The Burton Hitchhiker X Splitboard Binding is a lighter version of Burton's best-selling backcountry binding. Its highback is thinner yet still provides a moderately stiff flex, and the Hammockstrap and Capstrap are made with the least amount of materials for minimalist-minded, gram-counting, backcountry splitboarders. This is the binding for touring farther and taking the splitboard up mountaineering missions like the Grand Teton itself. Burton deferred to the backcountry touring expertise of Spark R&D and used their Tesla T1 System as the basis for the Hitchhiker. This touring interface features Side-Lock touring brackets that eliminate the need for pesky pin systems, which are a major hassle to transition from touring to riding. Not only is this interface much faster on the transition, but just as importantly, it offers an efficient interface for demanding tours with its free-rotating attachment and integrated fatty climbing wire (attached to the binding instead of heel plate). Another cool feature is the ability to attach Burton Splitboard Crampons (not included) for extra traction across icy glaciers and treacherous snow. The rest of the binding sports Burton's premium components for the best in comfort and support when you're skinning up and ripping down the lines of your dreams. The Single-Component Hi-Back is stiff enough for charging steeps and railing dreamy carves down springtime corn, with strategic padding to eliminate calf bite and pressure points. Negative forward lean enhances your stride on the skin-track, all without requiring a tool with its quick-adjust lever. Burton's Hammockstrap is the same as what you'd find on their award-winning Genesis and Malavita bindings, offering a secure, boot-wrapping fit. The Supergrip Capstrap hugs the tip of your boot, ensuring a non-slip fit for riders plunging down chutes and open bowls at high speeds. Please note, the Hitchhiker comes with brackets and heel plates, but it doesn't include Spark R&D ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
