Legendary ripper Kazu Kokubo relies on the Union Charger Snowboard Binding to deliver the response and support he needs whether he's boosting airs in the pipe or going huge in the backcountry. He rides the Charger because it delivers mind-blowing response in an insanely lightweight package, thanks to the carbon highback and CNC machined aluminum heelcup. Ride faster and more confidently knowing that you have total control over your board.

Carbon construction makes the highback insanely light, yet decidedly flex-free, so you'll get lightning-fast response out of your setup, even if you're running a super-stiff board. The heelcup is made with CNC machined aluminum to reduce weight while maintaining strength and stiffness, and the Stage IV Duraflex baseplate makes minimal contact with your board to eliminate the dead zones in the board's flex pattern caused by lesser bindings.

Multi-density EVA in the footbed allows for natural canting to reduce fatigue, and it also absorbs vibrations and shock for a smoother ride. The 3D Direct Connect ankle strap locks your foot down without creating pressure points, and the Open Toe Strap is low-profile and cored-out to wrap around the front of your boot for a comfy and secure fit.

snap crackle pop

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Put 45 days this season on the Union Chargers and I really enjoyed them while they lasted. My front highback snaped at the lower mounting/pivot point. I sent in for a warranty and Union did respond super quick, but their solution was to replace my carbon highbacks with the factory teams plastic highback. The reason they gave me was "they are the same but more durable and heavier".. I asked when the carbons were going to be back in stock and the Union rep said they discontinued the chargers for next year and carbon highbacks for the chargers will not be available and they will send me plastic to replace my carbons. So much for their slogan "Union Stronger" . Im try'n to get off the burton junk and was hoping union was the answer, but they are just as bad if not worse in my opinion.

TCB Bindings!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bindings are not for the faint of heart, super responsive, stiff and they take care of business like no other!! I've put these thru the wringer on Killington and they still come back for more. I love these bindings more than any other i have ever used. Union hit the jackpot with these.. If your a hard charger that needs a binding that make the decision before your finished thinking about it, then these are it.. gnarly bindings

Super Charger, Terrible Cheezzburgers

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am very impressed with this binding. It is simple and efficient. It is very light, comfortable and super responsive. In my book, one of the very best on the market!

On the other hand, there was a manufacturing defect on one of the upper ratchet that broke off easily. Quick fix you are thinking right? Wrong, has excused itself behind a 30 day limit return policy and stated that they simply cant help; "sorry".

I highly recommend this product, but also highly recommend purchasing elsewhere, where customers service is better then a cheeseburger from Mexico!

charger keeps charging

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Keep in mind Its different from last years charger binding. It has a different baseplate, which is stiffer but still runs the carbon highback and it has some comfy new straps. IMO the charger just got better, stiffer/more responsive, yet still comfortable and light.
