The Marker Baron Bindings are a mid-weight AT (Alpine Touring) binding that based off of the Marker Griffon toe and heel. The Baron is equipped with a hiking aid with 7° and 13° positions. The locking mechanism is located underneath the boot and can only be released or engaged when a boot isn't clicked into the binding -- so you can ski safely knowing you're binding will not switch modes. The Marker Baron doesn't have to be used solely for AT it is a solid binding for all-mountain use as well. The standing height of the Baron is 36mm vs. the Griffon that is 22mm -- being an additional 1.5cm higher off of the snow will make your skis much quicker edge to edge.
