    • Those are just the demo tracks for the Marker Griffon bindings that are mounted on these skis. The Explo 96 does not come equipped with an integrated binding system.

        • That would be a problem for reviewers, since there is (AFAIK) no such thing as a demo touring binding. I think Blister has made clear that they review most skis with demo bindings.
