Before groms graduate to adult bindings, they need a binding that's strong enough to allow them to progress while still allowing necessary release. Enter the Marker Free 8 Ski Bindings. Taking nods from the adult version, the Free 8 features a sliding AFD, compact heel, and Two Linkage Toe. It's designed to keep progressing skiers locked in as they start stepping off the groomers and keying up higher speeds.
2-Linkage Toe – The next level of improvement for the tried-and-tested two linkage toe system. Light, robust, full side and rear release with improved DIN range. The release springs, triggered by the sole bracket, uses the clever TLT system to provide rear release without taking up extra space or adding extra weight.
Gliding AFD – All Marker bindings (except the Jester Pro) are equipped with a moveable AFD (Anti Friction Device), allowing a precise release unhindered by dirt, snow, and ice buildup. The type of AFD is matched to the skier type, ensuring perfect functionality from racing to junior and even alpine touring.
Compact 3 Heel – The Compact Heel offers the perfect mix of great design, light weight, and excellent functionality. This heel is perfect for beginners and occasional skiers thanks to exacting release properties and attractive pricing.
