Union did a 100-percent redesign and retool of the Contact Pro. The new Contact Pro essentially takes Union's Truefit “minimal contact” philosophy to a higher level and allows snowboards to perform the way they were intended. Union worked with pro rider Gigi Rüf for a solid two years on this binding, and Union says this new platform will set the table for the future of its brand. Key features include: triple zone bushing system for excellent dampening and true board flex; CNC heelcups to reduce weight without compromising strength; light and comfy Contact Pro highbacks; and Contact baseplate which maximizes board flex and comfort.
