We all came to love the Kingpin for combining the alpine quality binding in a touring package. The only area the Kingpin fell short in was weight. It was not an ideal piece of equipment for long extended tours and full day missions in the backcountry. The 650 grams was a bit much for summiting spring peaks and deep backcountry missions.
Marker was ready to take on the challenge and create a 245 gram binding that will rapidly change how you see a tech bindings capability. competing with the weight of the ultra light touring bindings, the Alpinist 9 has a DIN rating up to 9 and allows for a lateral release value associated with traditional bindings on the market. Given the Alpinists design, Marker has entered the lightweight touring world with a binding that will be safe and secure for what ever condition you are in.
A moderately wide drill pattern allows for a secured and durable heel placement that won't bust you or your ski away from the binding in high speeds or tight turns. So, if you are looking to fulfill your next backcountry mission where weight is a definite factor.
