2020 UNION STR
BUILT TO LAST.
Big mountains demand respect, and respect looks like the Union STR Snowboard Bindings. The highback and baseplate are made from aptly titled Duraflex material, engineered specifically to perform at a high level even in bone-chilling temperatures. Union s Exoframe and Ultragrip straps provide superb levels of power transfer and responsiveness down full-clench lines, endowing you with the board-to-boot connection you need for elevated riding. Not every good run on the mountain has a name on the map. Find out for yourself, armed with the Union STR Snowboard Bindings.
Minimal Base Contact = True Board Flex - Union baseplates are designed to provide supreme strength while minimally interfering with your board's natural flex. Minimal board to binding contact means sweeter response, better board control, and improved durability.
Duraflex Highback - Union exclusive Duraflex material was specifically engineered to maintain consistent flex in a wide range of cold temperatures.
Mini FLAD (Forward Lean Adjuster) - Easy adjustment allows you to customize your highback lean on the fly.
Exoframe Ankle Straps - Independent suspension and support create a seamless interface. This super cushioned and lightweight design comfortably holds you in, but won't hold you back.
Ultra Grip™ Toe Strap with Secure-Lock - Redesigned to feature multi-positional options with an open, Ultra Grip toe to keep your foot locked in.
Aluminum Buckles - Lightweight, fast in, and fast out. Union aluminum is second to none.
Size-Proportionate Fiberglass Index - Bigger riders require stiffer bindings. Union proportionally increases the fiberglass content in each size of their bindings so that any rider who straps in will have perfect support.
Stage V Duraflex Baseplate - This freestyle oriented baseplate comes canted with Duraflex injection. Ideal for those looking for more response at a price that won't break the bank.
Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcups - A new process removes as much excess material as possible in the heelcup to reduce weight while maintaining tried and true strength. Union heelcups undergo an anodizing process reinforcing the already bombproof apparatus with another 30-percent strength. It's serious strength in a streamline package.
Canted Gas Pedals - Ideal for riders who want a wide stance and extra leverage for ollie power. Canting also allows the ankle and knee joints to be aligned, alleviating pain.
Universal Disk - Compatible with 4x4, 4x2, and Channel mounting inserts, Union disks are bombproof and use the highest grade materials to insure the strongest connection between you and your board.
Multi-Density Thermoformed EVA Bushings - Union's innovative injected-EVA baseplate bushing system dampens vibrations underfoot to promote a more comfortable ride and a smooth, even board flex with no dead spots. Each binding size comes with its own durometer for custom performance.
Grade 8.8 Hardware - The strongest steel available on the market - the use of Grade 8.8 represents Union's commitment of delivering the strongest and most reliable bindings on the market today. Top to bottom.
The most commonly used hardware is made from "mild steel" that has a property class of only 4.6. Considering how much stress a binding is put under, Union uses only the strongest steel (featuring a property class of 8.8) on all hardware.
