Alpinist 9 Long Travel AT Binding - Marker

Please contact us if ordering Marker bindings for delivery to the USA. The price for the Marker Alpinist 9 Long Travel is $479.00 USD

The Alpinists are Marker's first lightweight insert bindings. Announced to the world with lots of fanfare at the February ISPO trade show, the Alpinists have an interesting minimalist design and competitive price.

Available with a choice of 2 DIN settings, the Alpinist weighs only 245 g / ski.
With a relatively wide hole 38 mm hole drill pattern the Alpinist has sufficiently wide footprint for good power transfer and we'd reommend these bindings for skis up to 115 mm at the waist.
The toe-piece has a carbon-reinforced baseplate, anti-ice pads while elastomer "towers" make step-in easier.
To provide reliable release and control, the heel unit contains a small recoil spring for active length compensation.

The Alpinist heel unit has climbing aids with a choice of 0°, 5° and 9° angle for comfortable climbing.
On the ascent changing between climbing modes is easy and the three climbing heel positions are well designed, with a choice of flat, a low "race" position with a 5° ramp which covers the inserts without turning the heel unit, while turning the heel unit gives the  3rd high position with 9° ramp.
In use the “race” position will be used most and the simplicity of using this without having to turn the heel unit is well thought out.
Switching between hike and ride mode is simple and easy. 
If you’ll be using ski brakes then swapping between ski and walk modes takes a little longer but is still OK.
Moving from walk to ski mode is achieved by pulling the lever at the back of the heel unit to deploy the ski brakes.
You do need to remove boots from the bindings to easily swap between modes but in practice this is not an issue -  most skiers will be doing this anyway to remove or add skins.

Ski crampons are available four widths, 80, 90, 105 and 120 mm.
Attaching them to the skis is easy, using the same attachment method as the industry standard Dynafit crampons, sliding into the crampon slot from the side.

Marker have given the Alpinists adjustable lateral release (4-9 or 6-12) while the frontal release is fixed at 8 DIN by the use of lightweight "U" springs, as used on most race bindings.
Should you require weaker or stronger release then "U" springs with 6 DIN or 10 DIN are available as accesories.
These "U" springs do wear faster than independent pins as used on the Dynafit Speed and Plum Guide models, so should be checked from time to time for wear.

The Alpinists are available in four versions this winter.
The Alpinist 9 and 12 do not have ski brakes and do not come supplied with a leash, which should be bought separately.
The Alpinist 9 and 12 Long Travel have an additional lightweight heel plate that gives 30 mm boot adjustment and come supplied with brakes, available in widths of 90, 105 and 115 mm.
