Fritschi eagle 12

Comfort is everything! If you are having just one pair of boots (without inserts) and you would like to do medium long tours the Fritschi eagle is your best binding.

The Fritschi eagle is not a freeride binding. It is designed for medium long ski touring and for little piste skiing. The advantage to the Marker Tour is the better pivot point (for easier walking), the better handling of the heel lifter and a little bit less weight than the Marker frame bindings

Uphill performanceBetter than Marker tour worse than Pin bindings
SafetyVery good, if you are unlucky it is possible that your Heel locker is opening while you go down but i just experienced that in high speed.
