Universal Disk - Compatible with 4x4, 4x2, and Channel mounting inserts, Union disks are bombproof and uses the highest grade materials to insure the strongest connection between you and your board.
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.
CP1 Highback - Possibly the lightest plastic highback designed, the CP1 is outstanding for all types of snowboarders and all types of terrain. Developed with Gigi Rüf, and the perfect complement to to the Flite Base.
Quick Flip Forward Lean Adjustment - 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.
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.
Flite Duraflex Baseplate - Flite is short for F-ing light, and that’s exactly what it is. The Flite base features the same bomber Dupont Zytel ST nylon base construction in a super lightweight, freestyle-oriented design with the same concrete lifetime warranty as all Union bindings. During injection the even mold flow design provides incredible Duraflex strength with less overall nylon material.
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.
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.
Union: 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.
