The Karakoram Prime1 Split Snowboard improves upon traditional split interfaces with its efficient quick release touring bracket, convenient Power Link activation lever, and Solid Ride four point connection. Although it's a couple ounces heavier than Karakoram's top tier Prime Bindings i. e., the Prime Carbon and Prime SL, the Prime1 is a great starting point to benefit from Karakoram's legendary response and efficiency. Softer than Karakoram's carbon infused offerings, the Prime1 Split Binding has an Airflow highback that's cored out for a bit more lateral flex, as well as an ultra light feel. However, it's still plenty responsive when you're carving at high speeds and slashing through deep powder. This highback features Ride Stride forward lean that quickly toggles between Ride and Walk Modes with a 14 turn of the forward lean adjuster. In Walk mode, the 8o forward lean elongates your stride to conserve energy on the long uphill skin. Ride mode delivers 0o to 22o of forward lean 2o adjustable increments for quick turning response. Offering a completely solid feel underfoot, this binding uses a Solid Ride four point attachment to eliminate unnerving seam slop and board chatter, especially when you're riding at high speeds. Four wide, pre loaded contact points direct energy to the edges for unmatched response on steep, high consequence backcountry lines. 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 demanding ascents alike. Engage the shorter riser on long, flatter approaches or flip the taller riser during intimidating climbs. Additionally, there's a heel lock down feature for skating across flats and side steeping small hills. This lock down has a load equivalent to DIN 6 to 8. More efficient than pin style split bindings, the Prime Interface uses Karakoram's quick release touring bracket found on the original Split 30 interface. Th...
