Four Union 2019 Product Reviews from the STOMP Summit

Union is 100% devoted to making the best bindings on the planet–they eat, live, and breathe it. Every part of the process is done in-house with zero outsourcing, making Union the only major binding brand in the world producing its own gear.

With the Strata, Atlas, Flite Pro, and Trilogy bindings as submissions at our inaugural STOMP Summit in Aspen, Union demonstrated their commitment to crafting the highest quality bindings possible.


Strata

MSRP: £279.95
Sizes: S, M, L
Colors: Hyperblue, Black, Red, Silver

A completely new design in the Union lineup, the Strata introduces a completely unique bushing that redefines how a binding can be constructed. The result of a unique injection molding process, the baseplates soak up chatter in a way that needs to be experienced to be fully realized. This same tech provides unparalleled boardfeel.

Testers were impressed time and again by the Strata’s do-it-all prowess, confidently confirming its touted capabilities in both freeride and freestyle scenarios. If the Force is Union’s team captain, the Strata is Rookie of the Year.


Atlas

MSRP: £309.95
Sizes: S, M, L
Colors: Matte Green, Matte Gray, Matte Black

The binding of choice for numerous Union team riders, the Italian made Atlas has become a flagship model in the line.

Featuring multiple upgrades this season, including new highly comfortable and durable ankle straps, this binding continues to assert, and improve upon, its all-terrain dominance. From the responsive baseplate and uniquely designed asymmetrical highback, to its joint-aligning canted footbeds, the Atlas proves yet again to be the perfect combination of drive and flex in a high-performance package.


Flite Pro

MSRP: £149.95
Sizes: S, M, L
Colors: Orange, Black/Yellow, Black, White

While there’s no such thing as a low-end binding from Union, the Flite Pro does happen to come at an entry-level price.

Holding the title of “lightest binding in its price category,” the Flite Pro, with its Italian construction and design, is packed full of features expected from a binding with double the price tag. From its nylon baseplate to extruded aluminum heelcups and sleek toe straps, the Flite Pros are an affordable option for any rider, backed with the confidence of a baseplate with a lifetime warranty.


Trilogy

MSRP: £249.95
Sizes: S, M, L
Colors: Green, Black, White

Among the most widely ridden women’s bindings in the industry, the Trilogy is a classic that’s only gotten better with age.

Featuring a new female-specific baseplate equivalent to that of the iconic Force binding, the Trilogy now boasts unparalleled durability and performance that was capable of handling any terrain–from steep lines in the sidecountry to tweaked grabs in the park. If you want one binding to do it all, and do it for seasons, here you go.
