Sierra Says: The staple of Unions line, the Force continues to impress. This great freestyle/all mountain binding has the perfect blend of response, flexibility, strength and weight. Really, if we could genetically engineer the perfect binding that was made for everything, it would be the Force. Wait…. Isn’t that just what Union did? I think so.

"Middle of the road ..." 12/6/2010
Helpful Review?   (8) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  - Sturdy, - Nice straps,
  • Cons:  mid/soft flex,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   I have Forces from 2009 and 2011. I'm going to give u an honest low down. I generally like this binding for it's simplicity. Solid straps, easy adjustments etc. As an FYI- the toe cap works great if you figure out exactly how to position it on your boot(Mine has never slipped) The flex pattern on the highback is stiffer at the bottom and gets softer as you work your way up. This is perfect for Park and goofing around which is why the 2009 pair is on my Neversummer Evo-r. I'm 6'2 200lbs and for me this binding is soft/medium response. I briefly had the 2011 pair on my 2011 TRICE(260ww) and the response was mushy at best. I put 2011 cartels on my TRICE and it was a perfect match. People generally say Forces/cartels are comparable in response. Not true. The 2011 Cartel has a much more responsive highback. If you're a strong, powerful rider who hits big lines, variable steep terrain, or tight areas where response is CRITICAL, avoid the force and step up to the Force Sl or another brand. For everyone else, this is a solid everyday all- mountain binding.

Comments & Questions



gofeman
the ting thats special about the forces is that the high back is very stiff in the middle, yet extremely flexibale on the sides making it the perfect binding.

Flavboarder
soo if the force is a soft binding what is the contact then

"Best bang for the buck!" 9/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (5) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  Solid all around design, Comfy straps, Great amount of adjustability
  • Cons:  Tricky cap strap,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   One of the bindings that will never let you down, no matter where you take it. Grind them in the park, float it in the freshies, slash it on the groomers, nail it on the jumps. This is the binding that does it all. From the first moment you strap in, you can feel how solid the bindings are. The response is there when you need it and the bindings are mid stiff. My only gripe is the design of the cap strap. There is a correct way to wear them and may not be common knowledge to all. I am talking about having the thin piece of plastic run across the toe of your boot, while the rest of the strap sits on top. Just googgle it and you will find out. The only way that i can see them improving the force is adding a cant bed, but other then that, for the price you are paying, don't regret it.

"Simple and to the Point" 8/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (5) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  Comfortable, nice flex, bombproof
  • Cons:  toe strap,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Like the forces everyone has come to love, these bindings will not let you down. while there is no real changes between these and last seasons, these bindings will still get you down the mountain and keep your feet strapped to your board in comfort. they are a very simple binding tech-wise, but will last for more than one season and are extremely durable. also, a lifetime warranty on the baseplates cannot be beat!

Comments & Questions



lennys101
I'm looking at getting these bindings and am a size 10, what size binding should i get?

little_chris
pretty sure you'd need a LXL for a size 10 boot.

Dsturs
depends on the boot. my size 10 ride boots a few seasons back fit into a m/l. better to check in person.

"Good Job Union!" 10/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  minimal board contact , shock absorbtion , comfort
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Just about perfect w/ any board or boot out there which is near difficult to achieve. That being said these bindings are a true jack of all trades. The toe response is probably the best I've ever rode. It also has alot of lateral flexibility but if you were to pull this straight back to the heel edge you will be surprised at how stiff they really feel...big plus in my book. Final thoughts one of the smooothest rides that I've ever owned & great alternative for a 200 dollar buget. Strongly recommending buying this binding! I did.

"FORCE " 9/13/2011
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  light, durable, functions perfect , doo it all, responsive, great ratchets.,
  • Cons:  just check your screws, didn't make enough ,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   The union force bindings have become the industry standard these are the best bindings for the price they function well in all areas and are super durable. The ratchets work great time after time and the footbed has just enough cushion to be soft on jump landings but responsive when flying. Over all one of the best bindings out their.

"Another 5 star review?!?! yup" 12/31/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  nuclear missle proof, adjustablity,
  • Cons:  ankle strap bolt design (sorta),
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   these bindings dont really need more positive reviews...but im gonna write one anyway. Think of Union Forces the way you think of your girlfriend...sure they may not be the prettiest thing on the rack, but what they lack in looks they make up for with personality. After you've ridden them a few times (giggity) and you realize just how advanced and bullet proof they are, well then you fall in love with them (awww). Then you take another look at 'em and hey, whatta ya know...they are pretty damn sexy after all. Union has got it right with the Force. So much so they they hardly have to change anything from year to year. Practically indestructible construction. If you somehow manage to break something (you wont) Union has excellent customer service. Overall they have a nice med stiff flex. The baseplates themselves are stiff, and the highback is stiff when pressure is applied straight back, and a little bit softer when flexed torsionally (twisting). This makes for great go-anywhere response. Awesome in any snow conditions. Someone who rides exclusively park may want something a little softer, but if you ride some park and some mountain (im about 50/50) then you cant go wrong with these. Plus you wont see every other Jack on the mountain with the same bindings as you. Toe Strap: some people like it, some dont. Personally i love it, and i would guess that at least a few of the people that dont like it are trying to wear it too far forward. Ive never had a problem with the toe strap slipping on my Burton Ions, although im sure it would vary to some degree with different kinds of boots. The only area id like to see improved is the bolts for the ankle strap. The design is such that if youre not careful they can work loose. This can be easily avoided by just using your man sized muscles to tighten them up real good. Something like the ankle bolts on the Union Contacts tho, for anyone familiar, would be a nice addition next year.

Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  Fast reaction, Comfortable, fleX,
  • Cons:  None,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Having ridden primarily Burton bindings since my early shred days, i was pretty skeptical that anything would ride as good as my trusty P1 so the unions really had their work cut out for them. outta the box i was real impressed by the build quality and details of these bindings; great attention to detail. the bindings have a ton of adjustments

"Great choice for all use" 8/22/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (9) No

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  Amazing stability, great response, great for park/freestyle
  • Cons:  straps sometimes slip when falling, high highback, people can't take their eyes off of them
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I tested these on my park pickle in the terrain park, and on a black diamond. I couldn't beleive I hadn't owned a pair before. They're everything you want in a binding. If you're looking to rip the park, do it...if you're looking to kill the whole mountain, do it as well. You CAN'T go wrong with these.

  • Name: Union Force
  • Pros:  comfortable, light, durable
  • Cons:  toe straps,

Experience:   Everything a binding should and more, they work all over the mountain from jibing and the terrain park to shredding your way down the mountain. This should be the standard for any bindings.
