A favorite of snowboard wizard and Union Pro Rider Scott Stevens the 2018 Union Contact Snowboard Bindings are all about precise board control and true board flex thanks to minimal board to binding contact. Featuring a Duraflex MD Base which is the softest in the MD Family, these bindings are intended to replicate the feeling of riding a skateboard with loose trucks for unrestrained board feel. Perfect for easy maneuverability in the park when hitting rails and boxes with just the right about of dampening for rougher landings off hips and jumps thanks to the Multi-Density Thermoformed EVA Bushing under foot. If soft and loose bindings are your thing and you feel at home in the park the 2018 Union Contact Snowboard Bindings has all your freestyle needs covered.

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.
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.
