Dynafit Mercury with Alpine binding Griffon

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I ran into this guy on the internet stating that the Dynafit Mercury is compatible with the Marker Griffon binding. Is this correct?

Statement:

"all Royal Family Series Markers work perfectly when adjusted for AFD clearance on the Vulcan. I've had Dynafit Vulcans, Mercurys, and Titans in both my Barron & Griffin bindings. 
Release & retention is perfect & 100% consistent with alpine boots. 
ALL royal family bindings have IDENTICAL toe-height adjustment mechanisms which allow me to dial in Marker's specified amount of AFD clearance. 
This Lord binding evidently has an extra 5mm of clearance for hypothetical, ultra-rockered boots, but your Dynafits are not among them. 
"

 

I know the Mercury isnt one of the super-heavy rockered AT boots, but is he correct? Im considering buying new skis for the park, and my current boots are Dynafit Mercurys. Will eventually be buying a pair of regular alpine boots, but if this is true I figured it could do through the season or so. 

I know that Marker doesnt state compatibility with the Griffon with AT boots. Im just asking if hes correct about this particular boot.

 

Best regards.

The AFD adjustment travel for Griffon/Jester IS NOT THE SAME as the Tour/Baron/Duke.  Yes, they both have some range.  And yes some AT boots may fit in the Griffon/Jester range.  But the range is absolutely greater on the touring bindings.

 

I find the Mercury to have a greater than average amount of boot sole rocker.  I would be wary trying to make the Merc and Griffon work together; it may release nice on a bench test but repeatable consistent release.  And if you ever need the binding serviced forget having any shop take a look at it. 

 

Just my take.

I don't have a pair of Griffons anymore so I can't test it, but looking at the toe of my Mercury boots: I can't imagine that fitting in a Griffon or other 'regular' alpine binding.  There is a lot of rocker on the sole.  

 

Good luck! Stay safe....
