The Strength of Carbon Redefined
Forged Carving Machine.
What started as an industry-first in advanced material development has evolved to become a binding platform unlike any other on the market. With eight dedicated Forged Carbon components used through our the Union FC, this binding sets the bar for power-to-weight ratio.
- BASEPLATE STIFFNESS: 10/10 Stiff and Responsive
- HIGHBACK STIFFNESS: 9/10 Stiff and Responsive
- DISK TYPE: Minidisk - Mini Disk 4x2 and the Channel
- VAPORLITE 3.0 BUSHINGS
- FORGED CARBON
- MAGNESIUM 2.0 RATCHETS
- EXOFRAME/AIR ANKLE STRAPS
- FORGED FOUNDATION: New to the FC is a redesigned Forged Carbon base that combines the durability of Forged Carbon with an integrated Vaporlite bushing for flex where you need it and strength in high stress regions.
- JOINT DEVELOPMENT: What began as a material development partnership between the Lamborghini Advanced Studies Research Lab and Union Binding Company has evolved to bring Forged Carbon component production in-house at Union. This gives us complete control over our R&D to guarantee our materials interact perfectly.
- X-CARB MD BASE: This revolutionary composite contains a very high amount of pre-blend blended carbon, resulting in a super light and responsive ride. You will not find it anywhere else.
- FC VAPORLITE 3.0 BUSHING SYSTEM: Integrated Forged Carbon and Vaporlite 3.0 create an exceptionally responsive platform, cushioned with the highest quality closed cell foam available. A smooth riding CARVING MACHINE!!!
- FORGED CARBON HEELCUPS: The rigidity and strength of FC Heelcups act like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides a seamless response.
- FORGED CARBON HIGHBACKS: Minimal Contact Footprint allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4x2 mounting pattern, as well as The Channel from Burton. With a mere 5% binding to board contact area, the MD Base enhances natural board flex, boosting performance and overall durability.
- EXOFRAME/AIR ANKLE STRAPS: All new for 17/18, ExoFrame/Air produces strength and rapid response on the outside, fit and pillowed comfort on the inside.
- MAGNESIUM 2.0 RATCHETS: Four times stronger than aluminum with only half the weight, Union buckles are built to last. The new 2.0 design is ten percent lighter than previous versions.
