The 2018 Union Legacy rides like an aggressive high-end mens binding, but with a 100% female specific anatomically correct design. The Legacy is not for the faint of heart, and offers premium performance designed for big mountains, hard carves, and world class competitions, with a responsive flex that does what you want, when you want. The incredible tech in the Legacy keeps the performance high and the weight low, making it one of the lightest bindings ever produced at a minuscule 699 grams. This is achieved through using lightweight, durable materials, like magnesium ratchets, sonic fused ankle straps, and closed cell foam bushings that absorb impacts and dampen vibrations in your board, creating a smooth, high-performance ride that can take on anything the mountain throws at you.
Flex: 6/10 - Medium (1=Soft 10=Stiff)
Board Compatibility: This 2018 Union binding comes with a Union mini disk, compatible with 4x4 and Channel binding mounting systems.
Baseplate: Duraflex ST Legacy Baseplate
The Legacy baseplate is like one big shock absorber, using Duraflex ST 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.
Highback: Asymmetric Legacy Highbacks
The Legacy Highback is a design exclusive to this model, with an anatomically correct shape and streamlined design that provides a seamless boot to binding interface with lateral freedom for maximum leverage. The highback is also extremely responsive and durable so it can take a thrashing.
Buckles: Magnesium Buckles
A construction process completely unique to Union allows them to make their ratchets out of Magnesium, resulting in a product that is 4 times stronger than aluminium while being half the weight. Not only that, it's easily recycled so the environment benefits too.
Straps: 3D Asymmetric Sonic Fused Ankle Straps
A multi-layer composite strap core that is fused together to form a single, articulated strap. This minimization of stitching increases the straps durability and reduces weight. Additionally, it evenly distributes pressure across your boot for increased comfort and response.
Cushioning: Integrated Vaporlite Bushings
The Legacy has more cushion for the pushin' that's for sure. Multiple densities in multiple zones, the EVA bushing allows for a super surfy feel that will happily absorb underfoot vibrations and offer added cushion where you want it and response where you need it. The Vaporlite Full Bottom Bushing system allows for natural canting, all-season long comfort, and maintains it's superior dampening characteristics in cold temperatures providing a cushioned ride that can't be matched and even pressure distribution for true board flex.
