Description

The Union x Funky Custom House binding is a collaboration with Funky, the original Italian snowboard brand. Starting out in 1982 and being reborn in 2016, Funky is a snowboarding icon known for its skilled team, eye-catching graphics, and fun-loving personality. Union and Funky came together and spilled sweat, tears, and pasta sauce to bring you this bright, in your face, high-performance snowboard binding, using the framework of the ever-popular Union Force. https://www.melbournesnowboard.com.au/collections/union

The 2020 Union Force snowboard binding is one of Unions, and the worlds, most popular bindings, renowned for all mountain performance, top notch quality, and reliable consistency. It's the one you'll see almost every Union team rider riding, the one you'll see lapping the park, carving the groomers, or slashing powder, and doing it all with style. Year after year the Force delivers supreme all-terrain performance and comfort, it's consistently one of the best looking bindings we stock here at MSC, and subsequently, one of the bindings we sell out of first. At this price you won't find much else that delivers unbeatable style, pristine comfort, and bomb-proof durability that's designed to ride 100+ days per season. The Force isn't just a fashion piece, it's a future-proof binding full of tech features, boasting season after season dependability. For the 2020 season the Force receives canting in the footbed for a more natural and powerful feeling underfoot, as well as a redesigned FLAD and secure-lock toe straps for reliability.


Key Features

Binding Type: All Mountain

Flex (1 - Soft / 10 - Stiff):

Highback: 6 / 10

Baseplate: 7 / 10

Straps: 5 / 10

Board Compatibility: This Union binding comes with the universal baseplate, compatible with 2x4, 4x4, and Channel binding mounting systems.

Baseplate: Stage 4 Duraflex ST Baseplate

The Duraflex blended nylon in this baseplate is designed specifically for the cold, and maintains its strength and intended performance across a broad range of temperatures. The design of the baseplate aims to maintain the true flex of your snowboard, while still dampening chatter and keeping its strength.

High Back: Team Duraflex ST

The Duraflex injected multizone highbacks found on the Union Custom House binding are supportive, durable, and feature a tapered shape towards the top, promoting flex and tweakability for huge stylish presses and grabs.

Buckles: Magnesium 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.

Straps: Classic Pro Ankle Straps + Hexgrip Toe Straps w/ Secure-Lock

The Classic Pro Ankle Strap is designed specifically for the Force, featuring a wider, more traditional design to complement the performance of a snowboarding icon. The Hex Grip Secure-Lock toe straps provide multi-positional options, are made out of a thermoplastic anti-slip material to provide grip in all conditions, and feature the secure-lock pin system which reinforces connection strength.

Cushioning: Multi-Density Thermoformed EVA Bushings

These bushings maintain their performance season after season. Where other materials would deteriorate over time, Unions bushings stay consistently strong even after seasons of use. The EVA removes pressure points on all four corners of the baseplate and dampens your ride, absorbing chatter and hard landings, and dual density EVA under the heels and toes plus a full EVA foot bed with adjustable toe ramp gives awesome boot to binding to board response.

Additional Features:

Extruded 3D Aluminium Heelcups:

This heelcup increased the stiffness of the binding, increases response, and is adjustable to help you dial in the perfect fit.

Classic Forward Lean Adjuster:

No tools needed for this one, just flick the tab down and slide the panel for more response or a looser feeling ride on the fly.

Grade 8.8 Hardware:

Union ensure their hardware is reliable by using the strongest steel available on the market.

Tool-less strap adjust:

Whether you're letting a friend borrow your bindings or you just need to fine tune your fit, you can adjust your straps on the fly without the need for tools.

Canting:

The footbed of this binding is angled to better align your joints and provide a more natural feeling, less fatiguing ride.
