The Curated Take

Maurice Hall, Snowboarding Expert
By the Expert Community

The Union Explorer splitboard bindings are great for exploring the backcountry. They're light and easy to use, perfect for long trips and tough climbs. You can quickly adjust them for different types of terrain, which is handy on steep hills. They're strong, too, so they won't break easily when you're out in rough terrain. But they might not be the best for really fast or aggressive riding because they don't have all the fancy features of regular bindings. Even though they're good for going up hills, they might not feel as good coming back down. If you want bindings that are light, easy to use, and good for exploring parts of the mountain that aren't easy to reach, these could be a good choice for you.

Great entry level split bindings!

Originally posted at eu.unionbindingcompany.com on Aug 8, 2023
Super affordable for me since I am pretty new to splitboarding. I spent a good chunk of my budget on avy gear so I decided to give these a try for the price. They ride really well! I had a pair of Contact Pro on my solid board and I would say they are pretty similar to those. Some of my friends were bashing the pin set up but I do not mind it at all. I’ve had no issues with it and to be honest I have used the pin itself to break loose ice build up on my split board clips. I will probably upgrade to the Charger in a few seasons.

Pin to win

Originally posted at eu.unionbindingcompany.com on Aug 4, 2023
Every binding out there seems to be over $500 and then you have to purchase hardware separately?! What is up with that… Then I found the Explorers which include everything you need in one transaction for less. The choice was obvious based on the price, and I love the way they ride! The pin system on these is nice, i don’t get the hype behind that pinless stuff. I like to use the pin to get snow and ice out of the nook & crannies of my board when I transition.

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!
