To reflect the level of riding and force that Travis Rice is know 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 a ride that is forgiving where you need flex and responsive where you want connectivity.
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. Designed by Travis Rice
Stage 6 Base – Duraflex CB Nylon integrated with super cushioned Vaporlite 3.0 Bushings bring the next generation of Union to the forefront. Using "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.
Vaporlite 3.0 Bushing – The next generation of Union bushings, the all new 3.0 takes Union's 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 act like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides a seamless response.
Forged Hybrid Highbacks – By combining Forged Carbon and glass injected nylon, Union's 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.
Forged Hybrid Beam – The highback perimeters allow the flex needed to dial in your style, while the centralized forged carbon beam preserves lossless power into the board.
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.
Ultragrip Toe Strap – Multi-positional options and thermoplastic anti-slip material keep you locked in and on point - a simplistic, yet highly durable design.
Magnesium 2.0 Ratchets – Four times stronger than aluminum with only half the weight. The 2.0 version is new for 17/18 season and is ten times lighter than the previous Union Magnesium Ratchets.
Warranty Lifetime warranty on base plates and heelcups. 1 year warranty on other binding parts.
