Early Release Review on the 2021 Union Force Snowboard Binding!On March 9, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hi, I’m Cameron with Next Adventure Sandy.
Today we’re looking at the Union Force binding. This is a great
all-mountain binding. It’s a little bit stiffer than some of the other bindings
I have on my wall. Things that I really like about this binding is this one
binding it’s great for riding the whole mountain. You can hit a little bit of the
freestyle terrain and then ride the rest of the mountain and still get away
with this binding. Some really cool features about the Union Force binding
this year is you get full high-back adjustability.
This changes the forward lean of your high-back and helps give you control of
your edges. The straps are fully adjustable to fit boots. They come in
three sizes, small, medium, and large. And within each size you have full
adjustability of the heel cup. Made of aluminum, it’s a really durable heel cup.
We have a plastic baseplate – Union has their lifetime warranty on all their
base plates so if you manage to break their base plate, I’ll be impressed, and
Union will help you out. Their buckles are durable. I’ve been using these
binding for the last three years and I only just recently replaced one of the
buckles from three years of hard riding. One feature that I really value about
the Union Force, it has really comfortable straps and puts really even pressure on
the toe and over your heel which gives you a really nice connection to your
board. Quick adjustability on the straps means that if you need to make some
adjustments while you’re out on the mountain you can do this with your hands,
you don’t need any tool to adjust these straps. This is a nice feature if you
find that the fit is not quite right and you’re at the top of the lift you can
make it fit perfectly so you still get to enjoy that ride down. This is one of
those bindings that I recommend for people who really enjoy riding steep
terrain but they still want to throw some tricks in the park and maybe hit
some of the features. If they don’t want to be limited just to mountain terrain or
freestyle this is great binding. Find the Union Force in our store online and here
in Sandy we also have them available in Portland. See you out there.
