Product Info

For 11 years, the Union Force Snowboard Bindings have stayed on top due to their strength, dependability, and versatility. A medium flex for ample support and turning response without sacrificing park riding capabilities, combined with a vibration-killing EVA footbed and tool-free construction means you won't waste time going to the lodge to make adjustments or call it quits early because your legs are tired. Union s Force Bindings give you the performance you need for hard, aggressive riding and the comfort you want for chill days just cruising at a price your piggy bank can support.

Product Details

Baseplate

Stage 4 Duraflex STA stiff base combined with dual density injected bushing provides a high-performance response, comfortable dampening and a true board flex.

Multi-Density Thermoformed EVALightweight foam cushioning provides premium shock-absorption while maintaining board feel and natural flex.

Straps

SonicFused Ankle StrapFeatures a multi-layer composite strap core that is fused together to form a single, articulated strap. This minimization of stitching increases the straps durability and reduces weight. Additionally, it evenly distributes pressure across your boot improving comfort and lateral mobility.

Buckles

Magnesium BucklesThis high-tech process produces a material four-times the strength of aluminum with only half the weight. Plus, magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant material on the planet.

Highback

Force HighbackFlex and tweakability where you want it, support and durability where you need it. These highbacks give you next level heelside response and board control.

Additional Features

3D HeelcupMade of extremely durable extruded aluminum, designed to minimize toe drag while optimizing heel hold.

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.

Tool-Free AdjustmentsNo screwdrivers needed - Flip the levers for a quick and easy on-hill adjustment.

    I've had my old Forces since 2010. Finally upgraded to the new ones. Wow! These bindings are insane! New toe caps are incredible!

      Comments about Union Force Snowboard Bindings 2016:

      Love the bindings, the only frustration I'm having which is causing a lot of problems is the screws that came with these are so short they have been stripping the screw holes in my board. I actually had my right binding come completely off my board on my last run, thank god the guy I stopped next to had a screw driver on him. Time to get some new screws and see if it fixes the problem. Other than that the forces are super solid!

              Great bindings all the way around... my only complaint is that i own a dc ceptor boot (last years model) and i have to force the boot in and out of it due to the width of the binding.

                These bindings are great. My old bindings were a little too soft/flexible for higher speed riding. These are soft/flexible enough for playing around and stiff enough for charging down the mountain. Great choice for anyone!

                  I was able to adjust the bindings easily to account for boot hang, and for foot angle. One little nag I have it that when i tightened down the for the heel peice, some of the paint chipped of the head, but that's expected with painted screws. The bindings are light and really keep your boots in place on the board. I love these bindings.

                    Talk about amazing, responsive, and durable design. This is meant for a stiffer preference and is very responsive when you are ripping down the hill.

                      That guy above probably works for Burton. Totally off base, and talking out his butt.

                      Saying the Force hasn't evolved is like saying the 911 from Porsche has stayed the same over the past 30 years. Aesthetics are similar, but everything about the binding has been fine tuned. Best ratchets in the business.
