Incredibly light, extremely comfortable, and outstanding for all types of snowboarders and all types of terrain, the Union Flite Pro Snowboard Binding utilizes the brute strength of blended Duraflex nylon for guaranteed durability and performance. The engineers at Union used space age components and eliminated any unnecessary material throughout the binding in order to reduce weight without sacrificing strength or performance. The Flite Pro highback is cored out to make it as light as possible while still ensuring that it provides the proper support and response for shredding anywhere on the mountain. Further weight savings can be credited to the lightweight Flite Duraflex baseplate, which has a medium flex for freestyle control. The extruded 3D aluminum heelcup reduces weight while maintaining strength and stiffness, and it never loses its shape no matter how much you abuse it. The stitched, 3D Direct Connect ankle strap provides a secure and responsive fit without creating painful pressure points, and the toe strap is low profile and cored out to wrap around the front of your boot for a comfy and secure fit. Plus, aluminum buckles shave even more weight while increasing strength.
