Strenghts:
Helrett binding on the way up in Åre's cabana or in the hub between Chamonix and Argentierre. Fashion grade 5 on a 5 degree scale. Looks cool on a few feet of planks, and you'll get a glimpse of all directions in the elevator queue.

Weaknesses:
The binding does not hold what it promises. Two pairs of broken, where the skies smoke in the final run. The framework of the binding is too clumsy. To check if it was correct, we took a whole new pair of bindings and put them on DIN 14 (2 steps below max), and then we set up a pair of pants in a heavy DIN test rig. The first tie was tested vertically and the small one in the frame. The other was tested laterally and then the attachment of the binding to the toe part was deformed. In addition, the binding is up to 2.7kg and it also disqualifies it as a top tire.

Summary:
Fashionable bond for light guys with a lot of DIN in mind, or for those who want to be seen. Nothing too heavy guys, serious hard driving or for real peak trips. A pair of jester and an Alpine trecker in the back is better, or if it's all in a tie, a well-appointed Dynafit FT 12 is a better option.

Strenghts:
- Good feeling

Weaknesses:
- box skistoppers

Summary:
Actually a favorite to step in. Feels much more solid than many alpine bindings on the market. The turning function is good and the fact that one managed to combine the properties of an alpine bond with the turbine's turbulence is wonderful.

Although the weight is big, I do not see this as a problem when I only do day trips. The only real disadvantage of the tie is its ski jumpers. They do not hold the skid together properly when assembling them to shoulder the shoulder. In addition, they have a certain tendency to get out of bed while driving, so that they do not get out as they will when the ski is unloading.

The final result will be the following, good binding, best on the market if you ask me. The feeling of an alpine tie with turfukntion appeals to a pretty lazy puder dog like me. Perhaps not the easiest choice to drag up the hill, with a little blood, sweat and tears you can do everything. Top Notch ...

Strenghts:
- A randonne bond that is stable performs.
- Marker sends spare parts for free when bindings break
- A great way to get in touch with the staff at your local sports business.

Weaknesses:
-Hållbarheten
Weighs 60 boilers and have managed to dismantle 3 bindings in three months.
Twice the frowned toe plate has burst.
Once, the metal bit clasped the tie in the Alpine position. This was dangerous ...
Have buddies who broken the toe plate on pimples and less drip after just a couple of days. The fixed price is still taken by a Spaniard who pawned the toe plate by dropping his skis in the elevator queue. Go Nico !!!

- Marker's customer contact
My bonds were destroyed in Austria. Unfortunately, the chips-whistle that they call is not allowed to contact me, but all contact must be made through a store. This shop will definitely pay every time they repair the bonds. This cost does not indicate Mark for. Trying to get in touch with Marker here in Sweden regarding this but they just ignore me. Never again any Marker product if there are alternatives.

Summary:
Must admit that I have not tested any other Randonne bonds and I have driven Marker Baron and do not do the whole season. But the parts that have broken are identical. Believe me, I have compared.
Will probably keep my Baron and have them on my all-purpose ski slopes / ski slopes. They work most often and can be driven even if the toe plate is cracking.

Had it just been for the tie, I would recommend the next generation (because there must be one with a fixed toe plate) to someone who wants a versatile bond. Unfortunately, I can not recomend anything from Marker to the response I received from them. Or lack of treatment. Trea for the tie and one one to Marker will be two more in total.

Strenghts:
+ Allround if everything is completely.

Weaknesses:
- Too much plastic details. The adjustable toe plate has burst - more or less impossible to quickly get spare parts if the binding has been purchased in Sweden, it took me 2 months before I got a new plate. Such exposed items should definitely not be made in plastic and with sharp corners - as done to break.

- Include a screwdriver, the toe plate tends to "move", which leads to a gap between the binding and the joke (even if you adjust the height of the plate and stretch from Marker). Is in my 2nd pair of Duke and the same problem has occurred on both.

Summary:
No, any 3rd pair of Duke does not change if you do not change the weak points of the bond and make sure that there is a spare part now available in Sweden.

Strenghts:
+ A stable bond that can withstand a lot. No thief solution yet (no "thief redemption" nor who wants to leave DNA at the crime scene ?!)
+ Can be used with both Randonné and Alpine pants after a small adjustment with a screwdriver.
+ Wide "bottom plate" that provides extra stability on wide skis.
+ Easy to adjust the header

Weaknesses:
- As you walk up, you can get a bit of luck in the rugged part of hard steep parties (I drive with Alpine pants + Big Daddy, 125mm underneath the foot). This may be better with the randoskor with rubber sole, more friction?
"It can build on some ice if you go further stretches without using the heels, resulting in some scratches and pills when returning the ski mode or lifting the heel height.
"At first, the ski top did not want to fall on me. They chopped the sides of the skis and needed a small pressure to fold out completely. The skis are 125mm below the foot and the stopper should be 130mm. This should not have been a problem! Have bowed them a bit and they work fine.

These three points are so small that they do not drop the score slightly.

Summary:
The only choice for us who likes to keep the skis on our feet on a steep hill at high speed.
I have used them in a season (over 100 days) now on my Atomic Big Daddy and am very satisfied. Both long walks, shorter "beyond the lifts-trips" and the steep hill cave offpiste in mixed snow.
I do not really use the entire DIN scale (mys stand at 10, I: 75kg) maybe it would have been enough with a less powerful variant? The link shown on the top of this page appears to be another link. Something to -09 maybe?

Strenghts:
Sick stable, even more stable than the race bikes, previously driven from fields,
easy-to-use heelshower so you come across how to do it.

Weaknesses:
High .. albeit lower than other edge bindings but myself I like to stand on the boards as you get more snow feeling
The weight goes up but without it, it would be less stable performing and there is nothing I want to sacrifice and it weighs no more than a pair of race bets + treckers.
Twenty-one today, 75kg I screwed them up to 10 from 9, see them again.

Summary:
Good shit, it's important to see if the rest of the bond manufacturers think it's the way we want it.

Strenghts:
Performance performs! Is this really a top tie?
Binding feels quite solid (with a few exceptions).
Unlike other reviewers, I would like to say that the height boost works really well. Easy to adjust with the rod.

Weaknesses:
Importance. Is ok really, but you always want more ...
In hard landings, the adjusting toe plate tends to be mowed down and needs to be adjusted. Illnesses and a problem that just can not be found.

Summary:
Cruel bond that opens up new opportunities. My top ski and all-round ski runs are now exchanged for a single peak / all-round ski run. In combination with a DPS wailer 105, the skis are still a whole kilo lighter than my old B3: or with naxo ...
The duck performs better than any other top tie, but not as good as real Alpine tie.

Strenghts:


Weaknesses:
Went on my mark in the middle days. On the first day of the holiday they broke down.
In the middle of the piste, the big hill in Ramundberget. Rammed and dropped the ski. Do not know if I screamed because I dropped the skid, or if I first waved and dropped the skid in the case. A lot of snow and nothing that I drove on.
Was quite surprised when I saw that there were two pieces of tie in the slope, and the skid slid down with the rest on, but stopped ...
The tie had not loosened in the heel and that was the part that broke down.
There should be no problem getting a new tie, except that I'll have to wait a month. Do not know if I want someone ...
The problem is that the skis broke down when the tie is lost and nobody wants to replace them. Nor are my expenses for rent-skis. Also, break a ligament.

Summary:
So ... No more Mark for me if they do not show any goodwill!

Stop thinking ... BUY

Strenghts:
Terribly stable. This is the bond you have been expecting, a really good alpine bond that can be used to loosen the heel.

Weaknesses:
No

Summary:
There is no need to choose any other link.
