    Make first contact.

    Gigi Ruf wanted a binding that would complement his smooth, spontaneous style of riding, and Union delivered with the Contact Pro Snowboard Binding. It features ultra-lightweight construction and a medium flex to deliver total freedom and a surfy feel anywhere on the mountain. The bigger your binding's footprint, the more it affects the way your board flexes. That's why the Contact Pro remarkably only makes five percent contact with the board, allowing it to flex the way it was intended and giving you a more natural riding experience, whether you're cruising the park or picking your way through the trees.

    It also has the CP3 highback, which is extremely light and has an asymmetrical design to mimic your leg's natural shape for improved comfort. Vaporlite cushioning allows for natural canting to reduce fatigue, and it also absorbs vibrations and shock for a smoother ride. An extruded 3D aluminum heelcup reduces weight while maintaining strength and stiffness. The Sonicfuse ankle strap provides a secure and responsive fit without creating painful pressure points, and the Ultra Grip toe strap is low-profile and cored-out to wrap around the front of your boot for a comfy and secure fit.

    • Ultralight and versatile binding
    • Medium flex conquers the entire mountain
    • Rugged base is virtually indestructible
    • Vaporlite footbed dampens vibrations
    • Minimal footprint for true board flex
    • Sonicfuse straps provide seamless fit
    • Magnesium buckles are lighter and stronger
    • Item #UNN001X

    Loose Screws on Ankle Strap

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

    Great binding, but the ankle strap binding always comes loose. You can tighten it firmly but after a few runs off kickers and rails, you can literally unscrew the loose screw with your nail. Backcountry was wonderful in their support though.

    That next step

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Feel like your pretty good at snowboarding? Don't know what you need to take it to the next step? Then step into these babies! They aren't called the contact pros for nothing! No matter what kind of snowboard you ride, these will make your responsiveness insane! Along with reduced chatter because these bindings fit like a glove around your boots. Just remember to strap in and hold on. Cause you just stepped your game up.

    All mountain killer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love these bindings. You can adjust everything to make these fit proper to your liking and how can you complain about a lifetime warranty on the baseplate?! Highly suggest trying these or any of the Union bindings.

    The Binding You Have Been Looking For

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Best all around bindings out right now. One word describes it "Responsive". It is stiff but soft, send it deep and it will keep you up right but dip into some deep stuff and have enough board feel to surf your way out.

    Boom proof buckles and straps and minimal hardware holding it together so you don't need to worry about tightening screws so they don't back out on you.

    It's time to upgrade your bindings this year. Look no further than the Union Contact Pros.

    Pros: (no pun intended:))
    - Lifetime Warranty on baseplates
    - Reinforced Duraflex material in the base
    - Vaporlite Dampening across the binding for strength and light-weight design
    - 5% contact area: Meaning you take full advantage of the board's flex and natural feel
    - Magnesium buckle: Uber strong and durable in all weather conditions
    - Reinforced ankle and toe straps
    - Strongest hardware
    - Perfect medium-flex for all mountain shredding (peak - to - park)

    Cons:
    - Not the stiffest binding out there. If you are looking for a freeride or big mountain stiff binding look at the Atlas bindings.

    Hit me up if you'd like to get a pair for yourself or chat about completing the rest of your snowboard package for the 16-17 season.

    New & Improved - Contact Pros

    Contact Pro Surf the Earth

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Contact pro, a binding by Gigi Ruf, not only is one of the greats but also comes in at 720 grams in weight making this one of the lightest bindings on the market. So if your looking to hike a little farther for that better powder line and also have that amazing surfy feel this is the binding for you. The oversize vapor light bushing system not only gives you natural canting under foot and great torsional flex but also allows for only 5% of the binding to come into contact with the board so your board can have a more natural flex pattern. I have had knee surgery too and this oversize bushing system really help alleviate pressure from me knees. Coming it at $259.95 you can't get a better binding. It has all your bells and whistles and is ready to be put to the test.

    Contact Pros for those who know

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Contact Pros from Union are a great all around binding. Designed by Gigi Ruf, they are extremely light, have a medium flex for the whole mountain, and have natural canting and vibration dampening in the baseplate so your body is aligned and comfortable. The main feature (and awesome feature, might I add) is the Contact baseplate. It essentially hovers over your board and allows your board to have it's natural flex, where normally you would have a baseplate acting like a block of wood preventing your board from flexing underfoot. Union bindings are notorious for being ultra-lightweight, being able to mount on any board (4x2, 4x4, and Channel) thanks to it's mounting disks, and tougher than your grandpa's old-man strength.
