The new Union Force maintains the 20 year ethos that has propelled the Force to the top of the snowboard binding world, but integrates some of the new technologies and manufacturing that Union has developed and is showcased in the Ultra. That’s a lot of words to just say it keeps all the good things and adds more good things for an improved experience. The new Ultra binding was so well received that Union decided to add some of that new magic into their flagship classic. Overall what the new Force will offer is better dampening for a smoother ride, added suspension for smoother and more efficient edge-to-edge transfer of energy, and improved fit and comfort for your feet. Pick your favorite color and strap in for one heck of a ride!
