Stevens Union Binding Demo

Comments about Union SL Snowboard Bindings 2013:

These bindings rode a lot like my Forces but just lighter. I thought the straps were kind of soft but really liked them after a few runs. The SL has the new Atlas tray as well which seems a little lighter than the Force tray and I really like the new highback with the new forward lean adjuster.

Comments about Union SL Snowboard Bindings 2013:

Do it all binding. Slightly stiffer highback than the Atlas so if you are looking for a more rigid/responsive binding without completely breaking the bank, this is it. Comfy, user friendly, great performance.....what more can you ask!
