Better Than THE BEST MADE IN GERMANY For over 80 years, every ski leaving our main production facility in Straubing has been manufactured based on the strictest technical, sporty and ecological standards. Over all of these years, our team of developers and production experts has assembled such a broad pool of experience that these factors are not viewed as limitations, but rather as inviting them to keep developing ever better products. And their success shows that they’re right. What will we be seeing in 12/13? Lighter, faster, better? It sounds like a standard marketing promise, but in truth it’s precisely the next logical step for ski design. This time the focus for optimization was the ski and binding system, including the integration of high-quality materials like Carbon and Aramid in the ski’s frame and nitrogen in the binding components. The end result: weight reductions of up to 20%. Less weight – more performance Or more simply better maneuverability, better handling, more comfort, less exhaustion and, in the end, more fun! While skis have gotten wider and longer in recent years, we’ve successfully maintained the same weights as last year, and for many models have even managed significant reductions!

04

Athletic skiers benefit from the added maneuverability and agility that weight-optimized skis provide. Less ambitious skiers can enjoy easier handling, greater comfort and less exhaustion. Weight-optimized skis react quicker across all ability levels, and in this way contribute to a reduction in body stresses. V-Werks – classy, light and unsurpassed! Extremely agile, super sporty and above all unbelievably light: We are proud to present V-WERKS, the most uncompromising approach ever to producing skis. This is high-tech par excellence, introduced in the CODE and RTM lines. If extreme variability, edge grip, maneuverability and low weights are a must, then look no further! The Essence of Women’s skiing When we introduced Bio-Logic, we gave a new face to the world of women’s skiing. Tests, scientific experiments and studies helped us learn how to make significant reductions in peak stresses. Now comes the next evolutionary step: BioLogic xtraLIGHT, which uses significantly reduced weight and a rocker shape to bring the technology to a whole new level. Also in the starting blocks: ESSENZA, the new women’s collection for all levels of ambition and expectations. Less exertion, less stress, better performance and even more skiing fun!

Skiing is a technical sport. Part of this certainly involves the movements of the skier, but it also applies just as much – and probably even more – to the production of the ski. The more refined the manufacturing process, the more sophisticated the engineering, the greater the volume of technology and precision melded together into the design, and the lighter the ski – the easier it is for the skier to harness all that technology for a great day on the slopes.

Frontside to backside From the circus of the alpine World Cup to extreme freeriding in Alaska, from bunny slopes to 50° chutes – the world of skiing encompasses an incredibly broad spectrum of challenges. Völkl uses a variety of different technologies to meet them all. Each individual construction is put through countless test runs prior to serial production. You won’t find us jumping on the bandwagon and trying to ride the coattails of the latest fad. We pursue technologies that bring real improvements to the ski’s performance and thereby empower the skier.

The fine mix of Carbon, Aramid and »Powered by Titanium« permits high precision edge grip and fastreacting skiing performance with unparalleled ease. This XTD Transmission (Sidewall) construction is engineered in the binding area using hollow carbon shells.

The highly rigid carbon is lightweight but delivers more direct edge grip in the binding area – right in the area where the greatest pressure is applied. Aramid is used at the tip and tail to replace the Titanal belt. The material is lighter yet provides comparable shock absorption for the exposed zones of the ski – the perfect use for a material so effective at absorbing energy that it is used in bulletproof vests. The fiber structure of Aramid also gives the wider tip and tail zones of the ski greater torsional stability, which contributes to better edge grip. V-Werks is the ultimate upgrade. For the upcoming season, Völkl is kicking off with special Code Speedwall and RTM 84 V-Werks editions.

01_BIO-LOGIC FLEX The ski’s flex has been adjusted to the special characteristics of BIO-LOGIC GEOMETRY and STANCE. The result is an even more flexible, energy-saving and yet still sporty performance. Turn after turn flows more smoothly and harmoniously.

