Union Charger

Comments about Union Charger Snowboard Bindings 2013:

i have been riding union force bindings for a long time and really like what they have done over the years. The Charger was everything I want in a binding. Flex under foot with the plastic tray but super responsive edge to edge. The carbon high back is a nice touch for the guys like me that rely on there high backs to shut it down fast. My only complaint on this binding is how tight my size 9 32 boot fits in the medium/large tray... but tighter is better with bindings.

Comments about Union Charger Snowboard Bindings 2013:

Very nice set of bindings. These things have a serious highback that is stiff and responsive. The ankle straps are top notch. My only gripe with these (and all Unions) are their lack of a release tab on the toe strap. They work OK regardless, but sometimes take a little fiddling to get them to release. They are fully adjustable, look good without being cheesy. These are a high end binder, but these things are tanks. Recommended for the hard charger who wants a stiff light set of binders.

    Comments about Union Charger Snowboard Bindings 2013:

    Good overall binding. Light, stiff, and comfortable. The toe strap releases a bit harder than my other bindings. I bought L/XL bindings, have size 11 burton boots, and have adjusted them as small as they can go. Maybe M/L would fit better.

    Comments about Union Charger Snowboard Bindings 2013:

    This is unions stiffest binding and also its most responsive. I had it pair with a Capita TFA and it was such a great ride. The Ladders were efficient and the starps were soft like marshmallows. The carbon highback was very light and very stiff. This binding will handle the biggest of big-mountain lines I'm certain. But it was also fun cruising in spring time slush. I will most likely be buying a pair of these next season. Charge on!

    The Chagers were awesome, stiff, responsive and clean. Colorway looks better in person.

    Fell in love with this bindin! Highback is super stiff edge to edge but is playful tip to tail. The staps are super cush. This binding is super light too.
