The Curated Take

Leonid Cha, Snowboarding Expert
By the Expert Community

The Union STR binding is probably one of the best bindings for the buck. It's a medium flex binding, kind of that 6 out of 10 rating. You've got that Duraflex baseplate and highback with the flip-lock for quick adjustment of the forward lean. And there's a system underneath, so you get a little bit more natural flex out of your board. It smooths out your ride but still keeps it quick edge to edge. And then across your ankle, we've got Exoframe 2 strap, shaped just right, so you get all the comfort you need, but you still get a nice quick reaction when you're going from your heel side to toe side edge. Quick caution for some riders: the ankle strap is so tight it "could stop the blood flow, while heel lifts and the 'sensitive' base of the binding lifts as well from the board both at the front and back. But who is this binding for exactly? For those beginner to intermediate riders, someone looking for a good binding to help them progress and get better, or even for those beginners who maybe catch on to things a little bit quicker. This is a binding that's actually going to take you, performance-wise, a little bit further than your standard basic beginner binding. But don't let the price fool you; even some of those intermediate to advanced riders who don't have a lot of money are actually going to get a lot out of this binding.

Ideal for
  • Exoframe 2.0 strap enhances comfort and responsiveness
  • Duraflex baseplate provides good shock absorption
  • Ideal for progression from beginner to intermediate level
Not ideal for
  • Ankle strap may be overly tight for some riders
  • Potential heel lift issue

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!
