The Union Cadet binding is built for the youngest snowboarders who love freestyle riding and want a lightweight and durable binding with a very low price tag. The Cadet has almost been completely redesigned for 2022 with a fresh new baseplate, heel cup and upgraded toe strap.
The Union Cadet all-new Stage 8 Duraflex is the lightest baseplate, Union has ever created. The Stage 8 Duraflex gives the Cadet binding a new slick look that also takes 10 grams off the cadet's total weight, making it one of the lightest kids bindings on the market.
The Stage 8 Duraflex Baseplate is boosted with the Thermoformed EVA Bushings, a shock-absorbing layer in the heal section, where you need it the most. The Stage 8 Duraflex baseplate is backed with a lifetime warranty, so you can go as big as you like. This binding is designed to last way past the user outgrow it. Your kids could probably pass it on to their own kids in the future and mount it to a hoverboard.
The updated TS 4.0 toe straps provide a comfortable hold over any snowboard boot toe box with no pressure points. The lightweight Forma ankle strap is strong, and brings a fast response on the outside with a comfortable fit on the inside, making it ideal for freestyle riding.
The Cadet is your premium kids binding in a fresh new design that will take the young riders to the next level, using space-age technology. The Cadet binding is light, strong and extremely good value for money. The Cadet might be one of the best youth bindings on the market.
