MARKER ALPINIST 8

 


The ultralight Alpinist 8 insert binding (245g without ski stopper) is optimized for lighter hikers, especially women. The exclusive softer spring in the heel allows the binding to be inserted easily and reduces DIN values ​​to 3-8. Other than that, the Alpinist 8 is identical to the 10 and 12 models. It offers active length compensation when the ski flexes. Which brings a remarkable transmission of power downhill, a feeling close to an alpine binding. This binding will be suitable for all types of touring skis thanks to the 38 mm wide drilling template. The carbon-reinforced toe piece provides considerable rigidity and integrated elastomer pads provide good ice protection and a comfortable fit. For the heel piece and the heel lifts, 2 options are available to you to find the positions 0°, 5° and 9°; - Either you fold the shim over the inserts, and you get a 5° shim. Arrived at the top, you will only have to fold down the hold and ski directly. ; - Either you turn the heel piece: and straighten the wedge at the top: 0° position, and with the stick, you can fold it down to have a wedge at 9° easily.
