The Union Atlas is the new all around binding in the Union line up. A binding built to do everything, think of it as the big brother to the Force. Look at these if you need a quality, responsive binding that is build to be comfortable and last a lifetime.
Made to be lightweight and comfortable, it has easy to adjust strap positions, so you can easily make the straps fit perfectly to your boot.
Much like the Contacts, the the contact area of the baseplate is reduced to stop the true flex of the board being restricted by the bindings.
Tougher and lighter than Aluminium, the Atlas has magnesium buckles, helping to save binding weight wherever they can.
Overall, the Atlas is the binding for someone who needs a light, and responsive binding that will handle tough shredding. It is comfortable, and flexible enough for the park, and strong enough for all mountain riding.
In the end you get a lot of binding for the money, and a few major plusses over the Force for around about $240.
