Key Features of the Union Force Snowboard Bindings:
Great bindings with super awesome quality! perfect amount of stiffness, yet still flexible enough to tweak those sick tricks! the buckles are awesome quality, and the whole binding itself is super easy to adjust! Highly recommend these to any rider who wants to shred the whole mountain! Cheers!
I ordered the Force bindings because they were on sale from the season before. They are not the highest-end bindings from Union and when you hold them/play with them they feel kinda cheap. The high-back is quite flexible and there is more plastic parts than I expected. That last line sounded kinda like a negative, but it wasn't really intended to be. Other than the physical feeling of being on the lower-end of the Union line, they have held up great for me, and have given me no problems after one season of use.
Only thing I would recommend to people who buy them is to give all the screws a once-over with a screw driver before each use because most of the parts have a tendency to loosen throughout the course of a day.
All I can say is union continues to produce top of the line. I bought some switchbacks and hated them since day 2. Picked up these unions and they are just flexible enough for park laps, and the right amount of stiffness in the deep powder. They don't come undone, not do the bucked freeze up. Awesome year.

First thing first, "THE PRICE IS RIGHT". Seriously though, after riding these bindings in the park they put my Malavita's to shame. Not to mention the feel and response seems unmatched for the money's. Can't wait to break them in!
I liked the binding but am shipping back the m/lg one and buying the lg/xl. My solomon boots would not fit in the smaller binding even though they are size 10. I am hoping the new binding fits both my boots and board
I read Matt G answer a similar question. I have 32 groomer ft boots size 10.5. I read 32 boots are bulky and I have a little trouble with my burton bindings size medium. Would a medium force work with these and be better for future boots I may buy. Matt also said to size up in 32s so I assume id be a 9.5/10 in smaller profile brands?

Best Answer:32 Boots do tend to run a 1/2 size small - I've always sized up.
Let me know what boots you are going to ride this season and I'll see if they fit better into a size s/m or l/xl Force.
I need to get some new ones as well. I'm a size 10.5, slightly wide foot. Only go snowboarding 1 x per year and generally like to go all over mountain with only small jumps. I will be getting a new GNU carbon credit in May when released as last years was faulty. I live in Oz, but have friends in Hawaii that will bring the boots/bindings back at Xmas time. What would you reccomend?
Good choice on the Gnu Carbon Credit, it's an awesome board! Below are a few boots that would work great for all mountain riding at a low cost that would fit into a M/L size Union Force Snowboard Binding :
No you don't. Union offers a disk that can be used to mount their bindings to Burton's boards featuring "The Channel." This is something you have to purchase separately, however, if I'm not mistaken. I looked for them on The House, but don't see them. You can get them from most retailers for less than $10.
I love Union bindings. I just broke the strap on my DLX's which I bought and used as a beginner. Now I'd say I'm an intermediate rider. I do mostly mountain riding, love carving and sharp turns, and once in a while hit some moguls, but occasionally I hit the park for a few jumps and boxes/rails. Would these be suitable for me? If not, any recommendations? Current setup is the 2012 Forum Youngblood (chillydog) and Burton Moto Boots.
Hi ....ive got 32 lashed chris bradshaw boots in size 10.5 and a libtech skate banana 156cm
Do i get the m/l or the l/xl as i worry that with sum ice build up or snow pow that i will be spending alot of time scraping ice out because of tight fit but then the l/xl will have more toe overhang so which is the lesser of two evils ? i did try my boots in a m/l at a local store and thought they were pretty borderline tight

Best Answer:I have the Jp Walker pro model boots in 10.5 with the M/LG Force bindings and they worked perfectly with just a little readjustment of the straps, footbed, and heel cup...helps to have a naturally wider board like your SD too, I'm rocking the Rome Shank 149...so you should be good to go, specially after everything breaks in some.
From the research that I have done, they should be. They should be more stiff than Union Flites for more of an immediate response when turning/stopping, but yet flexible enough for good park riding. I actually haven't even had a chance to touch them let alone ride them yet because I'm out of the country so unfortunately they are just waiting for me, begging to ridden. Sorry I can't provide a better response. Best of luck on your search though!
I purchased the bindings under the assumption that they are for all-mountain riding (I haven't ridden with them yet). They do have some flex in them and a lot of cushion that would allow for descent park riding, but if you want bindings specifically for park, these are not made for that.
Best Answer:Go with the L/XL 10.5 is to big for M/L with how wide the 86 boot is. I wear a 9 in the 86 and have the M/L and there pretty snug so i would go with a bigger binding. Solid boot and bindings thou.
Best Answer:The Union Force has standard mounting patterns and will not work with est as is. Union does in fact make base plates that will work with est. The Union Force bindings are a well rounded binding.
Will the union force bindings work with the burton clash snowboard?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2014
Best Answer:No they would not. The union force has a 4x4 or 3d pattern . The Clash has a channel system. You need to search for an EST system binding. Or see if Union has the Channel compatible mounting.
Setup will be a DC Focus 153 and Mens DC Rogan boot size 10.5 or 11, would M/L or L/XL be better? I only know the width of the board is 25cm. Also if anyone can comment on how those boots run....big/small or true to size
comparing the Union Force model and the Compact model what are the difference between both? I'm looking for a all-mountain binding which give me the chance to go anywhere so, is the force model the one to choose? Any other all-mountain versatile binding?
Best Answer:Nicole, I apologize if this info your already know, but Men's boots differ more than just size (ex: taller highback and wider heel cup). I would first recommend you look at Women's L bindings. If the bindings you like best are a Men's binding then yea, Union at least suggests you would be most comfortable in a Men's M/L.
