The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

These bindings are great for any intermediate rider looking for something stiffer to develop their skills all the way through an expert rider who wants to have some comfort without sacrificing response. For an all-mountain rider or board, you get a stiffer-than-medium but not quite stiff-stiff binding that allows for all things you might encounter: side hits, ice, sluff, carving, and cruising. I've paired these up with a Salomon Huck Knife and spent most of the day in the park, only to put them on a Nitro Squash the next day and jet down some blacks doing some hard carving freeriding. The versatility makes these bindings a personal favorite.

Ideal for
  • All day riding in comfort
  • Shock absorption through chattery patches
  • Heel to toe and toe to heel transitions
Not ideal for
  • Raised toe pad feels awkward at first

20 years of superior performance, innovative design and technology, precision manufacturing, and unmatched quality. The next generation of Force has arrived. Designed, tested and trusted by the best snowboarders in the world.

Union's Force model has always been a popular and classic model, synonymous with Union itself. This new Force has been completely redesigned and released. The highback and ankle strap is made by layering five different materials. I've just tried it on, and while it holds firmly, it doesn't hurt or feel too tight. It gently envelops the entire foot.

Union has made some of the best bindings in the game for a few years now and I was first introduced to them with the Flite Pros. Now at the time, I was looking for a lightweight, less expensive binding to put on a freestyle board. They performed well, but I felt a lack of control in deeper powder... Read more
Ideal for
  • Great for intermediate riders getting into more aggressive riding
  • Upgraded toe cap design is better than entry level Union bindings
  • Lightweight material but strong and feel stiff and responsive
Not ideal for
  • Follow the sizing chart, if in between on size, size down not up

Broke on first use

Originally posted at unionbindingcompany.com on Jan 26, 2024
Hadn't even used them yet. Had just put them on my board and strapped in to see how they feel. As soon as I cranked the ratchet on the left side heel straps, it snapped off.

Really great for brand-new riders
5 /5
I'm a brand-new rider, only boarded twice. Always rented my gear. He took me from "never really looked into purchasing my own gear" to riding season-ready in a night. He was able to explain all his recommendations and made me feel good about using this service. Tailored everything to what I was looking for and really knows how to connect with newcomers to the sport. You can tell he's got a lot of experience boarding and I could tell he really enjoyed helping a new rider.

Kelly was prompt in responding, knowledgeable and guided me patiently keeping my skill level in mind. Even though I was ambitious and wanted a board beyond my skill level, she patiently explained why some other boards were better suited for what I was looking to get out of my riding
5 /5
Shopping online for snowboarding gear is daunting. The returns are not easy and you are worried you are not sizing the board properly or overlooking key features of the board. For a beginner like me, having a gear expert to talk to brought a lot of comfort and better trust in my choice of board. With the price match guarantee, you know you are getting the best deal online.

5 /5
Mike was great and very responsive. within minutes he was able to provide me with multiple options for boards, bindings and boots. He took time to learn about my skill level and what I am looking for. He asked for a budget and provided things under budget, in range and slightly over budget so I could see the differences between each item and value they add. He also was able to put together videos explaining each item and the pros and cons for each. On top of this I found a retailer selling one of the boot recommendations on sale and within 5 mins Mike was able to price match it in my size and I got them for $100 less than initially listed.

5 /5
He found a couple of boards that I really liked, ones I wouldn't have think of to look up. He took the time to tell me what each board was like and whether it would fit what I was looking for. We took a little more time to land on something that also had colors and designs that I wanted, because I am very picky and want to look stylizish. I'd say the effort was collaborative, because I was also actively searching on my own, but I liked that I was able to send him some of my findings, and he would tell me what he thought of those boards, then he would adjust my curations based on what I showed him. This was super helpful on my decision making, and eventually he suggested the Jones twin sister board to me and it's like, once you know, you know. Never purchased from curated before so I am a little nervous about shipping and quality control, and I also don't see reviews once orders were received, so hoping things all work out!

Taylor was very nice and helped out with money saving options, especially with me being new to the sport, that were helpful to figure out what I should get. She knows to appeal to who she’s helping as far as color ways for male or female while still giving a cheaper or more favorable option.

I've read good & bad reviews about the curated experts. Zach was not one of the bad! Very nice, very patient , very knowledgeable & we both have similar taste in equipment. I was having trouble making a decision on board & size, but after speaking with Zach it seemed like a no-brainer. Appreciate the support!