BIO-LOGIC

BIO-LOGIC ® xtraLIGHT Better dynamics, less exertion, easier turns and better protection for the knee joint - that’s BIO-LOGIC. It’s now available exclusively in our new Essenza women’s collection. The impetus to develop the Bio-Logic technology came through a study that proved that women skiers, and female athletes in general, suffer a disproportionately high number of knee injuries compared with men. Not because women ski differently, but rather because their anatomy reacts more sensitively to physical stress. The unique performance of this collection is

02_BIO-LOGIC STANCE The toe area is slightly raised in comparison to the heel, making turn initiation easier. First and foremost, this creates a more dynamic posture with better knee flex angles. The result is a highly efficient, less tiring skiing feel. The hamstring muscle is more active, resulting in the utilization of the various knee-stabilizing muscle groups for improved security.

built with the interplay between ski flex, skier stance and the special geometry of ski models equipped with Bio-Logic technology. Bio-Logic has again been successfully improved for the coming season. The integration of the tip rocker in combination with sidecuts that have been individually reconfigured for each model, and an extra-light woodcore, reinforce the positive skiing performance of the construction, and noticeably elevate them to an entirely new level for everyone.

03_BIO-LOGIC GEOMETRY Digressive sidecut: The radius in front of the binding is smaller than behind it. Just like a power steering system, this makes quick turns possible and reduces the extreme stresses at the end of a turn. Turning becomes more harmonious and precise.

04_ Bio-Logic WOODCORE xtraLIGHT Originally designed for the high-end V-Werks line, this high-quality, super-light wood core so effectively supports the Bio-Logic construction, through increased maneuverability and reduced stress on the skier, that we decided to integrate it into the Essenza collection as well.

Functionality of a rocker ski

ROCKER

When a skier puts weight on a traditional cambered ski, the entire length of the ski contacts the slope. On a rocker ski only the middle section makes contact when the ski is flat. The term rocker refers solely to the curve of the ski and the reverse camber that results from it. Unlike a traditionally cambered ski, the rocker ski is not ‘tensioned’ at all. From a technical point of view, the rocker is in fact really a reverse camber. But that’s only half the story. For top performance a reverse camber ski needs adjustments to the construction, sidecut and binding position. The extent of the rocker and type also play a major role in performance and skier experience. As you can imagine a tip rocker ski with 2-3 mm of early rise tip will have very different characteristics compared to a full rocker model with 20 mm

Construction

ROCKER

The rocker had its origins in off-piste skiing, but when the overall construction has been harmonized properly in terms of flex and sidecut, it contributes plenty of energy to skiing on groomed slopes as well. When used properly, rockers can do more than just master deep, soft snow. They also – or perhaps: especially – deliver a complete new on-piste skiing experience and significantly extend the range and versatility of a range of skis.

CAMBER 14

A skilled skier, more used to the counter pressure of a traditional camber ski, may be intrigued at how much easier it is to initiate turns. The edge actually adapts to the environment. The greater the edge angle and the steeper the carving angle, the longer the effective edge angle, which provides increased stability and grip.

Use of ROCKER and CAMBER on- and off-piste

ROCKER VS. CAMBER Rocker or camber? It‘s a question that seems destined to fuel passionate debate for some time to come. As far as we‘re concerned the answer isn‘t just simple, it‘s right under our noses: BOTH! Each construction style has the upper hand in certain situations and for certain skiers and, when properly integrated into the design, not only extend the ski‘s range but also open the door to even more fun. At Völkl it‘s clear that there‘s no reason to ignore any good design.

of tip and tail rise. A cambered ski is bent “into shape” by the weight of the skier, forming an arc that dictates the ski’s ideal turning radius. The rockered ski is already formed in the curved shape, making turns easier to initiate as there is no need to first flex-load the ski into shape. This is a decisive benefit for less experienced skiers, as it makes the transition into the edged position significantly smoother.

ROCKER ON-PISTE

On-piste rocker & camber construction By mixing and matching flex properties and sidecuts, the skis can be manufactured in different configurations that offer enormous benefits to skiers of various target groups. The exact harmonization of the rocker shape to its flex and sidecut takes on an enormous importance. From a purely theoretical point of view, it’s entirely possible to take a ski and “just give it a bit more bend.” While

limited in practicality, it would work passably in deep snow. On-piste, though, it would be disastrous. This is why we always fundamentally redesign all of our ski models when they are made in a rocker construction!

Naturally, you’re not going to use a rockered Shiro like a Racetiger, but the construction allows you to follow the exact same lines you’d ski off-piste on prepared terrain as well. The fun and fantastic feel of a freeski is there whatever the conditions. The same is true of our touring skis as well. Those skis in particular demand flawless functionality whatever the snow conditions. And it’s the rocker design that gives them the necessary flexibility range.

