The most trusted binding in snowboarding is back for its 16th season running. The Force is Union's go-to binding for anything and everything you can throw at it - cliffs, powder, side hits, double blacks...This all-mountain destroyer can handle it all. New for 20/21 we've hooked the Force up with the durability and response of the popular Exoframe 2.0 ankle straps. May the Force be with you.

Ridden by: Kevin Backstrom

Rider Type: All Mountain / Intermediate / Advanced

Flex Rating: Medium

FEATURES:

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.

HIGHBACK

Force Multizone Highback - Injected with Duraflex blended nylon and made to taper towards the top for three separate flex zones. This highback is lighter than the standard Multizone Highback for next-level heelside response and board control.

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.

STRAPS

Exoframe 2.0 Direct Connect W/Hinge Ankle Strap -  Redesigned and fine tuned, the all new Exoframe 2.0 Ankle Strap functions as a suspension system for your feet. Improved comfort, extended durability, and an all-new hinging system that allows for easier entry. Extremely responsive.

Tool-Free Ankle/Toe Strap Adjustments -  No screwdrivers needed here. Simply flip the adjusters by hand to fine-tune your fit.

Hex Grip 2.0 Toe Strap -  Ergonomically designed to fit any boot shape, super grippy and complete with tool-less adjustment.

Multi-Position Toe Strap Adjustment - High-performance, highly comfortable toe straps keep your feet locked in and on point. Multi-position cored toe straps allows you to ride your straps on top of the boot or over the toe for the ultimate in premium personalization.

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.

BASEPLATE

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 IV Duraflex ST Baseplate -  Blended to provide a smooth and responsive ride, Duraflex ST Nylon retains this intended performance in a broad range of temperatures.

3-Position Heelcup Adjustment - Minimize any toe or heel drag by dialing in your heelcups. Simply loosen heelcup screws and slide into 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Binding Sizes:

Medium: Men's 8-10 / Women's 9-11
Large: Men's 10-14 / Women's 11+
