Good for All Mountain
With unrivaled downhill performance, the DIN-16 Duke does anything a resort binding can—huck air, carve rails, hammer bump lines. Just don't think of it as an AT binding. It's an alpine binding with a walk mode. Yes, the Duke will tour when you need it, but it's heavy, and therefore not a great choice for earning a ton of vertical. 5.8 lbs; markerusa.com
