With the FC Ultra union has stepped up the performance of snowboard bindings once again. The super stiff X-CARB material is combined with Forged Carbon parts give you the lightest and highest performing traditional binding on the market. Forged carbon is a technology that allows 3D binding components that were previously limited to plastic injections, but exceeds the strength requirements of plastic tenfold and is lighter as well. The benefits of Forged Carbon are obvious on a single run through the park. Ultimate board control, higher ollies and just a solid feeling.- Gigi Rüf
The Forged FC highback is designed to deliver ultimate heel to toe response and reliability. Forged Carbon exceeds the strength requirements of injected plastic tenfold. Lighter is only better when it is stronger. Forged Carbon is as light and strong as it gets.
The X-Carb MD baseplate features X-carb material, this is a material for snowboard bindings that contains a very high amount of evenly blended carbon fibre, providing new levels of stiffness and response. The rigidity and strength of the FC 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. The FC Vaportlite 3.0 bushing combines Forged Carbon and Vaporlite 3.0 foam to give you the best performance possible. The carbon offers exceptional response while the highest quality closed cell foam delivers superb cushioning. With the Minidisk, Union took the evolution of the innovative concept of minimizing dead spots a step further - a mere 5 % binding-to-board contact. All other Hardware is made of Grade 8.8, which is the strongest steel available on the market.
Independent suspension and support, the ExoFrame Ankle Strap is the ultimate in comfort and performance - They hold you in but don't hold you back. The UltraGrip X is the evolution of the thermoplastic anti-slip toe straps. Lighter, grippier, and even more comfortable. The straps come with Magnesium 2.0 buckles, this makes them four times stronger and two times lighter than buckles made from aluminium. On top of that magnesium is easily recycled and one of the most abundant elements on the planet. Magnesium 2.0 is 10 % lighter than previous Magnesium designs.
