Product Info

It might seem flimsy and dainty for how light it is, but this binding brings out the big guns in power, performance and burliness. These beasts have worked off their excess weight by featuring a flite freestyle oriented baseplate and grown lean and mean with extruded heelcups for bombproof durability and Dupont™ Zytel® ST high-quality nylon used in the baseplates and highbacks. Show off these fairy-light, power hungry Flite bindings that will last you a lifetime.

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.

      Overall great bindings, very light so my rehabbed knee needed light to go back to and these made my overall board setup a feather, great comfort, highly recommended for everyone of all difficulties.

          Great bindings. REALLY light but sturdy. Easy to make adjustments. Union bindings are compatible with the burton ICS, you just need to buy the disk for like $10. I got the army green ones that look great on my board. The toe strap can be a pain to get off at first but you figure it out after a couple runs.

            Comments about Union Flite Snowboard Bindings 2013:

            This is a solid binding. In my opinion, much better than a Burton in the same price range. I stopped riding Burtons once I tried Unions. The straps and buckles are super stong, and crank down tight, will not slip. Weeklings, or girls may complain about it not releasing easy. I don't have problems with it though.

            The only bad thing about these bindings is that the toe strap is difficult to release.

              These bindings are very soft and forgiving, wouldn't ride any other. Amazing bindings.

              This is a very strong well built comfy binding. I mainly ride steep and deep. I love these bindings, the only complaint i have is it is near impossible to release the toe straps.
