The Union binding ratchets don't slip at all, in fact, some people have an issue with them being harder to take off than other bindings. Which, isn't a big deal at all, and is pretty comforting if you ask me.
Atlas is my favorite binding ever though, give that a look as well.
The contact pro is a jib oriented park binding. It's not for freeriding.

The Atlas baseplate is as stiff as the Force but it has a softer highback and softer ankle straps. If you're spending more time in the park I'd recommend the Atlas, if you're spending more time riding the entire mountain then get the Force.
