Union Strata 19/20

Regular price £240.00 Sale

When the incredible Strata snowboard binding first appeared on the Union range last year, it proved to be a real game-changer, setting new standards for how a snowboard binding should function and perform, whether you're riding park or gnarly pow lines.

Following the incredible success of their debut, the Union Strata snowboard bindings are back for the 2020 season and better than ever. Originally designed in collaboration with Union team rider and freestyle legend Torstein Horgmo, The 2020 Strata features brand new redesigned parts to further enhance its performance.

Stacked with custom parts, this binding is built around Union's Stage VI Duraflex ST baseplate, specifically designed for the Strata. This base is super strong, super light, tough as nails suitable for all-mountain shredding. These bindings also have a brand new Strata highback, which blends a modernistic approach to a classic, time proven shape, to offer riders a comfy highback with just the right amount of flex.

the Strata introduces Union's new “industry first” Fused Vaporlite Bushing System, that sets new standards for how a snowboard binding should function and perform. This system redefines board feel and dampening characteristics to offer you a smooth ride and some much needed protection from heavy landings. The heelcup is made from 3D Extruded Aluminium, which gives amazing strength to weight ratio and features the same lifetime warranty as the baseplate keeping you fully covered.

The Forma ankle straps provide great rider to board feel to create instant response. The construction of the straps are extremely durable and strong yet staying super comfortable with great fit. Plus the Magnesium buckles are 4 times stronger than aluminium without adding to the overall weight for super smooth and speedy entry and exit.

"The synergy I feel between my boots and board is next level. The reason is the Strata, and it is the best connection I've ever felt." - Torstein Horgmo

Thanks to the input of riders like Torstein, the 2020 Union Strata snowboard binding bring a whole new level to snowboard binding performance. This all terrain freestyle machine provides everything you need for the ultimate connection to the mountain.