Just like in the alpine skiing discipline, the same criteria for selecting a construction applies in the freeski and touring areas. Different constructions predestine the ski for specific situations and target groups. A full rocker shape for alpine situations might have 8 mm of upward bend. A freerider may have double that. The functional principle is the same. Because Völkl freeride and touring skis have to function on hard surfaces as well, we put a great deal of effort into harmonizing the rocker curve with the flex and sidecut so that, just like the alpine skis, they can be used in the greatest possible range of situations.

01_High-precision rocker shape

02_Optimally harmonized flex

A uniformly round arc in the rocker area improves the transfer of power and steering precision. The key factor is avoiding buckling and unharmonious transitions. Our rockers flow with tremendous harmony and precision because the shape isn’t “retrofitted” onto an existing ski, but developed from the first approach and engineering of the new molds.

We conducted intensive tests as far back as 5 years ago on the first Kuro. Hundreds of prototypes later, it’s clear that a ski must be somewhat stiffer in the front part of the rocker zone to attain its quiet ride and stability. “Overflexing” the front of the rocker makes it harder to steer the ski. All rocker skis are subjected to an elaborate individual harmonization of their flex and team rider tests.

A rocker ski tends to require a less pronounced sidecut to carve through a curve than its cambered counterpart. That’s why you can’t simply rebend an existing camber model into a rocker – the flow and precision of the steering is lost. This is also why the new Mantra received a completely new sidecut.

Opposite to a steep bending curve a softer bent (i.e. flatter) tip lets the ski float easier over the snow, instead of pushing it aside. Yet the upward bend is the most important tool in preventing the ski from digging into the snow. A rocker profile achieves both: a softer but longer upward bend results in the same tip height as a normal ski tip, without the danger of sinking into the snow. We test each model for the perfect tip height and bending curve.

RTM 84

RTM

XTD TRANSMISSION sidewall A light but highly stable full rocker shape, paired with an extra wide longitudinal reinforcement above the ski deck. The reinforcement belts are aligned to channel stress toward the outside of the ski. This works with the sidewall construction to prevent chatter and ensure that the necessary pressure is applied to the edges at high speeds.

RTM 80 Xtd dual transmission Like the RTM 84, the RTM 80 reinforced 3D construction channels forces to the edges, but in a less pronounced manner. The major difference between the 80 and the 84 is in the cap, rather than sidewall, construction. This makes this full rocker ski more forgiving and a bit softer in its general ride characteristics, yet it still delivers the necessary power reserves for athletic skiers pushing their limits.

RTM 77 xtd transmission The RTM 77 follows a similar construction philosophy, although the reinforcement is somewhat less pronounced, giving the ski a softer feel. Optimized for ambitious intermediates, the ski’s construction provides the edge pressure needed to rise up to the next level of speed and confidence.

RTM 75 / 75is xtd progressive technology

RTM Constructions 3D technology for rocker skis Thanks to ski constructions harmonized to different ability levels, skiers ranging from beginner to pros can all find their perfect counterpart. The RTM 77, 80 and 84 models have a moderate full rocker, that makes the skis unbelievably agile on and off the slopes. The RTMs nevertheless deliver extreme control, even at higher speed ranges. Thanks to the outstanding power transfer of the iPT

Both the normal [RTM 75] and dual woodcore [RTM 75is] versions have a unique 3D design which stabilizes the front of the ski body and transmits forces toward the ski’s center for a comfortable ride. For a tip rocker construction this translates into the stability needed for higher speeds without making turns any less gentle to initiate. At the end of the turn the classically cambered tail provides a clean arc for the curve to follow. The SENSOR models are also produced using this construction principle.

Wideride binding, the extra width of the RTM 80 and 84 remain nimble and precise yet offer more floatation for transitional snow and the side country. The intermediate range features the three models below, the RTM 75 iS, RTM 75 and RTM 73, each outfitted with a slight tip rocker. The special construction of the ski lets skiers initiate and link turns with exceptional ease, even at rising speeds, helping them gain confidence.

RTM 73 progressive technology Tip rocker meets PROGRESSive Flex - PROGRESSive Technology! The very moderate reinforcement across the edge in the middle zone of the ski delivers a sufficient degree of stability without reducing ease of initiation.

The very moderate reinforcement across the edge in the middle zone of the ski delivers a sufficient degree of stability without making turns any less gentle to initiate. The soft-flexing tail facilitates drift at the end of turn, especially for beginners to low intermediate skiers.

