Product Info

Designed by Union Pro Rider Gigi Rüf, the Contact Pro is one of the most sought after bindings in the Union line. Weighing in at only 720g, the Contact Pro focuses the strength of Duraflex™ in critical areas of the base for power, and takes full advantage of EVA dampening everywhere else. With only a 5% binding-to-board footprint, the Contact Pro has little effect on the board's true flex and provides a more natural response and feel. The Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings are the perfect binding for the rider looking to take their freestyle shred to the whole mountain.

Product Details

Baseplate

Contact Pro BaseExtremely high strength-to-weight ratio. Made of Dupont™ Zytel® ST making the baseplate durable for endless shred.

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

Multi Density EVA BushingMultiple zones of EVA create this restorative full bottom bushing, giving you natural canting and vibration dampening for season-long comfort.

Straps

3D Direct Connect Strap SystemMultiple layers of durable and lightweight material in the core evenly distribute pressure across the top of your foot, giving you a comfortable and responsive ride.

Buckles

Magnesium BucklesA high-tech manufacturing process produces a material that is extremely strong, durable and mega-lightweight. Plus, magnesium is recyclable and is one of the most abundant materials on the planet.

Highback

Contact Pro HighbacksDeveloped and tested by Gigi Rüf. The highbacks are incredibly lightweight, extremely comfortable and perform superbly on all terrain.

Shift-on-the-Fly Forward LeanQuick and easy to use, adjust the forward lean with a simple flip of a knob then slide it to wherever you want and re-lock it. Easily done while waiting in those pesky lift lines.

Additional Features

MinidiskMinimal binding-to-board footprint. Significantly reduces interference with your board's true flex and provides a more natural response and feel. Compatible with 2x4 and The Channel.

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 is under, Union uses only the strongest steel on ALL hardware.

Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2015:

When installing the binding, start by fully screwing in one bolt without the washer. This makes it easier to screw in the rest of the bolts with the washers on. Then, go back to washerless bolt, unscrew it, put washer on bolt, screw it in and, BANG! You have one union binding setup. Now preform same instructions on other binding and you're good to go.

      Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2015:

      This is the first Union binding i have used. Overall i love this binding.

      The Toe/Front strap works very well to keep your boot down and back in the binding. The footprint of the screws to the board is very minimal.

      I love the ratchets on this binding as they feel very strong and you dont have to leverage on them very hard to get a snug fit down onto your board.

      The only problem i had was i could have sized down one size and fit with my boots better but doesnt affect my review of the product.

        Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2015:

        These are the only binding I will be buying from now on. They are very durable, I beat my gear to a pulp but these have held up better than any other pair of bindings I've had yet.

        A little feature that most people wont really notice at first is that the straps have a twist knob for the adjuster instead of a screw, meaning you can adjust your straps without any tools at all, while wearing gloves.

        I highly recommend these to any rider that needs a binding to do it all.

        These are the lightest, most durable snowboard binding I've ever owned and that's saying a lot. Any skill level could use them and for any terrain. And honestly there Gigi ruff's pro bindings so they're going to be awesome. Also gotta note Gigi was rider of the year !

          Comments about Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings 2015:

          These bindings are great the main straps have memory foam that really make them secure on any boot, the bindings are extremely lightweight and way better looking than the Union forces. The tool free adjust is great especially since they are new and adjustments will need to be made after/during your first couple of rides. The baseplates cushionig is lightweight and definitely helps when making some harsh landings. Union has made a great product as I was previously coming from some burton customs and the unions are light years better. And Evo supplies this product quickly and with their great customer service. Cheers !

            Lovin the new Contact Pro and the very small footprint mounting / surface area. The flex is second to none with completely secure feel.
            BTW, the light weight will pay dividends and then some!!
