Incredible, light-weight all mountain bindings designed by Gigi Ruf!
The 2020 Union Contact Pro is Gigi Ruf's award winning binding, promoting true board flex for an incredible ride that can't be matched.
The Contact Pro has a super-light CP3 Duraflex baseplate to provide a medium flexing base perfect for all mountain fun in all conditions be it the park or an Alaskan pow line. The CP3 highbacks were developed by Gigi Ruf to create an incredibly light and super comfortable highback that rides unbelievable well in all terrains.
Union have upgraded the Bushing System to a Vaporlite full bottom that reduces the contact with the board down to just 5% and provides incredible dampening on heavy impacts. Slightly stiffer EVA padding has been placed on the outside of the binding to stop your foot rolling, while softer padding on the inside helps with presses and tweaks. All slightly lifted off the base to allow the board to flex freely giving a much better response, feel.
The 3D extruded aluminium heelcups are light and super strong. Both the heelcup and baseplate come with an amazing lifetime warranty if it breaks while you're riding! Union's Mini Flad forward lean adjustment allows you to mellow out your binding when getting to the top of the mountain and let rip when you get there.
Improved high strength magnesium buckles give an even smoother motion to the ratchets while the all-new Forma Ankle Straps make for a super comfy yet responsive ride all day long. The Contact Pro uses Union's universal Mini-Disks for mounting onto Burton ICS boards or standard 4 hole boards right out of the box.
With great binding to board feel for a surfy ride tailor made for all types of terrain the Contact Pro snowboard bindings are a great choice for all mountain, freestyle riding.
