In our endless journey to make splitboard equipment the best it can be, Karakoram will be releasing a new heel lock down system for 2012-13. The heel lock down will be compatible with all Karakoram Splitboard Bindings (Split30, SL and Prime) starting from 2010. The purpose of the heel lock down is to allow splitboarders to skate more efficiently on flat terrain, and traverse and side step without skins on in tour mode.
The Karakoram Heel Lock Down will be available for upgrades to your current Split30 or Split30SL set up in Fall 2012.
Nice, looks slick guys! Lots of forest service roads here in Oregon where those will be really useful! Can’t wait to try out a pair….
What will you guys come up with next? I never thought you would someday be able to skateski with a splitboard! I Love the Efficiency of this setup! You guys have changed my life!
I don’t see the prime binding on your store site. When will we see it?
Prime bindings will be available late fall 2012.
awesome!! I was just talking about this on our last trip out a couple days ago. When can we expect to be able to purchase these bad boys and where is the list to sign up?!
Justin- We’ll have the heel lock downs available fall 2012.
This is what every backountry kiteboarder have been waiting for! It’s soo much easyer to climb mountains in “ski-modus”!!
Thank god. Now I can cancel my telemark lessons.
Stellar stuff as usual. From the first pic it appears that you guys might be modifying the high back and support to create a flow/gnu/k2 cincher style binding. These are awesome for splitboarding and it is about time someone lead the charge. With ski touring boots proclaiming the benefits of greater high back flexibility while touring flats (dyanfit tlt5 comes to mind), splitboarding will benefit as well! Please help us! JB Van BC
