The Prime Connect-R Splitboard Binding is Karakoram's first binding tuned for all-mountain snowboarding, but that doesn't mean it's only meant for in-bounds riding. With Karakoram's revolutionary Prime System, this binding is removable so you can take it off snowboards with Quiver Connectors (included with bindings) to put it on splitboards with the Prime Connect Split Conversion Kit (sold separately). You might have different boards and boots for riding resort or backcountry, but you can use the same binding no matter where you ride. And as for the binding itself, well it certainly meets Karakoram's strict standards for snowboarding performance. Equipped with a Reactive highback, the Prime Connect-R optimizes its strength-to-weight ratio, and maintains a medium flex for lateral support when you need it most. A stiffer flex is found in the Open Binding chassis for unrivaled response and an uncompromising board feel, while the Dupont Zytel chassis offers high sidewalls for more support and better power transfer while side-hilling. The chassis also has an EVA footbed for forgiving comfort that absorbs shock and provides long-term cushioning for all-day riding.
