Originally a breakthrough in the binding market, the Marker King Pin 10 AT binding was the first to combine a touring-specific tech toe with an alpine-style heel. Now a few years into production, Marker has tweaked its design a little while remaining at the forefront of what is a new direction of bindings. As more and more skiers push themselves inside and outside the resort, they continue to turn to the Kingpin as a trusty and versatile tool for getting where they need to go and doing what they want to do. The most obvious difference in the King Pin when compared to an alpine binding is the toe piece. It uses a tech two which sports two spring-loaded pins to secure your boot, has a locking ski/walk switch, and features adjustable boot stops for easy step-in. The differences are in the 38mm wide mounting pattern for efficient power transfer on wide skis, and the spring configuration which uses Marker's Six Pack setup to provide greater energy absorption and contact pressure than a four-spring setup. This technology reduces unwanted release and gives you a smoother ride as you pop off pillows, rip though trees, or spin off of a backcountry jump. If your ventures start to feel a little more like mountaineering there is also an integrated crampon adapter for stress-free ascents up bulletproof snow or in no-fall zones. To function like a true alpine binding the King Pin's alpine style heel features Marker's XXL Power Transmitter for exceptional edge control, a traditional anti friction device for reliable release and beefy alpine breaks that lock up while you walk. Additionally it's TUV-certified, making it the first tech binding that can actually claim to have real, measurable, and repeatable DIN settings, not just "release values". To further excel on the downhill, the heel piece pivots laterally to provide consistent release and retention, while offering plenty of vertical elasticity as well, so that you have a powerful alpine connection instead of that r...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
