This freeride-style binding with a DIN range of 4.0 - 13.0 makes this the perfect binding for a hard-charging, all-mountain skier. The Marker's Sole.ID technology used in this binding makes it capable of accommodating both touring and alpine boot soles for the best of both worlds. Another awesome feature of this binding is Marker's Triple Pivot Elite Toe technology that combines a horizontally placed spring in the toe with a slightly inclined toe plate to create improved energy absorption to minimize early or accidental release. And last, but certainly not least, the large toe plate makes for superb transfer of power.

This is one of the most skied, tested and top-performing bindings out there. Marker's designs are loved by all types of skiers. This is a lighter and lower DIN version of the Jester, retaining most of the design and safety functionality. This binding will fit Alpine, Touring and GripWalk soled boots.

Tyrolia Attack2 11 Ski Bindings · 2021

$169.00

A solid, everyday use binding. This binding is meant for hard charging and having fun. The toe plate is height-adjustable and will work with almost any boot. The DIN rating is up to 11, which is more than enough for an everyday binding.

These are a standard alpine binding, great for resort riding. They're adjustable to fit different boot soles, with a spring-loaded heel for easy entry and pivoting wings on the toe for consistent and easy release when needed.

Look Pivot 12 Ski Bindings · 2021

These are the cream of the crop. It has a unique design where the heel piece rotates which helps ensure a smooth release when your ski needs to pop off! These things save knees! They tend to be a little heavier and are very durable.

Superior energy transmission with the seven points of contact, superior performance, and superior prevention of lower leg injuries. This binding has lots of elasticity to prevent pre-releases, and provides a very comfortable ride.

Increased safety due to the fully turnable heel. Due to the all metal construction of these bindings, durability is another area that these boots excel.

100% the best binding on the market. If you can spare the extra money, these are the way to go for sure. The heel piece rotates 360 degrees to allow for a smooth release from the binding which drastically cuts down on knee injuries.

Look Pivot bindings are specifically designed to make sure that your knees survive even the worst falls. Due to their rotating nature at the heal, they are sure to pop out as soon as your leg starts to twist in a concerning way.

Heavier option but skis just like a traditional alpine binding! The weight is on the foot when hiking which is a bit of a bummer, but easy to use!

Lower cost option to get into touring while not sacrificing too much on the way down.
