Union Atlas

Has anyone tried the Atlas yet? I know it is early but I really want a pair and no one around my area has any in-stock to feel haha. I am going to have to special order but I want to see what people think of them first

I would also really like to know how the Atlas ride and how they compare to bindings like the force, targa, cartel etc.

Thanks, The mag review isn't a review, just a feature list like on the Union site. I have read Shayboarders review and I respect her opinion but like to hear from some guys on them. I'm not trying to be sexist or anything but the way a binding rides and responds will definitely be different with a 200lb man strapped in them vs. a 150lb woman.

I agree with 100% I read somewhere that it ride very similar to the Force with a little bit more response.
If you bite the bullet and get these please write a review.

Ill take one for the team and get them this year. It won't be until mid November until I get to ride them however because I live in Wisconsin.

Cheers boys!

I am going to likely pick these up or a pair of SLs and will write a review as soon as I ride them.

I ordered the SLs and here is what I found. On Unions with the Stage III base plate (Atlas, SL, MC), the base is much larger than the Stage II base plate (Force). The l/xl Forces fit my boots and board very well but the l/xl SLs I tried were much larger and the base of the binding actually hung over the edge of my board by about a 1/4'' so those were automatically eliminated.
