Typically, affordable bindings tend to be soft-flexing freestyle rigs. And that's fine, if you're looking to get loose on jibs. But if you're looking for a responsive freeride binding for full-throttle riding on technical terrain, then you're out of luck. Or, at least you were until the Union T 100 Snowboard Binding came along. The T 100 offers performance that's similar to that of the iconic Atlas binding, only at a price that leaves more money leftover for post-shred pizza.
Its mid-stiff baseplate offers a responsive feel for navigating steep terrain, and it's built ultra-tough to withstand the toughest abuse you can dish out. The TR16 highback offers support when you're dropping cliffs and making powerful heelside carves, and it has a dual-material construction that improves heelside control and power while still allowing lateral flexibility and comfort. The canted footbed aligns your legs in a more natural position for added power and less strain on your joints.
