The Expedition is a super solid splitboard binding that utilizes a pin system going through the baseplate to reduce the overall time you spend converting from climb to ride mode. This Split Pin System provides strength and response to the overall torsional stiffness of your splitboard, while the Multizone Highback offers flex where you want it and support where you need it, all without compromising the lightweight feel of the binding. The Expedition is also Quiver Compliant, meaning all you have to do is mount up some Union Expedition Split Discs to what ever board is in your quiver and slap these on in a pinch. If you're looking for a solid pair of splitboard bindings, try these out; you won't be disappointed.
Overview - Pins serve as a common method of connection for some of the top performing split systems on the market. Union takes this mounting approach a step further by combing the pin with their Split System baseplate.
Between the baseplate and the pin, the percentage points of connection are greater than pin-only systems, allowing for a stronger interface between binding and board.
Force Multizone Highback - Designed to be even lighter than the standard Multizone Highback for next-level heelside response and board control.
Injected with Duraflex blended nylon and made to taper towards the top for three separate flex zones. The result is flex and tweakability where you want it, support and durability where you need it.
Quick Flip Forward Lean Adjustment - Easy adjustment allows you to customize your highback lean on the fly.
Forma Ankle Straps - New and improved, the design of the Forma Ankle Strap produces strength and rapid response on the outside, and pillowed comfort on the inside.
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.
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.
Duraflex ST SP1 Baseplate - Once injected with Duraflex ST Nylon the SP1 expedition base becomes an even stiffer, backcountry access machine. Developed and rigorously tested by none other than Travis Rice and Bryan Iguchi.
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.
Non-Stick™ Synthetic EVA Bushings - Union's EVA damping system helps suck up vibrations from riding fast and on rough snow surfaces. This synthetic material now features a unique Non-Stick™ coating to prevent ice buildup on your footbeds and highbacks.
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.
