With a DIN setting up 13, the Baron has earned its stripes as a favorite amongst big mountain, backcountry enthusiasts who look for a binding including walking option and climbing aid. Within the update of the Royal Family, the Baron with Extended Power Frame (EPF) now comes with new Triple Pivot toe and Interpivot 3 freeride heel for improved power transmission and edge grip. With its extra-wide connection to the ski, gives it the structure needed to power today's wider skis through any snow conditions. The new Anti Ice Rail is pretty handy to scrape off snow and ice from the boot sole. In addition the Baron 13 EPF also comes with Sole.ID to fit all alpine an touring boots.
AFD Stainless Steel
All MARKER bindings are equipped with a moveable AFD (anti friction device) leading to a highly precise release almost entirely unhindered by dirt, snow and ice! Individual adjustment of the AFD to the area of application ensures perfect functionality.
Inter Pivot Heel
The stunning heel construction delivers superior holding power for free riding, featuring DIN/ISO 4-13. The Inter Pivot Heel directs the power forces in the angle of elasticity improving the holding power and reducing pre-releases.
Triple Pivot Elite Toe
The toe construction with DIN/ISO up to Z 13 allows for impressive retention when freeriding. The spring in the toe is inserted horizontally and with a sole plate inclined by 5° it provides the highest energy absorption so as to reduce the risk of early release. The large supporting surface optimizes the power transmission and allows for great stresses and strains. In relation to their weight, toes with this technology therefore achieve a never-seen-before performance.
Whatever boot you wear, all Marker SOLE.ID bindings are compatible to every kind of ski boot! Whether you prefer alpine boots or boots with touring sole, with SOLE.ID the bindings can be adjusted in seconds. The secret is the height-adjustable gliding plate; easy to handle and of course providing uncompromising performance. SOLE.ID respects ISO 5355 (alpine boots) and ISO 9523 (boots with touring soles).
Anti Ice Rail
Use the metal rail to scratch off ice and snow below your boot sole.
Fibre-reinforced frame base plate provides impressive riding stability and is yet very light due to the gas injected hollow construction.
Climbing Aids Frame Tour
The climbing aid offers two positions with 7° and 13° which can easily be accessed with the ski pole, even in an unstable standing position. Integrated elastomer paddings dampen the impact reducing the irritating traditional “clack” and allow more comfortable hiking.
