Bindings For Neversummer SL

Title explains it all. This is my style of riding.

I am more all mountain than just the terrain park. I like to hit natural features and be playful - all the while staying on runs. I may do a couple laps in the park, but I tend to shy away from it now. A couple jumps and a few boxes is about it.

I was told to look at the Union SL or Union Atlas. I am not familiar with these. I currently have Burton Missions from 2007-08 but it drives me crazy because I can crank them tight and after a few runs there is this "gap" between the ankle strap and my boot. I'm pretty picky about that - I want it snug and fit with no movement and no choke points on blood flow.

I know to get a binding that fits my boot - however I'd like to narrow it down to 2/3 models to go after for comparison with the boot.

Oh - of course... my boots are Burton Ions from a few years back. They still rock. Size 10 I think? I have forgotten. Between 9.5 and 10.5.

I ride both the Union SL and Atlas and both would suit this board well.

I currently covet the Union Team Atlas with carbon infused baseplate (the SuperPro) for my all mountain board. It's the same as the SL with a stiffer highback. I'd recommend that over all.

Burton Cartels - had these on my SL and they pair really well. I currently have last years Cartels on my Phoenix. They are a good all around binding.

Raiden Phantoms - My buddy has these on his Phoenix. I've only rode them a few times but I was very impressed with how comfortable and cushioned they are. I'm a big fan of the air bags.

Union SL - I currently have these on my Cobra. I've never been a Union guy but figured I'd try em out this year. They are very responsive without being very stiff.

Thanks for the replies. I haven't used Flux or Union.

Do the Cartels have the loosening traits like my missions do?

I'm not familiar with the new term of "canting". From what I understand - it is either built into the baseplate of the binding or done through a foam that forms to the legs - giving each foot a slight angle to help the knees?

Is it worth to go after a binding with this?

(Sidenote - I'm also considering a NS Cobra, which combines the proto and SL - so the bindings may go on that board too, but since it is so similar, it should work just the same as with bindings for the SL)

I personally like canting, helps with my feet (get really bad pains) and just makes it more 'natural' and lets me have a wider stance. The K2 Formulas for instance I believe are 3degrees canted (correct me if I'm wrong?) and its the foam footbed that gives it the canting, on the formulas at least.

Some of my top contenders:

K2 Company IPO

Burton Cartel or Malavita

Flux DMCC/Light


My '12 Malvitas are doing great, pretty much cannot tell they are there. They weigh nothing and the straps are just perfect.

Atlases would be rad for your riding style chatty.

Extremo, not to thread jack, but I'm not certain taht the team atlas/super pro have carbon infused baseplates.

I think it's just an atlas with cool colors and a team highback.

It looks like you're right. I thought I had read they were the same baseplate as this years charger but I just found a product description that says it's just the Stage II baseplate. That's disappointing.
