To reflect the level of riding and force that Travis Rice is known for, the Falcor combines materials with multiple densities into both baseplates and highbacks to take full advantage of each material’s best attributes. The result is ride that is forgiving where you need flex and responsive where you want connectivity. Dialed performance leads to new levels of experience.
Duraflex CB Nylon, integrated with super cushioned Vaporlite 3.0 Bushings bring the next generation of Union to the forefront. We have developed a manufacturing process called “Microfused Injection”, which focuses the nylon injection entry point around the disk ring where strength is most crucial, resulting in the lightest/strongest base to date. By combining Forged Carbon and glass injected nylon, we’ve created a highback that allows flexibility for medial-lateral rotation while preserving a direct connection for edge to edge control. Power where you need it and the freedom to ride the way you want.
- Stage 6 Duraflex CB Base: Design, material and the construction process result in a strength to weight ratio never before achieved in a snowboard binding. Developed, used and abused by Travis Rice
- Vaporlite 3.0 Bushings: The next generation of Union bushings, the all new 3.0 takes out True Flex philosophy to the next level. Multi-Layered design provides a natural 3° canting and season long comfort
- Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcups: The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response
- Forged Hybrid Highbacks: Duraflex Nylon and Forged Carbon unite to create a ridiculously lightweight asymmetric highback that conquers everything in it''s path
- ExoFrame/Air Ankle Straps: All new for 17/18, ExoFrame/Air produces strength and rapid response on the outside, fit and pillowed comfort on the inside
- Magnesium 2.0 Ratchets: Four times stronger than aluminum with only 1/2 the weight, Union buckles are built to last. The new 2.0 design is 10% lighter than previous versions
- Forged Hybrid Beam: A new innovation in the Union line, the Falcor features a combination of forged carbon and glass injected nylon to create a flex profile that compliments Travis Rice''s aggressive riding style
