2018 UNION FALCOR
To reflect the dynamic level of riding and power that Travis Rice is known for, the Falcor integrates materials with multiple densities into both the base and highback – taking full advantage of each material’s attributes. The result is ride that is forgiving where you need flex and responsive where you want direct connectivity.
Travis Rice's custom Union Falcor Snowboard Bindings were years in the making and represent the pinnacle of strong, light, and versatile bindings for sending innovative lines all over the planet. The top-shelf Stage 6 Duraflex base and Forged Hybrid highback integrate materials with multiple densities to produce a ride that is forgiving where flex is needed and responsive where board feel and connectivity matter most. The Vaporlite 3.0 bushings are coated with Union s Non-Stick™ formula to minimize ice buildup so you can ride comfortably and hassle-free wherever you go. The Union Falcor Snowboard Bindings help Travis blur the line between what is sport and what is art.