Progressive TECHNOLOGY 01

PROGRESSive Technology uses its own unique concept to counteract this effect: the interplay between PROGRESSive Flex and PROGRESSive Edge allows skiers to initiate turns very gently and with as little energy exertion as possible. However, as the challenges grow and the slopes get steeper, the construction offers enough grip to ensure control along the entire length of the ski. The flextail makes it even easier for skiers to transition out of one turn and initiate the next due to the “rolling” effect of the softer tail.

02

Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that you’re learning too slowly. The first days out on the slopes are especially decisive in determining whether the skier gives up or continues. The better a ski can adapt to this situation, the greater the fun factor and the more likely it is that the skier will make it to the next level. An entry-level ski should behave simply. Yet a ski that is too strongly oriented toward pure entry-level duty is relative limited in how it can be used. As beginners improve, they’ll quickly hit the limits of their skis and will get frustrated.

01_PROGRESSive Flex The cross-section of the ski tapers towards the tail – from thicker edges to a thinner center. The rear section of the ski becomes more flexible, which is particularly beneficial at the end of a turn. The ski accelerates less aggressively out of turns and supports a neutral stance to help prevent the skier from sitting in the proverbial “back seat.” The effect is less effort for better turns.

02_PROGRESSive Edge Völkl’s Progressive Edge technology refers to a tip rocker shape designed especially for novices and intermediates to make the ski easier to turn. The edge “extends” automatically to provide more stability as the owner’s skiing style becomes more advanced, and more pressure is put on the edges in a turn.

POWER SWITCH ® The influence of POWER SWITCH on the ski’s onsnow feel is enormous. It feels just like switching gears in a car, and through its ingenious design it’s just as easy to operate. The faster you can adjust to new situations, the more secure you feel.

POWER SWITCH INDIVIDUAL The only thing closer to custom-made... is customermade! Ski flex tailored precisely and individually to the skier, exclusively from Völkl on the Racetiger PSi and Code PSi!

POWER SWITCH is the design-side answer to this challenge. The skier needs only to make one manual adjustment to adapt the ski to the snow conditions and personal mood – a choice between “cruise,” “dynamic,” and “power.”

Every single skier places unique and personal demands on his gear: weight, age and ability – those are criteria that only a custom-made ski can precisely reflect. At least, that‘s the way it used to be. Now we present the first ski technology that actually approaches tailor-made: POWER SWITCH INDIVIDUAL.

mechanism, which allows on-snow adjustment of the ski to reflect current conditions. Thanks to the new system, the rigidity of the ski can now for the first time be adjusted according to the skier‘s personal physical parameters. The tuning itself is handled by an authorized dealer. A recessed adjustment screw in the tail of the ski allows the specialist to either compress or relax a carbon rod into the ski‘s core.

SPEEDWALL

SPEEDWALL During 80% of any given downhill run, a racer is moving on less than 20% of the base, meaning that 80% of the run is spent on the sidewalls, which are therefore the perfect place to show the Speedwall’s potential. For alpine racing in particular, the development process never ends. Constructions are adjusted by millimeters and changes to ratios are made over and over again. If you look at the top ten racers in any given competition, the differences between the finish times are too small to be recognized by the naked eye. The skiers are just too evenly matched. SPEEDWALL technology was designed to give a decisive advantage:

Extreme edge angles, extremely fast direction changes – the more athletic your skiing style, the more important the sidewall of your ski becomes. We devised an ingenious solution to the problem, one that became a feature of two Racetiger models as well as the Code Speedwall. The trick is not to see the sidewall as a lateral limitation of the ski, but rather as a logical continuation of the running surface. For this reason it’s made of exactly the same material as the base – which means the Speedwall can also be waxed. The benefit for the racer is clear: less friction, more speed! 01

TOURING

SKIN PIN A skin clamping system that’s been reduced to the essentials: Perfect attachment yet extremely simple to use, meaning full functionality without the unnecessary extras! The skin is affixed to the ski’s tip using a built-in pin. One 90-degree rotation and it’s attached. The result is a 100% reliable mount. The system can be checked visually from above, ensuring the touring skier has complete control at all times. In a pinch, the hole in the ski tip can also be used to convert the skis into a rescue toboggan or a sled.

01 Each Völkl skin is perfectly cut for the respective touring ski model.

TOURING TECHNOLOGY The requirements were clear for our touring ski line: top performance and reduced weights without compromising on durability. While Völkl’s lineup of touring skis is already among the lighter representatives on the market in relation to their size, the increased use of carbon and weightoptimized Multi-Layer Woodcore Light cores have,

once again, achieved improvements that ensure the models have no need to shy away from direct comparisons with the competitors and the downhill performance will keep you smiling. The new material mix provides particular support for the collection’s freerider oriented skiing characteristics: power transfer and high rigidity.

