    Beautifully crafted by a rasta spirt, these binding catch eyes. They also provide the large amonut of flex needed technical tricks. Overall these are a very strong park setup!

      Comments about Union Contact Snowboard Bindings 2014:

      Its a very playful binding for park and street riding. Highbacks are very flexy and allow for full range when pressing. Straps are very comfortable and easy to get off. Allows easy adjustment. I live in mn and ride park/street for the whole season and these bindings go hand and hand with that style, if you prefer a soft flexible skate feel like me pair these up with a flat kick and prepare to get stoked. Only thing that's not great about them is if you have wide boots they probably aren't going to fit well bc they have a narrow base since they are designed to be minimalistic.

        Great ratchets and comfortable footbed, the straps could be easier to adjust but not bad. Nice and flexible for jibbing but still have a good enough response for a bit of free riding. Overall good construction and will soon be putting them to the test of a couple years of riding.

        I ride this bindings with a 2014 Capita 151w horrorscope. It's a very jib friendly binding, easy to tweak out, stable when u just free ride, the 2014 toe strap is improved with the new release buckle, but somehow I still get stuck once in a while if I crank it all the way down. Lifetime warranty for the base plates, can't go wrong with that.

          Very good cushion on the bottom of the bindings. one thing to note. You have to tighten the bolts before every day of snowboarding. I might just need to break them in a bit but they get loose pretty quick.
