Karakoram Prime-X + Split Interface Splitboard Bindings 2024
The best of the best for lightweight touring missions, the Karakoram Prime-X + Split Interface Splitboard Bindings are made with high quality materials that perform even better than they look. Titanium hardware, a C4 Carbon highback, and more make these strong yet nimble bindings a force to be reckoned with on the skin track. Complete with a Ride Mode 2.0 touring system that increases board power and provides seamless transitions, the Karakoram Prime-X + Split Interface Splitboard Bindings are a splitboarder's dream.
Dual Ride Stride – Saving energy in the backcountry can be the difference between going for a second lap, going for a longer tour, or going home because you’re wiped out. All Karakoram splitboard bindings come standard with Dual Ride-Stride forward lean. With a -8° forward lean setting, Stride Mode allows you to stride and glide further with every step. Dual Ride modes allow you to effortlessly switch between railing carves and surfing turns. Drive Mode consists of a preset useradjustable forward lean (0°-22°), and surf mode can be activated without unstrapping (11° or 0°). Simply turn and go. Dual RideStride is the fastest and easiest forward lean adjustment available.
Smooth Touring Pivot – Independent sleeves rotate freely on a fixed thru-axle, similar to a bike axle, making these stiff and smooth. They're wide for touring rigidity, they shed snow well, and the quick-releasing bracket allows for simple transitions.
Heel Lock – On-the-fly heel lock down Release load equivalent to DIN 6 Heel-Lock folds out of way when not needed
Dual Speed Riser with Heel Lock Pole Basket Flip – Flip up/down with pole basket on the fly. Retractable Heel-Lock included.
Active Joining – No slop with instant response. Pre-loaded contact points create an ultra solid connection between your bindings and splitboard.
Interlocking Seam Tabs – No separation: tabs interlock across the seam of your board, interlocking and pre-loading the two halves for a solid ride.
Snow Ejection Channels – Made from a carbon infused nylon, the Ride Mode 2.0 is designed to reduce snow build up and clear snow easily.
Asymmetric Heelcup – The high outside sidewall provides the best power transfer to your edges while touring. The dropped inside sidewall allows you the freedom of movement to tuck your knee in a turn or tweak a grab.
