With the Alpinist, Marker delivers its lightest-ever touring binding and re-defines the ratio of weight to performance.  At 490 grams per pair, it takes the traditional PinTech design and adds functionality with 0°, 5° and 9° climbing aid positions.  The toe piece has integrated elastomers that serve as a visual aid and allow for easy stepping in, as well as carbon reinforced components and a dual spring for maximum stiffness.  The heel features a fixed upward release and an adjustable lateral release function.  The anti-ice pads in both the toe and heel help prevent icing as well. And a wider 38mm binding screw hole pattern allows for phenomenal power transfer for such a minimalist and lightweight offering.  

Marker has introduced the ISI toe, which stands for 'Intuitive Step In' in all the Alpinist and Kingpin models.  A wider platform allows for greater contact area when stepping in.  Less force is required to lock into the toe as well.  And, now there's a rubber stop pad to aid in aligning and stopping your boot in the optimal spot.
