The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

These are an excellent all around binding with a stiffer side of medium flex that allows for excellent energy transfer from the boots to the board. The straps are also well designed and really lock in the rider's boot so there isn't energy wasted with boots that slide around in the binding.

I personally ride with these bindings and often forget they are there when I am carving because they transfer everything I do with my boot directly into the board, making it super easy to get on edge.

Ideal for
  • Very light weight. Hardly notice the weight they add to a board.
  • Very comfortable with the toes and ankle straps forming well to boots.
  • Very responsive. The stiffness of the high-back makes for easy heel side turns while the straps make for a good connection between boot and board.
Not ideal for
  • Stiff ankle strap and high-back make some butter tricks more difficult then with a softer binding

The most trusted binding in snowboarding is back for its 18th season running. The Force is Union's go-to binding for anything and everything you can throw at it - cliffs, powder, side hits, double blacks. This all-mountain destroyer can handle it all.

The Union Force is the perfect binding for a rider who rider 20+ days a season and wants to be covered for all conditions and terrain. It is very common to see Union Forces in the park and the backcountry - a pairing that is quite rare. It speaks to the versatility of these bindings - which are unmatched. This... Read more

Great knowledge and immaculate vibes
5 /5
Spencer curated my first snowboard, boot, and binding set up. He took time to understand me, my skill level, and aesthetic and riding preferences before making any reccomendations. What struck me the most was that you can genuinely tell he wants to find the best for you! He welcomes your feedback and easily adapts your curations according to your concerns. On top of that, Spencer went above and beyond by crafting a video going through the items in my curation, their advantages, and drawbacks. He patiently answered all my questions, no matter how basic they seemed. By the end of our interaction, I felt more confident and knowledgable of my purchase. I can't recommend this guy enough. Now I'm geared up and ready!

Sean was a great guide for my first big snowboarding equipment purchase. Made me very comfortable with the amount of patience and knowledge he had in regard to what I was looking for and the questions I had. I definitely feel like I made a good choice with trusting him in this process. Hope to get him again for my next purchases.

Tyler was able to provide a multitude of great options for me to check out. Being someone of a large boot size it was hard finding any boots within a reasonable price range that fit size 13 and up. Tyler was able to provide me with the best options I had seen up to this point and I couldn't be happier with the purchase I made today.

been looking for some time and not heavily loyal to a single brand as many shops are to a few - dalton pulled up a good number of options and was he helpful in understanding what was what. did not imagine i'd be buying online today and planned on researching only, but this was the best process ive seen.

I would definitely use this again! Very quick responses from Brooklyn- cool information video too! I wasn’t sure about ordering skis online but the information and price was so good that I feel like my investment will be enjoyed on the mountain each year instead of renting and throwing money away… Bravo for Brooklyn and this neat platform!

Jamie was amazing!
5 /5
Jamie was extremely helpful in helping me get to a better understanding of what I needed and what I was getting. Honestly, I believe I probably would've been lost trying to do all of this on my own. He provided plenty of options for gear as well as providing an informative and personalized video on his board, boots, and binding recommendations. He was responsive and was quick to tailor his suggestions as I provided additional information. He made my first experience with Curated very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. Honestly blew my expectations of what Curated was and how the process is working with an expert like Jamie. I would highly recommend working with him.
