Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2016:

Everything you want and more. Can make any setup ridiculously lightweight, feels like your feet are being hugged the entire day, and with the foam baseplate snow and ice don't collect or freeze to the binding!! Straight kills it, nothing more to be said.

Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2016:

I mounted these bindings on my Never Summer Proto HD. I replaced my Burton Mala Vita bindings with them. The Unions give me more adjustment options. The damper ride is awesome and makes me feel like I am on a different board. As a snowboard instructor and resort trainer, I average about 100 days per season on the snow.

One of the best that I've used

Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2016:

Noticeable increase in flexibility. One of the lightest bindings but don't feel cheap. Very good build quality. Rachets among the best I've used. Lots of customizable positions. Only gripe is the thin upper foot strap. Even if a little bit too tight you can feel the pressure on your foot, as compared to the wider foot straps that distribute the pressure along more of your foot.

The Bindings for Everything

Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2016:

Simply the best binding available. I've tried the Force Pros and Contacts, other brands and models, and these come out on top. They're super light and strong, not too flexy and not too stiff. They have a super comfortable base cushion that dampens impacts and board shocks. Two of their best attributes are how precise they are for setting up rail presses and how versatile they are for all mountain riding. I ride everywhere on the mountain, from deep pow to the park to coming down hard on big kickers, and the bindings have to be able to manage all these conditions. These bindings do it all.

    Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2016:

    Bindings are very responsive making maneuvers much easier. Decent amount of flex as well making it a comfortable ride. Only con, I wear a size 11 boots and the binding (large) seems too narrow at the heel for my boot, starting to ware and tear on them. No discomfort though.
