The Contact Pro is not new to the game and it is reknowned for being one of the lightest snowboard binding available on the market. Union gave it a CP3 highback, designed and tested by Gigi Rüf himself. It delivers comfort and support regardless of the terrain. Speaking about comfort, we have to admit Union did a pretty good job. They used the Vaporlite technology on their chassis to make it light as air with higher dampening properties. It also comes with a natural canting for a more natural position when strapped in. With the Contact Pro Glacier on your board, you know that your feet are going to be happy no matter the terrain you’re facing.
What can the Union Contact Pro Glacier snowboard binding do?
Designed like a freestyle all-mountain binding, the Contact Pro Glacier feels pretty flexy and offers a great lateral mobility to riders who like to tweak their grabs and lay deep board press. The binding feels truly comfortable and feels well connected with the board. Control is optimal which helps for slaying park features and stomping boxes and rails. The cushioning is excellent and landing a cork 7 off a black kicker feels soft and easy. The binding construction remains responsive thanks to a good medial stiffness and you can ride on piste or in the backcountry and rely on the support delivered by the Contact Pro. Truly versatile, with it on your feet you’re turning the entire resort into your own playground.
Who is the Union Contact Pro Glacier snowboard binding designed for?
We recommend it to snowboarders and more specifically to freestylers who look for an ultra light and comfy binding capable of withstanding impacts and shocks due to a park use. The hold it provides coupled with the comfort make it a fantastic park ripper and a great all-mountain explorer.
