GIGI TESTED. RUF APPROVED.
Designed and endorsed by Union Pro Rider Gigi Rüf, the Contact Pro has become a staple within the Union collection with team riders and retailers alike. With a nominal binding-to-board contact footprint and softer flex overall, it is the perfect tool for riders looking for total freedom and a surfy board feel.
One of the lightest bindings ever produced, the Contact Pro focuses the strength of Duraflex ST in critical areas of the base for power, and Vaporlite dampening underfoot for cushioned comfort.
Patented minimal board-to-binding footprint crucially reduces interference with your board’s true flex and provides a more natural response and feel.
Binding Type: High End Freestyle
Flex (1 - Soft / 10 - Stiff):
Board Compatibility: This binding comes with a mini-disk that is compatible with 2x4 inserts, and the Channel binding mounting systems.
Base Plate: CP3 Duraflex MD Base
The Contact Pro baseplate is like one big shock absorber, using Duraflex MD blended nylon that provides a mid flexing base with added power that can perform all over the mountain. A minimum board to binding contact footprint of just 5% promotes the true flex of your board and provides more natural response.
High Back: CP3 Highbacks
Not only do these highbacks look amazing, they're incredibly light, comfortable, and suited to all types of terrain. Gigi would settle for no less.
Buckles: Aluminium Ratchets
A smooth and fast mechanism combined with Union aluminium creates a light and durable ratchet that feels good, looks good, and works even better.
Straps: Classic Lite Ankle Straps + Ultragrip Toe Straps
Classic Lite Ankle straps were once featured on Unions highest end bindings, but now have trickled down and found their way into the rest of the Union range, offering premium performance at an accessible price. The Ultragrip Toe Strap offers multi-positional options and is made from a thermoplastic anti-slip material to keep you securely locked in.
Cushioning: Thermoformed EVA Bushings
Thermoformed EVA bushings between the binding and your board sucks up unwanted board vibrations and absorbs impact, making your ride smoother and your landings less intense.
Extruded 3D Aluminium Heelcups:
This heelcup increased the stiffness of the binding, increases response, and is adjustable to help you dial in the perfect fit.
Quick Adjust Forward Lean:
No tools needed for this one, just flick the tab down and slide the panel for more response or a looser feeling ride on the fly.
