Many split-specific bindings are focused on making it easier to get to the top, but at the cost of downhill performance. Considering that your ultimate goal is to score fresh powder on the way down, Union designed the Expedition 2. 0 Splitboard Binding to deliver the closest feeling possible to shredding on a solid board with standard bindings. It also has simple design that minimizes moving parts, not only lending a solid feel, but also making it quick and easy to switch over at the top. Union's unique split interface corkscrews your board together for a more solid connection that gives you greater confidence when charging steep big mountain lines and sending cliffs. One pin is all it takes to change modes and lock the system in place, offering simplicity that's less of a hassle to deal with when crouching on an exposed peak in bitter-cold temps. A quick forward lean adjuster lets you easily decrease the highback angle for easier uphill travel, and a Quick Flip ladder increases stride efficiency on steep skin tracks. The forged heelcup increases the binding's overall stiffness for seamless response, which is key when rolling the dice in no-fall zones. And seeing no reason that this top-shelf binding should be confined to just splitboards, Union created a Union Split System that allows you to mount the Expedition to regular boards, too, so you can enjoy it whether you're in the backcountry or at the resort.
