2020 Union Ultra Snowboard Binding in white
THE NEW ULTRA
A flagship model and team favorite, the Ultra showcases the full arsenal of Union technology. Revolutionary Forged Carbon response, working in harmony with our innovative shock-absorbing Fused Vaporlite foam provide comfort and performance that have to be ridden to be understood.
FUSED VAPORLITE +
The next generation of Fused Vaporlite has arrived. 20% lighter than the original and still just as waterproof, durable and vibration canceling. Exclusive to Union Binding Company.
NEW FC HIGHBACK
Taking notes from the Strata, the all-new Ultra FC highback has been redesigned for increased durability and features 20% more bombproof Forged Carbon than previous models.
- (NEW) HIGHBACKS: ULTRA FORGED CARBON HIGHBACKS
Exclusive to Union. Forged Carbon exceeds the strength requirements of injected plastic tenfold. Lighter is only better when it's stronger.
- (NEW) STRAPS: HEX DIRECT CONNECT
Contouring perfectly around the outside your boots, Hex Ankle Straps are incredibly durable, and light as a feather.
- (NEW) BASEPLATE: STAGE 6 DURAFLEX CB
Blended with carbon fiber, Duraflex CB is lighter and considerably more stiff than typical fiberglass-injected nylon parts.
- HEELCUP: EXTRUDED 3D ALUMINUM HEELCUPS
The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response.
- (NEW) BUSHING: OTE FUSED VAPORLITE+ W/ NON-STICK GAS PEDAL
Fused Vaporlite Non-stick gas pedals shed water and snow like nothing you've experienced before. Gone are the days of icy build up under your boots.
- (NEW) TOE STRAP: HEXGRIP W/ SECURE-LOCK
Toe strap adjustment has been redesigned and reinforced with double the connection strength, thanks to the new pin system. Multi-Positional options and thermoplastic anti-slip material keeps you locked in and on point.
- BUCKLES: MAGNESIUM 2.0 RATCHETS
Four times stronger than aluminum with only half the weight, Union buckles are built to last. The new 2.0 design is ten percent lighter than previous versions.
- Our Take: Torstein has chosen his weapon and it’s built on a Vaporlight 2.0 base with Forged Carbon highbacks and the Exoframe/Air ankle straps are one of the best feeling binders on this beautiful round earth. This binding is the best balance between lightweight and stiffness. The Ultra can be ridden aggressively or mellow for a surfy feel. With only 5% plastic touching your board; you get 360 degrees of movement so you know the binding is going to react to every movement.
- Rider Profile: All mountain Killer!! Go anywhere and dominate everywhere. For the rider who wants a super aggressive binding while beating friends to the bottom of any run in any condition and making it look easy. Don’t shy away from the kickers either with this bad boy.
- Inside Scoop: Forged Carbon is designed by Lamborghini for the chases of their race cars. Enough said.
- Size Chart : Medium: 8 – 10 / Large: 10+
