Union Ultra Snowboard Binding – 2017

MSRP: $419.00

The Union Ultra is not only technology packed, but also one of the most balanced bindings in the industry. One of the more aggressive bindings built by Union, the Ultra features a forged carbon highback for a highly responsive and lightweight structure. This aggressive highback paired with the softer baseplate and Vaporlite 2.0 foot bed, allow for a surf style feel, while remaining supportive and responsive when you need the extra power.

Vaporlite 2.0 foot bed and bushing system is built from closed cell foam similar to that found in high-end running shoes. The foam is water resistant and riding characteristics don’t change due to temperature or wear, so board feel will remain constant over time. It is combined with Union’s mini disk system means a mere 5% binding to board static contact area, and thus improved board feel and flex without sacrificing durability or responsiveness. There is no wonder snowboarding legends Gigi Ruff and Bryan Iguchi are behind the design and stand by the Ultra as their binding of choice.
