Compared to other bindings in this price category, nothing else stands up. A brand within the brand, the Force from Union Bindings delivers the durability and purity of performance demanded by 100-plus-day-a-year riders. A strong binding that can handle any condition or terrain with all the features you need and nothing you don’t. Extreme all-day comfort, season-after-season dependability, and backed by a lifetime warranty base. The Force is very simply down for the duration. It is the snowboard binding that put Union on the map and created new standards for strength and dependability.
Arguably the most iconic Union part of all time, the Force highback is a classic design that has stood the test of time. Performance, comfort, and durability are a few of the reasons it’s been redesigned, but not redefined.
The Stage 4 baseplate injected with Duraflex ST nylon provides stiffness and responsiveness which will last season after season. The rigidity and strength of the Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcup act like a roll cage on a convertible race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides a seamless response. Multi Density Thermoformed EVA Bushings sustain their function season after season - unlike competitors who use urethane, rubber or other materials that change colour and become brittle over time. All four corners of the baseplate are void of pressure points and promote true board flex.
The Ankle Straps of the Force Binding are sonic-fused. They are fused together from a multilayer composite to form a single articulated strap component. This item minimises stitching and increases pressure distribution and durability. The Ultragrip Toe Strap runs over the top of your boot or the toes. Length can also be adjusted by changing positions under the baseplate.
The straps come with injected Magnesium buckles, and this makes them four times stronger and two times lighter than buckles made from aluminium. On top of that, the magnesium is easily recycled and one of the most abundant elements on the planet.
