I'm running Union Force's right now, and was wondering how these compare in flex and response, as I really like the toe strap design on these compared to Union's. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
First off, Union makes great bindings. They guys are on point. Forum bindings have a technology called "Good Vibes". This allows any Good Vibes binding to flex 70%!!! more than any disk binding on the market. The more flex you have underfoot the more board feel and board control you have. If you can feel your board you instantly become better.
The Republic is made with 30% fiberglass in the nylon baseplate and the heelcup is aluminum. The heelcup attaches directly under the toe section of the baseplate, as soon as any pressure is applied against the highback the toe lifts. Great response, Great binding, and Amazing Flex with responsibility.
Good Vibes is the Best Binding Tech for Disk bindings.
