No, the MC Metafuse Snowboard Binding isn't the hottest new rapper on the block; it's Union's highest-end binding packed with space-age tech for unmatched performance. Born to pick apart hairy big mountain lines, slash effortlessly through powder, and fly down ass-puckeringly steep slopes, the MC Metafuse is incredibly lightweight and ultra-responsive to help you conquer the gnarliest terrain.

The all-carbon highback is insanely light, yet super stiff for responsiveness so your board obeys your every command. The heelcup is made with Dupont's Zytel ST nylon formula to make it ultalight without sacrificing stiffness or strength, and the Stage III Atlas baseplate makes minimal contact with your board to eliminate dead zones in the board's flex beneath your feet. Injected EVA bushings dampen vibrations for a smooth ride, and all-new 3D Direct-Connect straps eliminate unnecessary materials and cushioning to keep it as low-profile as possible to improve response and prevent painful pressure points.

Big Disappointment

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ok, these WERE my second pair of binding from Union and it's time for a divorce with this company. My first Union Force MC were great for 3 seasons and finally the highback cracked near strap . After that I had them replaced on MC METAFUSE and i was not impressed at all when i received them. I was using them 4 days and after that , on my first day during my holidays a heelcup cracked into half. I was reeeaaally disappointed, and probably when I get another Union bindings I will sell them and buy some other bindings. Probably split bindings becouse I got NS split. To sum up maybe this company makes good bindings but I have never find them.

light, but durability very questionable

    So it's been a month since I bought these. Mounted them to my board. They are really light- barely noticeable in weight when on the board. But, it has not been on snow yet and stored in my basement. A little bump on the heel cup here and there and the finish is chipping like it was made of cheap spray paint! Not sure about the durability here.

    The highback is stiff but with just a little flex to make it similar to the old Burton CO2 bindings. BUT- there's no padding and the highback looks like raw unfinished carbon fiber on the inside where the boot sits. Wow, not impressed.

    The straps are very comfortable and minimal, but feel and look like something from Walmart. Again, we'll see how it holds up over the season.

    Pros: ratchets lock tight and hold. Release really easily.

    No pressure points on ankle strap.

    Carbon covered in carbon with a side of carbon = REALLY LIGHT

    Cons: Nano coating chips if you give it a dirty look. Durability questionable.

    Toe ramp has to be removed to get to mounting disk. One more part and tiny screw to lose.

    Highback is shorter than other high end bindings (burton's) by about 3". Not as much leverage as I wanted for freeriding.

    Highback is soft side to side. Felt like a delayed reaction to make turns and butter.

    Highback requires an allen wrench to adjust lean adjuster. One more tool to carry around and lose in the snow.

    Likely a good freestyle/freeride binding. Not stiff and reactionary for me.

    So you actually rode them, or did you just stand in your living room strapped in? I think you go ahead and ride them before you question their durability. I have a pair mounted on my split board, and if you know anything about travel on a split board, is that it is brutal on bindings. I have broken high backs, toe ramps, and chassis' on Burtons, Rides, even my old school bullet proof Drakes. The only problem I have had with the bindings is one of the pads on on the toe ramp popped off, but a little glue fixed that. They are lightweight, comfortable, functional, and after over 30 days on them in the bc I would say durable. Overall I would recommend them to anyone who isn't going to stand in their living room giving them dirty looks.

    Houston we have a problem...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Challenger and Columbia were also loaded with "space-age tech"; expect the same outcome if you buy MC Metafuses.

    I highly recommend that anyone considering these bindings take a look at my reviews from the previous two season's MC Metafuses. They are great bindings in concept but very fragile. I have now broken 3 different sets (heel cup and highback).

    All this said, I do really like Union as a company and for the most part I believe they make innovative, high-quality products... I just wish they could get this one right.
