I'll be the first "hater" to comment on the new line then.
The only thing I see that I wasn't fond of before that didn't change is the heel dampening section in the Atlas base. And that is more of a personal thing that I don't consider to necessarily be a "design flaw". There is a very simple fix for my issue with it, but still.
New toe ratchet, new toe strap, canting in at least 1 model as far as I can tell, heel dampening in the Force, the Flite Pro looks rad as shit...
Kudos Union. This could be a very good year for you. I would really like a chance to ride some.
