Marker Squire Ski Binding

It will make you king of the mountain.

When you need a binding that will handle everything from bumps to powder to mellow lines through the trees, you can't go wrong with the Marker Squire Ski Binding. This versatile binding is a thing of beauty that offers powerful and smooth energy transmission from your boot to your ski, no matter what kind of terrain you take it down.

A Triple Pivot Light toe keeps the weight down but holds on with tenacity, just like the beefier Marker models in the Royal Family. The Squire's gliding AFD (anti-friction device) allows for safety and precision that is unhindered by dirt, snow, and ice buildup, while the Hollow Linkage Reel two-piece TwinCam heel allows for smooth, easy entry, even in snowy conditions. With a mid-range DIN of 3 to 11, the Squire is the crowd pleaser of the Royal Family.

  • A versatile all-mountain binding
  • 3-11 DIN range accommodates intermediate skiers
  • Compatible with standard alpine boots
  • Gliding AFD plate ensures a smooth and safe feel
  • Triple Pivot Light Toe reduces weight and is easy to step in

Was skeptical at first

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As a gift, I got these put on my pow skis, heavy and 122 underfoot, and was skeptical at first that they would be durable or keep me locked in. The low price of them made me think they were cheap, but now I have ridden them for 3 straight winters and have had ZERO issues. Give me great control and are very light to compensate for my heavy skis. If you are on a budget and don't want any issues with your setup, I recommend these bindings.

Great bindings

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great bindings for the DIN rating. Although they are the lightest bindings in the line they perform great and would highly suggest for the lighter weight skiers out there or those who ski with a lighter DIN setting

Durable Solid Light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Those are three great words revolving around this Marker binding. These are a great intermediate binding that don't break the bank - and Marker quality is hard to beat. Great DIN range and easy to click in and click out. Super reliable in soft snow, hard snow, or the thick heavy stuff. You can tell the difference with this light binding but you can be sure you're going to get great performance out of it on every run.

Like a Feather!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are some of the lightest bindings of this type, super durable and easy to step in! They also have a reliable release, with a low/intermediate DIN setting so great for anyone starting out. You can still grow within these bindings as they do go up to an 11 . My girlfriend used to ride in these and was stoked on them, and I would fully recommend them to any skier who is starting out!

Reliable and solid

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My wife has these mounted on her BD Boundary 100's and they are great! Easy in/out, reliable release (tested), heavy enough to be durable but not too heavy overall, and they look good as well!.

Fits the bill

    These are a great option for ladies or lighter weight riders who do not need a binding with a high DIN setting. They transmit power to the ski well and the heel piece makes stepping in a breeze.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have owned 2 pair of Squires in my early days of skiing. These bindings worked great for learning the basics and transitioning my new skills to almost every environment (park, groomed runs, off trail) on the mountain.

    These bindings stand out to me becase they are the lightest I have used by a country mile. You can feel the reduced swing weight but they still transfer the power really well to the ski. The extra bonus is that the lightness is an advantage when bootpack hiking or dragging skis around a parking lot.

    For young riders and lighter adults these bindings are a great option for resort skiing. They survived season after season and where easy to adjust.

    I upgraded to the Griffon after my skills advanced to the point where i needed a really burly binding for big mountain riding and cliff drops.

    Lovely and Light

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Marker has been in the top manufacturers for bindings since I began skiing, and they continue that legacy with the Marker Squire. The new Marker Squire extends its performance range with a 3-10 DIN range making it perfect for everyone from first time skiers to intermediate rippers.

    With skis getting wider and wider, a lot of power transmission can be lost between the binding and the ski, forcing the skier to drive harder and ultimately resulting in greater fatigue. The Squire features Power Width Design, Marker’s signature toe and heel designs engineered to make today’s wider skis perform at their very best. I can say that this binding does a great job of holding you in, and won’t prelease unless it is really necessary. This binding will work great for you if you are a beginner to intermediate skier. For more advanced skiers, I recommend the Marker Griffon 13 ID binding.
