    Marker's Kingpin Binding isn't compatible with all short-soled touring boots (check out Marker's website and consult your trusted ski tech for a complete list), but if you're planning on using the Kingpin with boots like the Dynafit TLT 5/6 or Scarpa Aliens, you need to install the Kingpin TLT Heel adapter on your boot for a secure fit.

    Great for the Kingpin, but not for pins

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Easy to mount, and mount well on a wide selection of boots, including the Backland. After they are mounted, they are solid and work well with the Kingpin.



    Here is where things get not so awesome - and kind of unnecessary.



    After removing the stock heel adapter from my Backland, I noticed that the profile of the Kingpin heel adapter (where the pins would engage) is WAY THICKER than my stock one.



    By like double. The stock adapter was probably 5mm in width, where this is easily 10mm or more. Why is it so thick? No idea. The function of this adapter is to increase the profile of the heel, not change the interface of my pin bindings and the boot. Because of the increase in width - the pins on my tech bindings do not go nearly as far into the heel as they did with the stock one, and seem to release way easier.



    If you only plan on using your boot with the kingpin, these will do just fine, but if you wanted to switch back and forth between different skis and bindings, you may run into this problem. I'm not sure if this is the same for other boot models, but i can only assume it would as most heel pin interfaces are not as wide as the kingpin adapter's.



    See PHOTO for width issue I refer to.

    Does the job, easy install

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This extends the rear sole of the Backland, TLT and others so that they are long enough to work with the Kingpin binding. Just remove the stock tech insert (keep the screw) and replace it with the adapter. I used a small drill bit to start the holes for the screws on the side and they went in without a hitch.

    This adapter will work with all of the above boots! Contact me directly with any questions on the Marker Kingpins.
