Still relatively new to the Union family, the Strata has been able to muscle its way into the already stacked range and was able to stand on its own two feet from day one. The Strata is a solid all mountain maverick designed for riders who are looking for equipment that is able to withstand the stresses and strains of day after day riding.
The Strata uses a Duraflex ST baseplate designed to deal with cold temperatures and like all Union baseplates comes with a lifetime warranty, so you know it’s tough as nails. It pairs with the Fused Vaporlite bushings to absorb chatter and soak up vibrations. You’ll have a smoother, more precise, ride and some extra cushioning when landing heavily.

Does anything suck more than unnecessary aches and pains as you’re riding? The Strata are slightly tilted so your foot sits in with the outside marginally higher up. This translates to increased comfort through the knees as you’re rocking a wider stance. The straps sit ergonomically round your boots to get rid of hotspots and offer support where you need it.
Forward lean is such a subjective thing, but if you are a fan the PushPin FLAD on the Strata couldn’t be easier. Just push the knob in and twist, and voila… you’re cranked down.
Your body isn’t 100% symmetrical, and to mirror this the highback isn’t either. It offers more support on the outside where you need it so you’ll be able to rip and grip longer and harder without wasting energy. This is a great binding made for demanding riders who will put their equipment through its paces.
