The freeride binding game has been fully reimagined. With the Marker Duke PT 16, sacrificing downhill performance for touring efficiency is a thing of the past. The new Ride & Hike toe piece was designed with this in mind. When you're ready to wander in search of your next line, the main body of the toe pice flips forward to reveal a tech toe. It's also full removable and can be stored in your pack while touring to save an extra 300 grams of weight per foot. When you're ready to go, it reattches in a matter of seconds. Step into the binding and the Auto Quad Lock design locks the toe piece on at four different points. Sole ID technology enables these bindings to work with any boot sole norm on the market. At the back end, Marker have used the same Inter Pivot 3 Freeride heel that has been developed for the new Griffon and Jester bindings. With best in class elasticity and a strong magnesium housing, it won't let you down. The walk mode is a simple toggle between neutral and 10º to make any tour as easy as possible. This isn't just a binding that does a little bit of everything. The Duke PT 16 was built for athletes and hardcore freeride enthusiasts that demand the best of both worlds.
