The Curated Take

Joshua Brower, Ski Expert
By the Expert Community

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.

Ideal for
  • Its a half tech/half alpine binding
  • Fully DIN/ISO certified
  • Excellent downhill energy transfer
Not ideal for
  • Not a true tech binding, hence pretty heavy compared to other true tech bindings

Soren provided excellent recommendations tailored to my needs and my budget, I can not recommend him highly enough. Knowledgeable, friendly, professional, no upselling/pressure tactics. Soren is a great choice for both beginner and expert skiers looking for the right equipment.

I have been scouring the internet and every blog I could find to figure out what type of skis were right for me- and Nate helped me more during our single interaction than I've been able to help myself over the better part of a year. I can't thank him enough for clarifying and simplifying this process for me- and he even gave me other gear recommendations for when I'm ready in the future. 17/10 would recommend any day!

Ben was super helpful and responsive throughout my purchasing process. I've been in the market for a couple of months and honestly didn't know where to begin since I have never purchased or owned skis before. Ben was very knowledgeable, had great recommendations, and was very responsive throughout the process.

Rarely do you get such a rapid response if they even have a true expert available to the consumer. If I didn't already have a pair of the same skis I would have definitely looked at some of his suggestions. Like that Curated has good quality merchandise and some inventory to back it up! Thanks for your help Leo and I will be sure to shop with Curated again.
