To use the Marker Kingpin bindings with boots that have shallow heel welts, you'll need this adapter. Four screws drill into your boot heel and hold it into place, adding only a few grams and making your lightweight boot compatible with this powerful pin tech/alpine hybrid binding. If you have any questions or are unsure about whether or not your boot requires this adaptor to fit the Kingpin M-Werks, feel free to email or call us and we will do our best to help you sort out what you should do.
Questions & Reviews
Do I need an adapter for this? If so, will the Marker Kingpin adapter work, or do I need another brand?
Unfortunately, the Marker Kingpin Boot Adapter will not work with the Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour, due to the fact that it has a Masterstep Tech insert.
Additionally, According to Dynafit, the Hoji Pro Tour is not compatible with a similar binding, the Marker Kingpin. According to Fritschi, the Hoji Pro Tour is compatible with the Fritschi Tecton without an adapter. Using this combination will be at your discretion.
I have the marker kingpin 10 bindings and dynafit hoji PX boots. Do I need this adapter to use them together?
According to Marker, that binding will work with a Hoji PX without a Kingpin Adapter. However, that boot does not have a full heel welt, and we have been unable to test the compatibility to confirm. Furthermore, Dynafit states that this binding does not work with the Hoji PX Boot. Therefore, it would be at your discretion to use this combination.
One final thing to mention, the Kingpin Adapter will not work with a Hoji PX because it has a Masterstep Tech insert.
Marker says its for the TLT 5 & 6, but doesn't mention the TLT 7. Looks like the heel welts are pretty shallow on the 7's too.
Does last years Hoji fall into the same category as the Vulcan, meaning no significant heel hold problems with Kingpin without an adapter?
I measured the heel ledge is shorter on my Viulcans than my Maestrale boots.
Thanks for your insights.
TLT series boots, not their more freeride-oriented offerings.
