When you're forced to use a splitboard to get where you want to be, then carrying around extra weight is a terrible idea. To cut down on this problem, Karakoram
made the SL Binding. The SL is made with Carbon Fiber, Titanium, High Strength Aluminum Alloy and Dupont Zytel to give you a binding that is 200+ grams lighter then its predecessor. Using a Carbon Fiber Highback, you get both an extremely light and durable binding that will be able to stand up to anything you encounter in the backcountry. Pick up the Karakoram
SL Splitboard Bindings and embrace the next step 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
Quick release touring bracket allows for quickest and simplest transition
No removable parts ensures you won't lose any key components.
Cored Out Heelcup - Made from a high strength Aluminum Alloy that is over 2x stronger than standard Aluminum, which is cored out using CNC to remove unnecessary material to maximize the strength-to-weight ratio.
Raised Heelcup Side Wall - High sidewall supports boot for better power transfer and grip while side hilling. The flared sidewall cups boots for a better fit.
Five spring-loaded attachment points create a solid connection between the bindings and Ride Mode Interface.
Aluminum Harware - 1/3 the weight of Stainless Steel and 2x as strong
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
Carbon Fiber Highback - Featherweight performance due to the biaxial weave carbon fiber and multi-layer composite layup, which gives you an optimal combination of stiffness and comfort.
Quick Adjust Forward Lean - Spin between your desired ride mode forward lean and -5˚ forward lean for skinning.
Titanium Pins - 1/2 the weight of stainless steel pins and 3 times stronger
