Anyone have any insight on whether the trilogy are good freeride bindings? none of my friends who ride have union so i have nothing to go off of. Also, any big changes for the 14 vs 13 versions?

i'm stoked on my '13 forces - till the '15 model with espresso machine comes out. no problems with the high back digging here, but i don't whine about the toe strap 'being hard to take off' either... ice cold, strong bindings might hurt dainty hands...

being in the design field, i will just say that union has some of the best design and branding out there, and a lot of my friends in the industry have been initially attracted to the company for that reason... only to find out that the bindings do in fact, kick ass.

The new Force base is slightly softer than the old one. Maybe 5%.

The big difference is weight. It's 30% lighter. If that's not a "progression" of a binding model, then I don't know what is.


How's summer treating everybody?

Looking for rather stiff freeride bindings for a rather stiff board. Trilogy or Legacy? Big change to '13? Since the Legacy is pricier, is there more padding/dampening/whatsoever?

What size feet do you have nini?

The Legacy is the stiffest girls binding we offer. Padding - All the girls bindings have 50% more padding on the highback, strap, and footbed. I'd say the Trilogy is the dampest binding we have, but it's not very stiff.

Depending on your size, we offer smalls in several men's baseplates. This could be the best option. Jess Kimura ran some for a bit, but decided she likes soft bindings in the end. She rides the Trilogy, and I think she's a wms 8.
