Rather than rethinking the binding, Union stripped weight and refined the ratchets, straps, high backs, and base plate to improve function and strength. Thanks to Union's quick-mounting mini disks, less than 5 percent of the base plate is in contact with the board, minimizing dead zones and allowing the board to flex naturally.
