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 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.
Minimal Contact Footprint allows for even board flex and is compatible with the 4x2 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.
