    All downhill, and no apologies.

    Marker is the only manufacturer that makes a non-touring binding that accommodates AT and alpine boots safely: the Lord SP Ski Binding. The burly, made-for-ripping Triple Pivot Elite toe features a pin system that you adjust for AT or alpine boots. Finer adjustment is made with the AFD plate. Because some people don't like their touring bindings unless, well, they're touring. These designated downhill bindings are lighter than the AT bindings, and most time burlier for harder-charging descents. So when you can handle specialized bindings, rather than making a compromise when inbounds, you do.

    Functional binding for AT boots

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Bought these for my wife's Kastle Mx 70 style slalom ski. She uses an AT boot (garmont) for everything- powder skis to icy groomer skis and we couldn't find a good, non-touring binding to accommodate her boot until now.



    The marker lords mounted easily to a 70mm wide ski and the 90 mm brakes did not get in the way. They actually fold into the side of the binding when the boot is locked in. The bindings are a little heavy but overall it's an extremely light set up.



    Zero complaints. I'll be buying a set for myself!

    Uhm, am I missing something, or is the...

    Uhm, am I missing something, or is the Lord hyping functionality that is already in all of the "royal family" bindings?

    I have both the Griffons & the Barons, and the adjustable-height AFD allows me to adjust them both to funtion properly with my rubber-soled Dynafit Titan UL AT boots.

    Griffons & Barons adjust to: 1) the width of my toe lugs, 2) proper AFD clearance, 3) forward pressure at heel.

    What could a binding do to be more "AT compatible" than that?

    Best Answer

    I was curious about this myself, the answer is not readily available. From doing some research, I believe that the Jester/Barron or Duke have 5mm of AFD adjustment, same with this binding, but the toe piece also has two different height settings, which will get you an additional 5mm of adjustment (for rockered soles of more A/t oriented boots). If you have Cochise boots, you might not need this, but if you have some Dinafits or Scarpas, you will. I'm surprised that you can get your Titans to work with a Jester bindo though! You must not have much toe rocker. Unfortunately, I've read that even this additional 5mm of clearance is not enough for some A/T boots with a lot of sole rocker in the toe.



    If you want to get real dorked out on this subject here's some beta from our friends at TGR:



    http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php/266740-Marker-Lord-SP-Binding-Thread

    Thanks for the intel Craig. So they've expanded the range of adjustability by 5mm?

    I can't speak for other boot manufacturers, but the regular "Royal Family" bindings work fine with any of Dynafit's current boots you would actually want to use with a downhill oriented binding: I've had Vulcans & Mercuries in my Barrons, no problem as well.

    Seems like Marker is chasing a tiny piece of the pie in a strange way: why create a whole new binding model when you can just revise the toe on the existing Griffon & Jester?

    I ski the Vulcan boot because it is almost half the weight of a regular downhill boot. it may be a small piece of the market but this is the only binding that is not an AT that actually works. you can stuff the AT boot in any binding, but the release is totally unpredictable. I applaud Marker for being the only manufacturer that is willing to make a downhill binding for an AT boot. The Barron is strictly AT and the Griffon and Jester can not be adjusted.

    Sorry Don, but you're wrong on all accounts: all Royal Family Series Markers work perfectly when adjusted for AFD clearance on the Vulcan. I've had Dynafit Vulcans, Mercurys, and Titans in both my Barron & Griffin bindings.

    Release & retention is perfect & 100% consistent with alpine boots.

    ALL royal family bindings have IDENTICAL toe-height adjustment mechanisms which allow me to dial in Marker's specified amount of AFD clearance.

    This Lord binding evidently has an extra 5mm of clearance for hypothetical, ultra-rockered boots, but your Dynafits are not among them.

    While we're at it, the size 28.5 Vulcans I didn't buy (hated the lack of progressive flex) were 7.6 lbs. My stock Solomon Falcons are 10.6lbs. AT boots are great, but they're not magically exempt from the laws of physics: you need mass to drive a ski.

    I really want these bindings but I weigh 115 lbs. Is that a big deal?

    Short answer: You should be ok.

