Stage 11 ASYM Duraflex ST Baseplate

By removing excess material in the toe and heel of the baseplate, and utilizing a brand new asymmetrical shape, we’ve been able to drastically increase the torsional flex of the binding. The Ultra’s Stage 11 ASYM baseplate allows for 360 degree board flex and feel.

PROGRESSIVE CONTACT.

When developing the Ultra, Gigi had one goal: Uncompromised board flex and feel. To create a binding that had these characteristics required reducing the contact points on the base and integrating flexible, dampening EVA. By combining Vaporlite 2.0 with the Minidisk, we’ve lowered the direct binding to board contact to 5% and maintained the progressive flex Gigi loves.

VAPORLITE 2.0

Vaporlite 2.0 is the evolution of closed cell foam often featured on high-end running shoes. This water resistant, durable material maintains its superior dampening characteristics in cold temperatures, providing a cushioned and natural ride.

MINIDISK

Minimal Contact Footprint allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4×2 mounting pattern, as well as The Channel from Burton. With a mere 5% binding to board contact area, the MD Base enhances natural board flex, boosting performance and overall durability.

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.

VAPORLITE 2.0

Vaporlite 2.0 is the evolution of closed cell foam often featured on high-end running shoes. This water resistant, durable material maintains its superior dampening characteristics in cold temperatures, providing a cushioned and natural ride.

MAGNESIUM 2.0 RATCHETS

Four times stronger than aluminum with only half the weight, Union buckles are built to last. The new 2.0 design is ten percent lighter than previous versions.
