  • $819.00


Karakoram has the Alpine series and the Connect series. The 'Alpines' are truly meant for touring in the backcountry and fully equipped to do so. Karakoram enables you to ride splits and solids with a single binding. Karakoram's motto says it all: 'Buy more boards, not more bindings'. The 'Alpine' bindings are light, easy to use and very responsive. Compared to the Connect series, they offer less comfort and are less suitable for the resort. The name says it all: the 2022 Karakoram Straightline is made to leave a mark. Awesome speed with unprecedented responsiveness. The stiffest variant of all Karakoram bindings. The unique 3D-shaped baseplate extends below the foot. The handmade Carbon Highback provides unparalleled flex. Together with the upgraded 2.0 interface, this makes the Karakoram X-Carbon the final result of a unique combination of epic constructions and techniques.

Performance: The Karakoram Straightline is for going fast with loads of response. The chassis consists of 6061 Alloy Aluminium for better control on uneven terrain. The baseplate is made from a combination of High Strength Alloy Aluminium and Stainless Steel, so the binding is not the lightest in the line. With two high sidewalls you will get maxiumum power transfer and grip while side-hilling. All Karakoram bindings nowadays have an Open Chassis, which means that all non-functional material has been milled away. Not only does this save weight, but it also provides a more natural flex under the binding. The Carbon highback is handmade out of a 100% carbon fiber. Because of this the highback is stronger and lighter than any other splitboard highback.

  • Two Time stronger Heelcup
  • High Sidewalls
  • Carbon Highback

Comfort: The Straightline is equipped with the AirForm Ankle- and Toestrap conforms to your boot with independent compression pods, eliminating pressure points and allowing for pinch point free flex. Keep your feet happy and boots snug in your bindings while touring and riding. Made from Dupont Hytrel, the AirForm straps when paired will shave weight and save your feet.

Air-Form Ankle + Toe straps

The Karakoram interface operates by using the signature lever at the heelcup that allows the binding to be released from the interface. The Dual Ride-Stride Forward Lean Adjuster on the highback is designed to be easily rotated 90° and 180°. This gives you a Forward Lean of -8° during touring and the possibility of 0° to 22° during boarding. All Karakoram Connect bindings available at Snowcountry are supplied with the Prime Connect 2.0 Interface. This binding from the 'Alpine' series includes a Dual-Speed Riser and Heel Lock. The Heel-lock makes it possible to ski down on touring parts going down.
