The Prime-X Carbon Splitboad Binding is Karakoram's premiere binding for professional splitboarders. It's the lightest Karakoram binding available, and its extreme stiffness assures the unforgiving, instantaneous response that professionals look for while dropping the steepest lines down the biggest mountains. Updates for this season include a prepreg carbon highback for a lighter weight, a better fitted heel cup for better power transfer, and a more open chassis that allows your splitboard to flex naturally.

In Walk mode, the -8 degree forward lean elongates your stride to conserve energy on the long uphill skin. Ride mode delivers 0 to 22 degrees of forward lean (in two-degree increments) for quick-turning response when you're charging steeps. Ditching traditional climbing wires for a two-height riser that deploys with the quick flick of your pole basket, the Flip-Speed Riser conquers mellow approaches and more demanding ascents alike. Engage the shorter riser on long, flatter approaches or flip up the taller riser during intimidating, steeper climbs. Additionally, there's a heel lock-down feature that's ideal for skating across long flats and side-stepping small hills. This lock-down has a load equivalent to DIN 6. Specializing in efficiency, the Prime Interface uses the tried-and-true Tour ...

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.
