The Karakoram Nomad is part of the Alpine Prime Series. These bindings focus on the essentials and are the binding of choice for passionate split boarders. Technology and low weight are the main focus here. Among the Karakoram splitboard bindings, the Nomad is the one with the softest flex and is suitable for every splitboard adventure from a short tour to expeditions.
The stiff Reactive Highback offers an optimized ratio between stiffness and weight. Full control is guaranteed. The Prime Nomad has the Dual Ride-Stride Forward Lean so 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 X-Type Baseplate allows your bindings to twist with the torsional flex of the snowboard creating uncompromised board feel. The 7075-T6 Heelcup is 2x stronger than standard aluminium. With Power Link, you can get your binding out of ride mode in the easiest way by an ergonomic activation lever, which allows you to remove your binding or engage it with one simple motion.
The AirPod Ankle Straps focuses on the essential. Without bling, these straps focus on comfort and support at low weight.
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 Tour Step is the ultimate convenience when you need lots of change-overs between riding and hiking. You can simply keep your binding fastened to your boot while you change over, this will significantly cut down on your transition time.
