We go to 13! If you think the lighter Kingpin's innovative hybrid step-in heel needs even better retention, imagine stiffer springs pinning your foot to your ski with the power transfer of an alpine race binding. In fact, the pintech toe has even less play than the burliest alpine bindings, with more consideration for a safe and consistent release than has been seen in the touring world. Their original touring bindings pushed the limits of strength and boot retention at the price of weight, but now with their first look at a pintech binding, the Kingpin really is the full package. At just 650 grams (without brake) the Kingpin is competitive with the lightest touring bindings on the market. Get ready for a binding that sacrifices nothing inbounds and will be the perfect all-around weapon in the big mountains of the backcountry.

A touring binding from Marker that doesn't weigh 18 lbs. but still has the bombproof construction that Marker is known for. Pretty cool having a pin toe and alpine heel, just in case you haven't heard about this Kingpin feature.
