While developing the Ultra, Gigi Rüf and the engineers at Union had one goal: uncompromised board flex and feel. To create a binding that had these characteristics required reducing the contact points on the base and integrating flexible, dampening EVA. By combining Vaporlite 2.0 with the Minidisk, we've lowered the direct binding to board contact to 5% while maintaining the progressive flex that Gigi loves.
NON-STICK EVA + VAPORLITE 2.0
New for 18/19 is the application of Non-Stick™ coating to our EVA dampening systems. Gone are the days of getting ice buildup on your footbeds and highbacks. Coated Vaporlite 2.0 is an extremely durable material that maintains dampening characteristics in cold temperatures and provides a cushioned and natural ride.
