Description

The Jester embodies pure freestyle performance.

The Marker Jester's shorter, flatter, wider mounting footprint improves control whether you're riding forward, riding switch, or flying through the air.
  • Compact footprint allows more natural flex and concentrates swing weight
  • Wide mounting points improve lateral control over wide skis
  • Low 2mm ramp angle for more natural switch riding feel
  • Skis must be at least 76mm wide to accept wider mounting pattern

Cant go wrong!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i have used these on Hellbents and Chopsticks. You honestly cant go wrong with them. Theyre super solid and relatively light. I have toured them, skied wast deep pow, and dropped huge cliffs. Never had a pre release. Do yourself a favor and buy these right now, you wont regret it.

I am a strong big mountain skier(and a little park) who is into cliff drops and spinning of backcountry kickers and im 70kg. How would these bindings suit me on a pair of Armada ARVs? Also my ARVs have a width of 92mm. What brake would be the best suit?thanks

Responded on

These bindings would be a great option. One of the better bindings around these days, easily handles big mountain and park riding. For brakes, I would say that the 90mm brakes will work, with a little bit of bending, so that they fit. The 110mm brakes will be not only too sloppy, but won't hold your skis together base to base. Any good ski shop should be able to bend the brakes out for you.

Can i use my scarpa skookum touring boots with these? i dont plan on purchasing another pair of boots just for my hellbents and love the jesters. thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

No, these will only work with an Alpine DIN sole.

The Dukes will work with both AT or Alpine if you want to go that way.

All good - but not from Backcountry!

Bought the last of Backcountry.com's stock of the Jester. Concur with the majority opinion here about these bindings. But caution buying from Backcountry.com - my Jesters arrived loose in their box - no styrofoam or even bubble wrap to protect - the pieces had been banging into each other causing multiple scratches/marks on all surfaces. Perhaps they were Returns, but that doesn't excuse poor re-packing. Shame Backcountry.com!

Responded on

that’s how they come from the factory

Responded on

Yeah get your facts right. Also who cares about packaging and looks if your a REAL skier.

Im about to buy '09 kung fujas 179cm with a 95mm waist. should i get the 90mm or 110mm jester brakes? any help id really appreciate it...

Responded on

Any time you can get brakes that fit without bending them out, you should. This makes sure they can't void any warrantee. There won't be a very tight fit with the skis together, but that isn't a big deal, a strap can fix it if it is bothering you.

Responded on

thanks. you think have that +10mm difference if i get the 110mm brakes will affect performance?

Jester is not my favorite

This binding is leaps and bounds ahead of anything else that Marker offers. That being said, they are still not my favorite ski binding..period. I don't feel like their elasticity is high enough. I feel like they ski too high off of the ski (unless you are skiing a ski that is 140mm wide or you are solely carving then this binding feels really high off of the ski). The binding is however light and fairly durable, but overpriced and poor spring elasticity in my opinion. 8/10

marker got it right!!!

was not a big fan of marker in the past but the jesters ROCK!!!! they are very light and have not come out of them once!!! props to marker for finally getting them right......great job@!!!!!

What size Jester brakes for Volkl Mantra?...

Posted on

What size Jester brakes for Volkl Mantra? They are 96mm. 90mm is too small and 110mm seems like they will drag or get caught together in moguls.

Responded on

your just gonna have to get one or the other and either get new brakes from your local repair shop or you can get the 90's and see if you can bend them far enough or you can just live with the 110's

I need to replace my Marker M1000 bindings (they broke a little bit ago). Do the mounting holes match up to what was already drilled into my skis on the M1000s? Thanks.

Responded on

I do not believe they will. These have a different hole pattern than the m1000.

compatability w/ the dalbello krypton...

Posted on

compatability w/ the dalbello krypton shell? so, rumor has it that these binders don't like the toe piece on the kryptons. should i look at the rossi binding in place of these? want to give 'em a shot! thanks

Responded on

I believe you are correct, the kryptons toe piece is a litte bit narrower than most boots, and since the jester lacks toe height adjustment i've heard of more than a few people pre releasing from them.

Responded on

I have 08/09 Krypton Pros and Jesters on Nordica Enforcers. I have had numerous pre releases, primarily in crud and pow. My DIN is set one full setting higher than my 2 other pairs of skis (Marker M14.0 and Dynafit) and I still blow out in similar terrain. The boot toe seems to move up and down. REI binding tech says boot is in spec for binding and the spacing between boot and AFD is right on. Something ain't right in Markerville. Should we take a hint from the name "Jester"?

Anybody know about the toe piece clicking...

Posted on

Anybody know about the toe piece clicking on these binders? when skiing hard on bigger terrain the toe pieces make a clicking noise, and i have some vertical slop, the bindings are adjusted correctly, forward pressure is good etc. it makes me really nervous was wondering if anyone else had similar experiences.

Responded on

That's definitely not normal! I've been skiing my Jesters since the beginning of last season, and I have over 150 days on them, and I haven't had any problems like that... If you bought them here at backcountry, I would suggest exchanging them for a new pair. Otherwise, I'm not sure what you could do... I would call marker directly or something.

Posted on

I just purchased a pair of Volkl Gotamas (176cm: 133 / 105 / 124mm). I would have liked to have gotten the 183cm but found a ridiculously good deal on the 176. I am 5'9'' and weight about 180 after a big breakfast. I was looking for a good versatile binding. Weight is not of too big of a concern; however, I would like something that has great lateral stability, little pre-release from the toe-piece, and is durable...is that too specific (not)? Right now, the Marker Jester would seem to be my first choice due to the wide toe-piece. I am a fairly aggressive skier and will spend the majority of the time in off-piste terrain or in the trees looking for those last few bits of fluffy stuff. I spend little time in the park and do not huck myself off too many big jumps but will occasionally. So, what are some other bindings I should consider? Are there any concerns I should have with the Jester? Lastly, would you recommend the 90mm (rebend) or the 110mm? Thanks for your help.

Responded on

These bindings aren't just for park or cliff hucks, they can handle any kind of skiing you throw at them. For other bindings I personally love the Look PX 15 FS WB. It has a longer footprint, and is extremely good at trees and off-piste. There really are no major faults in the Jester, it has good powder transmission, low swing drag and are pretty cool. Can't really go wrong. Go for the 110mm binding though, which will fit well with your ski, and won't void your warrantee with a rebend.

Posted on

I have 07 mojo 105's and need to get better bindings for them. I recently tore my mcl, so I'm looking for a binding that would would somewhat prevent that(tearing ligaments while landing spins). I'm 5'10", 170lbs, and ski mostly park and powder when it's there.

Responded on

Other than this new binding (http://www.kneebinding.com/), all bindings release in generally the same manner. No binding is going to be any better at preventing knee injury (if they are all set up correctly) than any other binding.

Would you recommend the 90 or 110 size to go with the K2 Apache Outlaw, which has a 92MM width under foot?

Responded on

90 will fit nicely without rebending

will the 90mm brake fit my line anthems...

Posted on

will the 90mm brake fit my line anthems (93mm waist) or should i go with the 110 brakes?

Responded on

will not fit. But you can rebend it (see youtube) fairly easy. 110 will fit but the skis won't stay tight when you put them together (could also drag a big.) I'd go with 90's and rebend.90mm brakes will fit pretty easily on anything that is 3mm or so bigger than the actual break without bendingn, you might need to bend a little but not a large amount

Buy these now

Hands down the best binding i've ever skied on. I only ski these on the east coast and they have the perfect amount of height for both the park and ripping around the mountain. Also, they sound they make when you step into them seems to give you that extra bit of confidence.
