The Marker M 10.0 EPS Binding is a fantastic choice for beginner, intermediate, and or lightweight skiers who want a solid binding that's not excessively heavy and that won't drain your wallet. All too often skiers opt for bindings that are unnecessarily heavy with a high DIN range. The 2-10 DIN range of the Marker M 10.0 EPS, however, offers good performance for skiers that don't require high retention settings and gives it a good range of applicable users. Beginner skiers will benefit from the light overall weight and the ability to have relatively easy release settings from your bindings. As skiers develop, however, or for intermediate skiers, more aggressive kids, the maximum 10 DIN offers plenty of strength and retention. This binding is built using a lot of progressive technology despite the low price. The TLT toe piece is lightweight and offers full lateral and backwards release, while the Compact heel piece offers similarly impressive performance in a very lightweight design. We also love the muted, neutral color scheme of the Marker M 10.0 EPS Binding. It's easy to match with any ski and won't clash colors with just about anything. It really is a fantastic binding considering the price and any beginner, intermediate, or lightweight skier should seriously consider this binding before jumping up to a heavier, higher DIN range, and more expensive option.
