Why We Like the Karakoram Prime Nomad Splitboard Bindings

The Karakoram Prime Nomad splitboard binding is the best bang for the buck for those looking for walking uphill with easy and ultimate downhill performance.  Climb any peak with their frictionless walk mode and utilize the drop in change over before crushing the ride down.  Not the lightest, not the heaviest, but by far the best splitboard binding for the price.   Grab a set of EVA foam pads and quiver connectors and attach them to any snowboard when riding inbounds.

With Karakoram’s Active Joining technology, you can literally toss the binding onto the prime interface connections (aka  Ride Mode 2.0) and watch the bindings drop into place.   Then with one simple throw of the oversized integrated heel lock, the binding bolts securely into place with zero tolerances for any slop or wiggle. This system will auto clear snow and ice.   

Utilizing “active joining” the wider connection points increase leverage for improved power transfer to your edges. The higher full length sidewall gives greater support for better power transfer and grip while side-hilling, with a shape that is more conducive for freestyle riding. The lighter aggressive “airpod” strap has independent pressure pods that pull into your boot from the sides without placing direct pressure on the front of your foot. Thus eliminating the need to frequently place your bum in the snow and release your straps due to pain and discomfort to keep you and your feet happily riding all day long. 

The Prime Nomad has a new lightweight and stiffer Reactive Highback (8/10 stiffness). This highback is very comfortable with a scalloped top to eliminate top-of-boot pressure points and is very responsive into turns with a nice side-to-side range of motion. All Karakoram highback feature the Dual Stride Ride that allows you to have 2 different forward lean angles preset and only needing a quarter turn to switch to walk mode.  

The Prime Nomad shines on the uphill with independent sleeves that rotate freely on a fixed through-axle (similar to a bike axle) for a stiff and smooth touring pivot.  The Dual Speed riser is easy to use with your ski pole baskets.  Simply drag the snow basket under the corner to bring up the risers to full height or easily bring them down a notch.  When you don't need them, you can plop them back down with the pole basket as well.  With Karakoram splitboarding bindings you get everything out of the box--even "split ski mode"!!  Integrated in the risers are a slick “quick lock” to secure your heels for those dreaded downhill skins.  (Makre sure to test these when you set up the bindings to have the spacing and tension correct)

Riders around the world can now shred like the pros without breaking the bank.  If performance is what matters to you, then grab a pair of Karakoram Prime Nomads today.

    High Pricepoint for a GREAT product

    It took me a little bit of research and trial and error to mount and set up the bindings, but once I got over the learning curve, these have been excellent. The heel risers are crucial to my success on the two uphill routes I have been able to do so far. The transition from board to ski and back has been easy and effective. Overall, great product.
