"From the root to the fruit! Seeing the Falcor come into existence over the last few years, I couldn't be happier with the team at Union and their dedication to building the best binding possible. Hassle free, feather light and strength that goes the distance ''- Travis Rice
To reflect the level of riding and force that Travis Rice is known for, the Falcor snowboard binding from Union combines materials with multiple densities into both baseplates and highbacks to take full advantage of each material's best attributes. The result is a ride that is forgiving where you need flex and responsive where you want connectivity. Dialled performance leads to new levels of experience.
By combining Forged Carbon and glass-injected nylon, Union has created a Forged Hybrid Highback that allows flexibility for medial-lateral rotation while preserving a direct connection for edge-to-edge control and a flex profile that compliments Travis Rice's aggressive riding style. The highback perimeters allow the flex needed to dial in your style, while the centralised forged carbon beam preserve looseless power into the board. Power where you need it and freedom to ride the way you want.
Developed, used and abused by Travis Rice. The Stage 6 Base is built with Duraflex CB Nylon, integrated with super cushioned Vaporlite 3.0 Bushings to bring the next generation of Union to the forefront. Union has developed a manufacturing process called "Microfused Injection", which focuses the nylon injection entry point around the disk ring, where strength is more crucial, resulting in the lightest/strongest base to date. The multi-layered design of the Vaporlite 3.0 bushings provides a natural 3° canting and season-long comfort.
The rigidity and strength of the Extruded 3D Aluminium Heelcup act like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides a seamless response.
All new for season 17/18, the ExoFrame/Air Ankle Strap produces strength and rapid response on the outside, fit and pillowed comfort on the inside. The Magnesium 2.0 Ratchets are built to last and four times stronger than aluminium, with only half the weight. The new 2.0 design is 10 % lighter than previous versions.

Everything at Union is created in-house guaranteeing that only the very best products hit the shelves. With a jam packed team of a-list snowboarders, Union have secured their place in the limelight.
