Union : FC Binding!

For those looking for luxury, look no further than the 
FC (Forged Carbon) Binding from Union Bindings
 To witness product progression, look no further than the Forged FC. Rather than laying up carbon fiber in sheets and impregnating it with resin like your typical carbon fiber manufacturing. Forged Carbon uses a paste of fibers (500,00 turbostratic fibers per square inch) molded under extremely high pressure producing a lighter and stronger finished product.
Union’s Cooperation with Lamborghini ACSL on Forged Carbon Binding Created An Industry-First
MUNICH, GERMANY (January 23, 2014) — Union Binding Company is honored to receive the ISPO Product of the Year award in the action segment for its new Forged FC Binding. Developed in close cooperation with Automobili Lamborghini Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory (ACSL), the Forged FC is the first binding ever to use Forged Carbon. The material is the lightest and strongest on the market, delivering peak performing heelside response and control.
“When we started this project, I was shocked by the intensity of the loads to which professional riders, like Travis Rice and Gigi Rüf, subject these bindings,” said Paolo Feraboli, Ph.D, Director, Automobili Lamborghini ACSL. “Forged technology provides the best solution in terms of weight, stiffness and strength. We introduced all of our competence in carbon fiber and lightweight engineering into one stunning form to create the Union Forged Carbon product line.”
