The Karakoram Split30 Splitboard Bindings are the tried and true work horse of the Karakoram line-up. For the past several years, the Split30 has conquered peaks, devoured uphill mileage and demolished a lot of pow. Karakoram features we have come to love can be found all over, like the Ride-Stride system for incremental high back adjustment for going uphill and riding down, a burly Ride Mode Interface that ensures your bindings are locked down and ready to shredy, and the Dual Height Riser and Heel Lock down for those awkward moments you need to break out your poles and skate-ski or side-step out of trouble. For a setup that has passed the test of time, check out the Karakoram Split30 Splitboard Bindings.
Tour Mode Interface Wide support cradle increases tour mode rigidity // Offset cradle allows snow to clear during entry // Quick release touring bracket allows for quickest and simplest transition // No removable parts ensures you won't lose any key components
Heel Lock On-the-fly heel lock down // Release load equivalent to DIN 6
Sleeved Axles Independent sleeves rotate freely on a fixed through axle (similar to a bike axle) for the stiffest and smoothest touring pivot.
Ride-Stride Walk Mode A -8° forward lean setting to help you stride further with every step because the highback isn’t pushing against your calf
Heel Lever Quick Release lever allows for quick and easy attachment or removal of binding to the Ride Mode Interface.
Ride-Mode Interface Five attachment points create solid connection between binding and Ride Mode Interface // Heel stay pins push through attachment loops driving snow and ice build-up out of the way // Wide openings of attachment loops allow for easy alignment
Ride-Stride Ride Mode Allows you to preset your forward lean between 0° and 22° - in 2° increments - to give you better leverage on your heelside turn and make your ride down more powerful and enjoyable.
Wide Contact Points Improve responsiveness between bindings and board - CNC machined parts have all unnecessary material removed to create the lightest splitboard binding available.
Ride-Stride Forward Lean Saving energy in the backcountry can be the difference between going for a second lap, going for a longer tour, or going home because you’re wiped out. All Karakoram splitboard bindings come standard with patent pending Ride-Stride forward lean with a Walk Mode and a Ride Mode, to help you save energy whether touring or riding. With Ride-Stride technology you don’t have to fiddle with small parts while your hands are cold to adjust your forward lean, just simply rotate the forward lean adjuster 90° between Walk Mode and your preset Ride Mode- set and forget. Ride-Stride is the fastest and easiest forward lean adjustment available.

Comments about Karakoram Split30 Splitboard Bindings 2015:
I have been splitboarding off and on for years, and prior to these bindings I didn't have splitboard specific bindings. My old bindings worked ok with the puck system, but this one piece interface is such an upgrade! They are quick and easy to switch modes, and the performance on the ride down is great!
