Duke PT 12 Alpine Touring Binding
The Marker Duke PT 12 premieres an all-new binding design that's compatible with ski boots for backcountry touring and resort riding. It has the look and feel of a hardcore freeride binding, but part of the toe piece removes to reveal tech pins for backcountry boots. The detachable toe piece is compatible with alpine ski boots, and it automatically locks onto the binding with four points, including the two tech pins. Both the toe piece and heel offer a 12 DIN for a solid performance in and out of the resort. The burly heel locks back in touring mode, and there's a single heel riser to assist on steep skin tracks. Marker made the binding with magnesium for long-lasting durability, and there's an anti-ice rail to help you get ice off your boots.

Don't buy - Fatally flawed design
- I've used it several times
- 6' 1"
As you'll find with a ton of other reviews here and on other sites, I used the binding three times before the toe lever shearing off entirely, leaving my toe locked in and in touring mode at the top of the Park City ridgeline. Marker, please just issue a recall with these and replace this lever with one made of metal. The idea and the binding are great, but this one critical piece breaking renders the whole binding completely useless.

Toe piece lever fatal flaw
Like many other people, my first time touring with these bindings I had my toe piece lever shear off in my hand putting it into your mode. They are using cheap materials and then claiming it?s a beefy binding. Do not buy these bindings. They will get you into serious trouble out in the backcountry. Completely useless for touring.

Great Idea for a Product, Poor Execution
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The touring toe piece lock-out lever broke during my first tour out on these things. I was on a moderate traverse and apparently the force exerted on the pins was too much for the lever, and it sheared clean. Many people are reporting this exact same issue. Downhill performance is great - I'm hoping Marker can beef up this lever and release a fix. Until then, I'd hold off unless you're willing to risk having to boot-pack out if they break on you during a tour.
