I have an extra pair of dukes and a set of skins that I need to get rid of and I need some alpine bindings. So... lets trade.
The dukes are a bit interesting. When not clicked into the ski, the binding can go from ski to tour mode by pushing the binding. Though a bit startling, it is really not a problem when you are clicked into the binding. While clicks into the binding, the lever cannot move (your binding blocks it), so you are locked into ski mode with no problem at all. Ive ridden these a bunch like this and i feel secure skiing in them. Definitely an awesome way to get into the backcountry and into touring.
Skins are: G3 Expeditions: http://www.backcountry.com/g3-expedition-climbing-skin
They are cut for Atomic Blogs, dimensions are 130 / 110 / 122 . So expect the skin to be that size.
Let me know if ya want them. Probably going to go fast.
I will trade both of these for an alpine binding. Let me know what you've got.
(I am also in the process of trying to get replacement parts from the marker rep, but they dont reply to shit. I'll let you know if they can hook it up with new levers. )
