lighter equipment, faster ascent, harder lines. the karakoram prime x sets new standards in splitboarding and regularly comes with new upgrades. the tried and tested binding scores points for its ease of use and ensures that you win the battle against the material. quick conversion from walk to ride with a sophisticated technique, the best hold and power transmission bring true splitboard joy. the prime x sets a new standard for every backcountry snowboarder.highbackthe reactive highback was designed for an optimised strength-to-weight ratio. this highback comes with a medium-stiff flex. with the ride-stride forward lean, you can lean the highback back up to 8 degrees for increased comfort when mounting. in ride mode you can adjust the forward lean from 0 to 22 degrees in 2 degree increments for more direct or less direct power transmission, just the way you like it.baseplatethe x-type baseplate allows the binding to move with the torsional flex of the board for an unmatched board feel. the x-type 7075-t6 heelcup is twice stronger than standard aluminium. the cnc machined, cored design maximises the stability to weight ratio. the high sidewall supports the boot for better power transmission and grip when traversing steep slopes. the power link, a lever mechanism located under the heel, makes it super easy to switch the binding from tour mode to ride mode and back. because the lever is ergonomically adapted to the binding, you only need one simple movement to release the binding from the touring brackets and reinsert it.strapsthe airpod straps focus on the essentials. without bling bling, the focus of these straps is on comfort and support at low weight. the super pivot ratchets are made especially for splitboarding: lighter, quieter and extremely robust.splitboard technologythe active joining technology consists of four pre-installed contact points. this connects the splitboard binding to the board. these then ensure optimum power transmission to the edges. you lose less energy and are offered more stability and control. the tour step function ensures absolute comfort when frequently switching between touring and downhill. the binding remains on the boot while you change from one position to the other. this saves you a lot of time when repositioning.
