The Strata is 100% new model to the Union lineup. Featuring the Stage 6 Direct Injected base, the Strata incorporates a "industry first" Fused Vaporlite Bushing System that sets new standards for how a snowboard binding should function and perform. Pipe, parks or powder, the all-new Strata is the next generation of product progression.
One of the lightest bindings ever produced, the Contact Pro focuses the strength of Duraflex ST in critical areas of the base for power, and Vaporlite dampening underfoot for cushioned comfort.
Patented minimal board-to-binding footprint crucially reduces interference with your board’s true flex and provides a more natural response and feel.

The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response.
This Union exclusive process produces a material 4 times the strength of aluminum with only 1/2 the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet.
Traditionally when we hear the word “Strata,” images of delectable breakfast casseroles come to mind. A medley of bread, eggs, and cheese layered and baked together to create a timeless comfort food that is loved by billions. Literally.
However, the time has now come to replace those mental images of savory breakfast dishes with something truly mental; the all-new 18/19 Strata binding. Just like its namesake, we’ve combined a medley of Bad-ass features into one Bad-ass binding.
The Strata is a completely new binding to Union’s line featuring a Fused Vaporlite baseplate that is more waterproof, durable, and precise than any other EVA material in the industry. It also sports the Forma Ankle Strap that has gotten an update for this season. This strap has a minimalist feel but has a level of comfort and performance that is second to none.
The Strata has taken the snowboard binding design to the next level and will blaze its own path into the future. You don’t have to take our word for it though, the Strata will make a believer out of you for itself. Strap in, we dare you.
