The advantages of the Karakoram Prime Connect R are more than obvious. With the Prime Connect R, you have all mountain bindings that allow you to quickly and effortlessly swap your bindings from board to board with the Quiver Connectors (sold separately). In addition, you can convert the Prime Connect R into a splitboard binding with the Split Kit. With the Prime Connect R, Karakoram offers us one of the most versatile bindings on the market.
The stiff Reactive Highback offers an optimized ratio between stiffness and weight. Full control is guaranteed. The Prime Connect R has the Dual Ride-Stride Forward Lean so that you can enjoy the full benefits of Karakoram technology when splitboarding. The Ride Stride Forward Lean allows you to switch from Walk to Ride Mode in seconds.
The Dupont Zytel Chassis Baseplate is engineered to give you the flex you need without sacrificing response. Trussed Sidewalls add heel-to-toe stiffness. With the EVA footbed, you can ride all day long at the resort and your feet will be happy. The Active Joining technology consists of 4 pre-loaded contact points that load the bindings to the board enabling direct power transfer to the edges. This avoids energy loss and offers an instant response.
The Airform Straps focus on the essentials. Without bling, these straps focus on comfort and support at low weight.
