The Curated Take
The Marker Kingpin is a wonderful option for someone who is looking to split their time between the backcountry and resort. The Kingpin is fully ISO/DIN certified binding and similar to the Salomon/Atomic Shift, but roughly 100 grams lighter. Similar to the Shift binding, the Kingpin wouldn't be the best option for someone strictly looking to tour.
- Its a half tech/half alpine binding
- Fully DIN/ISO certified
- Excellent downhill energy transfer
- Not a true tech binding, hence pretty heavy compared to other true tech bindings

The lightweight ISI pin toe piece combined with an alpine heel piece including a 0°/7°/13° climbing aid makes it very easy to walk on any terrain and ensures great descents with outstanding performance and top-level release functionality.
