the other AT's I considered, but once I can afford to upgrade gear again, I will be going with a true AT setup. It's been an okay step in the direction in being a backcountry skier, but if you have had better experiences than described here in other gear, i'd gladly carry around extra weight for a better experience in changing modes and actually having heel lift while I hike.

Responded on

I agree that these are great downhill bindings. Going from AT mode to ski mode is a pain. I saw a video on Marker's YouTube channel about smashing the binding against the ski a few times to remove snow and then closing it with your knee pressed against the binding. The video made it look easy, I will try this in practice during the season.

Sorry to see that your heel lifters broke. Would you mind letting me know exactly which piece broke so I can watch my bindings.

Posted on

I am trying to decide which Markers to mount on my Rossi Voodoo SC80's. I'm 5'6", 130 lb and ski a DIN 7 on my regular alpines. Will probably do about 60% in bounds and 40% backcountry this season. Is the lighter F10 giving up any toughness to the Baron?

Best Answer Responded on

The F10 has had some serious durability issues that reared their ugly head last season. There have been a whole slew of bindings that have had broken toe pieces. Marker has a great warranty program, but that doesn't help you when you are on the mountain or on vacation. I know someone who's toe piece broke, he sent it back, received a new pair and it broke again a short while later. The second time he sent it back, he spoke to marker and asked about durability, long story short, after that conversation the replacement pair he received was a pair of barons. The baron is slightly heavier but has much better performance and durability. For what you're looking to do with the binding, you would be much better off getting the baron.

Hi, Do these come in different sizes? I think my bsl is 295.

Responded on

Yes, these come in both small (265-325mm) and large (305-365mm). If your BSL is 295mm, then you will need to go with the small. It looks like that size is currently out of stock.

Posted on

I'm interested in some marker f-10 bindings for my wife who just baught a pair of volkl kiku's. I believe these skis are 106 at the waist but the brake on the markers says they are 85. Can you get a brake that will fit a larger ski?

Responded on

Yes; check with your local ski shop when you have them mounted. They often have extra's laying around or can order one for you.

Responded on

I am sure you have already dealt with this, but the F10 is available standard with a brake wide enough for the Kiku.

Posted on

My GF is 5ft and 100lbs. Im debating on getting her the f10s or the barons. I dont think she will every break the f10s even on hard pack east coast skiing. The question is whether the f10s or the barons had better safety features (lateral & vertical toe release? lateral heel release?). It seems like they are the same but I cant be positive from the descriptions here. Anyone have any insight on the safety differences? Will the f10s stand up year after year on hard pack east coast resort skiing when not in the BC?

Responded on

The safety on both bindings are the same. The differences you will see are are weight and durability. I find the heavier bindings ski better, but if she only weighs 100lbs it probably doesn't matter. YMMV

I patrolled probably 60 days last season and only broke a brake (common across all bindings).

Posted on

Will these accommodate Alpine boots or just AT? Can you switch from skinning to alpine mode without stepping out of the bindings?

Responded on

They accomodate alpine boots as well as AT. I just rented a pair of Hardsides with F12s and took them to a resort where I spent one day skiing in Alpine boots and the next freeheeling in my AT boots.

Responded on

Do you mean that you can't skin with your heels free if you're wearing traditional alpine boots?

Responded on

You can skin with either AT or regular alpine boots. What sandshadow probably meant is that you can relatively easily adjust the binding to fit either AT or alpine boots.

Posted on

Can you safely ski these inbounds? My regular bindings are set at a DIN of 6, and I'm not the most aggressive skier, but if they're as delicate as the Fritsches then maybe I should go for the Barons instead. Thoughts?

Responded on

I'm 6', 205, and also use a DIN of 6. I had no problems with the F12s when I demo'ed them at a resort, and will get F10s for my next pair of skis.

Posted on

I'm in between the F10 and F12 to put on My 178 Rossi S3's. I ski fairly aggressively but am only 130lbs 5'6''... maybe 160lbs tops with gear and a pack. Has anyone had issues with pre-releasing? Should I just suck up the cost and go for the 12 din? I ski with my dins at 8 and spend a lot of time in bumps and trees when I'm inbounds.

Responded on

I'd go with the F12. Not only will the spring be a little bigger, but the binding itself is a touch burlier and might last you a little longer, especially if you're skiing aggressively on it.

So far so good, with only 1 reservation

This is my first pair of AT bindings, and I've only skied on them once. I really like how light and solid they are. Very well made. The one surprise for me (and being new to AT I didn't know I'd care) is that you have to remove the ski to switch between ski & walk mode. My friends on Fritsches did this in seconds while I removed one ski at a time to make the change. We'll see with time and how I use these how big a deal that ends up being.

Responded on

yes, this is the difference with most AT bindings you can stay in the ski to transition. From my limited bc/at experience using markers, fritschi's and dynafits, unless youre racing, doesnt make a big difference!

Responded on

I agree with Bradley that this isn't a big deal. I have DynaFits on my current AT skis. I _almost_ always take the skis off anyway when switching to downhill mode in order to take the skins off.

Responded on

When its really helpful is skiing out on trails on long approaches. When I had fritches, its pretty slick to switch to tour mode real quick for the flats or slight uphill, where putting skins back on would be ridiculous. Sure it just takes a wee bit of time to switch over on markers but it adds up when covering great distance and you must do it over and over.... still sweet bindings though.

I have a ski mounted with F10 bindings and it is 104mm under the boot. While in Jackson Hole I purchased a 110mm wide brake that is notes Duke/Jester etc (part number W015G1B). The brake fits mounting rail and screww holes but seems to sit 3 mm higher. Is this brake compatible with the F10?
