Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings – Men’s: Designed and endorsed by Union Pro Rider Gigi RAoef, the Contact Pro has become a staple within the Union collection with team riders and retailers alike. With a nominal binding-to-board contact footprint and softer flex overall, it is the perfect tool for riders looking for total freedom and a surfy board feel. FEATURED TECHNOLOGY: CP3 DURAFLEX ST BASE: Duraflex ST blended nylon is utilized on the Contact Pro to provide a medium flexing base that is softer than the Ultra and stiffer than the Contact. A great choice for all types of snowboarding. INTEGRATED VAPORLITE BUSHINGS: Vaporlite Full Bottom Bushing system is a closed cell foam that allows for natural canting and next level vibration dampening and season long foot comfort. 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. CP3 HIGHBACKS: Developed and tested by Gigi RAoef, CP3 Highbacks are incredibly light, extremely comfortable, and outstanding in all types of snowboarding terrain. 3D ASYMMETRIC SONIC FUSED ANKLE STRAPS: Three dimensional Direct-Connect core evenly distributes strap pressure and allows lateral freedom. Minimized stitching provides exceptional durability. MAGNESIUM RATCHETS: This Union exclusive process produces a material 4 times the strength of aluminum with only 1/2 the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet. CONTACT PRO BASE: A Union specific innovation that has become a staple in our binding line, the Contact Pro base combines our Minidisk technology with Vaporlite bushings for minimal contact, true board flex, and maximum board feel.
