For skiers that are looking for a super lightweight binding but don't want the usual compromises associated with bindings of this weight then the Alpinist pin binding is definitely something that needs to be considered. Made from carbon-reinforced plastic you get an extremely durable and solid feel to the binding, which is surprising considering how minimalist this ski binding is.

This touring pin binding provides you with a surprisingly smooth and inspiring connection to the ski, making it more suited to downhill performance than the weight would suggest. Not only does it have a good ride on the descent but it also features 'Active Length Compensation', a feature that improves the safety of the binding by increasing the consistency of the release values, something not usually associated with super lightweight pin bindings.

A wider mount pattern is used on the Marker Alpinist to give you unparalleled power transmission, something particularly important on the wider skis that are commonplace nowadays. This increased power transmission is backed up by independent reviews that claim it to have noticeably better power transmission than other bindings in this weight category, which instantly dismisses any concerns people may have over the Alpinist having just the two springs. These dual springs have improved strength, meaning you get the benefit of lower weight without any reduction in power transmission.

The Marker Alpinist features easy length adjustment, allowing you to move the binding 7.5mm in either direction, something that is crucial for keen skiers who use more than one pair of boots. With 3 different degrees available for ascending the Marker Alpinist is very versatile, it's well suited to touring over flats and steeper terrain alike.

Skiers that are wanting to invest in a high quality, trustworthy, lightweight pin binding are sure to be impressed by the range of features that the Alpinist boasts with it also coming in lighter than many of the other pin bindings in on the market.
