For some, the only thing the Alpinist binding is missing is pre-installed brakes and a longer adjustment track. Voila, meet the Marker Alpinist Long Travel, complete with a longer heel adjustment track and pre-installed brakes of your choosing.

The Alpinist Long Travel is an ultralight ski-touring binding with the features and reliability you’d expect from a company that has made their name in high-performance ski bindings. A stiff, durable, carbon-reinforced toe-piece with a crampon-receptor and anti-icing pads make up the front half. The heel piece is what makes the Alpinist unique though. The zero-gap design uses a spring-loaded track called Dynamic Length Compensation to keep release-performance and ski-performance operating reliably and independently. Spin the whole thing 180° to be greeted with a flat mode and a taller riser for longer approaches and steep skin-tracks. The Alpinist Long Travel uses a removeable brake system, but the moniker “Long Travel” refers to the long adjustment plate that the heel sits on, allowing for maximum boot compatibility. Marker’s Alpinist is an impressive all-around offering that’ll do just about everything except for weigh you down.

  • Dynamic Length Compensation keeps the heel flush with the boot, reducing release-value fluctuation during ski-flex.
  • Flat mode and two risers adapt to the oncoming terrain.
  • Plenty of boot-sole adjustment on the demo-length heel track.
  • Anti-icing pads help keep dirty snow from clogging up your bindings.
  • Lateral release value adjustment from 4-9 or 6-12 depending on the version.
  • Vertical release value is fixed with swappable U-Springs (High, Medium, Low)*.
  • Included crampon receptor is compatible with Marker’s PinTech ski crampons.
  • Removable brakes are swappable if you change ski widths.

* The "9" version comes with the Medium U-spring while the "12" vincludes the High version. Low is available separately.
