Description

Become one with your board.

Scott Stevens, your favorite rider's favorite rider, rocks the Union Contact Binding for its soft flex and superior board feel. Feel your presses and tailslides lock in like never before, thanks to the new Asym S2 highback and board flex-enhancing baseplate design.

New this year to the Contact is the Asym S2 highback. It's still super-tweakable in all the right places so you can poke grabs and bone-out slides, but now with more lateral support towards the outside to provide more control when jumping and spinning. The Contact baseplate makes minimal contact with your board so it flexes more naturally, netting you superior board feel and control. An extruded 3D aluminum heelcup reduces weight while maintaining strength and stiffness.

EVA in the footbed absorbs vibrations for a smoother ride. The 3D Direct-Connect 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.

  • Contact baseplate with extruded aluminum heelcup

Unanswered Question

I have a Ride Machete with a flex of about 7, so yeah it's pretty stiff. I switched from a Burton Blunt with a flex of 3 and have used Burton Custom bindings (flex 4?) on both boards. Do you think the Contacts would be the wrong type of binding for that board. I only ride park and street, but the extra stiffness in the board helps landings on the big kickers and gives me way more pop. I really haven't notice all that much of a difference on rails with the stiffer board. Basically, are these bindings more geared towards noodle boards? Also, I like a Scott Stevens kind of riding style, so that is the main reason I'm looking into these. If there is a better Union binding for me, then what do you think I should look into?
Thanks,
Alex

i want to work on alot of buttering and ground tricks and spins and ollies and small jumps...im on a 154cm libtech skate banana with size 10.5 32 lashed boots...is the contact pro worth the extra money ...i want the flexiest quality binding possible...should i go with the contact or the contact pro for my noodle board ? ...i have burton cartels and rome katanas for my all mountain and powder boards....i read the contact has 19% contact and the pro only has 5% so wouldnt the pro have more flex or does it have a stiffer highback ?

The contact points for the binding to board foot print allows for more natural flex for the board. If you're working on getting your butters dialed in, having that extra flex on your skate banana would be the way to go! The Contact Pro features both a more responsive flex as well as a lighter, more comfortable high back that gives a bit more towards the flex and dampening than the full frame high back on the standard Contacts.

Yes but what I am wondering is if the COntact Pros will be too similar to the Burton Cartels and Rome Katanas ( these are a real chameleon binding and good for not having to change.)

I thought the contact pro would be stiffer as it was aimed at the all mountain style ,if the contact pro is just a better quality version of the contact then I would lean towards that but if it is more a mid stiff binding then I feel it would be no different than my cartels

Responded on

And also the style of Scott Stevens is what im trying to practice so if this is what he is using then I felt if the contact pros are better then he would be on them ,Gigis style is very diferent .

Responded on

The contact pros would be more along the lines of what Now Bindings are going for. It wouldn't be too similar to the Cartels though I can't speak for the Rome Bindings as I've never ridden those.

The more natural flex for the board offered by the pro is catered more towards Gigi's big mountain, freestyle. Just because the regular contacts have more contact to the board doesn't mean you won't be able to crank those butters around. The binding still has a less contact than the average binding.

legit bindings built to last

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've ridden many different bindings and brands. I have to say that by far Union's have been the most comfortable, and the most durable binding I have come across. The contacts are soft enough for park and jibbing, and still provide enough control for pow days and jumps. If you're questioning jumping ship from your current bindings as I was, you will not be disappointed with Unions quality.

Hi Mark

So is the contact pro a whole different kettle of fish ?
Im totally for trying to butter around and press and make it as easy as possible to learn to noodle around in the park.
Already got another 2 board setups for all mountain and powder.

Responded on

I wouldn't say that the Contact Pro is an entirely different binding, although it has different technology on the high back and base plate design. I've used both the Contact, and the Contact Pro- I like them both, but I feel that the Contact is a better jib specific binding while the Contact Pro is more suitable for "all mountain" styles.

The Contact has undergone some serious changes for this years binding, making it a more Jib friendly binding due to the Asym S2 high back being a little wider than previous models which gives it more response for pressing and tweaking the board around the park. Also, they've changed up the straps a bit this year which give you a little more leverage to move in the binding when pressing / buttering.

hi, i would like to know what size should i buy (m/l or l/xl), im 10 in street shoes (nike), and the other question is if this bindings goes with the Burton Blunt Snowboard. thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Hey, I'd go with the M/L so you get a nice, tight fit with your boots. And yes, these have universal compatibility so they should work with that board.

I wear size 11 boots, which size should I get? L/XL?

Responded on

yes l/xl. i wear a 10 and I have M/L. but I've have to loosen them out to the max. def get L/XL

Unanswered Question

Hey, I'm in the market for new bindings and boots.

I wear size 8(us) street shoes, but my boots can range from 7.5-8.5 depending on brand, so I'm just wondering if I should go for the S/M or the M/L.

Any help is appreciated, cheers.

I have a size 10.5 boot that i just got and I was wondering if i should go a size up to size l/lx or just go to medium

Responded on

Hey Joe D,

I would recommend going with the M/L size. You'll be able to crank down your straps much tighter than if you were to get the L/XL.

It feels like I'm skateboarding

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These contact bindings are the closest I can get to skateboarding on the snow with my feet strapped in. The over size bushing system really allows me to get into those presses super deep and really feels like a skateboard coming into a rail. Plus the new little wing on the lower outside of the high back really helps you get that power where your energy is starting which is creating less work. New light weight ankle strap is sick to and super comfortable. favorite park binding ever!

Best park and jib bindings out there!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got to try these bindings out over the summer at HCSC in Oregon. They're as good as they get for jibs and park. Soft and fun! I can see why Scott Stevens is soo good at boarding now...haha.
