The Race X-cell 18 is Marker’s top end racing binding for FIS level skiers, with extra metal in the toe and a metal sole holder in the heel.The X-cell 18 is the first choice for lighter skiers and athletic women who need to slice off every fraction of a second. All the features are exactly identical to the Xcell 24.0, except with a DIN range of 8.0 to 18.0.
Race Xcell Toe: With a focus on increased power transmission, the revolutionary Xcell Piston technology in the toe piece keeps the boot centered during the quick jolts that often happen on the race course. Staying centered in the binding, with more precision and control means faster times in the race course. Updated Xcell Toe features include; Xcell Piston to absorb short initial impacts insuring that the Boot stays centered, new horizontal spring orientation for increased elasticity and retention. All these features allow the racer incredible power transmission with greater precision and control.
Stainless Gliding AFD: All marker bindings are equipped with a moveable AFD (anti friction device), allowing a precise release, unhindered by dirt, snow, and ice buildup.
Race Xcell Heel: The next logical step in the improvement of Marker’s Twincam heel, with more power, higher elasticity in the release and an optimized performance curve. The new construction increases the boot and ski connectivity for a longer period, even in extremely steep terrain, ensuring precise ski guidance until released. It also offers improved power transfer through the wider connection of the heel rail. The TC heel’s familiar effective step-in behavior has also been further improved. Updated Xcell heel features include; Increased vertical energy absorption, 16 mm elastic travel, Increased boot lug purchase, and a wider heel connection for greater power transmission.
Magnesium Components: Magnesium’s light weight and high strength make it perfect for high-end bindings. Lighter, stronger, better.
