When your shiny new skis are capable of schralping the entire mountain, they need a binding that will do them justice. Marker's Jester 16 ID Ski Binding excels on the front and backside of the mountain with a versatile design that will withstand big hits in the park and stomp big landings in back bowls with ease.
Equipped with Marker's Sole.ID technology, this binding is compatible with standard alpine boots and AT boots with lugged soles. The versatile 6-16 DIN range accommodates almost any style of skiing, whether you're the sort that lives for big drops beneath the chairlift, fresh pow between the trees, or big hits in the park. Marker's Inter Pivot heel is easy to step into, so you won't lose anytime when you're hurrying to the lift on a pow day, and the burly magnesium parts will withstand some serious abuse, so you won't have to call your day short when you decide to go big off that cliff that's been calling your name all season.

very excited to try these
Just picked these up, so haven't had a chance to ski them yet with our season coming later than normal. Always known the Jester to be one of the top choices and the selling point on this pair was the toe piece that accommodates a wider range of boots without compromising any of the hold, or more importantly, release value. Also, the heel piece is getting closer and closer to the Rossi/Look pivot heel, which is a good thing.
Why so(le) Serious?
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Marker has been in the top manufacturers for bindings since I began skiing, but they are really stepping up the game with this one. The new Marker Jester 16 ID extends its performance range with SOLE.ID, allowing both Alpine (downhill skiing) and Alpine Touring (backcountry skiing) boot compatibility to create the most versatile freeride binding on the market today. With skis getting wider and wider, a lot of power transmission can be lost between the binding and the ski, forcing the skier to drive harder and ultimately resulting in greater fatigue. The Jester features Power Width Design, Markerâs signature toe and heel designs engineered to make todayâs wider skis perform at their very best. I can say that this binding does a great job of holding you in, and wonât pre-release unless it is really necessary. This binding will work great for you if you are an advanced to expert skier. For less advanced skiers, I recommend the Marker Griffon 13 ID binding. If you have questions about what brake size will work best for your skis, or if this binding is a good fit for you, please contact me directly!