02 To apply the skin, push the SKIN PIN through the eyelet from below and “hang” it into the ski.

03 All that’s needed to fix the SKIN PIN and Völkl skin in place is one 90-degree rotation. The skin can now be precisely aligned and adhered.

IDEAL USE This family of skis has a wider range of uses than any other in the Völkl range: The RTM 84 and 80 come with a tip width of 129 and 126 mm respectively, including a full rocker shape and iPT Wideride binding. Thanks to the width of the ski, they retain all of their supreme off-piste sportiness. The RTM 75 and 73 are impressive entries in the beginner and intermediate range through their PROGRESSive Technology with a soft tip rocker.

CHARACTER Flexible: RTM 84 and 80 take full advantage of the Wideride bindings to retain all of their supreme sportiness and plenty of ability to set an edge. With a full rocker shape to keep turning easy, they are set to thrive in any condition. Even with a somewhat narrower build, the full rocker shape of the RTM 77 puts it squarely among the big boys, with an outstanding price/performance ratio based on its sporty feel on the snow. The RTM 75 and 73 are particularly recommended for ambitious beginners who want to push the boundaries from the start.

THE CODE

42 THE CODE

IDEAL USE Both Code models are clearly intended for on-piste use by athletic skiers. The underlying concept is clear: these skis are designed with an intelligent tip & tail rocker that lets skiers choose a ski approximately 10 cm longer than a comparable ski with a classic cambered shape.

A new dimension in frontside skiing. The Code is clearly defined for an audience of very strong skiers. Bring enough talent to the table and this ski knows no limits. It is a masterpiece of agility and maneuverability. There’s not a curve radius in existence that it can’t tackle with style, and no trail that seems too steep, hard or bumpy.

Numerous tests and experiments in ski schools have proven that young skiers who use tip rockered beginner skis experience significantly greater learning success. It’s one of the areas where tip rockers have a clear benefit over the classic camber construction. Our answer to this? A completely reworked series of children’s and junior skis for the 12/13 season.

STE

ROCKER

Progressive. Just like on the adult models, the goal here wasn’t simply to shoehorn a rocker shape into a junior ski. Instead, every individual ski was redesigned from the ground up to feature a tip rocker harmonized with the length and sidecut to guarantee perfect skiing performance. Because children don’t weigh enough to bend the wooden core on shorter lengths, all junior models are intentionally outfitted with composite cores. That ensures that the skis react good-naturedly and forgivingly yet still provide a sporty ride as the skier’s skills improve.

Young, wild, playful and enormously flexible. If you look just at the sidecut characteristics, the three models look very similar. The differences are much more apparent if you look at the width column. The Shiro’s full rocker high shape, for example, makes it impressively energy conserving and gives it a good-natured feel despite its size. The Gotama also stands out thanks to its extremely simple skiing performance, although it reacts a bit quicker. The Bridge is a real all-mountain freeski that delivers both outstanding off-piste turns and a fine performance in the park & pipe. All three models have tails bent strongly upward for spontaneous switches.

The symmetrical Wall is designed to satisfy our demanding park & pipe team, with a very rigid, direct flex profile and carbon reinforcement for highly agile control. The non-symmetrical Alley is also built with a cambered construction, but is tangibly softer to meet the needs of new freestylers. The new player on the team is the Kink – with a sidecut that lends this nonsymmetrical ski an extra dose of versatility and simple handling, supported through the tip & tail rocker. Also completely redesigned and decked out with tip & tail rocker are the Step and Ledge, engineered for uncompromising assaults on all obstacles in the park. The Ledge comes with a rocker shape and is wider than its predecessor. The Step is structured in the same way as the Ledge, but with higher-quality components, such as a racing base.

When the aim is to tackle THOSE runs, the kind of mountain faces that normal on-piste skiers just can’t reach, then the Nunataq and Nanuq are primed and ready to serve the needs of freerideoriented touring skiers.

