Duraflex™ CB MD Baseplate – The Mini Disk baseplate is designed to minimize dead spots between the binding-to-board contact area to a mere 5%. In translation, the minimized binding interface allows your board to flex naturally, boosting its performance and durability.
Vaporlite 2.0 Bushing – Featuring 2 distinct zones, Vaporlite 2.0 bushings are more firm towards the outside -- aiding the natural canting feel.
Mini Disk (MD) – A minimal contact footprint allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4x2 mounting pattern, as well as The Channel from Burton.
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.
UltraGrip X – All new for 16/17, UltraGrip X is the evolution of Union's thermoplastic anti-slip toe straps. Lighter, grippier, and even more comfortable.
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.
Ultra FC Highback – Working in harmony with the surfy feel of the MD Baseplate, Forged Carbon provides strength and rapid response for nimble board control and connection.
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.
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.
