Blizzard was the first to deploy the trendy Marker Duke as a package binding. That makes the Argos cooler by association. More importantly, it gives it the edge-power that the Duke's extra width affords, plus the ability to free your heel and take a walk on the wild side. This year, the Duke's interface is integrated into the ski, lowering its stand-height. And it can be moved fore or aft to taste. "Plenty beefy, but pretty darn quick for its size," said Sabanosh.
