Vaporlite HD Baseplate Bushings - High density vaporlite is stiffer and more responsive than the traditional Vaporlite, but with all the same damping characteristics.
Minimal Base Contact = True Board Flex - Union baseplates are designed to provide supreme strength while minimally interfering with your board's natural flex. Minimal board to binding contact means sweeter response, better board control, and improved durability.
Forged Carbon Highback - Forged Carbon is lighter and stronger than titanium. This highback tested 40% lighter than the already lightweight Union Team highback.
Tool-Less FLAD (Forward Lean Adjuster) - Easy adjustment allows you to customize your highback lean on the fly.
Exoframe 4.0 Ankle Straps - Thermoplastic anti-slip material form fits to any boot.
Ultragrip Wide 3.0 - Thermoplastic anti-slip material form fits to any boot. Now wider and more grippy than ever before. Pin-lock for extra security.
Magnesium Ratchets - This Union exclusive process produces a material 4 times the strength of aluminum with only 1/2 the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet.
Size-Proportionate Fiberglass Index - Bigger riders require stiffer bindings. Union proportionally increases the fiberglass content in each size of their bindings so that any rider who straps in will have perfect support.
3-Position Heelcup Adjustment - Minimize any toe or heel drag by dialing in your heelcups. Simply loosen heelcup screws and slide into correct position.
Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcups - A new process removes as much excess material as possible in the heelcup to reduce weight while maintaining tried and true strength. Union heelcups undergo an anodizing process reinforcing the already bombproof apparatus with another 30-percent strength. It's serious strength in a streamline package.
Grade 8.8 Hardware - The strongest steel available on the market - the use of Grade 8.8 represents Union's commitment of delivering the strongest and most reliable bindings on the market today. Top to bottom.
The most commonly used hardware is made from "mild steel" that has a property class of only 4.6. Considering how much stress a binding is put under, Union uses only the strongest steel (featuring a property class of 8.8) on all hardware.
Lifetime Warranty on Baseplate and Heel Cup - Covered under manufacturer lifetime guarantee against breakage of the baseplate or heelcup along with defects in materials or workmanship. This lifetime warranty DOES NOT cover broken bindings due to abuse or neglect, damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility, or lost parts due to lack of hardware maintenance.
Highbacks, straps, ratchets and other components are covered under Union's 1 Year Warranty.
100% Ownership, 100% Focus - Union is 100% devoted to making the best bindings on the planet. From discovering new materials to CNC machining a new baseplate, everything is done in-house with zero outsourcing. Every single piece of a Union binding is completely exclusive to Union.
