Gigi Ruf approved.

Designed and endorsed by backcountry freestyle legend Gigi Ruf, the Union Contact Pro Snowboard Binding delivers a never-before-seen blend of board feel, response, and comfort. By utilizing three zones of cushy EVA-injected goodness, combined with a responsive carbon-infused baseplate, the Contact Pro charges hard through the sketchiest lines and lets your board flex naturally for improved control.

The all-new Contact Pro baseplate is articulated at the forefoot to allow it to flex with your board to allow better board feel and control, and the universal mini-disc reduces the binding's footprint for even more board flex. It also has a new Contact Pro highback this year with an asymmetrical design to mimic your leg's natural shape for improved comfort. An extruded 3D aluminum heelcup reduces weight while maintaining strength and stiffness. The 3D Direct-Connect ankle strap provides a secure and responsive fit without creating painful 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.

  • Contact Pro asymmetrical highback
  • Contact Pro baseplate
  • Extruded 3D aluminum heelcup
  • Multi-density EVA bushings
  • 3D Direct-Connect ankle strap
  • Open toe strap
  • Magnesium buckles
  • Universal mini-discs

I bought these as Union claimed them to be compatible with 4x4 board binding holes. Now that i've got them the minidisk doesnt seem to fit 4x4 at all. I would like help with this urgen please. Thank tou very much.

Hey Nico,

A lot of manufacturers are kinda adopting the new 2 cm x 4 cm as the standard 4x4 pattern. Even though its not actually 4 cm x 4 cm it is quickly becoming the industry standard and there are fewer and fewer boards out there that are using the old spacing.

Bottom line is that the mini disk does not fit on the older spacing and there isn't a way to make it work that I know of.

Nico,

I would definitely recommend a M/L Union Contact Pro Binding for your boot model and size.

I'm currently riding 2012 DC gizmo size 11 boots, would i go with m/l or l/xl? right now i have burton cartels large but i can't center my bindings on the board and the boots fit the medium cartels also.

Responded on

I feel like I am really starting to max out my Unions in size 10's. I would really suggest that you go with the L/XL

Best Bindings in the world!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Lightweight, responsive, but still have flex underfoot? These are your bindings. They make everything a great ride, with the adjustable heelcup you can really adjust these to your boot so you get the best ride possible. I cant think of another binding that compares for the same price. Get out to your local shop and buy a pair. Plus the highback looks like a BBS wheel, hella sick!

Completing my Union family

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding the Forces and Atlases for a number of years and wanted to try out what else Union had to offer in their line, since I've loved every other pair of bindings I've had from them and the Contact Pros don't disappoint. They are definitely a noticeably softer binding but they still have plenty of response to get you through chunkier. Extremely comfortable and have that bullet proof feel I've come to love Union for. Awesome bindings.

Responded on

Michael,

You are definitely right on the border. I would generally recommend the S/M in the Union Contact Pro, however I would also factor in the the brand and model of boot you are looking to pair these with. Some boot have a wider profile and may require the M/L.

Patrick,

Any chance you know off the top of your head the size boot you have?

Size 10.5 and above I'd go with the L/XL

Size 11 or smaller I'd go with the M/L

my boot size is 10.5 so should i go with the samller binding size or l/xl?

Responded on

Patrick,

My response was a little confusing,I gave the smallest boot size for the L / XL and the biggest possible for the M / L. My apologies on that.

I'd got with a M / L since you're rocking 10.5's. Especially because the snowboard industry is starting to realize they can make the boot shells smaller. So some new boots although 10.5's will fit into a binding like a 10.0.

Yes!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Best bindings I've ever had. Thought I knew bindings until I got these. Was torn between the Force's and these. I was unsure of the Contact Pro because of the low backs as I'm used to high backs. That went right out the door once I strapped in. It was almost like they weren't even on. Straps are awesome too. I ride park, powder, trees, and everything in between. Get them!

I have size 11 thirtytwo lashed boots. Would the M/L size be a better fit or should I go with the L/XL size bindings.

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Jeremy,

I don't ride the Lashed, but I am in a pair of Burton Ambush 10.5, which is a pretty wide boot, even with the low profile design. I just got a pair of M/L and they fit like a dream - with the heel cup in the middle position.

If you are a rider who wants a little more baseplate underfoot, then you may want to size up, but I like a smaller binding (for weight and responsiveness) and the M/L is perfect for me.

I can't see a size 11 boot being so much bigger than mine that it won't fit, but there is a degree of personal preference involved with matching boots and bindings.

Hope this helps

Responded on

Size 11 lashed fit perfectly in L/XL hen you adjust the heelcup to 0.

This guy now has just about every pair of Union bindings made, at least for men! You know as a company you're doing something right when you can spend 100+ days on a board for multiple seasons and these things stand up to the task. Great job Union!

Crazy Light & Uber Cumfy!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These Bindings are insanely cumfy & Light weight!! I us them mostly for my Pow set up to keep the weight down when Hiking But they are the perfect tool for any Job on the Hill!!! With only 5% of plastic in contact with your top sheet you get the Truest Flex out of your board!! I can't say enough good things about these bindings!! I have bad knee issues in my front leg & these bindings help me endure a long day of shredding!! I have a sz 9 32 Focus Boa & the M/l Fits me great.

Size M/L?..

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are really good bindings, everything seems quite rugged and can take a pounding! But I'm a size 9 boot and with the M/L size, cant manage to get my boots centered across the board, even with the heel bar on full extension, my boots still overhang the toe edge way more than the heel.

Im using Burton Hail Size 9 boots, i was expecting them to fit fine to be honest. Are there any replacement heel bars that extend to a greater length?

Why don't companies issue some form of sizing chart thats a rough guide to which size to buy? Would make everything a lot easier, im thinking maybe the large bindings would have fit my boots better..

These bindings are my go to all mountain binding. I also instruct on these. They are absolutely fanomenal. They have a nice amount of flex for fooling around in the park. The perfect amount of support for bombing any double black. Good on the knees. Adjust on the fly. No vibration. Killer warantee. There is no reason not to get these. Except I find the toe strap is a little awkward. Many people have no problem with them.
