Union Atlas

So everyone talks about the Forces. Yes they are the hot binding and all, yada yada yada, but the new Atlas is what Union learned from the Force and brings progression with better adjust-ability and materials.

What is your opinion on these new bindings?? Will these replace the Force series? What do you think?

My store doesnt carry Union so I dont have a rep to fill me in on these.

It's a Union it might get the job done but I'd look elsewhere. Where's the Nose he'll probably scream bloody murder I said that.

I'm interested in how Atlas owners feel about them. I'm currently trying to decide between the Union Atlas, Ride Capo, Flux SF45 and Burton Cartel Restricted.

Haven't ridden them but for the $340 Canadian they want for them at most places here they better clean my house as well as hold me to my board.

^But their toe strap does work. Unions aren't my favorite bindings, but lets not throw out lies.

well, i've rode them - and the toestrap does not work for shit as a toecap. it is garbage, and for a company that pretty much only makes bindings to have the shittiest toestrap on the market is ridiculous.

I believe you. But they may work for him. especially their new straps that have been tweaked since the 2012 demo models came out. Fit my friends burton boots fine, my rome boots, brother's 32 boots.

Agreed 340 plus 13% tax... Way out of my price range to try

Tried the Atlases on today in a shop. Felt good on the toes despite a pointy toe box (nike zf1's). How did the sample bindings differ? This board is so finicky with their brands, hate one dayŚlove the next.
