The Marker Duke PT 11 blends full-on alpine performance on the downhill with touring performance for the skin up. Marker uses their tried and true alpine heel pieces to lock you in for the descent, with a toe piece design that swaps between uphill and downhill. Remove the alpine toe piece to reveal a tech/pin style toe piece for easy uphill travel. When you’re ready for the downhill, just snap the toe piece back into place and you’re ready to shred. It’s a system that becomes second nature with very little practice, and it delivers unparalleled versatility. For skiers who spend most of their time at the resort, but need a do-it-all binding for backcountry skiing, the Duke PT delivers the ideal blend of both. The Marker Duke PT 11 offers lightweight or more conservative skiers a binding that is reliable and functional in both the backcountry and resorts, while offering a lower DIN setting. Heavier or more aggressive skiers should check out the Marker Duke PT 13 or 16 for higher DIN release ranges.
