The Karakoram 'Alpines' are all equipped with the special X-baseplate. Unlike the Connect baseplate, this baseplate continues along the contact points. This results in extremely direct transfer and maximum control. The binding has an asymmetrical heelcup, with the outer side being higher for better power transfer and grip during touring and a lower inner side for more freedom of movement and a 'surfy' feel. The chassis consists of High Strength Alloy Aluminium for damping and better control on uneven terrain. The X-Type baseplate is made from a combination of High Strength Alloy Aluminium and Stainless Steel. All Karakoram bindings nowadays have an Open Chassis, which means that all non-functional material has been milled away. Not only does this save weight, but it also provides a more natural flex under the binding. The Reactive Highback is medium stiff and light weight. It gives the rider tweakability.

This binding is equipped with an Airpod Ankle and Air-Form Toe Strap. The Airpod allows for more comfort where the Air-form provides a better fit and more responsiveness. This is thanks to the closed structure of the Airpod. All unnecessary materials have been removed from the Air-Form Toe Straps, making the strap lighter and easier to pull over your toe like a hood.
- Air-Pod Ankle + Air-Form Toe straps
The Karakoram interface operates by using the signature lever at the heelcup that allows the binding to be released from the interface. The Dual Ride-Stride Forward Lean Adjuster on the highback is designed to be easily rotated 90° and 180°. This gives you a Forward Lean of -8° during touring and the possibility of 0° to 22° during boarding. All Karakoram Connect bindings available at Snowcountry are supplied with the Prime Connect 2.0 Interface. This binding from the 'Alpine' series includes a Dual-Speed Riser with Heel Lock. The Heel-lock makes it possible to ski down on touring parts going down.
