Description

The 2018 Union Ultra was developed with one thing in mind; uncompromised board flex and true board feel. Designed by Gigi Ruf and ridden by Torstein Horgmo, the Ultra is the pinnacle of all-mountain versatility and performance. Utilising Unions latest and most impressive tech, the Ultra is incredibly light and responsive while still maintaining a surfy and smooth ride, which is why Torstein chooses it for every aspect of snowboarding, whether it be street, park, or backcountry. The Ultra gets its surfy feel and cushioning from the Vaporlite 2.0 foam (an evolution of the foam found in high-end running shoes), and combined with the ultra-lightweight and responsive Forged Carbon highback, you've got a binding that preserves the true and natural flex of your board while still providing instant response. The Ultra lives up to its name, offering ultra performance and ultra good looks in an ultra lightweight binding.


Key Features

Flex: Baseplate - 5/10 // Highback - 8/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)

Board Compatibility: This binding comes with a mini-disk that is compatible with 2x4 inserts, and the Channel binding mounting systems.

Base Plates: Vaporlite 2.0

Vaporlite 2.0 is the evolution of closed-cell foam, and is commonly found in high-end running shoes because of its incredible durability and damping abilities in all temperatures. This is combined with the Union mini disk, reducing the board to binding contact to a minuscule 5%, which preserves the true flex of your board and boosts performance.

High Back: Forged Carbon

Forged Carbon is the lightest and strongest material on the market. It will deliver absolute performance and lighting fast response, along with being incredibly strong and lightweight.

Buckles: Magnesium 2.0 Ratchets

A construction process completely unique to Union allows them to make their ratchets out of Magnesium, resulting in a product that is 4 times stronger than aluminium while being half the weight. Not only that, it's easily recycled so the environment benefits too. The 2.0 version is lighter still, with a further 10% weight reduction over previous versions.

Straps: Exoframe/Air Ankle Strap + Ultragrip X Toe Strap

The 2018 model features the all new Exoframe/Air ankle strap, which is minimalistic in design but offers maximum performance and weight reduction, with strength and response on the outside and cushioned comfort on the inside.

The Ultragrip X is an improvement on the previous Ultragrip toe strap, reducing weight while maintaining structure and hold thanks to thermoplastic anti-slip material that has serious grip and durability.
