Product Details

Baseplate

Union baseplates are designed to provide supreme strength with the smallest footprint possible to reduce interference with the board’s true flex. The Union Contact has a DupontTM Zytel® ST Contact baseplate for optimum board flex and durability. The Union Contact also features universal disks compatible with any traditional 4x4 mounting system and 3-Hole, meaning you can mount the Union Contact Bindings on any board you choose.

Straps

The Union Contact Snowboard Bindings feature a direct-connect strap system and Union TrueFitTM strap technology to give you high-performance and highly comfortable ankle and toe straps that will keep your feet locked in and on point. The Union Contact Bindings also feature a honeycomb auto-fit EVA ankle strap.

Highback

The Union Contact Snowboard Bindings feature DupontTM Zytel® ST highbacks which are both incredibly light and incredibly comfortable and a quick-adjust forward lean.

Additional Features

The Union Contact Snowboard Bindings are packed full of tech extras; extruded anodized aluminum heelcups add 30% extra strength making these completely indestructible, while injected dual zone EVA brushings provide improved dampening and true board flex, toe cup design allows for multi positional options, and tool-free size adjustment. The Union Contact Snowboard Bindings use only Union’s highest quality carbon-injected DupontTM Zytel® ST nylon making them strong, safe, secure and more durable than any other.

    Comments about Union Contact Snowboard Bindings 2011:

    These bindings are super light, and super flexy - yet I can still get the response I need from them on a fast downhill run. I am using these with a zero camber board (K2 fastplant) and they flex amazing well with the board. I still can't believe they weigh so little yet provide such good support... I am a true believer of Union bindings now. I've owned Drake, Flow, Ride, and Burton bindings, but these take the cake. Plus, CMYK just ROCKS! :)The only thing to watch out for is that a batch of the M/L bindings this year got shipped with S/M straps. You can't tell unless you take apart the strap to get the plastic piece inside - but Union will hook you up with new parts if you were affected. A+ on customer service.

          Comments about Union Contact Snowboard Bindings 2011:

          im a big fan of these bindings. ive been using flow bindings for the last few seasons and i can get into these pretty much just as fast and they hold me in better. my only complaint is they seem to be taking some cosmetic damage already despite only using them a handful of times.

          Comments about Union Contact Snowboard Bindings 2011:

          Great park bindings. Very soft, allowing the bindings to flex and load up. The minimal baseplate and board contact allows the board to have more of a natual flex while other bindings create a dead zone. buckles are never a problem. straps and baseplate have perfect amount of cushions. very lightweight and simple design but still packs a lot of comfort, adjustability and tech. tested on my carpet wit capita fk board and vans aura size 8 boots. I'll update the review as soon as I hit the slopes.
