Fear not friends! Marker has heard your pleas for a lower adjustable lateral release value, a lower vertical release, all the while keeping your concerns about weight and ski performance. The Alpinist 8 binding is very user friendly and can hold up to a great deal of flex from your skis without release. Like the other Alpinists, the heel piece sits snug against the back of your boot allowing for a more elasticity which equals a more consistent release and better retention. The Alpinist 8 is very similar to the Alpinist 9 and 12 in that it a flat mode, two easy to use risers, and an adjustable heel track. If you want to ski at more human release values and want the most current technology in binding safety the Marker Alpinist 8 could be your new binding.

  • Gapless heel just like the Alpinist 9 for release value consistency.
  • Removable brake widths of 90mm, 105mm, and 115mm.
  • New adjustable lateral release spring, allowing for 3-8 release values.
  • Still has that great integrated crampon receptor for Marker crampons.
  • Boot sole adjustment is 15mm of adjustable length.
  • Featuring a carbon-reinforced pin toe for security.
  • Offers a flat-on-ski mode for those flat jaunts and meadow skipping.
  • Anti-ice pads are placed under the toe and heel to keep snow and ice from building up.
