I was gonna make a Baron joke, but I am a gentleman and preferred allow you to score and take the primary assist.

Also Red Baron's girlfriend/wife is hot....you are, clearly, hotter though. It's nice that she doesn't mind.

CA ALLLDAY!!!

Don't see what's so funny.

That's how they're supposed to fit.

Let me ask you a queston, could you go out on a hill, riding a pair of those Atlas bindings, and at the end of the day legitimately tell me that you didn't have a fun day riding (pending conditions) because of a pair of toe caps that didn't fit you personally as well as some other bindings?

Please answer haha

Mine aren't cranked down that much. I have about 4 teeth showing.

Is this a preference thing?

Sure if I had to ride those I'd still have fun. That's not the point. The point is everyone else is doing better straps. Why support a brand that refuses to address user concerns?

Define "better".

I love those straps, they work perfectly for me, which is why I chose to support them. I've owned and ridden a ton of bindings before, and I really Unions. I didn't like the straps on my Malavitas. They felt too cushy and unresponsive for me. Does that mean those straps don't work for other people better than Unions? Sure.

But there's obviously a ton of people who have seen what the market offers, and chosen to support Union.

Like I said, define better. Snowboarding isn't about quantifying "riding experience", it's about having fun. And if those bindings don't work for you, then that sucks, but good thing there's a fuckload of other companies out there that you can choose from and find something that fits you and your riding style.

But just because you personally don't like how Unions ride, doesn't make them a terrible binding, or have "worse" straps.
