To be honest, the name alone speaks volumes about what the Union T.Rice Snowboard Bindings have to offer. With a stiff, responsive flex fit for massive hucks and mach-speed lines, the T.Rice Bindings won't wash out or bail when things get hairy. A Forged Carbon highback, developed by Travis himself, brings a lightweight, yet incredibly strong and supportive feel. These are the bindings that Travis Rice rides and frequently trusts his life to - strap in and feel the confidence.
Stage IV Duraflex CB Baseplate – Raw injected, pigment free Duraflex CB nylon provides increased base stiffness and durability. Backed with a Lifetime Warranty.
4 Point Multi-Density Thermoformed EVA Bushing – All four corners of the baseplate are void of pressure points and promote true board flex.
Universal Disks – Compatible with 4x4, 4x2 and Channel systems.
ExoFrame Straps – Independent suspension and support create a seamless interface. This all new super cushioned and lightweight design comfortably holds you in, but won't hold you back.
Magnesium 2.0 Buckles – Four times stronger than aluminum with only half the weight, Union buckles are built to last. The all new 2.0 design is 10% lighter than previous versions.
TR Hybrid Highback – Forged Carbon and Union patented Duraflex nylon integrate into a precise blend of performance and comfort. Developed with Travis Rice, this incredibly light and comfortable highback features a modern fit shape and durability levels second to none.
CNC Machined 3D Heelcup – Extruded aluminum comes out 100% pure and maintains it's true shape no matter how much wear and tear you inflict upon it - Strongest in the business.
Canted Gas Pedals – Ideal for riders using a wide stance, Canted Gas Pedals supply extra leverage for ollie power. Canting also allows the ankle and knee joints to be aligned, alleviating pain.
Grade 8.8 Hardware – The 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 Adjustments – No screwdrivers needed - Flip the levers for a quick and easy on-hill adjustment.
Union offers a lifetime warranty on baseplates and heelcups. If you break, or even crack your baseplate or heelcup during riding, they'll replace it for life. Guaranteed. All other parts are covered for 1 year from date of purchase.
