Features
New for Winter 12/13, Karakoram introduces its Heel Lock Down Technology. The Heel Lock Down is integrated into the climbing riser wire and base for a simple and unobtrusive design allowing splitboarders to skate out of flat areas, side step up small hills and traverse demanding side hills.

Note: Not intended for downhill skiing. The Heel Lock Down is designed for skating, side stepping and traversing. Climbing wire may deform and release with too large a load applied.

  • 2x lower base
  • 2x upper base
  • 2x standard climbing wire
  • 4x M6 x 10mm stainless steel buttonhead screws
  • Details:
  • Works with all Karakoram Splitboard Bindings (boards with ride mode inserts narrower than 3.375" will require minor modification)
  • Compatible with Kararkoram bindings only
  • Includes single heel riser wire
  • 4.0

    Makes long flats more tolerable

    Karakoram Heel Lock Down (Single Riser)
    I tried a set of these on a recent trip to the Wallowas. The route had a 6-mile Forest Service road approach which was pretty flat. Got lucky and hitched a tow in but it was all ride, ski, skate on the way out. In the locked down position, I found the skating and skiing much easier. Engaging and disengaging the lock down takes some practice and I can't say it's something you'd want to do repeatedly. But for the long flats where you can set it and forget it, it is definitely nice to have.
