The Cadet is a youth version of what the pros ride, built with light, durable materials and an ample range of adjustments for growing feet. This binding features universal compatibility between most snowboard mounting systems and comes with a TrueFit adjustable heelcup and toe ramp. The softer flex rating benefits kids who are just starting out with a more forgiving feel, and the Lifetime Warranty protects you against baseplate and heelcup defects for the entire life of the binding. With all this tech, your child will be able to advance quicker than ever, so ditch those rentals and get them their own pair of pro level Union bindings.
Minimal Base Contact = True Board Flex - It's a simple fact - the larger your binding's baseplate, the more effect it has on the way your board flexes. Union baseplates are designed to provide supreme strength with the smallest footprint possible, crucially reducing interference with a board's true flex.
Once bindings are mounted they create dreaded "Dead Zones"- areas under the baseplates where your board won’t flex. With this in mind, all Union bindings are designed to promote a free, even board flex for sweeter response, better board control, and improved durability.
Quick Flip Forward Lean Adjustment - Easy adjustment allows you to customize your highback lean on the fly.
Classic Ankle Straps - This pre-curved, multi-layer strap core conforms to your boot to help eliminate foot pain, and is easy to adjust and set up.
Tool-Free Ankle/Toe Strap Adjustments - No screwdrivers needed here. Simply flip the adjusters by hand to fine-tune your fit.
Ultra Grip™ Toe Strap - Redesigned to feature multi-positional options with an open, Ultra Grip toe to keep your foot locked in.
Aluminum Buckles - Lightweight, fast in, and fast out. Union aluminum is second to none.
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.
Stage V Duraflex Baseplate - This freestyle oriented baseplate comes canted with Duraflex injection. Ideal for those looking for more response at a price that won't break the bank.
3-Position Heelcup Adjustment - Minimize any toe or heel drag by dialing in your heelcups. Simply loosen heelcup screws and slide into correct position.
TrueFit Heelcup, Toe Ramp & Stance Adjustment - Once mounted to the board, adjust your heelcups and toe ramps to get your feet centered over the board to ensure the perfect setup.
The perfect interface from boot to binding, an adjustable toe ramp allows you to customize your platform underfoot to fit your boot size. A slight upward angle at the toes increases leverage for powering turns and minimizing toe drag.
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.
Universal Disk - Compatible with 4x4, 4x2, and Channel mounting inserts, Union disks are bombproof and use the highest grade materials to insure the strongest connection between you and your board.
Multi-Density Thermoformed EVA Bushings - Union's innovative injected-EVA baseplate bushing system dampens vibrations underfoot to promote a more comfortable ride and a smooth, even board flex with no dead spots. Each binding size comes with its own durometer for custom performance.
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.
