    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

    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.

    Syke, we don't want that! They'll take our beer.

    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 (2x4 and Channel) thanks to it's mounting disks, and tougher than your grandpa's old-man strength.

    Installation can be tricky. Put one screw in WITHOUT the washer, install the other 3 WITH the washer, and then take the original one out and install like normal.
