Here's a cool video Karakoram put together that tells the story of how and why the Kloster brothers started the company. Props go out to the brothers for following their dreams and making more great products for splitters to choose from.
Here's another video from Karakoram for your additional viewing pleasure.
In 2008 we started off as two brothers in a garage with a home-made CNC mill. Today we’ve grown into a manufacturer with customers worldwide and team of people who define Karakoram. You’re welcome to come by the shop, grab a beer and see how we build bindings.
We are mountain people. We are innovators. We are the builders of our products. Our designs and products are born from our mountain experiences. We are as passionate about our gear as we are about the mountains. We build products that we use. The belief that there is always a better way fuels our drive to create . Even though we are setting new industry standards with our products- we know we can make them even better and we will. We take pride in building each product as if it were our own gear. Our products are built with our own hands. By riders for riders. We love the mountains. We love creating. We love building our products in North Bend, Washington.