CHARACTER Nunataq and its moderate full rocker and Nanuq with a tip rocker both offer boundless freeride potential paired with weight and workmanship that lives up to the tough demands of touring. Arthur Lanthaler, a mountain and ski guide and state certified ski and snowboard instructor from Tirol: “My preferred ski for long tours and high-altitude tours is the Nanuq in 177. It’s the ideal ski for all kinds of snow conditions.” Stei Steurer: “The rocker shape has major benefits for touring skis as well – when moving through tracked snow on the climb, the tip always stays above the snow, but on harder tracks the edges can bite in right where they need to, namely under the boot.“

Whether it’s the Amaruq or Mauja in the classic camber construction or the Inuk, now joined by the Qanik and Nukka, with tip rocker shapes, the ski handles any terrain with style and stands out through its comfortable skiing performance, magnificent craftsmanship and light-weight courtesy of the Multi Layer Woodcore Light. Qanik and Nukka have been completely redesigned this year to accommodate the tip rocker construction. The entire structure of the ski, and in particular the sidecut, has been precisely adapted to the tip rocker shape to guarantee optimal skiing and climbing performance.

Motion ipt Wideride For skis wider than 80 mm, traditional bindings systems make the skier work harder for the same performance. Marker and Völkl developed the iPT Wideride system with a contact surface width 30% greater than standard. On top of that, the binding is mounted significantly closer to the edge of the ski. This helps the energy flow more directly and continuously to the edges. They make wider skis more agile, responsive and easier to control. The skis are better in tune with the skier’s signals and application of pressure and edge for a precise and powerful characteristic.

eMOTION

improving a ski’s performance. Marker and Völkl recognized this long ago and have been working together for years on binding systems that offer optimal performance, free gliding, security and light weight.

Optically adapted to the ESSENZA collection and featuring the Twincam heel for greater comfort, the eMotion line is the ideal high performance women’s system binding. The Triple Pivot Elite Toe delivers top power transfer and sensationally reliable security in a system that has been engineered for the perfect balance between light weight and performance.

Modern Racing Performance

The rMOTION bindings system was developed by Marker and Völkl especially for the new RACETIGER GS SPEEDWALL and SL SPEEDWALL models. Just like in the World Cup, the rMotion ensures the broadest possible contact surface - using a race plate – for optimal power transfer. The free-gliding plate is fixed beneath the skier’s heel for more punch at the end of the turn.

4Motion

ALPINE

sMotion

The growing demand for wider skis, especially in the mid-range price segment, has inspired the development of a new binding system. The 4Motion is the solution. Power transfer across all 4 rails leads to superior energy transfer and uninhibited flex. The 4Motion is the first binding system to offer full compatibility with the i.roc concept from Dalbello.

Impressive skiing performance, light weight and easy flex for PSi ski models.

The sMotion binding system is constructed very similarly to the SpeedRide. Wider rails ensure optimal power transfer. The significant weight savings also provide easier handling.

JUNIOR Motion If you look at a junior or children’s ski, the binding zone takes up a disproportionately large part of the overall ski length. Traditional binding systems typically stiffen up that section of the ski. For longer ski lengths this is only a small impediment to a properly round flex. For children’s ski models, however, that stiffness represents a major restriction to the general functionality of the ski. Our developers recognized the problem and premiered a junior version of the 3Motion bindings system for shorter ski lengths during the 08/09 ski season. The benefit: by separating the attachment rails into two pieces, the Junior 3MOTION no longer disrupts the flex behavior in the decisive binding zone. When put on edge, the ski carves a perfect curve and makes skiing even simpler for kids. At the same time, the Junior 3MOTION also fulfills all technical requirements for maximum security.

Since it was introduced, the Völkl Touring team has exclusively used the Marker touring binding line. The F12 and F10 feature a freeride-oriented frame construction that delivers fantastic power transfer even in difficult snow conditions. They are produced using Hollow heel technology that keeps them amazingly light yet tremendously

convenient thanks to easy-to-use climbing aids and a tremendous degree of security during the descent. Stei Steurer, Swiss mountain guide: “Coming back down in hard, steep terrain is no problem when you’re using the Marker Tour binding!”

ROYAL FAMILY The bindings of the Marker Royal Family have been, and remain, the gold standard for freeride bindings. Since the introduction of the first DUKE model, this line has come to shape the market. From the Free Ten for beginners and youths to the Jester Pro with Din values up to 18 for hardcore freeriders, there’s a binding to handle any demand that can be made by today’s freeride and freestyle skiers.

For this coming season it’s the Duke’s turn in the innovation spotlight, with an extra dose of energy that threatens to eviscerate existing standards. The new DUKE features expanded contact points that now fit more snugly onto the ski than any previous freeride binding. This ensures that every last ounce of power is transferred to the ski and not even a little is lost! And once again the inventor of the category has reinvented the standard.
