PROGRESSIVE CONTACT

When developing the Ultra, Gigi had one goal: Uncompromised board flex and feel. To create a binding that had these characteristics required reducing the contact points on the base and integrating flexible, dampening EVA. By combining Vaporlite 2.0 with the Minidisk, we've lowered the direct binding to board contact to 5% and maintained the progressive flex Gigi loves.

 

Tech Highlights

VAPORLITE 2.0

Vaporlite 2.0 is the evolution of closed cell foam often featured on high-end running shoes. This water resistant, durable material maintains its superior dampening characteristics in cold temperatures, providing a cushioned and natural ride.

MINIDISK

Minimal Contact Footprint allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4x2 mounting pattern, as well as The Channel from Burton. With a mere 5% binding to board contact area, the MD Base enhances natural board flex, boosting performance and overall durability.

  • HEELCUP: EXTRUDED 3D ALUMINUM HEELCUPS

    The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response.

  • BUSHING: VAPORLITE 2.0 BUSHING SYSTEM

    Vaporlite 2.0 is the evolution of closed cell foam often featured on high-end running shoes. Super durable and damp to vibrations in all temps. Waterproof.

  • BUCKLES: MAGNESIUM 2.0 RATCHETS

    Four times stronger than aluminum with only half the weight, Union buckles are built to last. The new 2.0 design is ten percent lighter than previous versions.

Union Binding Size Chart
  • Our Take: Torstein has chosen his weapon and it’s built on a Vaporlight 2.0 base with Forged Carbon highbacks and the Exoframe/Air ankle straps are one of the best feeling binders on this beautiful round earth. This binding is best balance between, lightweight and stiffness. The Ultra can be ridden aggressively or mellow for a surfy feel. With only 5% plastic touching your board; you get 360 degrees of movement so you know the binding is going to react to every movement.
  • Rider Profile: All mountain Killer!! Go anywhere and dominate everywhere. For the rider who wants a super aggressive binding while beating friends to the bottom of any run in any condition and making it look easy. Don’t shy away from the kickers either with this bad boy.
  • Inside Scoop: Forged Carbon is designed by Lamborghini for the chases of their race cars. Enough said.
