The Marker Race X-Cell 18 is Marker’s top-end racing binding for FIS level skiers, with extra metal in the toe and a metal sole holder in the heel.
This Marker Race binding is perfect for elite level and FIS racers looking to get ahead. The Marker Race X-Cell 18 binding features metal in the toe piece as well as a metal sole holder in the heel allowing for increased power transmission from boot to ski to snow. Allowing those turns to be faster and sharper. The X-Cell piston in the toe piece absorbs short initial impacts inevitably endured in ski racing, to keep your boot centered in the binding while racing. The Marker Race X-Cell 18 binding also features magnesium parts, keeping this binding strong without weighing it down.
