This is going to be a brief overview of the 2020 Union Snowboard Bindings lineup.
First I will take a look at any new bindings for the 2019-20 season, and any old 2019 models that aren't returning.
Then I'll look at each binding and put them into the categories where I see them best fitting.
These categories may or may not represent the same as where Union would put them.
New 2020 Union Bindings
The new bindings for 2019-20 are:
2019 Union Bindings Not Returning
The 2019 bindings that aren't returning with a 2020 model:
So not a huge amount has changed. But there have been tweaks to most models, with the most significant changes to the Ultra. But some nice upgrades for the likes of the STR and Contact Pro too.
All 2020 Union Bindings by Category
Union's 2019-20 bindings have been categorized below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as what Union themselves might label them as.
Of course these are only broad categories as every binding is different, and can be used for multiple purposes, but this is a rough guide.
UNION BEGINNER BINDINGS
UNION PARK/FREESTYLE BINDINGS
UNION ALL-MOUNTAIN BINDINGS
UNION ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
UNION FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
UNION SPLIT BOARD BINDINGS
UNION YOUTH BINDINGS
So there you have the 2020 Union Snowboard Bindings.
Pretty much business as usual, with most bindings getting some kind of upgrade (be it bushings, ankle strap etc). The Ultra has had a number of changes, and the STR, IMO, has had the biggest improvement, compared to the previous models.
Most men's and women's models get a new ankle strap (all except Force, Flite Pro, Legacy and Trilogy) and a new toe strap (all except Contact Pro, STR, Flite Pro, Milan, Juliet and Rosa).
I was privileged to try several 2020 Union bindings in early 2019 and will be publishing my reviews for those throughout the year.
