This is the perfect blend of light, durability and performance; just toured three miles, then black diamond turns in the spring slush, pure bliss...

Posted on

My boot is a 305mm Nordica Dobberman, the bottom end of the large bindings, but I'd like to mount these on a pair of Gotamas, 107mm underfoot, for which i would need the wider brake and there are no small bindings with the wide brake in stock. Would the large binding be ok or would I be risking a loose fit if I purchased it?

Responded on

You should fit the Large, but another option is to just buy the small and bend the brake out, which won't be a difficult task for your local shop.

Responded on

Or yet another option is to buy the small and then purchase the wider 110mm brakes from Marker. That's what I did to fit my CRJ Signature stix.

Is it possible to change som parts if somthing happends with this binding?

Responded on

Depending on what parts are broken it may possible to get them fixed by Marker. If there is a problem it is best to contact Marker to see what they can do.

Hey! So I'm gonna be 90% in bounds atleast as of now. I'm an aggressive skier and will be hucking cliffs and stuff, I'm about 5'5 and 130 pounds I ride on a 165cm black diamond elements and need bindings! I've used fritchees and liked those because they're simple, but I need something thats good for mostly in bounds. Any suggestions?:)

Responded on

My recomendation is for the marker baron/duke ski binding it will give you sturdy preformance for resort riding as well as backcountry.

*Other options*
standard inbounds bindings and an MFD All-Time
Standard inbounds bindings and a BCA alpine trekker
The marker f12/f10 binding

Posted on

Upgraded to the F12 with Scarpa boots after many years of 3 pin bindings. So far, so good...just seem really noisy in tour mode . Is there anything that can be done to quiet them down a bit?

Responded on

where is the noise? in the pin? or are the ski and binding hitting eachother?

1 5


Gotta say, I'm pretty bummed. My Marker F12's broke less than a mile into my first tour. I was just out for a ski with my family, and I'm only 130 lbs, so it's not like there was a huge strain on the bindings. I didn't even get a chance to (struggle with) sliding them to the alpine mode before the binding snapped in half. Needless to say, I'm taking them back to the shop and getting a refund, which I will put toward some Fritschi's

Responded on

yeah, that's the old version of the F12s. this year's have been beefed up right there. you should trading them in for some of this years, they have made some good improvements.

Responded on

Yeah, I had my F12s break in exactly the same place (well, closer to the toe), and it left me stranded 8 miles out in the back country of SE Alaska in chest deep powder. It was the worst ski experience of my life - downright dangerous, actually. I don't know how to feel about the F12s anymore. They were solid on the downhill and relatively easy to switch around - although the icing up issue when trying to switch into downhill was frustrating; definately need a tool in wet snow, as the 'bashing' won't get it all.

So, what to do.. what to do?

Posted on

I know there's already a question concerning this, but I'm lighter. Should I go with the F12 of Baron? I'm 150 pounds and jump off nothing bigger than 20 feet. This will be a 70% inbounds binding.

Responded on

problably the f12...because of you DIN #.......but the

Baron for your inbounds/out of bounds ratio......

i would recomend the f12 because its lighter

Posted on

My new DPS Wailer skis are 112mm under foot. Will the Marker F12 with 110mm brakes bend adequately or must I go with the much wider 132mm brake set up?

Best Answer Responded on

The 110mm brakes will easily work for the Wailer. You may not even have to bend them. It's only 1mm on each side.

Also, I'm jealous of your skis.

Responded on

Thanks Dave. I'm excited about the Wailers—hear good things about them, and wasn't thrilled by the alternatives I got to ski. Took the plunge and was fortunate enough to score a pair out of SLC Salon. Yeayy

Posted on

Considering Marker F12 vs. Duke/Baron. I will be 90% in bounds but want the ability to occasionally tour with one set-up. Also hate the weight on the chair lift of my current Atomic Metron 9/ neox binding set up. Are the F12's too delicate for mostly descents? I'm 185 lbs, no hucking off cliffs. Thanks for the help.

Responded on

At 90 percent inbounds, definitely Duke or Baron, just must burlier and NO play at all. While the Tour is a nice setup, it is way slanted to backcountry.

Posted on

i'm wearing 22,5 size boot can i buy a small f12?

Responded on

What is your sole length? The specs are wrong, these bindings do not work with a sole length of 265 let alone 266. The forward pressure will be too light on a 266 and not even close on a 265.

Posted on

I have a pair of Volkl AC50. Can these bindings fit?

Responded on

NO - The AC50 uses integrated bindings. That means you can only use the bindings that came with the ski, nothing else. The F12 will fit only skis that have a flat top-sheet, and are not integrated.

Is the Tour F 10 compatible with Alpine boots, or do you need an AT boot?

Posted on

So if Jackie Passo can take this binder off 50 footers, I would assume I can ski it aggressively as an off-piste binding? However, I have been led to believe the opposite: that this is a 20% ski binding and an 80% touring binding. Any thoughts about a 130 lb, 5'3" gal taking some hits on these?

Responded on

Hmmm, good points. My wife skis these on her Kikus, mainly in resort, she is 5'7", 115. Strong skier, but no 50 footers on her resume. I can say she skied and toured in them all last winter with no issues. If you are mainly touring though, get something that you can deskin without having to take you skis off. This is main weakness of these and the Barron/Dukes.

I am planning on using an alpine boot with the F12. What do you think?

No problem for going out the gate or short trips. Not as much fun if you are truly touring!

RE: Marker Tour F12 Bindings - 2010/2011
does the LG fit on boot of size 25-26?


Responded on

Depends on the brand of the boot, but probably not. The LG binding is sized 305-365mm. The bottom of your boot will tell you how long your boot is, but a size 25-26 is somewhere around 290-300mm. But again, depends on the brand of the boot.

Marker Tour F10 and Tour F12

Posted on

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.

Responded on

Accurate portrayal of the 'bashing' technique in order to help remove snow from the mounting plates before sliding the binding into Ski mode. Don't be shy about it. I found that a strong bladed knife was essential in order to get the ice removed from the mounting plate's runners. Ice formed up under my bindings on every tour that I've ever been on with a Duke/Baron/F12 (I live in the Wasatch, would have to assume coastal snow is even more likely to freeze up during the climb). It was a small price to pay for the security and sturdiness during the descents.

Posted on

My skis are 127mm underfoot - can I merely fit the Marker 130mm brakes to the F12 Tour bindings so they are compatible? (I am assuming the 110mm brake is too small to bend that far)

Responded on

The Marker brakes are compatible though the Royal and Touring families of binding, so yes, the 130 brake will work on this binding.

Posted on

Size Help - My boots have a BSL of 316 and I cant decide which size I should get since my boots would fit into both sizes. Is there a benefit or drawback from getting the larger size and same thing with going smaller?

Responded on

if you would fit into both, and you don't expect to grow at all, get the smaller one. you'll have less weight. I know a few grams may not seem like a lot, but every bit helps on the uphill.
