UNION (noun)

1. 2. 3. 4.

An association for a common object. An organization of persons sharing a common interest or purpose. A place where two or more things are united. A bringing together or being brought together into an integrated whole.

THE PAST:

10 years ago, snowboard bindings were merely an accessory.

THE MISSION: It seems like yesterday – A decade ago Union Binding Company burst onto the scene with a small, focused collection of snowboard bindings, and a new approach to the way bindings should ride. With numerous First-to-Market materials and a bombproof baseplate designed to allow for an even and true board flex, the stage was set for the future of the brand.

In the years to follow, Union Bindings quickly became known for quality, durability and incredible consumer demand. With remarkable sell through, Union has cemented itself as the #1 performing brand in the binding category at retail. The “Stronger” motto not only stands for our product - It represents all facets of the company. From product, to delivery, sales & customer service… From arguably the best team in snowboarding, to the amazing friendships and genuine approach to doing business… Our 10 Year Anniversary is only the beginning.

In the pages to follow, you’ll see Union has taken another huge step forward. Reinvesting into new materials & processes like Forged Carbon™, Duraflex™, and Vaporlite™ we’ve continued our quest to advance product progression and develop best bindings that ever hit the snow.

GRADE 8.8 HARDWARE

VAPORLITETM EVA BUSHING

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, we use only the strongest steel (featuring a property class of 8.8) on ALL hardware.

UNION BINDING COMPANY

Union has been pioneering the concept of minimizing “dead zones” since our first prototypes started taking shape back in 2003. It’s a simple fact—the larger a binding’s baseplate footprint, the more effect it has on the way your board flexes. Union baseplates are designed to provide supreme strength with the smallest footprint possible—crucially reducing interference with a board’s true flex.

02

INJECTED MAGNESIUM This high-tech process produces a material four times the strength of aluminum with only half the weight. Plus, magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant material on the planet.

03

EXTRUDED ALUMINUM Extruded aluminum is one hundred percent pure and maintains its true shape no matter how much wear and tear you inflict upon it. Union was the first company to bring the extrusion process to snowboarding and remains the only one using it.

04

ANODIZED ALUMINUM HARDWARE By increasing the thickness of the natural surface oxide layer, the anodizing process beefs up a metal’s strength by thirty percent. It’s also significantly lighter than normal hardware.

05

GRADED 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 is put under, we use only the strongest steel (featuring a property class of 8.8) on ALL steel hardware.

06

DURAFLEX NYLON After two full years of research, and completely exclusive to Union, Duraflex blended nylon is specifically designed for cold temperatures - offering unsurpassed levels of strength and longevity. A new era for nylon plastic components.

ALWAYS INNOVATING Union stands firmly by its original commitment to the evolution of snowboard bindings. That’s why, over the last ten years, we have introduced cutting-edge materials and processes, and pioneered new levels of durability and performance. Our commitment is further evidenced by our exceptional sell-through and near zero warranty. We give snowboarders what they want, and back it up 365 days a year.

COMPARISON: HOW PLASTIC COMPARES TO FORGED CARBON

FORGED CARBON

PROCESS ANALYSIS: WHAT MAKES FORGED CARBON UNIQUE Our forging process makes it possible to form complex shapes in a single piece, without any wasted material. Compared to traditional, laminated carbon, Forged Carbon fibers aren’t oriented in any particular direction, which produces a much stronger finished product that can take on great impact from any direction.

WEIGHT COMPARISON TEAM HIGHBACK VS. ULTRA TEAM (PLASTIC) ULTRA (FORGED)

“Forged Carbon is a technology developed specifically for engineering complex threedimensional geometries that need to resist stresses of variable type, direction, and magnitude. When we started this project, I was shocked by the intensity of the loads to which professional riders like Travis and Gigi subject these bindings.
