The Atlas strap is asymmetric and a little bit softer. I believe they have the same core but the Force strap directs the pressure through the seam of the boots crease while the Atlas strap distributes it more through its asymmetric pressure zones.

You mean the asymmetric straps on next year's Force? The strap on the current Force is symmetric. I'd say the asymmetric strap on the Atlas has more lateral flex than the symmetric strap currently on the Force.

The atlas has gel like substance on the inside part of the strap making it really soft and cushy.

the Force is not like that , it has the dots coming out still good but not as good as atlas.

I'm pretty sure it's just a soft foam. My Force has the same material down the center of the strap. The Atlas just has it spread out over the entire thing. Atlas strap is def more comfortable.
