helow...my name is Claudia and I live in chile, I need this binding. My question is. we have this bings in smal???
The right stuff
This is the perfect blend of light, durability and performance; just toured three miles, then black diamond turns in the spring slush, pure bliss...

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?
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.
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?
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?:)
My recomendation is for the marker baron/duke ski binding it will give you sturdy preformance for resort riding as well as backcountry.
standard inbounds bindings and an MFD All-Time
Standard inbounds bindings and a BCA alpine trekker
The marker f12/f10 binding

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?
where is the noise? in the pin? or are the ski and binding hitting eachother?
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
I know there's already a question concerning...
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.
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

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?
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.
Thanks Dave. I'm excited about the Wailershear 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

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.
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.

i'm wearing 22,5 size boot can i buy a small f12?
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.
I have a pair of Volkl AC50. Can these...
I have a pair of Volkl AC50. Can these bindings fit?
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...
Is the Tour F 10 compatible with Alpine boots, or do you need an AT boot?
Alpine boot compatible.
So if Jackie Passo can take this binder...
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?
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?
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
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.

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

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?
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.

I read that the 2011 binding toe piece breaks often,
did marker solve the problem with the 2012 version ?
