Dupont Zytel ST Baseplates are constructed of an extremely light blended nylon material. Super strong, yet still incredibly light. They do not become brittle at low (mountain) temperatures, and provide a really usable balance of stiffness (response) and compliance (comfort)
3D Heelcups are extruded from a single block of aluminium. It’s not the cheapest method, but it’s the best process available on Aluminium heelcups, outstanding strength and longevity.
EVA Bushing is multi-layer foam padding that sits between your board and your baseplates. It absorbs vibration and shocks, resulting in a silky smooth, comfy ride from first tracks to last chair.
Contoured Ankle Straps are ergonomically shaped. These comfortably match the profile of your snowboard boot, and when set up correctly using tool free strap adjustment, reduce pinch or pressure points.
Open Toe Straps are new for 2014/15. One of the very few criticisms that Union bindings have received over the years, are with the shaping of the toe straps on some models. New for 2014/15 is an improved toe strap profile.
Injected Aluminium buckles are strong and light, and don’t jam up in the cold.
Free Ankle Strap Adjustment allows quick and easy adjustment of your ankle position while on the hill.
Flite Pro Highbacks are out of place on a binding that costs less than £150. Based on the original Contact Pro highback from 2012 (designed by Gig Ruf), they are super light thanks to the (almost excessive) cut outs. Super comfy, stunningly light, and they look pretty good too.
All New Binding Disks are compatible with 4x2, 4x4 and Burton’s Channel system.
Grade 8.8 Hardware is a nice touch. The majority of snowboard binding hardware uses ‘standard’ steel. In engineering terms, this would be described as ‘mild’ or low tensile steel, as it generally measures 4.6 on a Rockwell scale. Union use ‘High Tensile’ steel that measures 8.8 on a Rockwell scale. Bigger the number, the less chance of breaking/stripping/rounding your hardware.
