When developing the Ultra, Gigi 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% and maintained the progressive flex Gigi loves.
- VAPORLITE 2.0: Vaporlite 2.0 is the evolution of closed cell foam often featured on high-end running shoes. This water resistant, durable material maintains its superior dampening characteristics in cold temperatures, providing a cushioned and natural ride.
- MINIDISK: Minimal Contact Footprint allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4x2 mounting pattern, as well as The Channel from Burton. With a mere 5% binding to board contact area, the MD Base enhances natural board flex, boosting performance and overall durability.
- BASEPLATE STIFFNESS: 5/10 -MEDIUM FLEX
- HIGHBACK STIFFNESS: 8/10 -STIFF AND RESPONSIVE
- DISK TYPE: MINI DISK 4X2 AND THE CHANNEL
Medium – 7.5 thru 10.5, Large – 10.5 thru 13 +
- FORGED CARBON HIGHBACKS: Working in harmony with the surfy feel of the MD Base, Forged Carbon provides the strength and rapid response, for nimble board control and connection.
- EXOFRAME/AIR ANKLE STRAPS: All new for 17/18, ExoFrame/Air produces strength and rapid response on the outside, fit and pillowed comfort on the inside.
- DURAFLEX CB - MD BASE: 5% binding to board contact allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4x2 mounting pattern, as well as The Channel from Burton.
- 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.
- VAPORLITE 2.0 BUSHING SYSTEM: Vaporlite 2.0 is the evolution of closed cell foam often featured on high-end running shoes. Super durable and damp to vibrations in all temps. Waterproof.
- 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.
Torstein has chosen his weapon and it’s built on a Vaporlight 2.0 base with Forged Carbon highbacks and the Exoframe/Air ankle straps are one of the best feeling binders on this beautiful round earth. This binding is best balance between, lightweight and stiffness. The Ultra can be ridden aggressively or mellow for a surfy feel. With only 5% plastic touching your board; you get 360 degrees of movement so you know the binding is going to react to every movement.
All mountain Killer!! Go anywhere and dominate everywhere. For the rider who wants a super aggressive binding while beating friends to the bottom of any run in any condition and making it look easy. Don’t shy away from the kickers either with this bad boy.
Forged Carbon is designed by Lamborghini for the chases of their race cars. Enough said.
