Union Falcor Snowboard Bindings 2022
Designed and ridden by Travis Rice, the Falcor utilizes Carbon Forging and multi-density materials to create a lightweight and responsive all-mountain/freeride binding that's forgiving where you need flex, and responsive where you want direct connectivity. For 21/22 Union upgraded the Falcor with a thicker, more durable forged carbon spine, longer lasting magnesium S1 ratchets and brand new ankle and toe straps.

OTE Fused Vaporlite Bushings - An "industry first" that sets new standards for how a snowboard binding should function and perform. This new material utilizes an injection molding process very similar to the way plastic parts are created, making an element that is more waterproof, durable, and precise than any other EVA material on the market.
Non-Stick Gas Pedals - Fused Vaporlite Non-Stick Gas Pedals shed water and snow like nothing you've experienced before. Gone are the days of icy buildup under your boots.
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 Hybrid Highbacks - By combining Forged Carbon and glass injected nylon, Union's created a highback that allows flexibility for medial-lateral rotation while preserving a direct connection for edge to edge control. Power where you need it and the freedom to ride the way you want.
Classic FLAD (Forward Lean Adjuster) - Zero out your highback lean for mellow cruising or park laps, or crank it up a notch for those high speed assaults when you need extra leverage and board control. Easy adjustment allows you to customize your highback lean on the fly.
Exoframe 5.0 Ankle Straps - The Exoframe 5.0 utilizes tri-axial progressive flex for the perfect boot to binding fit and instant power and response when you’re ready to lay down a hard charging, high speed carve. Easily adjust your ankle strap to any boot with the quick snap of the pin adjustment, no tools needed. Just like all Union ankle straps, the Exofame series comes with the safety and security of DuPont™ Hytrel®, so you never miss a day of riding.
TS 4.0+ Toe Straps - Simple, lightweight, durable - The all-new TS 4.0+ toe strap keeps you locked in for the ride down without letting you know it’s there. A new shorter buckle base helps to reduce weight and pressure points. Easily adjust to any boot with the quick snap of the pin adjustment, no tools needed.
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.
Stage VI Duraflex CB Baseplate - Blended with carbon fiber, the Duraflex CB is lighter and considerably more stiff than typical fiberglass injected nylon resulting in a strength to weight ratio never before achieved in a snowboard binding. Developed, used, and abused by Travis Rice.
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.
Canted Gas Pedals - Ideal for riders who want a wide stance and extra leverage for ollie power. Canting also allows the ankle and knee joints to be aligned, alleviating pain.
Universal 4x2 Channel Compatible Minidisk - Designed to create a minimal contact footprint for even board flex.
Compatible with any traditional 4-hole or 3-hole snowboard mounting inserts, along with Burton snowboards featuring The Channel. You can mount Union Bindings on any board you choose.
Not compatible with 4x4 or with boards featuring powder pack setback insets.
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.
