Long lines, crowded parking lots, boring terrain, tracked out snow, and expensive lift tickets are common reasons to avoid ski resorts. Despite these drawbacks, the ease of chairlift skiing often entices skiers to partake of the lift-serviced goods from time to time. When the inevitable boredom sets in, locals and determined adventurers set out to find the small pockets of wild side-country that reside just outside the boundary ropes. The reworked Marker Kingpin M-Werks 12 makes accessing these stashes easier than ever by linking the touring capabilities of a tech toe to the downhill reliability of an alpine heel. This updated Kingpin had a whole bunch of carbon slapped on both the toe and heel, and was given ergonomic ski/walk levers and ergonomic climbing aids that better match your natural stride. For years, Kingpin bindings have been opening up the sidecountry to resort skiers. Now, that further accessibility is available in an even lighter and more user-friendly package, with the Marker Kingpin M-Werks 12.

  • Carbon reinforcement in the toe and heel cut weight, allowing you to tour farther and easier than with the heavier Kingpin models.
  • Alpine-style heel clamp offers noticeably higher vertical elasticity as compared to pin-style heels, great for handling bumps.
  • Marker widened the base of this binding, making for more power transfer that improves downhill performance.
  • The ski/walk lever now has a neat sideways lever arm, making transitioning easier.
  • Heel risers at 0, 7, and 13 degrees make uphill travel more comfortable.
  • ISO 9523 (AT) boot compatible.
