From backcountry pillow lines to laying down carves on the groomers, the Union Ultra FC will handle it all in any condition across the whole mountain.
5% Contact Area - Minimal board to binding footprint crucially reduces interference with your board's true flex and provides a more natural response and feel.
X-Carb Forged Carbon Baseplate - An industry first, and Union exclusive, the all new X-CARB material contains a very high amount of evenly blended carbon fiber, providing new levels of stiffness. X-CARB injection combined with Forged Carbon parts give you the lightest and highest performing traditional binding on the market.

Vaporlite 3.0 Baseplate Bushings - The next generation of Union bushings, the all new 3.0 takes over their True Flex philosophy to the next level. Multi-layered design provides a 3° canting and season long comfort.
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.

Exoframe/Air Ankle Straps - By using layered multi-density materials Union's Exoframe/Air straps provide secure durability along with superior comfort and flex. Strong, lightweight and highly adjustable, these are as good as it gets.
As important as connection between binding and board, equally important is the connection between the rider and binding.
