The 2020 Union Milan is a freestyle binding that offers pro-level performance with flex and tech that everyone can ride. A favourite of Union pro rider Jamie Anderson, one of the most successful competitive snowboarders of all time, the Milans soft flex and lightweight baseplate make it the ideal binding for creative freestyle lines, tech rail tricks, and smooth and stylish tweaks, with a female specific, anatomically correct design that is incredible light and comfortable across a wide variety of terrain. The Milan has minimal board to binding contact which results in less board interference, maintaining the natural flex of your board for true board feel and comfortable presses, and asymmetric highbacks and straps for even pressure distribution, added stability, and seamless boot to binding integration. Most importantly it looks amazing and improves your freestyle game, what more do you want?
Binding Type: All Mountain Freestyle
Flex (1 - Soft / 10 - Stiff):
Highback: 5 / 10
Baseplate: 4 / 10
Straps: 6 / 10
Board Compatibility: This binding comes with a mini-disk that is compatible with 2x4 inserts, and the Channel binding mounting systems.
Base Plate: Duraflex CP3
The Duraflex CP3 baseplate comes Duraflex injected, making it the softest and most forgiving in the Duraflex range. This gives your board the most natural flex and provides the skate-like feeling favoured by freestyle riders.
Highback: CP3 S Highbacks
Not only do these highbacks look amazing, they're incredibly light, comfortable, and suited to all types of terrain. Originally designed by Gigi Ruf and redesigned specifically for females, the CP3 Lady is anatomically correct for premium performance, strictly for the ladies.
Buckles: Union Aluminium Ratchets
A smooth and fast mechanism combined with Union aluminium creates a light and durable ratchet that feels good, looks good, and works even better.
Straps: Forma Ankle Straps + Ultragrip Toe Straps
The new Forma ankle strap produces strength and rapid response on the outside, fit and comfort on the inside. The Ultragrip Toe Strap offers multi-positional options and is made from a thermoplastic anti-slip material to keep you securely locked in.
Cushioning: Full Bottomed Thermoformed EVA Bushings
The Milan features a full EVA footbed for shock absorption and chatter reduction, as well as Thermoformed EVA Bushings that allow for natural canting and provide a more surfy/skatey feel.
Extruded 3D Aluminium Heelcups:
This heelcup increased the stiffness of the binding, increases response, and is adjustable to help you dial in the perfect fit.
Mini Forward Lean Adjuster:
No tools needed for this one, just flick the tab down and slide the panel for more response or a looser feeling ride on the fly.
Grade 8.8 Hardware:
Union ensure their hardware is reliable by using the strongest steel available on the market.
