  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is another variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered board and a flat board.
  • Shape: True Twin
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.

A binding so light it would float away on its own, the Union Flite Lady Snowboard Bindings are the choice for chicks looking for a simple yet highly durable binding without all the unnecessary fluff. Don't hold back with these bindings, they're built to last with the Dupont™ Zytel® ST Highbacks and Extruded Anodized Aluminum Heelcups that Union has pioneered in strength. The Flite baseplates give this women-specific binding what it's known for, a featherweight feel so you're not dragged down or held back anywhere on the mountain. The Flite Lady is a prime example of one of Unions savvy designs.
Baseplate
Women's-Specific Flite Base - Super lightweight, freestyle oriented design with a lifetime warranty
Injected EVA Bushings - They dampen vibrations underfoot to promote a more comfortable ride and a smooth, even board flex with no dead spots. Each size comes with its own durometer for custom performance.
Universal Discs
Straps
Direct-Connect Strap System - Multi-Layer material evenly distributes pressure.
Tool-Free Size Adjustment
Injected Aluminum Buckles - Fast in, and fast out. Union aluminum is second-to-none.
All-New Open Toe Straps - Multi-positional options with open Ultra Grip™ Design
Highback
Dupont™ Zytel® ST Highbacks - The highest-quality nylon, used on all Union baseplates, maintains flexibility and strength in the widest range of temperatures. The result is strength, safety, security and the confidence of a lifetime warranty.
Quick-Adjust Forward Lean - Tool Free Adjuster allows on-the-fly forward lean adjustment.
Additional Features
Extruded Anodized Aluminum Heelcups - The strongest and most versatile aluminum heelcup on the market, extruded aluminum comes out 100% pure and maintains its true shape no matter how much wear and tear you inflict. Also, every Union heelcup undergoes an anodizing process—reinforcing the already bombproof apparatus with 30% more strength.
Grade 8.8 Hardware - 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 goes through, Union uses only the highest-strength steel, with a property class of 8.8.
