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 softer 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.

It also has the C Pro highback, which is extremely light and has an asymmetrical design to mimic your leg's natural shape for improved comfort. Multi-density EVA in the footbed 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.

  • C Pro highback
  • MD Base Duraflex ST
  • Vaporlite bushings
  • Extruded 3D Aluminum heelcup
  • Sonicfuse straps
  • Magnesium buckles

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Before these I was using the Union Forces. They were a pretty good binding a little on the heavy side but still good. Well after using those for 3 years I decided to try something new. These bindings are super comfortable and are great for all types of riding. Trust me you can't go wrong with these.

This binding is nuts! I bought a pair because I have been riding Union for years and when I saw all of the new ideas being implemented in this binding it piqued my curiosity and I couldn't help myself. The VaporLITE base tray is unbelievably comfortable and light weight, I would argue the lightest binding I have ever owned and I stay VERY current with my gear. I like to ride the whole mountain including some park and rails and this binding is surprisingly versatile. No matter what the conditions, no matter which board (so far I've ridden these on my Capita Indoor Survival and a Dino's Will Die) this binding is comfortable, high performance and just down right easy to use. Thanks for changing the game with this one UNION!


light, and feels like surfing

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Riding this binder on all conditions feels like surfing. Bringing snowboarding back to its roots


Super lightweight and durable

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I used these bindings after using the Union Force bindings for years.

They're super light weight, have a good flex and response for well rounded types of snowboarding, and hang in there throughout the wear and tear of a normal binding no problem at all. After using the Forces for quite some time, the contact pros are my new go to binding.
