The Curated Take

The Duke PT is definitely a hybrid touring binding leaning much more towards the downhill than the up. I would recommend this over a Kingpin or ATK high DIN pin binding for those prioritizing downhill performance and alpine skiing. As far as downsides go, only having the one 10-degree riser was not as large of an issue as I expected it to be. There were definitely some stepper kick turns; having a second riser would've helped with it, but it just takes getting used to. The more noticeable issue was the 100 & 125 mm brake widths. This binding is perfect for the 110-120 underfoot ski, but the lack of a 115 brake means you are forced to bend the brakes or drag the 125 brake in your turns.

Being able to remove the toe piece on the uphill does really help with the weight distribution of the binding more than it helps with overall weight. With the toepiece attached, you can find your kick turns not falling evenly. Overall, the downhill performance far outweighs the weight of shorter tours or a one-ski-quiver setup.

Ideal for
  • Sidecountry skiing
  • Powder touring setups
  • One ski quiver
Not ideal for
  • Brakes tend to lightly drag through carving turns
  • Binding weight is noticeable on the uphill and on lighter skis

The Duke PT 16 (DIN 6-16) is Royal Family´s top model and sets another milestone. It combines the superior functionality and downhill performance of a Jester with comfortable uphill properties of a pin binding. An absolute highlight is the innovative Ride & Hike toe. For walking mode the upper part is simply unlocked and tilted forward, uncovering the pin binding. To save swing weight the upper jaw part can be taken off and stored in the rucksack. The multi functional Lock & Walk unit automatically locks the brakes and provides a 10° climbing aid. For downhill mode the front jaw section is clicked back onto the base plate being quadruple secured by the Auto Quad Lock technology. Now the toe piece works just like an alpine toe with all of its advantages! The heel is the latest generation of Interpivot 3 freeride heels with lightweight magnesium housing and improved stiffness. The low height of 24 mm allows for direct power transmission and fast edge changes. Thanks to Multinorm all Duke PT are compatible to alpine, touring and GripWalk boots.

I love this binding for when I want to have the utmost downhill performance, but I need to tour uphill to get to where I want to go. This binding is perfect for those who want alpine bindings for the downhill in and out of the resort. While it is a little bit heavier on the uphill, the pin tech... Read more
Ideal for
  • Backcountry touring when downhill performance is just as important as the uphill capability
  • Those who want one ski for backcountry and resort

  • Heavy for the uphill compared to other touring bindings
  • Don't lose the toe piece

So Helpful!
5 /5
I've been out of the ski market for so long that I had no idea there were so many subtle, but very distinct differences in equipment. Thomas almost instantly responded any time I had a question or wanted a clarification. Decision paralysis or confusion would surely have taken over if not for Thomas's help. Thank you!

Austin was amazing as always
5 /5
It's my 2nd time working with Austin - originally he had picked a snowboard out for my son that has worked out super well. Now he helped me pick out a new board for myself after using the same second hand ill-fitted one I had for 10 years. Austin was super responsive throughout the whole process, super enthusiastic, and had a lot of knowledge to share with regards to his suggestions. I could tell that all of his picks for me were well thought out and has made me super excited about trying out the Solomon Assassin I ended up purchasing.

Mariah is amazing!
5 /5
Coming into this, I do not have a lot of knowledge on skiing equipment and neither do my family or friends. Mariah helped me by being super knowledgeable, answering all of my questions, and addressing all of my concerns. She is very quick with her responses and will provide you with an array of options that are tailored to your preferences. I appreciate that she took time to discuss the details with me. I would highly recommend her services to my family, friends, and anyone looking to buy ski equipment! She is the best! :)
