Dupont™ Zytel® STThe highest-quality nylon is used on all Union baseplates to result in strength, safety and security.

Additional Features

Extruded Anodized Aluminum HeelcupsThe 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 HardwareThe 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.

    Comments about Union Contact Snowboard Bindings 2013:

    These bindings are solidly built, but super flext. Perfect for park rats and jibbers. Great maneuverability, good flex in the baseplates means no dead spots at all. Every single thing is adjustable and 100% tool free making it perfect to dial everything in perfectly on the fly. The highbacks I thought are very interesting. The horizontal slits make them very torsionally flexible and the vertical rib makes them stuff and stable still. The straps are top notch to say the least. The ankle strap and thick and cushy and the to strap can be used over the top or the front of the toe. The only thing I don't like about these bindings is that the toe strap isn't the easiest to get off but the ankle strap comes off buttery smooth. Great bindings for someone who likes more flex in their ride.

      Comments about Union Contact Snowboard Bindings 2013:

      I finally got to ride my 2013 Union Contacts and they are amazing! They are very light and well constructed. They gave me all around great feel of the board and have a great flex. I liked them best in the park because of the great control. I do not have the hard release problem like others were saying so I have no downers for these, they are great!

            Union had a great line up last year and continue with this year. The Union Contact felt great, responsive, light as hell, and all in a simple highback binding. Impressive as always

            Comments about Union Contact Snowboard Bindings 2013:

            I purchased the green and red contacts. Overall I was fairly pleased with the performance. Very responsive and very light. My only complaint is that the colors bled into my boots. I have white boots and now they have a orange color bled into the front of the boot. While that bugged me it didn't change my overall opinion of the bindings. I love them.

                Bought these bindings and man the comfort, toe to heel response and pretty much everything are amazing.The bindings make my board feel like butter. Love the straps on these bindings, for easy eentry. The highback is flexy and makes the ride even more comfortable. purchased the lime and red ones and they look stellar. Great for pretty much anywhere on the mountain! Great price too tanks Evo!

                  I could tell that these bindings were of the upmost quality as soon as I took them out of the box. This is my first pair of union bindings and it won't be my last. I haven't tested them out yet, but can't wait.
