I've had a couple Gore jackets, but never one with a removable liner. I actually use the liner, it's super warm. I'm 6 foot 150lbs and wear a Large to allow for extra movement and layers. Stretch fabric is rad.
The Cadet XS is where it all starts. A two strap binding for the little ones. Aluminum ratchets and a 5 position heel loop will fit boot sizes 11-3. This is not a snowboard toy, it's a snowboard binding.
Union made an insane binding for the youth market. The Cadet Pro has all the same features as binding from their adult collection. The baseplate offers canting, adjustable aluminum heel loops, aluminum ratchets, comfy straps and a highback that fits on kids size boots. It comes in two sizes and to cover all the tweener riders out there between kids and adult sizes.
The Ultra is a whole new binding for 2019. The Ultra is built on the Falcor/Strata chasis. A carbon blended version makes for an extremely light and responsive binding. The fused Vapolite busing offers a damp ride. All new Forged Carbon High Backs that are twice as thick as years past will keep these from safe from chairlift breaks or rolling snowmobiles. High performance, all mountain freestyle at it's finest.
The Contact Pro is Union's softest bindings. My friends who ride a lot of park love them. Great board feel, lightweight and simple. For these reasons, I love the CP on my powder boards. The mini disk and super soft bushing allow my softer flexing powder boards to really get down. I like a surfy ride in the pow and the Contact Pro is perfect. The binding is also extremely light making my pow set ups easier to hike with.
Great binding for the fist time rider looking for a quality product. The Flite Pro is Light, comfortable and has great aluminum ratchets. Union develops it product line from the high end and trickle down products throughout the product line. The Flite Pro has the original high back that Gigi Ruff designed years ago on the Contact Pro model binding. Anyone who is just learning can trust this binding to be there as they progress thru different abilities and boards.
Now that the STR has been upgraded for 2019. An all new one piece high back, Exoframe ankle straps from the 2018 Atlas and an new forward lean adjuster make the STR lighter and more responsive. A true little brother to the Union Atlas binding.
