Marker, Kastle ski bindings recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the importers have announced a voluntary recall of Marker and Kastle Twin Cam 12.0 ski bindings.

Steel springs in the heel pieces of the bindings could break, posing a fall hazard to consumers, according to a written statement from the commissioner.

No injuries have been reported.

The recalled models:

  • Marker 12.0 TC Comp EPS/white and red
  • Marker 12.0 Free with 90mm or 110mm ski brake/black
  • Marker rMotion 12.0 D/white and red
  • Kästle K12 KTI
  • Kästle K12 CTI with 90mm or 110mm ski brake
They were sold nationwide at Ski and specialty sports retailers nationwide from January 2010 through December 2010 for the Kastle bindings and from July 2010 through December 2010 for the Marker bindings.

The bindings sold for between $280 and $340.

They were made in the Czech Republic

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the bindings and return Marker bindings to a Marker-authorized retailer or return Kastle bindings to a Kastle-authorized retailer for a free replacement heel binding.
