They are good when they are good!

The flex of the binding resembles a normal snowboard binding which you can really push hard and not have them fail you strength-wise. They flex great aswell compared to the standard aluminium binding systems, which allows freestyle tricks in the backcountry.
All this being said, i would not recomend buying these bindings if you are looking to have a binding that lasts more than one season. Note that i drive these bindings to the absolute limit with more than 60+ days in the backcountry per seasons. Personal experiences below:
- the pucksystem wears out fast, and makes it so that the binding will shift a few degrees back and forth while being locked in.
- the walking system has pins that are not screwed in, wich means that if you have not engaged the toe-links correctly, you are one step away from ruining your day in the mountain.
- the locki-in-lever breaks if you use too much force while trying to unlock the binding.
Union bindings are great, dont get me wrong. But personally i would wait for the updated version.
