100+ DAY PER SEASON WORKHORSE DEPENDABILITY
A brand within the brand, the Force delivers the durability and purity of performance demanded by 100-plus-day-a-year riders. An indestructible binding that can handle any condition or terrain with all the features you need and nothing you don't. Extreme all day comfort, season after season dependability, and backed by a lifetime warranty base - the Force is simply down for the duration.
Pioneering the concept of “True Flex” base design, Union was also the first binding on the market to incorporate bombproof Extruded Aluminum Heelcups, and Magnesium Buckles.
BANG FOR THE BUCK
Compared to other bindings in this price category, the Force stands alone. We have combined superb materials, features and function that merge into an overall value that is second to none.
BASEPLATE STIFFNESS = 6/10
HIGHBACK STIFFNESS - 7/10
HIGHBACK: FORCE HIGHBACKS
Duraflex Injected Multizone Force Highbacks are tapered towards the top, providing flex and tweakability where you want it, support and durability where you need it.
STRAPS: SYMMETRIC SONIC FUSED ANKLE STRAPS
Three dimensional Direct-Connect core evenly distributes strap pressure and allows lateral freedom. Minimized stitching provides exceptional durability.
BASEPLATE: STAGE 4 DURAFLEX DURAFLEX ST BASE
Blended to provide a smooth and responsive ride, Duraflex ST Nylon retains this intended performance in a broad range of temperatures.
HEELCUP: EXTRUDED 3D ALUMINUM HEELCUPS
The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response.
BUSHING: MULTI-DENSITY THERMOFORMED EVA BUSHINGS
Multi-Density Thermoformed Bushings sustain their function season after season - unlike competitors who use urethane, rubber or other materials that change color and become brittle over time.
BUCKLES: MAGNESIUM RATCHETS
This Union exclusive process produces a material 4 times the strength of aluminum with only 1/2 the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet.
