I've been beat to posting info about the Karakoram store going live. I put the store up last week to start taking pre-orders for full Split30 systems and board clips. We're offering a discount for anyone who pre-orders. There are more details on the Karakoram Blog: http://karakorambc.blogspot.com/2010/08 ... -sale.html At this time we are only selling product in the United States and Canada.

Our retail pricing is a bit higher than the competition, but we are also offering an entire new platform and not just the bindings. For comparison a Universal Kit ($160) and Bindings ($299) go for $459, so we're about $140 more.


Haha, I just saw it today... sorry for beating you to the punch :)

So to clarify, if I bought your kit, I would just need to buy Skins? I guess it is not THAT much more then...

I didn't see anything on there about Crampons.


You are correct, skins and a board (production or DIY) is all you would need in addition to our kit. The Split30 kit includes: Bindings, Ride Mode Interfaces, Tour mode Interfaces, Board Clips, and Tip and Tail Clips.

We will be releasing crampons this winter. They should hopefully be available Decemberish.

just looking at the Ride Mode Interface picture
www.karakorambc.com/split30_tech_100801.html

the description says that the binding uses the existing splitboard hole pattern, the picture looks like there are extra holes. are extra holes needed?
I use a duck stance +/-12

No extra holes needed. The extra holes shown in the board are because the board in the picture is a DIY.

The standard stance angles are:
front foot: max 30°
back foot: max 5° min -30°

Duck stances are no problem. For directional stance we can swap out the rear foot to get more positive angle.

Do the Board Clips fit without having to do any drilling or anything? Specifically thinking of a Jones Solution with this.

No drilling required, all of our parts match up to the production holes.

Can you clarify what that means in swapping out the rear foot? Why would a more positive angle not be possible? My normal stance is borderline for the rear foot at 6 deg, but I do bump it up to 9 or even 12 deg depending on the route/conditions. What are the angle increments in your system.

Is there any drawback to using two of the same "foot?" Sorry if the questions are basic. despite riding for over 20 years, I am newb to the world of splits.

Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions, I am very much looking forward to putting my first splitboard setup together this winter and off of the short skis I've been using for my BC access.

I believe what Bryce means by swapping out the rearfoot simply means using a front baseplate in the back, too. The Karakoram baseplates are directional to favor a ducked stance and so using another front plate would just allow for +30 positive angle down to -5.

Thanks Russman, that makes sense. Looking forward to the season. Been a cool summer in Norcal, hoping it just keeps rolling right into winter with a deep snowpack.

So duck stance in ride mode is available with the normal setup? That is what I run. Not sure what the angles are. Just keep getting more duck foot the older I get? Weird.

Those toe ramps, how necessary are they?
When do you expect the first orders to ship out?

I think I'm going all out with Never Summer and Karakoram... :clap:

Thanks