    Long answer: DIN is determined by more than just your weight - ski shops take into account your height, weight, age, and skier type (as well as boot size, to a certain degree) to determine what DIN your bindings will be set to (and any concerns you might have related to releasing or not releasing). That having been said, if you're a beginner skier with big feet (the bigger the boot, the lower the DIN because, well, physics), these probably aren't the right binding. I'm about the same weight, have tiny feet, ski pretty aggressively and ride somewhere between a 6.5-8 depending on the bindings.



    When in doubt, check with your local ski shop - a tech can give you a pretty good idea of what DIN you'd ride.

    I would like to use these with BOTH my AT boot (310mm BSL) and my downhill boot (317mm BSL). Is this possible? Is their room for small adjustments (+/- 1-2 cm) in the heel to accommodate varying BSL's?

    I know these can work with an AT sole or regular din sole but I would like to use them with both my lange and my scarpa's, so my question is can I safely raise the toe piece my self or would I have to get the pro to do it and check the din every time I would switch boots?

    Chris,

    There is actually a screw in front of the AFD that is removable with an allen Key. After the screw is removed there is a lever you pull which will release the toe piece from the binding. At that point you can slide the toe piece to the correct height, push the lever back in and replace the screw with the allen key.

    In response to your question to my question below, I have Tecnica Cochise Pro boots, with tech soles (not DIN soles). Are these ISO 9523 certified?

    Best Answer

    Yes the Tech soles form Technica are ISO 9523 certified. Here is the info from Tecnica:



    DIN Sole- ISO 5355 rubberized heel pad on DIN footprints fits all alpine bindings and offers maximum grip on various surfaces



    Tech Sole- ISO 9523 rubberized sole pad on Tech footprints fits all AT bindings and offers maximum grip on rock, ice, and snow

    Can you please compare these with the Salomon STH 2. Will I be able to use AT boots (with tech soles) on both? Are only the Lord's ISO compatible with both DIN soles and Tech soles, or are the STH2's ISO compatible with both as well?

    Depends on what boots you have. The Lord will work with rubber AT soles and Alpine soles. The STH2 WTR will work only with Alpine soles or soles that are ISO 9523 certified, which does not include all AT soles. Full rockered rubber soles won't work in the STH2 WTR (like a Scarpa Mobe for example).

    Anyone know if there a 16 DIN version that still have the Alpine / AT sole adjustment? I want to use these with a CAST SIS&I system this season.

    Gabe I ended up getting DPS Wailer 99s with Lords and CAST SI&I plates. I alternate between Lange Comp Prop 120 for inbounds and BD Factor 130 for touring. The micro adjust in the heel allows for a decent amount of travel to accommodate different BSLs and the AFD adjustment in the front is way superior to the way you have to do it on other Royal Family bindings. Cranking the worm screw to constantly adjust the AFD eventually strips it. No fun. The CAST SI&I is clunky compared to a pure tech binding, I had a terrifing double eject fiasco almost two years ago now, so I see it as my only choice for the time being. I'm actually about to get another set of Lords and CAST Plates for a set a Wailer 112 RPCs. If my Zealots werent a couple years old and already drilled with DynaDuke plates I'd probably have just plopped my CAST system on the Zealots. Zealots rock, I think i'll always want them for big days at the resort.

    I threw my hat in the CAST ring as well this season. I've got Marker Lords mounted on the CAST plates on a pair of 193cm Atomic Bent Chetlers and I ski in a pair of Scarpa Maestrale AT boots. The Lords work ok with my Maestrales. As Susan mentioned above, the soles on the Maestrales have a lot of rocker to them so it isn't possible to get the AFD of a Lord adjusted low enough to see light between the boot sole and the AFD. That being said, I've double ejected and didn't blow my knees apart (or feel like I was about to). I mounted my setup at home, so I'm not sure what a ski shop would have to say about signing off on a release test with this boot/binding combo.



    In terms of the CAST system, it's pretty damn clunky and doesn't save you nearly as much weight as just going for Dynafits. I usually tour on a full Dynafit setup except for the rowdiest days. That being said, if you're set on using the CAST system and you have AT boots, the Marker Lord is the best option out there right now.
