Highback Flex

Pretty soft and the Union Scott Stevens Contact Pro takes it a noticeable bit softer than the regular contact pro.

Binding to Boot Adjustability

This is what Union does super well and the Union Scott Stevens Contact Pro is no exception. There is an adjustable heel loop so you can get most boots centered in the binding. That means it will be easy to center on board. Straps have tooless adjustability but you can’t really rotate the highback like the Contact Pro. Its so soft though that it isn’t as much of a big deal as it is with the Falcor and other really stiff union highbacks.

Stance Width Adjustability

Because you can center most boots in the binding you will be able to turn the discs tip to tail and get excellent stance width adjustability with the mini discs.

Boot Support

The new ankle straps for 2021 Union Scott Stevens Contact Pro are for sure the call. They have way more support than past models but still have good freedom of movement for tweakability.

Ratchet System

Great right out of the box and I haven’t had ratchet issues with Union for years now.

Turn Initiation/Response

Pretty close to the Contact Pro and you get a lot more response than you would think from playing around with it in a shop.

Flex Under Foot/Buttering

It butters really well and is right there with the best of the best.

Shock Absorption/Dampness

Really good slower speed shock absorption for smaller to medium features. However it still is no slouch when going big. It just isn’t as damp as the Stratas with the more rubbery bushings on the base plate.
