I've been riding the Forces and Atlases for a number of years and wanted to try out what else Union had to offer in their line, since I've loved every other pair of bindings I've had from them and the Contact Pros don't disappoint. They are definitely a noticeably softer binding but they still have plenty of response to get you through chunkier. Extremely comfortable and have that bullet proof feel I've come to love Union for. Awesome bindings.
Great boot to do it all with. Great support with enough flex to really have fun with. The Pirelli rubber is ridiculously grippy too. May not be the best for people who battle with heal lift, but I've managed to dial in the fit well despite having this issue in the past. They do run a bit small. I'm normally a 9.5 and had to get a 10
