Product Info

Performance and durability at their finest, it's no wonder that the Union Factory Snowboard Bindings are the preferred binding of Union Pro Rider Torstein Horgmo. The Stage III Atlas Base works with the Sonicfused™ Ankle Strap and Team Highback to create a balanced ride that is both damp and comfortable, while remaining responsive edge-to-edge. The Canted Power Footbeds create a natural alignment for your joints, so you can ride a wide stance without the pain. The Union Factory Binding are a staple of durability and performance throughout the shred community.

Product Details

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.

Comments about Union Factory Snowboard Bindings 2015:

Overall, the binding is rugged. It's exactly the kind of construction I'm looking for in an all-mountain set-up. Highbacks are solid, baseplate is bombproof & straps are super cush. Only drawback is, they're bulky. I ride a Lib 159 and prefer the L/XL binding with size 11 boot. The trouble being, baseplates are massive & hang over the edges of board waist (245mm-255mm, maybe even 260mm). So, I've upped my set-up to a wider board (265mm) and they seem to fit. The bottom line, if you don't want to sacrifice board size for bindings, beware. None of the Union L/XL Atlas style trays will fit on a regular board.

    Comments about Union Factory Snowboard Bindings 2015:

    Bought these to replace my bulky unresponsive burton bindings. These bindings have about a medium flex which I grew to love this season. Great for park, pow, and just cruising. Love the toe straps, fit and secure much better than burton. And the comfort level is unreal. Had heard so many good things about Union, and they did not disappoint! Highly Recommend!

      Comments about Union Factory Snowboard Bindings 2015:

      These bindings are pretty awesome. They are replacing worn out Burton Malavidia's, and the Union;s win out in almost every way. The Union's have a stiffer base and more ollie power. They have a little less board feel than the Burtons, but still feel quite good. The Union's are quite comfortable with nice straps. I see what people have been saying about the big base plate it just fits and I have a wide board. Overall these bindings are keepers for sure. Great construction, easy in and out, awesome power transmission, I'm more than happy with these guys...

        Comments about Union Factory Snowboard Bindings 2015:

        I'm somewhere on the line between advanced and expert, though definitely closer to the advanced end of the spectrum. I ride up in Colorado on a small but quality local mountain, where we see a wide range of conditions and all types of terrain. I'm an all-mountain kind of rider, but I also like to get in the park and mess around from time to time.
        These bindings are great. Fit is right (and very adjustable), the comfort is there (padded, canted footbed does serious work), and the performance is better than anything I've owned prior to these. I strapped these suckers to a Lib Tech TRS and haven't looked back since. The responsiveness and control I feel under and between my feet is unparalleled by anything I've ridden before, and my feet never seem to get sore, which was a problem I've had with previous binding/boot set ups. The adjustable toe strap is the key to this, I believe, as my wider and bulkier feet often lose circulation on a long day of riding. Not with these suckers, however. I can go all day and end up with nothing but that good old fashioned foot stank when I finally peel off the boots at the end of the day. Praise Jah. Thank you Union Factory Bindings!!!!

          Comments about Union Factory Snowboard Bindings 2015:

          Alright guys honest review here:
          I wanted to love these bindings and I am sure I would have if everything worked out.
          I am a size 10.5 boot and I wear Burton boots with foot print shrink tech. I ordered size M/L, however the straps were so short they would not fit around the boot and even with a longer replacement the padding in the ankle strap was offset. So, I did what any normal person would od and return them to EVO since they rule at customer service ( no sarcasm) and order the L/XL. So I get the L/XL and they fit the boot ,NICE!.I go to put the binding on my NVR SMR cobra regular and guess what? The base plate hangs over the edge.. I mean this thing is huuuuge. So now my only option is to buy a wide board. Seeing how I just bought the regular cobra this is getting to be a hassle and I don't want to sacrifice a narrower board for a bidning.
          Bottom line is the base plate on this Union binding is massive and will not fit most if not all regular boards. I am returning the L/XL and buying some Flux SFs. I really wanted to ride these based on the review but it wasn't meant to be. Big thanx to Evo for their amazing customer service!

          If you're looking for a binding that is built to last this is the binding for you. As soon as you pick the binding up you can feel the quality in the construction. Only con is sense the binding is built to last that is reflected in the overall weight of the binding.

            first impression on the bindings was very satisfied with my buy. they are very well built and look nice. i ordered M/L and i ware size 11 boots. that is the recommended size max… and yes it is the max. its a little bit of a struggle to strap in i only get 2 clicks on the toe strap and 5 ish on upper one. this is alright i guess its still very secure. i am a park rider tho and these bindings fit my needs. but in the end i'd have to say that these are the best bindings i have ever had and love them.

              I bought these bindings to replace an older pair of Union bindings that I have had for a few years now. I was happy with my old pair, but I am extremely happy with this pair. I've ridden them twice now and I was presently surprised with how Union has improved over the years. The quality and overall performance is top notch!
              I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend Unions to anyone who asked.
