Thanks to its soft flex and skate-style board feel, the Union Contact Snowboard Binding is Scott Stevens' favorite binding. Feel your presses and bluntslides lock in like never before, thanks to the Asym S2 highback and board flex-enhancing Stage V baseplate design. The Asym S2 highback is super-tweakable in all the right places so you can poke grabs and bone-out slides, but with extra lateral support towards the outside to provide more control when jumping and spinning. The baseplate makes minimal contact with your board so it flexes more naturally, netting you superior board feel and control. An extruded 3D aluminum heelcup reduces weight while maintaining strength and stiffness. EVA in the footbed absorbs vibrations for a smoother ride. The 3D Direct-Connect ankle strap provides a secure and responsive fit without creating painful pressure points, and the Ultra Grip toe strap is low-profile and cored-out to wrap around the front of your boot for a comfy and secure fit.
