Throughout the 2000-01 line, Marker has tweaked the design of its toe, heel, brake platform, and more to create an incredibly tight boot-to-binding contact. What that means to you: The ski will respond more quickly to every whim of your foot. Precise transmission of energy is what it's all about. Shown here: M9.2 Turbo SC Titanium ($395).
