Split your time.
While many of Karakoram's bindings are aimed at riders who spend all their time in the backcountry and don't bother with the resort anymore, the Karakoram Prime Connect-R Splitboard Binding was created to split its time between the skin track and the ski lift. It attaches to both the Karakoram split connect system and solid snowboards via the included Quiver-Connectors, meaning you can easily swap it between your split and solid so you don't have to purchase two separate sets of bindings. The Prime Connect-R is the same as the original Prime Connect, only with a stiffer highback for riders who prefer more support and response.
The key feature of the Connect is the Quiver-Connector system. It comes standard with two Quiver-Connectors, which are the means by which this binding attaches to a board with a 4-hole system. By setting up the Quiver-Connectors on your boards ahead of time, you can switch the bindings from one board to the next in mere seconds, all without fussing with screws, angles, or stance measurements. Take the split out before the lifts start running, switch over to your solid pow board to snag some freshies at the resort, then finish off the day with some groomer laps on your carving board, all with the same set of bindings.

5 star, so far
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
At the moment I can only rate this as a solid board binding, used with the included quiver connectors. My first split board is on its way, so I’ll update when I get to try it. So far though, I can’t say enough about the response and improved edge control I got with these on my daily driver. Coming from a soft freestyle binding to these is akin to hopping out of a Ford Expedition with electro-numb power steering and into a Lotus. You can feel everything and everything you do is immediately transmitted to your contact points. Quiver connector system is great as well, solid lock-up and taking them on and off is super quick and easy.
