EVOLUTION OF A REVOLUTION.
The Strata is 100% new model to the Union lineup. Featuring the Stage 6 Direct Injected base, the Strata incorporates a "industry first" Fused Vaporlite Bushing System that sets new standards for how a snowboard binding should function and perform. Pipe, parks or powder, the all-new Strata is the next generation of product progression.
- FUSED VAPORLITE: Utilizing an injection molding process very similar to the way plastic parts are created, Fused Vaporlite is a new material that is more waterproof, durable and precise than any other EVA material on the market today.
- FORMA ANKLE STRAP: New and improved, the design of the Forma Ankle Strap produces strength and rapid response on the outsider, fit and pillowed comfort on the inside.
- BASEPLATE STIFFNESS: 4/10 -MEDIUM FLEX
- HIGHBACK STIFFNESS: 5/10 -MEDIUM FLEX
- DISK TYPE: MINI DISK 4X2 AND THE CHANNEL
Medium – 7.5 thru 10, Large – 10.5 thru 13 +
- HIGHBACK: ALL-NEW STRATA
- STRAPS: FOMA
- STAGE VI DIRECT INJECT DURAFLEX ST: Design, material, and the construction process result in a strength to weight ratio never before achieved in a snowboard binding. Developed, used and abused by Travis Rice.
- EXTRUDED 3D ALUMINUM HEELCUPS: The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response.
- BUSHING: FUSED VAPORLITE
- MAGNESIUM 2.0 RATCHETS: Four times stronger than aluminum with only half the weight, Union buckles are built to last. The new 2.0 design is ten percent lighter than previous versions.
Traditionally when we hear the word “Strata,” images of delectable breakfast casseroles come to mind. A medley of bread, eggs, and cheese layered and baked together to create a timeless comfort food that is loved by billions. Literally.
However, the time has now come to replace those mental images of savory breakfast dishes with something truly mental; the all-new 18/19 Strata binding. Just like its namesake, we’ve combined a medley of awesome features into one awesome binding.
The Strata is a completely new binding to Union’s line featuring a Fused Vaporlite baseplate that is more waterproof, durable, and precise than any other EVA material in the industry. It also sports the Forma Ankle Strap that has gotten an update for this season. This strap has a minimalist feel but has a level of comfort and performance that is second to none.
The Strata has taken the snowboard binding design to the next level and will blaze its own path into the future. You don’t have to take our word for it though, the Strata will make a believer out of you for itself. Strap in, we dare you.
The rider who doesn’t put a label on their riding style. This binding will devour any kind of terrain.

The Strata was developed closely with Torstein Horgmo. He knows a thing or two about bindings.
