The Marker Jester 16 ID bindings were newly redesigned to fit perfectly in the Marker Royal Family collection for the 2023 season. It sits midway between the Marker Griffon 13 and the Marker Jester 18. If the Griffon 13 is too little, and the Jester 18 seems like overkill, the extraordinary feel and look of the Jester 16 will be a good fit. Weight has been minimized, but not at the expense of that Jester bombproof feel. It is a viable big mountain and "sendy" binding option for more aggressive skiers.

Key Features:

  • Anti-Ice Rail on Toe – The bottom of the boot can be scraped on the toe piece to knock off ice before clicking in.
  • Sole ID Plate – The height-adjustable gliding plate is compatible with alpine, touring, and GripWalk boot soles.
  • Inner Pivot Freeride Heel – This is the third and newest generation of Marker Heel Pieces, built to improve power transmission, step-in comfort, and energy absorption when skiing.

Henry Kvietok owns this product
I have personally used the Marker Jester 16 bindings for the last 5 years on my resort skis. I ski very hard and have a 10 DIN. Even though I am not at the high end of the binding (16 DIN), I find that having the high quality build of a higher DIN binding gives me confidence in the release... Read more
Ideal for
  • These bindings have a mostly metal construction which makes them very durable.
  • With a DIN range up to 16, these things are ready to send big cliffs and handle whatever is thrown at them
  • Solid releases. I have had multiple gnarly double ejection falls and they released as they should.
Not ideal for
  • Some components are not the absolute highest end- look to the Jester 18 Pro for peak performance.
  • Heavy binding. Not designed for alpine touring.

The Marker Jester 16 ID is a great binding for Advanced and Expert level skiers and/or skiers over 175lbs. The Jester is built to be tough, handle anything that's thrown at it, and to release reliably when it needs to. More importantly, it won't release when it isn't supposed to. I've been skiing Marker's Jester 16 ID for over 10 years... Read more
Ideal for
  • Boot Compatibility: This binding fits just about any boot
  • Durability: This binding has more metal components than many other bindings
  • Super Reliable Release: This binding has released every time I've needed to, and never released when it shouldn't have
Not ideal for
  • Heavy: Nothing crazy, but lighter options are out there

Jared D owns this product
I have a pair of these mounted on my groomer skis, Volkl Kendos, so I mainly ski these bindings on trail. Off trail I tend to opt for Look Pivots since I really value the rotating heel and ability to side release. That being said, if you are looking for a secure and stable binding, this is a great option.... Read more
Ideal for
  • Very secure feeling binding
  • Use of metal makes the binding feel very durable (especially compared to Griffons)
  • Great power transfer to ski
Not ideal for
  • Heel makes it a bit hard to click out

It was a pleasure working with Henry!
5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.
