Built for the most epic tours imaginable.
The Karakoram Prime-X Carbon Splitboard Binding delivers ultra-powerful response and maximum touring efficiency for the longest skins and most demanding lines on the planet. From exposed lines in the Tetons to no-fall zones in Alaska, this is the binding that some of the world's gnarliest shredders rely on when accessing terrain by foot.
Lending an incredibly supportive, powerful, and featherweight feel to this binding is a carbon fiber composite highback. Adding to its ultra-responsive feel is Karakoram's Prime Interface, which ensures a completely solid feel underfoot without unnerving seam slop or chatter at high speeds. Its Solid Ride four-point attachment gives you increased stance options (-30 to 30 degrees) and improved ergonomics. Four wide, pre-loaded contact points direct energy to the edges for unmatched response and control when you're riding steep, high-consequence terrain.
Its Ride-Stride forward lean 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 ( in two-degree adjustable increments) for quick-turning response when you're charging steeps.
Ditching traditional climbing wires for a two-height riser that deploys with the quick 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 up the taller riser during intimidating, steeper climbs. Additionally, there's a heel lock-down feature that's ideal for skating across long flats and side-stepping small hills. This lock-down has a load equivalent to DIN 6.
Specializing in efficiency, the Prime Interface uses the tried-and-true Tour Mode used on the original Split 30 interface. A quick-release touring bracket and Power-Link activation lever allow for quick-and-easy transitions from touring to riding without taking your foot out of the binding. Total changeover time is roughly 2 minutes, and that includes taking off your skins and stashing 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.
