STAGE 4 DURAFLEX ST BASE

Blended to provide a smooth and responsive ride, Duraflex ST Nylon retains this inteded performance in a broad range of temperatures.

MULTI-DENSITY THERMOFORMED EVA BUSHINGS

Multi-Density Thermoformed Bushings sustain their function season after season – unlike competitors who use urethane, rubber or other materials that change color and become brittle over time.

EXTRUDED 3D ALUMINUM HEELCUPS

The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car – stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response.

FORCE HIGHBACKS

Duraflex Injected Multizone Force Highbacks are tapered towards the top, providing flex and tweakablity whre you want it, support and durability whre you need it.

SYMMETRIC SONIC FUSED ANKLE STRAPS

Three dimensional Direct-Connect core evenly distributes strap pressure and allows lateral freedom. Minimized stiching provides exceptional durability.

MAGNESIUM RATCHETS

This Union exclusive process produces a material 4 times the strength of aluminum with only 1/2 the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet.
