2018 Marker F10 experiences?
I'm currently rocking a pair of 2016 Sin 7s with demo bindings and looking to do a small amount of touring so want to convert them. Thinking about some 2018 F10s which are on sale most places. I know the first gens had major issues with snapping at the front, but I figure Marker should have them dialled by now. Anyone else using 2018 F10s with any experiences they can share? Looking to pull the trigger pretty soon! Thanks
I had marker tours and the issue I had was with them breaking off of the ski at the plastic parts that mount in to the ski. This happened in ski mode not when I was touring and the binding just snapped completely off. I'm pretty light on gear for someone on here. That part of the binding is totally thin crappy plastic and I think all the marker frame bindings are like that. Most bindings have some sort of metal piece in the heel that the screws go through that prevents this from happening. Looking back I realize this is a pure shit design and I cannot recommend any Marker frame binding to anyone.
if youre looking at a frame binding go with a tyrolia theyre pretty light and the 2 pairs ive had have all been bombproof
Yeah gotta be frame, I do mostly in-bounds and I don't want to have to buy new boots (I have non-tech touring and downhill boots already). I know that crappy plastic was a problem with early ones, but I was hoping that they would have fixed that design by now. Not great if it's still plastic.
The f10 is their lightweight frame binding, it's essentially built off the squire so if you're not small/ski harder the baron or would be a bwtter option
Tyrolias frame binding is durable and all the jazz, but it's got an obnoxiously large footprint on the ski and will kill the flex more so than other frame bindings. At the shop I tend to try to steer people away from it
