|Description||It took years for another company to introduce a binding to compete in the segment created by the Marker Duke. The Guardian sits lower to the ski (26mm stand height) than either the Duke (36mm) or the new Tyrolia Adrenaline (also 36mm)—so it’s closer to a traditional binding— and features a 80mm-wide platform to better drive fat skis. The Guardian can go from ski to tour without stepping out of the binding, and the mechanism is easier to keep clear of snow and ice. It is slightly heavier than the Duke (2780g). But if you’re concerned about grams, try a tech binding. - Derek Taylor|
