Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

Marker Kingpin DIN

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Does anyone have experience with the DIN settings on the Marker Kingpin (ideally 2019 but I appreciate they're new)?

For reference I'm 186cm, 80kgs and pretty experienced on anything. Not looking to drop 30ft cliffs or 50ft kickers any time soon.

I'm contemplating buying a pair but I'm torn between the 10 or 13. I ski on a pair of Look P14's set a DIN 8 and realise these are probably overkill for what I need (I was young and more adventurous when I bought them).

Does anyone know if the Kingpins should be run higher/lower as they are touring(ish) bindings as well?

DIN is DIN. Run them at 8. But get Shifts instead wink

Good info here - read also the comments

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@BobinCH, Shifts cost more. Sad

I'm not planning on doing much inbound skiing on this setup. The climbing angles on the Kingpin compared to the Shift is also why I'm leaning towards them.

Just run your Pivot din setting on the Kingpins.

From my torque testing I think the 13 releases slightly more consistently but you could ski either model.

If you're mounting them to predrilled skis then binding choice often depends upon which make/model of binding won't clash with the existing holes.

I've got a couple of pairs of 18/19 10 and 13 Kingpins left at the right price plus the new 19/20 M-Werks Kingpin 12 which is 620g.
