Forged Carbon

Light Weight Strength

Constant Progression

Exclusive to Union - Forged Carbon is the lightest / strongest material known to man, and delivers peak performing heelside response and board control.

Nothing else comes close.

Lighter and stronger than titanium, Forged Carbon allows us to create 3D binding components that are traditionally limited to plastic injection. Forged Carbon is the future of high-end, performance-based products.

Progress

Our forging process makes it possible to form complex shapes in a single piece, without any wasted material. Compared to traditional, laminated carbon, Forged Carbon fibers aren’t oriented in any particular direction, which produces a much stronger finished product that can take on great impact from any direction.

Carbon: Expanded

Developed at the LamboLab, and produced inhouse at Union HQ, we have incorporated Forged Carbon into even more of the collection. From the all new Integrated Forged Bushing System on the FC, to all new Forged Hybrid Highbacks on the Travis Rice, our top end bindings are as tech as it gets.

Ride a pair and be blown away.

Additional Bindings Featuring Forged Carbon:

Forged Carbon is a technology developed specifically for engineering complex three-dimensional geometries that need to resist stresses of variable type, direction, and magnitude.

When we started this project, I was shocked by the intensity of the loads to which professional riders like Travis and Gigi subject these bindings.

Forged technology provides the best solution in terms of weight, stiffness and strength.
