Buying park skis, pow skis, and all-mountain skis is a bummer, especially when today's best boards are so damn versatile. Marker's Schizo 14 Ski Binding saves you the extra purchases, though, with its one-of-a-kind Multi-Stance Adjuster, which lets you slide the binding forward and backward up to 30mm from center, so you can ski in the park with a centered stance, slide your clamps back when you're getting barreled, and keep them in the middle for all-mountain shredding. Just like that, your do-it-all skis can really do it all, and you'll be able so spend the money you saved on more mportant things like beer and mustache dye.
Adjustability is the Schizo's calling card, but it's a bomber, safe, and reliable binding too. The Triple Pivot Elite Toe and Inter Pivot Heel provide a good amount of elastic travel, so you won't pre-release and can set your DIN lower, which can save your tibs, fibs, and knee ligs. The Gliding AFD plate ensures consistent lateral release, and the binding's wide footprint is designed to push power to the edges of wider skis, so you don't feel lost when you're pushing your big boards through the park or mobbing through choppy leftovers.

So many advantages
This is my second set of these bindings. Despite the unfortunate name they do have quite a few benefits. I like the +/-3 centimeters of adjustment on the binding so I don't have to worry about missing the sweet spot when I'm mounting up a new set of planks. Another huge bonus is that these are basically a glorified demo binding so once you mount them you can still adjust them to fit larger and smaller boot sizes down the road.

I had a pair of these mounted on the K2 Hellbent and they where a lot of fun. Most bindings force you to pick a stance before riding the ski and stick with it. The Schizo allows you to adjust the bindings forward or backward so you can pick the best stance for you and your skis. After buying these bindings I was blown away with how easy it was to adjust the stance and the BSL.
The best part about these bindings is the piece of mind that you get with not having to commit to one position. After messing around with them at different spots I found that I prefer to ski much more forward on my skis then what i was at previously and I would not have known that without the buying the Schizo.
If you feel like you are unsure of where you want to mount your skis and you want more freedom, or if you don't know what mount you prefer and you would like a binding that would allow you to test out different positions I totally recommend these bindings.
