The Union STR binding is one of the best “value for money” all-mountain binding you can get today. With parts handed down from higher-end models, the STR binding is the little brother that get’s all the sweet stuff, and we are not talking about worn out “hand-me-downs”, the STR gives you top end quality at a very affordable price. For 2022, the STR has been gifted a new Exoframe 2.0 Ankle Strap, making the STR lighter with increased boot hold and comfort. The comfort levels just increased, thank you Union Bindings.
The STR binding is the perfect binding for the beginner to intermediate rider who wants a medium flexing all-mountain binding that can ride everywhere on the mountain.
The Exframe 2.0 ankle strap is lighter and stronger than the previous strap and provides a secure and locked-in ride feel. The ankle strap wraps around your snowboard boots and holds the boots securely in place with a comfortable and supportive hold. The toe box of the boots is held down securely with the TS 1.0 Hexgrip Toe straps. The webbing spread over the toe box of the boots and the thermoplastic anti-slip material holds your boots down and provide maximum energy transfer into your board. Strap yourself in with the Aluminum ratchets.
The Stage 5 Duraflex Baseplate features a 3 degree canting that gives you extra ollie power and aligns your ankles, knees and your hips, so you can ride for longer with less fatigue. The bottom of the baseplate is padded with EXT Thermoformed EVA in strategic places, to provide shock-absorption and protects your heels from impact. The Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcup is designed for optimum heel hold and minimisation of drag. Both the Heelcup and the Baseplate come with a lifetime warranty.
The STR2 Duraflex Highback compliments the STR baseplate well and offers a perfect blend of flex and response for riding the entire mountain. The STR binding has everything you need to progress to the next riding level.
