Product Info

Karakoram's belief in "no compromise" is extremely obvious when it comes to the Karakoram Split30 Splitboard Bindings. Using a simple lever system it takes roughly two minutes to go from touring to riding mode (or riding to touring mode), and that's counting the time it takes to break down your poles and pack your gear! Ralph Backstrom has been quoted saying, "It's insane how close this system brings your splitboards's performance to that of your resort board." When you want to begin your trek into the backcountry, make sure you're using the right equipment; make sure you're using the Karakoram Split30 Bindings.

Product Details

Tour Mode

Dual Height Riser BaseAdjust 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 SystemIndependent sleeves that rotate freely on a fixed through axle (similar to a bike axle) for the stiffest and smoothest touring pivot

InterfaceA 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.

Quick release touring bracket allows for quickest and simplest transition

No removable parts ensures you won't lose any key components.

Baseplate

Five spring-loaded attachment points create a solid connection between the bindings and Ride Mode Interface.

Made from a combination of Aluminum alloy and Stainless Steel to give you a durable, secure binding

Heel stay pins push through attachment loops driving snow and ice build-up out of the way.

Wide contact points to improve responsiveness between the bindings and board

Highback

Made from Dupont Zytel for a secure fit

Additional Features

Uses existing splitboard hole pattern or comes with DIY mounting template

Comments about Karakoram Split30 Splitboard Bindings 2013:

First, the good:
1. They are beautiful looking bindings, I love looking down that them from time to time. 2. Simple, lightweight, practical. No unnecessary parts, ride/stride switch is nice, heel lock mode is a nice feature as well. 3. System all locks in nice and tight in ride mode. 4. Innovative ideas. The way the touring system works is amazing, and the ride mode is great too, BUT there are some negatives...
1. Ride Mode interface is tight and precise like I said, but it almost seems too precise. It's all smooth sailing when you're in your bedroom practising, but that changes when you're on a slope in deep powder trying to put it all together. Unless the whole system is completely free of snow, it can be a challenge to get the pins all right into their slots.
2. Adjustable switches on the binding straps came loose on touring mode when i was skinning in skinny tracks. This got kind of annoying as I would feel like the binding was loose, then realize it was just the adjuster.

All in all, a very nice system. I think it will just take a little while for me to get used to it.

    Nice and stiff when in ride mode, smooth movement in touring mode. Heel lockdown is a great feature, makes XC much easier over long distances.

        These bindings are light, durable, and much much better than others I have had before (Voile). No heavy plates, no complicated pins, easy in and out. Its a dream for splitting.
