Ridden by: Gigi Rüf
Rider Type: All Mountain
Flex Rating: Stiff
Vaporlite HD Baseplate Bushings - High density vaporlite is stiffer and more responsive than the traditional Vaporlite, but with all the same damping characteristics.
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 Carbon Highback - Forged Carbon is lighter and stronger than titanium. This highback tested 40% lighter than the already lightweight Union Team highback.
Tool-Less FLAD (Forward Lean Adjuster) - Easy adjustment allows you to customize your highback lean on the fly.
Exoframe 4.0 Ankle Straps - Thermoplastic anti-slip material form fits to any boot.
Ultragrip Wide 3.0 - Thermoplastic anti-slip material form fits to any boot. Now wider and more grippy than ever before. Pin-lock for extra security.
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.
3-Position Heelcup Adjustment - Minimize any toe or heel drag by dialing in your heel cups. Simply loosen heel cup screws and slide into the correct position.
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 heel cups undergo an anodizing process reinforcing the already bombproof apparatus with another 30-percent strength. It's serious strength in a streamlined package.
Camber Disk - The Camber Disk adds a small amount of camber to the mounting disk to help keep your mounting hardware tight all season long. Compatible with 4x4, 4x2, and Channel mounting inserts, Union disks are bombproof and use the highest grade materials to insure the strongest connection between you and your board.
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.
