Kids snowboards continue to improve in leaps and bounds, but a good pair of bindings is just as important for the young ‘uns as it is for adults. That’s why we recruited an intrepid team of hard-shredding groms to put several models through their paces, and of those a clear winner emerged: the Union Cadet Youth binding.
“The nylon baseplate is all but indestructible, as is the extruded aluminium heel cup”
It may not be quite as space-age in its appearance as Travis Rice’s signature design, the Union Falcor, but it’s not short of tech. The guys at Union pride themselves on not short-changing younger riders, offering them many of the same great characteristics that their adult counterparts enjoy.
For starters, the Union Cadet Youth binding is tough. The nylon baseplate is all but indestructible, as is the extruded aluminium heel cup. The combination is covered with a lifetime warranty, giving you peace of mind – well, as much as you can have while your offspring is getting to grips with the shred.
