Union - More than Just Snowboard Bindings
Union Bindings are a brand that can safely call themselves 100 % snowboarding. The folks behind Union have just one aim: to develop the best snowboard binding on the planet… and damn are they close! A Union binding is more than just a binding; it’s the ultimate connection between board and rider, a relationship you may know better by the name of freedom. It all began nine years ago when a few clever Italians made a collection of bindings that absolutely flew off the shelves. They outdo themselves every year, which is unsurprising when their bindings offer:
- The best performance
- The best fit
- Lifelong durability
What’s more, the company have stayed true to themselves, keeping individual freedom at the top of their priority list, without having some giant company pulling financial strings behind the scenes. Every step of their production takes place in house to ensure the highest quality and it’s this dedication that makes their products stand out. A core team of pro snowboarders like Travis Rice, Jess Kimoura, Dan Brisse, Danny Kass and more give regular feedback to help the design team constantly improve their product.
Binding Technology for Snowboarders by Snowboarders
All of Unions bindings are made of ultra-light, ultra-robust materials and the brand puts a tonne of time and money into developing the newest and best binding technologies. Here are just a few:
- DuPont™ Zytel® ST Nylon is an extremely robust material that makes their base plates even stronger and more durable than ever before
- Meta Fuse Nano-Technology: Tiny metal particles are fused to DuPont™ Zytel® ST Nylon to create a material that’s light as a feather yet hard as steel.
- Injected Magnesium: injecting magnesium makes a material that’s four times as strong as aluminium, as well as being super easy to recycle.
- Extruded Aluminium is a 100 % clean and robust material that guarantees long-lasting performance
- Anodized Aluminium - a surface treatment that makes the hardware even stronger
- 8.8 grade steel makes bindings virtually unbreakable
- CNC machined parts guarantee perfect fit with no excess material
- Sonic Fuse technology makes for amazingly durable multi-layer straps.
