This item is currently out of stock. (0)


Sierra Says: If nudist could be a binding, they would be the Contact. Union makes this binding with the bare essentials. Only 19% contact with the board, simple straps, lightweight base, this binding offers only what you need for the most realistic board feel and smooth ride. If you are looking for a binding that is easy to ride and comfortable, take heavy consideration to the Contact. That means you old guys, park rats, newbie’s and anyone in-between.

"ehh, they do the job..." 8/29/2010
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Contact
  • Pros:  extremely light,
  • Cons:  feel weird underfoot,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   when i first rode the contacts a few seasons ago, i thought they were pretty sweet. but going back to contacts after riding data's, forces, and bindings from other companies, i was underwhelmed. the way the bindings are set up, only the front half of the binding has plastic making contact with the board, while the heelside is all EVA foam. to me, i can feel my heel sink into the foam, causing a strange, unbalanced sensation between toeside and heelside turns. while not turning however, these bindings are the easiest i have ever ridden to lock into a press. it almost feels like there is no resistance at all. i would reccomend these for strictly urban riding since they feel like crud when you turn.

"Simple, flexible, and lightweight" 1/22/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Contact
  • Pros:  Simple, Flexible, Lightweigt
  • Cons:  Not very customizeable,

Experience:   This is a great binding for anyone who wants a binding you can put on your board and be done with it. I ride +/-15 degrees, and I rotated the high backs on these bindings, and that's all I need to do. I would not recommend this binding to someone who wants to be able to tweak and adjust their binding a bunch. These bindings really work well with the reverse cambered board, such as the Rome Artifact Rocker. They make a big difference in the way they allow the board to flex, so buttering and presses are easier. When I first used these bindings, I found a pressure point on the pinky toe side of my boot. This was because the toe strap setup was slightly uneven, and the magnesium buckle was pushing into my boot. So I adjusted the toe strap to be a little longer, and these bindings are very comfortable. Union contact bindings are a good price, feel natural on a reverse rocker board, don't cost too much, and are super simple to setup and use.

"CONTACT!" 10/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Contact
  • Pros:  FORGIVING, LIGHT WEIGHT, CUSHION
  • Cons:  TOO FORGIVING,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   ALRIGHT! i m a big fan of UNION bindings, the first i owned were the forces and i switched to the contacts. You definitely do feel a difference by switching. Forces are stiffer where the contacts allow you to twist and turn your feet. I like this binding because it was very light weight and i spend many hours on the mountain jibbin buttering jumping off features off and on the park. Both forces and contacts are great but contacts were easier on my knees and didnt tire me out so much because it was lighter. It is definitely a very forgiving binding but for anyone who can carve shouldnt have any problem coping with its flaws in certain areas. Priotirize what is more important in what you are looking for.These bindings are sweet. I have A verysoft board and forgiving binding, i like that setup, its very light and easy to jib, you defintely have to put more effort in certain areas while riding but after a while it all becomes 2nd nature.

"softy" 8/26/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Contact
  • Pros:  soft, flexy baseplate, light, adjustments, comfy,
  • Cons:  can be too soft at times,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   these are my first soft bindings. i love how it flexes with my board, eliminating the dead zone between the bindings and the area of the board under the bindings. provides more of a natural feel for the board's flex. its very light and comfy. works great with my vans and burton boots. lots of adjustments to suit all types of boots. the highback is also soft... can be too soft at times when i feel like i need it to be more aggressive. but is def. fine for all day all-mtn riding.

"BEST PARK BINDINGS!!!" 3/26/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Contact
  • Pros:  Soft flexing binding!, Great for tweaks and presses!, EXTREMELY comfortable!
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   I recently picked up this binding and I absolutely LOVE 'EM!!! They are PERFECT for riding through the park! The soft flex is great for all sorts of jibbing and just right for tweaking those grabs! These bindings are also VERY comfortable! The EVA padding on the baseplates help reduce chatter, sort of like rubber dampening on a snowboard! Although these binders aren't canted, the softness and comfortability helps reduce stress on the knees, just like canting does!

"Great Binding" 12/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Contact
  • Pros:  Flexy, Good for rails, Not to bad on a good size jump (30-40 feet)
  • Cons:  Toe strap takes a while to break in,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   First I have to say that I love these bindings. They worked great in the park and weren't to bad on the only jump. If you are going to buy this you must take into consideration were you live. I'm a mid-west ripper and I believe this binding is perfect for those conditions but If you ride a actual mountain (not a hill or in my case a old dump[litterally]) I would say you should get the Forces which are only $20 extra.

Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Contact
  • Pros:  look good, feel good,
  • Cons:  toe straps,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   I have these bindings for my signal park rocker and the combination is amazing, I would way rather prefer Contacts then Burton freestyle and mission, and like them just as much as burton Cartels, the only thing i don't like are the toe straps, they work have slipped of the toe of my boots but for some reason work perfect with my thirty twos....
