The 5th Element Zirrafe Ski Package was designed to be the Swiss army knife of sorts and is here to help athletic beginners to intermediate skiers continue to improve while allowing them to ski everything the mountain has to offer. Built around an 85mm waist and a full wood core, the Zirrafe starts with a solid foundation for great edge hold and a smooth skiing experience. The Zirrafe gets a touch of rocker in both the tip and tail, and a mellow rise gives the Zirrafe almost automatic turn initiation without sacrificing the edge feel and control as speed increases. The rocker also increases the performance of the Zirrafe off-piste, allowing it to float on crud and powder for effortless arcs no matter the snow pack. As a final touch, the Zirrafe gets a dose of twin tip, making it park friendly for the more daring young skiers. The Marker Free Ten bindings features a DIN range of 3-10 is perfect for the smaller, or less aggressive freeskiier. The lightest binding of it's kind, it is designed around a minimum ski width of 76mm. Featuring Marker's Triple Pivot Compact Toe, sole holder rollers, and a gliding AFD the Free Ten offers all the retention and release capabilities Marker is known for. The Freeride Brake sits up higher when the boot is engaged so you don't have to worry about catching your brake. The Free Ten has a shorter, but wider platform to give modern skis the torsional power, and deeper flex than other bindings. The Hollow Linkage Heel is based around a hollow aluminum axle, which saves weight but also provides maximum torsional stiffness.
