Baron EPF 13 Ski Binding

Combine the reliability and power of a 13-DIN alpine binding with the free-heel freedom of an AT binding, and you have the Marker Baron 13 EPF Ski Binding. Built on Marker's Extended Power Frame, the Baron sits on a wide chassis, giving it the ability to drive wide, big mountain boards with authority. To keep them manageable on the ascent, the Barons feature Marker's Hollow Tech frame, which is a gas-injected hollow construction that is light, powerful, and dependable whether you're spinning laps in the resort, or accessing big backcountry lines. The Backcountry Technology allows the binding to be converted from ski to walk mode with the quick flick of a switch, while a three-position climbing aid lets you adjust the heel riser between three positions to get the right angle for the slope you're climbing. The integrated anti-ice rail on the top of the toe-piece allows you to scrape ice and snow off the sole of your boot before stepping into the binding, making the Baron EPF right at home in sub-freezing high alpine terrain.

  • Frame-style touring binding gets you to the top and shreds the descent
  • 0°, 7°, and 13° climbing positions let you maneuver various terrain
  • Full DIN capabilities release just like your favorite alpine binding
  • A midweight frame binding from Marker, the Baron shaves some weight
  • Item #MRKZ04K

Used it in resorts as well as tours. I definitely wouldn't recommend this for longer hikes 2+ miles as it's pretty heavy and given the pivot in walk mode is further away from your toes it always gave me blisters on my heels. I don't have this problem using the same boot when touring in my Shift bindings. The downhill performance is really good, it has a good elastic travel before releasing which is super nice if you are a more aggressive skier (e.g. I can do a nose butter in this without worrying about releasing whereas for the same din setting the Shift will release)
