Built to minimise the time it takes to convert from climb mode to ride mode, the Union Split System built in the Expedition is not only simple to use, but the unique connection between binding and board also maintains the torsional strength of your splitboard. This gives you the performance you expect from your snowboard, along with the performance you expect from Union. No compromises were made to the binding platform when redesigning it around the function of splitboard performance. Union uses the same guaranteed heelcups, ratchets, straps and materials in their split binding as they do throughout their entire product line.
Split Pin System
Pins serve as a common method of connection for some of the top performing split system on the market. Union takes this mounting approach a step further by combining the pin with their Split System baseplate for further connectivity. Between the baseplate and the pin, the percentage points of connection are greater than pin-only systems, allowing for a stronger interface between binding and board.
The symmetric Expedition Duraflex Highback is designed specifically for touring. It features an adjustable quick-snap forward lean adjuster that goes from tour to riding mode with the flick of your fingers.
Once injected with Duraflex ST Nylon, the SP1 Expedition base becomes an even stiffer, backcountry access machine. Developed and rigorously tested by none other than Travis Rice and Bryan Iguchi.
The 3D Symmetric Straps with Direct Connect System lock you in with zero strap elasticity. The MultiLayer Core inside provides supreme comfort and conforms across the top of your foot. The Magnesium Ratchets are built with a Union-exclusive process that produces a material 4 times stronger than aluminum, with only half the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet.
The rigidity and strength the Extruded 3D Aluminium Heelcups 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 Synthetic EVA 3.0 Bushings are shock absorbing, durable and are an outstanding compliment to the smooth, natural ride of the X-Carb SP1 Base.
