Seeing as how the focus of your backcountry excursions is shredding untracked powder on the ride down, Union designed the Expedition FC to deliver the closest feeling possible to shredding on a solid board with standard bindings. It also has simple design that minimizes moving parts, not only lending a solid feel, but also making it easier to operate. Union's unique split interface corkscrews your board together for a more solid connection that gives you greater confidence when charging steep big mountain lines and sending cliffs. One pin is all it takes to change modes and lock the system in place, offering simplicity that's less of a hassle to deal with when crouching on an exposed peak in bitter-cold temps. A quick forward lean adjuster lets you easily decrease the highback angle for easier uphill travel, and a Quick Flip ladder increases stride efficiency on steep skin tracks. Forged Carbon makes the baseplate incredibly stiff and responsive, yet lightweight, resulting in more efficient ascents and powerful response on the way down. The forged heelcup increases the binding's overall stiffness for seamless response, which is key when rolling the dice in no-fall zones. The ExoFrame 4. 0 ankle strap offers quick energy transfer along with pillowy comfort, and the TS-3. 0 toe strap and Magnesium buckles shave weight, which is ideal for long tours where every ounce counts.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
