Below is a quick overview of the 2021 Union snowboard bindings lineup.
First I will take a look at any new bindings for the 2020-21 season, and any old 2020 models that aren't returning with a 2021 model.
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 be the same as how Union might categorize them.
New 2021 Union Bindings
The new bindings for 2020-21 are:
Exiting 2020 Union Bindings
The 2020 bindings that aren't returning with a 2021 model:
All 2021 Union Bindings by Category
I have categorized Union's 2020-21 collection below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Union sees them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every binding is different, but this is a rough guide.
UNION BEGINNER BINDINGS
UNION PARK/FREESTYLE BINDINGS
UNION ALL-MOUNTAIN BINDINGS
UNION ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREERIDE BINDINGS
UNION FREERIDE BINDINGS
UNION SPLITBOARD BINDINGS
UNION YOUTH BINDINGS
So there you have the 2021 Union snowboard bindings lineup.
The longstanding Ultra is gone and the Forged Force, which only got a 2020 model, after replacing the Ultra FC, is also out. The FC model is now an FC take on the Atlas.
The Atlas FC is the only fully new binding. However, the Atlas (non-FC) also had a major overhaul - getting a new baseplate, highback, ankle strap, toe strap and bushings.
The Force/Trilogy and Falcor got ankle strap and toe strap uprades, while the Juliet, Strata, Legacy, Contact Pro, Milan, Flite Pro & Rosa all got ankle strap upgrades. They were otherwise unchanged. The STR is identical to the 2020 model (though it got some really good upgrades for the 2020 model).
I was able to test a good number of 2021 Union bindings (including the overhauled Atlas and the brand new Atlas FC)` and I'll release my reviews for those through the year. For all of Snowboarding Profiles' Union reviews, check out the link at the button below.
