Hyped: Union Milan B4BC
Surfy, soft and supporting a good cause, the women's Union Milan bindings in the are a piece of gear we can get behind. Coming in with a premium B4BC (Boarding for Breast Cancer) colorway, these freestyle friendly bindings also support a good cause.
The softer flex is perfect for jibbing, and its lightweight for all day comfort. The women’s specific fit is can be easily adjusted to fit smaller, slender feet. The multi-zone Asym S2 highback has a soft flex in key zones for easy turning, while the stiffer flex on the outerside provides lateral support and premium control.
The Stage 5 Duraflex baseplate is sounds confusing, but it’s allows for minimal contact with your board, and is lightweigt, helping to deliver a more natural flex. The extruded anodized aluminum heelcup reduces weight and maintains strength and stiffness. It’s strong and durable and take what your throw at it. The 3D ankle strap provides a secure and responsive fit without creating painful points, while the strap is low-profile and cored-out to wrap around the front of your boot for a secure fit.
Additional Specs From evo:
Duraflex MD Milan Base – For more of a surfy feel, the Milan MD Base comes Duraflex injected and is the softest out of the MD Base family. Ideal for lighter riders and/or people looking for that playful “loose trucks” feeling.
Multi-Density Thermoformed EVA Bushings – Multi-Density Thermoformed Bushings sustain their function season after season – unlike competitors who use urethane, rubber or other materials that change color and become brittle over time.
Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcups – The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum act like a roll cage on a race car – stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides a seamless response.
Asym Lady Highbacks – A perfect Highback for freestyle and urban snowboarding. This super durable and responsive design is slightly tweaked towards the outside to compliment the natural canted base.
3D Symmetric Ankle Straps – Pre-curved 3D multi-layer strap core evenly distributes pressure, keeping you locked in and on point.
Aluminum Ratchets – Fast in and fast out – this mechanism combined with Union aluminum is superior to any binding ratchet on the market – with the exception of Union magnesium.
