    Prime SL Splitboard Binding

    The Prime SL Splitboard Binding boasts Karakoram's rock-solid board connection and a responsive flex best-suited for getting tricky in the backcountry. Each binding only adds a pound to your splitty setup, and its moderately soft flex offers the energy rebound required for dropping cliffs, jibbing trees, and bouncing in an out of powdery stashes. It also features Karakoram's unrivaled interface for a quick-and-easy transition from tour to ride, making for an easier ascent, a faster transition, and a rowdier ride downhill.

    Slightly softer than Karakoram's carbon-infused bindings, the Prime SL Split Binding features an Airflow highback that's cored out for a bit more lateral flex and an ultralight feel. However, it's still plenty responsive when you're laying into heelside turns and slashing through secret powder stashes. This highback features Ride-Stride forward lean that quickly toggles between Ride and Walk modes with a 1/4-turn of the forward lean adjuster. In Walk mode, the -8 degree forward lean elongates your stride to conserve energy on the long uphill skin. Ride mode delivers 0 to 22 degrees of forward lean (2 degree adjustable increments) for quick-turning response when you're charging steeps.

    The mid-flexing Prime SL uses Karakoram's Prime Interface for a completely solid feel underfoot, without unnerving seam slop or high-speed chatter. Its Solid Ride four-point attachment increases your stance options (-30 to 30 degrees) and improves ergonomics. Four wide preloaded contact points direct energy to the edges for unmatched response and control when you're riding high-consequence terrain.

    Ditching traditional climbing wires for a two-height riser that deploys with the simple flick of your pole basket, the Flip-Speed Riser conquers mellow approaches and more demanding ascents alike. Engage the shorter riser on long, flatter approaches or flip the taller riser during intimidating, steeper climbs. Additionally, there's a heel lock-down feature that's ideal for skating across flats and side-steeping small hills. This lock-down has a load equivalent to DIN 6. Total changeover time is roughly two minutes, and that includes taking off your skins and storing everything in your pack. Best of all, the Prime Interface has no moving parts, so you never have to worry about losing parts in the snow.

      I put these bindings on my Jones Hovercraft. They perform well in low angle situations but also steep hardpack and crust that you find in the high alpine sometimes. They can be adjusted to pull the sides of the board together wich eliminates the gaps that will eventually form in your board overtime. These easily ride as well any Burton or Union freeride bindings I've had and tour well too. Worth the money.
