Product Details - 2014 Union Contact Pro Bindings
Lightweight response seems to be the thing all riders strive for, none more that Union rider Gigi Rüf . The Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings offer the lightest weight material, the smallest, most evenly-distributed board flex in the game, and Gigi's stamp of approval. Full of options to increase strength like the Dupont™ Zytel® ST, the Contact Pro is stable and easy to ride in all conditions. Grab a pair of these flossy bindings, throw them on your board, and hit the slopes, knowing that you'll be a whole level above the rest with a binding that decimates its opponents.
Product Specifications - 2014 Union Contact Pro Bindings
Baseplate- Contact Pro Base - Strength-to-weight ratio that is second to none. Similar to the original Contact Pro base just better and more durable, with the same old Lifetime Warranty. Dupont™ Zytel® ST - The highest-quality nylon, used on all Union baseplates, results in strength, safety, security and the confidence of a lifetime warranty. All-New Multi Density EVA Bushings - Multi-zone full bottom bushing system for a stronger, better baseplate.
Straps- 3D Direct-Connect Strap System - Multi-Layer Tapered Strap Core evenly distributes pressure.
Multi-Layered Tapered Strap Core
Magnesium Buckles - The magnesium in the buckles is four times the strength of aluminum with only half the weight. Plus, it is easily recycled.
All-New Toe Buckle System - Multi-positional options with open Ultra Grip™ Design
Contact Pro Highbacks - Incredibly light and comfortable, Gigi Ruf approved. Symmetrically made for an even and controlled response.
Shift-on-the-Fly Forward Lean - Quick and easy to use, adjust your forward lean with a simple flip of a knob then slide it to wherever you want and re-lock it. Easily done while waiting in those pesky lift lines.
All-New Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcups - This process removes material to reduce weight but maintains strength.
Grade 8.8 Hardware - 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 goes through, Union uses only the highest-strength steel, with a property class of 8.8.
All-New Universal Mini-Disk - Fits on every board, including the Burton Channel System just with a minimal contact frootprint design to allow even board flex. Mini, but tough as nails.
