Built to last. The all.new Union STR is the binding for stepping up to larger drops and more technical lines. For riders looking for the performance of the Atlas at a price that's nice, the STR maintains everything you would expect from Union's high end: Canted Stage 5 Base, TR16 Highbacks and Bone-Out Straps make choosing the STR a no brainer. Ideal for riders using a wide stance, Canted Gas Pedals on the STR supply extra leverage and ollie power. Canting also allows the ankle and knee joints to be aligned, alleviating pain.
With an unprecedented performance for the price, the STR represents Union's philosophy that there is no such thing as "entry level" in the Union family of bindings. Constantly investing and reinvesting into products is what sets Union apart from the competition.
Developed with the same mentally as the Falcor highback, the TR16 Highback features a dual material combination to increase rigidity through the areas of the highback that benefit the most. For riders looking to progress, the STR offers an unadulterated feeling of how your binding and board torsionally flex together.
The ST Stage 5 Duraflex Base is perfect for All Mountain / Freeride based riders looking for serious bang for their buck. Canted and bombproof, the ST blows away everything in its class.
The Multi-Density Thermoformed Bushings sustain their function season after season - unlike competitors who use urethane, rubber or other materials that change colour and become brittle over time.
The rigidity and strength of the Extruded 3D Aluminium Heelcup act like a roll cage in a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base is ideal for all around heelside support and control.
Light as a feather and super comfy, the Bone Out Straps feature a 3D Symmetric design that eliminates foot pain across the top of the foot. The new mechanism fast in and fast out of the Aluminium Ratchets combined with Union's aluminium is superior to any binding ratchet on the market - with the exception of Union Magnesium.
The one product approach! Union Bindings decided to eliminate any distraction and to solely focus on what they do best: bindings. 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.
