Union Altas '13 Toe Straps / Ratchets
Hi There Guys,
First of all, I'm new to the forum so.. Hi Everyone!
So I got myself some Atlas 2013s last year and I am having a major problem getting the toe strap ratchet to release. I've even had to unscrew myself a few times. It's mainly my lead foot but the other one has been fairly hard also. I've heard some complaints about the Union toe straps being shite so just curious it anyone else has had this problem? I know some boots shapes can be an issue with them as well. I have Vans Encore boots if anyone has any idea about the shapes that don't work.
I've also read that they have reduced the pressure on the toe straps from 10lbs to 7lbs for probably this reason. Anyone know if this is the case and the newer vesion does alleviate this problem?
Also, if so, how would I go about swapping the straps/ratchets I've heard people have a few problems getting Union spares. I've seen some stuff at c3-shop but just want to make sure I'll be getting the latest hardware, if it does infact help. The springs in the ratchets are fairly loose anyway from trying to force them open so many times.
Or should I just switch bindings? I've had Burton Bindings in the past and never had this exreme a problem getting undone.
