How to Adjust Marker Motion Bindings

How to Adjust Marker Motion Bindings
Marker Motion bindings are designed for all mountain skiing and are part of the iPT Motion line. Motion bindings have a DIN setting of four to 12 release settings. Boot tracks hold the foot in place while allowing micro fore and aft adjustments on the ski. A series of notches on the binding track allows for movement fore and aft and customized settings for your particular ski style.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Set the Tracks

Things You’ll Need:
  • Marker Motion bindings
  • Skis
  • Ski boots
  • Flat screw driver
  • Flat surface
  • Ski poles
Step 1
Place the ski with Motion binding on the flat surface or ground. Place an empty ski boot into the toe lock and the push the back of the ski into the heal cup/lock. Use the flat headed screw driver and find the DIN setting screw on the back of the heal lock. Turn the screw to the left until the hash mark on the DIN number setting reads zero. Turn the screw to the right one full turn at a time until the DIN setting you desire is reached.
Step 2
Set the second ski down on the flat surface and attach the other empty ski boot to the binding, toe first and then heal clamp/lock. Use the screw driver to turn the DIN setting screw to the left until the DIN hash mark reads zero. Turn the screw to the right, one full turn at a time, until the DIN reads the setting you desire.
Step 3
Remove boots. Put the boots on and tighten as you would for skiing. Step into the bindings until the heel lock click into place with both boots.
Step 4
Use your ski poles to test the binding release on the release button on the back of the ski. Use the tip of the ski pole to press the indentation on the back of the heel lock.
Step 5
Test the adjusted bindings on the bunny or beginner slope for one or two runs to ensure the settings are safe and secure.

Tips & Warnings

 
Keep a small multi-tool in your ski pack or parka to make micro adjustments on the mountain.
 
Always test the new settings and adjustments on an easy slope prior to taking on hard slopes or jumps.
