"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 Dukes extra width affords, plus the ability to free your heel and take a walk on the wild side. This year, the Dukes interface is integrated into the ski, lowering its stand height. And it can be moved fore or aft to taste."
