kinda a problem
so you cant really hit jumps with these???
Great softer binding for park riding.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have owned a pair of Union Forces for years, but I decided to buy a pair of the Contacts for my park board. I have been very happy with these bindings so far. The flex is perfect for midwest park riding and the straps are even more comfortable than my old Force straps. It does take a while to get the toe cap dialed in right since it doesn't have a quick adjust. One warning to potential buyers, my size 9 ThirtyTwo Lashed boots just barely fit width-wise into the M/L size which makes me think anybody with a 10 in the same brand should probably get the L/XL.
Contacts are solid and bright
I bought the contacts and was immediately thrilled with the style and color. Beware that the orange is even brighter than on the picture.( Which I didnt mind) I rode these for about three weeks and the only thing that I noticed was that sometimes the toe strap would slide up over the top of my boot even tho I had it cinched down pretty well. That was my only complaint. Solid bindings though.
why the complaints?
toe strap fits perfect around the toe of my nike vapens, they're super light and still have no problem with them coming lose on either strap
Sick binders with a flaw
These bindings look sick,they're light as a feather, and have great support but a ton of tweakability too. One problem is, after a month of riding the toes strap ratchets stop holding the way they did when they were new. As I'm riding down the hill the toe straps will come loose. So if your cool with swapping out straps, these bindings are for you!
binding good, toe strap eehhhhh
the toe strap is really akward not going to lie the ratchet part always messes with my small toe and annoys it when strapped in like just wierd haha
The bindings are great, the flex is perfect for jibbing, sick colorways, and good quality. Can't ask for much more, can you?
I just got to try these out the other day and they are by far the best bindings i've ever owned. They flex great which makes them perfect for jibbing and are comfortable just cruisin in. Plus, the contact point on the bottom really helps for board feel and easier flex. Perfect binding.
Just picked up these binders a little over a week ago and instantly fell in love. First of all, they're super light which makes everything from jibbing rails to dangling your leg off the lift so much easier. Also the slits in the highback allow for really good twisting/sideways flex, but when you're leaning straight back into a heelside turn the highback stays super solid. The EVA padding under the bindings really do seem to add a lot of board feel underfoot as well. Overall, this is a really light and responsive binding -- 10/10 would ride again.
Contacts are Great
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After riding multiple Rome 390s since 2006, I wanted to try out something new. With all the buzz over Union the past few years, I gave a pair of Contacts a try. I have since converted. The Contacts are a great binding if you like a medium to softer flex, good cushion between your board/bindings, and incredible board feel. Compared to the 390s, I think the increased board feel was what I liked most about these.
Size wise, I have a 10 DC boot and the M/L was perfect.
Flex is good! Toe strap not so much..
Just got these a week ago and tried them out on my practice rail. The flex is superb and they feel awesome. The only complaint I have is the toe strap is pretty hard to release and I'm thinking it might eat up a couple pair of gloves this winter.
These bindings have the most flex out of all the Union bindings! They are pretty responsive, for how much flex they have. They make a great park binding, or even just a super fun all-mountain binding!

Hi, I got a pair of size 6 snowboard boots. Can I fit in this size S? I got a pair of burton women's boots
A size 6 in women's snowboard boots should work nicely with a size Small binding by Union.

Hey everyone! I've got size 11.5 Nike boots...
Hey everyone! I've got size 11.5 Nike boots and I was wondering which size would be best for me. I think it'd be safer to go with a L/XL? But I am not too sure. Anything helps! Thanks guys.
Hey Russell, L/XL will fit your 11.5 boots just fine. These bindings have a lot of adjustability in the straps so you can get a pretty solid fit for you boot.
Can these handle kickers too?
Can these handle kickers too?
If you're looking for a binding that's responsive and stiff enough to handle big kickers, I'd go with the Contact Pro's or the Force; little stiffer but just as comfortable and responsive as the Contacts.
Hello! Which bindings' size is compatible...
Which bindings' size is compatible to bootss size 11, 10,5?
Hey there! Size M/L fits up to size 11 and size L/XL is for size 11 or above. It depends on the types of boots you have, what boots do you own? Are they women's or men's boots?
I just found my bro's old skate banana and...
I just found my bro's old skate banana and want to make it into a dedicated jib deck, but I need some relatively cheap jib oriented bindings ($160 and under at dogfunk's current sale prices). So far I'm thinking these, flux rk30s, or burton cobrasharks. What should I get? I'm open to other suggestions too.
I really don't think you'd be disappointed with any of those 3 options. I personally have ridden the contacts a bunch and they are perfect for a jib set up - comfy and soft. I have friends that ride the RK30s and cobrasharks and they seem to feel the same way about them. The unions are probably the softest option with the flux close behind and then the cobrasharks. Hope this helps!
ok so i cannot decide between the forces...
ok so i cannot decide between the forces and the contacts. i ride park alooottt urban rails and big booters all day. so thats one deliema and i cant decide on size i have a size 11 boot and i cant decide between m/l or l/xl any help?
I have the large xl and ride a size ten boot. My boots even say they have the footprint of a typical size nine boot. These bindings have a lot of adjustment available and I run mine at the smallest settings possible and they are perfect with my size ten boot. I think you could fit in the ml but you'd probably have to adjust them way out to fit.
I have the m/l and wear size 11, I would definitely step up to the l/xl though, because the m/l is a pretty tight fit.
How weight? I suggest you to increase...
I suggest you to increase weight of the description of the goods, thank you!
They're SUPER light due to them being completely plastic except for the heel cup.
I've ordered these in size M/L, but now...
I've ordered these in size M/L, but now I'm afraid it might be too small for me. I have size 11 but I use 32 boots which I believe have a smaller outsole then other boots. What do you guys think?
Hey Eric, I think your boots will most likely fit. Once you get them, lace your boots up and see if your bindings adjust well to them. If they are too small, just give us a call and we'll get you taken care of!
yeah thats gonna be too small, i had size 10 32's and got m/l now im sending the bindings back because they pinch on the top... dont worry tho still getting the same bindings because they kick butt.
cant decide between these and the forces...
cant decide between these and the forces for a rail setup, what do you think?
if you are going to be riding rails i would go with these. They are softer and would give you way more feel and tweak than the force. The forces are a stiffer binding made more for all mountain riding.

I have a 10.5 size boot I'm 5'8 and 150lb what size would be good for me?
Either the M/L or L/XL will work just fine. If you have a bulkier boot, I'd go with the L/XL, but if not, I'd prob go with the M/L for a more snug and responsive fit.
Ive got 32 lashed boots would that work in a M/L
