The Union Force Bindings have been a staple in the line since day one because they are the most reliable and durable binding on the market. Lightweight, strong, and dependable, the Force has proven itself time after time and truly defined Union as a major competitor in the industry. The all-new Force has been redesigned from the ground up with all new base plates, high backs, heel cups, straps and ratchets for increased responsiveness, weight reduction, and strength. A stage 5 injected Dupont base plate is used for added strength, vibration absorption, and weight reduction. All Union Bindings offer a lifetime warranty on their base plates. 80% of the base plate is covered with EVA dampening for a smoother ride and even flex distribution. This technology puts less pressure on your snowboard for a longer life. Extruded 3D aluminum heel cups reduce weight while maintaining superior strength. Multizone highbacks allow for flexibility where you want it and durability where you need it. Magnesium buckles have been added which are extremely lightweight and give your straps extra durability. Pick up the Force bindings and see why they have been a best seller for years.
