With decades of alpine binding production and a stout following, Marker entered the pool of tech-bindings with a glorious half-gainer. With several models to choose from, the Marker Alpinist 10 nestles itself smack dab between the lower releasing 8 and the higher 12 so you can choose the value range best suited for your skill level and style of skiing. With a gapless heel, you will have the shock-absorption and consistent release one craves from their alpine skiing days (years). With a flat mode, two risers, and 15mm of heel adjustment Marker has made your dive into a lightweight binding not much of a sacrifice. If you crave smooth skiing and simple operation then the Marker Alpinist 10 deserves to be high on your list.

  • Zero gap heel for a smooth skiing experience and more consistent release.
  • Optional brakes come in 90mm, 105mm, and 115mm widths.
  • Lateral release values from 4-10 allow you to find your sweet spot.
  • 15mm of heel adjustment leaves room for your other boot.
  • Two riser positions so that when the going gets steep, you keep going.
  • Race-inspired heel flap promotes faster transitions to get that extra lap in.
  • Included, removable receptor allows you to add crampons for traction.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Ben
The 8/10/12 model numbers roughly correspond to DIN settings, right? I go with ~8 on my alpine skis, so the Alpinist 8 or 10 would be reasonable?
Answer from Ian C
Hey Ben! The numbers roughly correspond to release values. Each model comes with adjustable lateral and fixed vertical release settings.

With the Alpinist 10, you would come in a little below its fixed vertical release value, so I might lean towards the Alpinist 8.
