The F12 Tour EPF is the ideal binding for skiers who ski mainly off-piste and sometimes tour too. As well as all the familiar touring features, it boasts an extra-wide EPF frame that delivers excellent power transmission, making it easier to control turns in any kind of snow and taming even the widest touring ski. An ultra-modern hollow linkage heel with wider boot insert reduces the step-in force by around 35%. Snow and ice can be scraped effortlessly off the sole at the Triple Pivot Light toe piece with anti-ice bar. The F12 Tour EPF is compatible with all types of boot – including, of course, ones with GripWalk soles.
Triple Pivot Light Toe
The compact toe features a horizontally inserted spring. Together with the gliding plate the gliding elements integrated into the sole holders ensure a very precise release behavior which is comparable to all other Marker bindings. Why should touring skiers and freestylers accept any compromises? An aluminium bridge on the top provides additional support without adding any extra weight.
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.
Hollow Linkage Heel
This heel was redesigned from the ground up to optimize retention for all types of alpine and touring soles. The aluminium hollow axle saves on weight and maximizes the torsional stiffness. This very robust heel construction is best suited for the most strenuous of requirements.
The patented, ergonomically shaped lever under the boot allows comfortable opening and closing. The position prevents the binding from unwanted release and provides unparalleled security against an undesired "telemark" situation.
The titanium climbing aid offers two 7° and 13° positions which can easily be accessed with the ski pole, even in an unstable standing position. Integrated elastomer pads dampen the impact reducing the irritating traditional “clack” and allow more comfortable hiking.
Touring Base Plate
The wide frame construction is secured at several positions, perfectly distributing the pressure for unparalleled skiing performance. 2 sizes are available for optimum size range and stocking efficiency.
Marker's fibre-reinforced frame base plate provides impressive riding stability and is yet very light due to the gas injected hollow construction.
Switching the lever to touring mode moves the whole binding 40 mm backward, allowing a more comfortable walking position and keeping the ski optimally balanced for kick turns and steep terrain.
Marker Sole.ID allows Marker Authorized Retailers to adjust Sole ID equipped bindings to both ISO 5355 (Alpine) and ISO 9523 (AT) boot sole norms, as well as GripWalk and WTR equipped boots.
EPF (Extended Power Frame)
The power booster. The power frame delivers breath-taking performance and amazing power transfer in every condition. Recommended for skis over 88 mm.
Power Width Design
The original Marker breakthrough for wider freeskiing skis, based on a 76mm platform. Wider connection brackets create better power transmission for all Marker Royal Family and Tour bindings.
