Jeremy Jones approved for the gnarliest, deepest backcountry lines ever slayed, the Karakoram Prime Carbon Splitboard Bindings are built and developed in North Bend, Washington. A 30 minute drive east puts you into some of the best testing grounds a splitboarder could ask for: the Cascade Mountains. Emerging from this hotbed of splitboard innovation is the Prime Carbon. The lightweight performance of the Prime Carbon features several new or improved systems. The board binding connection, known as Solid Ride, features more contact points for an even burlier locked down feel. However, the star might be Karakoram's new Power Link system, which pulls double duty going up and downhill. While touring, Power Link allows you to fix your heel for skating and side stepping, while also locking the Solid Ride interface into place when it comes time to connect the planks. Finally, the emblematic carbon highback remains super stiff and lightweight, making the Karakoram Prime Carbon Splitboard Bindings the pinnacle of their industry.
