With all updated Air-Form straps, the Prime SL for 2017 is the sleekest Karakoram yet! All models listed are fully updated with base plate colors you can't find anywhere else!
Make it right, then make it light. Karakoram‚s PrimeSL is a lightweight version of their Prime1 binding. Same basic features, but with a carbon fiber highback, 7075-T6 heelcup, titanium pins, and air strap toe strap. The mods drop the binding wight by 13%, and the energy you save with each step means more energy for powder laps and distant objectives.
In walk mode, the binding moves back 8 degrees past vertical for long strides; the sleeved axles create a stiff, smooth pivot; the Flip-speed risers adjust to two climbing heights with your pole basket; and offset cradles help to keep snow clear on entry. Switching to ride mode is fast; with no removable parts, there‚s nothing to drop and lose in the snow. In ride mode, the open binding chassis flexes with the board, the bindings allow set-and-forget forward lean up to 22 degrees, and the four attachment points lock both sides of your board together. Other features: Stance angles between 30 and -30 degrees, 0.5 inch stance adjustments, CNC machined parts, on-the-fly heel lockdown with a release value approximating DIN 6. Karakoram splitboard clips required; not compatible with Voile hooks.
