UNION FAL­COR $350

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN'S FREERIDE BINDINGS -

Built to with­stand ev­ery­day abuse from Travis Rice, this bind­ing is an un­usu­ally light, re­spon­sive, and durable op­tion for the rider who wants the best. By com­bin­ing ma­te­ri­als with mul­ti­ple den­si­ties, in­clud­ing a rigid, forged car­bon spine in a highback wrapped in softer ny­lon, the Fal­cor’s ver­ti­cal stiff­ness pro­vides im­mense edge-toedge re­sponse, while re­tain­ing a sur­pris­ingly play­ful lat­eral flex. Be­neath the base­plate is a mini-disk sys­tem that cre­ates min­i­mal con­tact be­tween bind­ing and board, al­low­ing un­in­hib­ited flex un­der your feet. Topped off with sim­ple yet ef­fec­tive straps and a canted footbed, you have a com­fort­able and un­re­stric­tive bind­ing that proved it­self a tester fa­vorite.

RAD: A feather-light bind­ing packed with all­ter­rain per­for­mance.

BAD: You’ll need a screw­driver to ad­just for­ward lean.
