It would be difficult to build a snowboard easier to ride than this one. It’s as if the board was turning automatically, reading your mind and steering where you want. Catchfree and super smooth, the 2017 Mechanic is all about progression, all about making snowboarding fun. The mix of rockers and flat camber makes turn initiations predictable and effortless and gives the board enough grip to inspire confidence and enough ‘looseness’ to feel good on powder. The board is versatile and shall be an excellent choice for those who want to progress on all terrains.

Shape

  • 100% Twintip

Insert

  • 4X2

Structure - Construction

  • Hot Rods - Glass Single barrel  :

    A single rod of fiberglass in a milled-out channel for more nose and tail pop.

  • TTT Core Matrix  :

    The integral wood core delivers this reactive and responsive feel that only woodfibers can provide.

  • Straight biax Laminate  :

    Arming the bulk of Rome's pure freestyle boards, this playful, forgiving laminate definitely leans towards the flex side of the Flex With Pop spectrum. Perfect for a life of jumping, pressing, buttering and generally having creative fun. Also targeted to Rome's easy-cruising boards.

Shape - Sidecuts

  • QuickRip Sidecut  :

    Advanced sidecut geometry giving a short playful feel at slower speeds and a longer fast and stable feel at higher speeds. The Mid-Board contact points end the running length at slow speeds and add grip at high speeds.

  • Shape True Twin

Rocker - Camber

  • FreePop Rocker  :

    A longer flat section than in the JibPop, with shorter zones of rocker in the nose and tail. With the flat section extending 5 cm outside the inserts, these boards have a park-to peak amount of pop and edge control. At the same time, the rocker in the nose and tail give float in pow, smooth style on rails, and stylish finesse off jumps.

Other

  • XTRD Base  :

    A high 1.45 abrasion resistance creates a base that is durable, simple, and easy-to-repair.

Snow Binding Union Flite Pro Black

The Flite Pro Black is the entry-level binding at Union. Entry-level but not low-end, this men snowboard binding was upgraded and carries some of the latest techs developped by Union. The toe strap for instance, also called Ultragrip strap, is made of thermoplastic. It adjusts to any boot shape and keeps it locked in no matter what happens. More hold means more precision and more control for a better snowboarding. 

What can the Union Flite Pro Black snowboard binding do? 

This snowboard binding shines by its versatility. It can deal with all terrains and hop on and off piste with the smoothest transitions ever. The Flite Pro Black has no favorite playground really. The light and comfortable CP1 highback delivers control and snappy energy transfers on groomed snow for an efficient carving but it’s also very supportive when it comes to riding on the ungroomed. The heelcup combined with the chassis deliver a solid and stable feel through the crud while the dampening system works like a dream and makes the most difficult terrains feel like silk.  It’s also a great help in the park where it absorbs shocks better, keeping your knees in shape longer. To prove that Union makes quality bindings, they provide a lifetime warranty on all their baseplates and heelcups. 

Who is the Union Flite Pro Black designed for? 

Here’s a snowboard binding perfectly suited for intermediate or advanced riders looking for a great binding at the best value. Cheap and yet featuring high quality materials, the Flite Pro is a fantastic all-rounder for every type of riders.
