BANG FOR THE BUCK
Compared to other bindings in this price category, the Force stands alone. We have combined superb materials, features and function that merge into an overall value that is second to none.
Binding Type: All Mountain
Flex (1 - Soft / 10 - Stiff):
Board Compatibility: This 2019 Union binding comes with the universal baseplate, compatible with 2x4, 4x4, and Channel binding mounting systems.
Baseplate: Stage 4 Duraflex ST Baseplate
The Duraflex blended nylon in this baseplate is designed specifically for the cold, and maintains its strength and intended performance across a broad range of temperatures. The design of the baseplate aims to maintain the true flex of your snowboard, while still dampening chatter and keeping its strength.
High Back: Force Highbacks
The Duraflex injected multizone highbacks found on the Force binding are supportive, durable, and feature a tapered shape towards the top, promoting flex and tweakability for huge stylish presses and grabs.
Buckles: Magnesium Ratchets
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: Classic Pro Ankle Straps + Ultragrip Toe Straps
The Classic Pro Ankle Strap is designed specifically for the Force, featuring a wider, more traditional design to complement the performance of a snowboarding icon. The Ultragrip Toe Strap offers multi-positional functionality and superior grip with a simple, highly durable design.
Cushioning: Multi-Density Thermoformed EVA Bushings
These bushings maintain their performance season after season. Where other materials would deteriorate over time, Unions bushings stay consistently strong even after seasons of use. The EVA removes pressure points on all four corners of the baseplate and dampens your ride, absorbing chatter and hard landings, and dual density EVA under the heels and toes plus a full EVA foot bed with adjustable toe ramp gives awesome boot to binding to board response.
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.
