Time to step up to the big leagues. The Karakoram SL Splitboard Bindings are a super lightweight, high performance backcountry tool designed for the most rigorous adventures. With high end materials, like Titanium hardware and Dupont Zytel highbacks, the SL Splitboard Bindings are ready to push the boundaries of backcountry adventure. Karakoram s Active Joining Techonology delivers the most secure and solid-feeling Ride Mode Interface on this side of the Mississippi. Backed by big mountain mad man, Jeremy Jones, the Karakoram SL Splitboard Bindings are the finest in splitboard technology.
Interface A wide support cradle increases tour mode rigidity, while an offset cradle allows snow to clear during entry. The tour mode clip locks the binding's sleeved touring pin in the cradle for the most secure touring connection possible.
Dual Height Riser Base Adjust your riser angle with Dual Risers for the perfect fit. 70 mm climbing wire comes standard with optional 55 mm and 85 mm climbing wires availiable.
Axle System Independent sleeves that rotate freely on a fixed through axle (similar to a bike axle) for the stiffest and smoothest touring pivot
Heel Lock Down Karakoram Heel Lock Down Technology will allow splitboarders to skate out of flat areas, side-step up small hills and traverse demanding side hills. The heel lock down is integrated into the climbing riser wire and base for a simple and unobtrusive design.
Quick release touring bracket allows for quickest and simplest transition
No removable parts ensures you won't lose any key components.
Active Joining Technology Five spring-loaded attachment points create a solid connection between the bindings and Ride Mode Interface. Pre-loading every interface delivers seamless transmission of rider input for the ultimate backcountry experience.
