Above: The Karakorum Prime X Splitboard Binding
With split boarding quickly becoming the hottest ticket in town, Karakoram are in the thick of it with the best of them. Their splitboard bindings and accessories are of the highest quality and have been vigorously tested by some of the world’s best riders. Their motto is simple: “ Gear should improve our experience.”
“ Gear should improve our experience”
Their prime binding system combines ultra-lightweight gear with sturdy and reliable performance and durability. With their Prime X Carbon binding coming in at an impressive 650g and featuring a biaxial weave carbon fibre highback to give unparalleled responsiveness and comfort. The X-type heelcup is twice as strong as standard aluminium and uses strategic cut outs to minimise weight. Airform ankle straps utilise separate pressure pods to eliminate pinch points across the top of your boots and allows the strap itself to be super malleable over every kind of boot. Featherlite toe straps mould around the front of your boots, and keep you nestled into the bindings on the ride down and save on weight on the way up.
“We need gear that we can push as hard as we push ourselves. We want to focus on our environment and our riding – nothing else”
Making everything from front points, to crampons, to quiver protectors Karakoram always offer super tech product with sacrificing on quality.
