The most versatile binding in Karakoram's splitboard lineup, the Karakoram PRIME NOMAD W + Split Interface Splitboard Bindings deliver in any touring environment. With a chassis feel of "6" and a slightly stiffer highback flex, the Prime Nomad W is set for all day or all week missions into God-knows-where (hopefully you've mapped it out). Smooth, light, and quick and easy to transition with, this binding is money as soon as your step away from the resort.
DualSpeed Risers with Heel-Lock: These risers open with a pole basket, have two heights, and have a retractable heel lock that you can flip up when you need it.
Smooth Touring Pivot: Independent sleeves rotate freely on a fixed thru-axle, similar to a bike axle, making these stiff and smooth. They're wide for touring rigidity, they shed snow well, and the quick-releasing bracket allows for simple transitions.
Dual Ride-Stride: Highback goes from ride mode to walk mode with a 1/4 turn of the forward lean block. Ride Mode: 0° to 22°, in 2° increments, Surf Mode: 0° or 11°, Walk Mode: -8° allows for longer stride.
Prime System: Quickly attach your Prime bindings to your solid board with Quiver-Connectors or splitboard with the Ride Mode 2.0.
Ride Mode 2.0: Easy snow clearing, drop-on change-overs, and no slop. Ride Mode 2.0 ensures the most solid connection between all your components.
Interlocking Seam Tabs: No separation: tabs interlock across the seam of your board, interlocking and pre-loading the two halves for a solid ride.
Power Link: Getting your binding in and out of ride mode has never been easier than with Power Link, an ergonomic activation lever that allows you to remove your bindings or engage with one simple, fluid motion. Pull up to lock, push down to unlock.
Active Joining: No slop with instant response. Pre-loaded contact points create an ultra solid connection between your bindings and splitboard.
Open Chassis Design: Allows your board to flex naturally on its own, unaffected by bindings.
Asymmetrical Heelcup: The high sidewalls give support while sidehilling, and the low sidewalls allow for freedom of movement while riding.
Nomad X-Type Heelcup: 2X stronger than standard aluminum, these CNC'd baseplates transfer power with an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio.
Aluminum Hardware: Custom 7075-T6 screws and hollow pins mean every gram counts.
Flex (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – 6
Air-Pod Straps: Made from P-Lite TPE, which is 30% lighter than standard TPU. These lightweight straps feature Independent Pressure Pods that articulate to eliminate pressure points.
Airform Straps: Independent Pressure Pods articulate to boot eliminating pressure points and pinch points.
Super Pivot Ratchets: Low profile Nylon composite ratchets are robust, smooth, and up to 30% lighter.
Reactive Highbacks: Delivering featherweight support with precision feedback, these have a great stiffness to weight ratio.
