While developing the Ultra, Gigi Rüf and the engineers at Union 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% while maintaining the progressive flex that Gigi loves.
NON-STICK EVA + VAPORLITE 2.0
New for 18/19 is the application of Non-Stick™ coating to our EVA dampening systems. Gone are the days of getting ice buildup on your footbeds and highbacks. Coated Vaporlite 2.0 is an extremely durable material that maintains dampening characteristics in cold temperatures and provides a cushioned and natural ride.
DURAFLEX CB - MD BASE
5% binding to board contact allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4x2 mounting pattern, as well as The Channel from Burton
NONSTICK + VAPORLITE 2.0
Non-Stick™ coating on to our Vaporlite 2.0 closed cell foam. This water resistant, durable material maintains its superior dampening characteristics in cold temperatures, providing a cushioned and natural ride.
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.
FORGED CARBON HIGHBACKS
Working in harmony with the surfy feel of the MD base, Forged Carbon provides the strength and rapid response, for nimble board control and connection.
FORMA ELITE ANKLE STRAP
Designed by Travis Rice, the Forma Elite Ankle Strap fits his riding style and minimal approach towards the perfect binding.
MAGNESIUM 3.0 RATCHETS
The evolution of our proven bombproof ratchet system, the Magnesium 3.0 is a lighter and more sleek upgrade.
