Why We Like The Karakoram Prime X Binding

Allowing us to travel lighter, faster, and longer, the Karakoram Prime X Binding is here to help us ride harder than anyone else. Equipped with a Carbon C4 highback, the Prime X optimizes its strength-to-weight ratio and maintains a medium flex for lateral support when we need it most. A stiffer flex is found in the Open Binding chassis for unrivaled response and board feel, while the asymmetric heelcup's high sidewalls boost support and power transfer while side-hilling. This heelcup is also made from 7000-series space-grade aluminum, which is twice as strong as standard aluminum, and is cored out for featherweight performance. The Prime X features Dual Ride-Stride forward lean that quickly toggles between Ride and Walk modes with a 1/4-turn of the forward lean adjuster. Best of all, the Prime Interface has no moving parts, so we never have to worry about losing parts in the snow.

Not without issues

I've put it through the wringer

Heavy, fragile highback, buckles prone to icing, made up of a ton of individual parts leading to a higher possibility of failure, requires a ton of ice clearing to mount, and the straps are pretty stiff. While the touring motion is nice, I don’t think that overcomes the higher price and the issues above. After around 50 days of touring and resort riding, these are my thoughts.
