CONNECTION RECONSIDERED

What started as an industry-first in advanced material development has evolved to become a binding platform unlike any other on the market. With eight dedicated Forged Carbon components used through our the Union FC, this binding sets the bar for power-to-weight ratio.

 

Tech Highlights

FORGED FOUNDATION

New to the FC is a redesigned Forged Carbon base that combines the durability of Forged Carbon with an integrated Vaporlite bushing for flex where you need it and strength in high stress regions.

JOINT DEVELOPMENT

What began as a material development partnership between the Lamborghini Advanced Studies Research Lab and Union Binding Company has evolved to bring Forged Carbon component production in-house at Union. This gives us complete control over our R&D to guarantee our materials interact perfectly.

Tech Features

  • HIGHBACK: FORGED FC HIGHBACKS

    Forged Carbon exceeds the strength requirements of injected plastic tenfold. Lighter is only better when it is stronger. Forged Carbon is as light and strong as it gets.

  • STRAPS: EXOFRAME/AIR ANKLE STRAPS

    All new for 17/18, ExoFrame/Air produces strength and rapid response on the outside, fit and pillowed comfort on the inside.

  • BASEPLATE: X-CARB BASE

    This revolutionary composite contains a very high amount of pre-blended blended carbon, resulting in a super light and responsive ride. You won’t find it anywhere else.

  • HEELCUP: FORGED CARBON HEELCUPS

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

  • BUSHING: VAPORLITE 3.0 BUSHING SYSTEM

    Integrated Forged Carbon and Vaporlite 3.0 create an exceptionally responsive platform, cushioned with the highest quality closed cell foam available. A smooth riding CARVING MACHINE!!!

  • 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

  • Just when you thought our bindings couldn’t get any lighter or stiffer, we went and did something like this.  We paired up with Lamborghini to develop a material that can only be found on Union bindings (well, with the exception of Lamborghini super cars, Boeing jets and maybe, just maybe, the lightest and strongest golf clubs on the market…) Forged Carbon has the highest strength to weight ratio of any material to hit snowboard bindings since, well, ever.  Weighing in at just over 1000 g per PAIR the Ultra FC is completely engineered out of Forged Carbon to create the stiffest, most responsive binding that money can buy.  If you’re looking for the lightest, stiffest, strongest binder available than your search is over, welcome to the UNION Ultra FC.
  • Rider Profile: Boarder X savage, 22 feet out of a 22 foot or every day in the Backcountry, the FC is designed specifically for the rider who needs a ton of support and even more responsiveness. Not for the relaxed, resort riding rad dad or the jibbing park rat.  The Ultra FC is designed for lateral strength but can experience too much stress when put under the torsional stress of park riders hitting jumps and impacting on rails. 
  • Inside Scoop: Lamborghini originally developed Forged Carbon with one goal in mind: “to give major impetus to technological innovation in composite materials and raise them to a level that had never been reached until now.” That’s exactly what the mad scientists at UNION were thinking. We teamed up with Lamborghini and are now 1 of 5 companies in the WORLD utilizing Forged Carbon in our products.    
  • CAUTION: The power in this binding is found when in “ride mode” i.e. rider is strapped into the binding and the highback is weight bearing. Do NOT “twist” the highback with your hands to test its stiffness.  Without bearing weight the FC can break when torsional stress is applied.
