For Karakoram, experience is driven by performance. High performance snowboarding is more than transport, more than jsut trying to get down the hill. It is dynamic, playful, aggressive, unpredictable, fuid. Communicated through feel, punctuated by turns, performance becomes an improvised conversation with the mountains. We need gear that we can push as hard as we push ourselves. We want to focus on our environment and our riding – nothing else.
