these straps look similar but are they the same?
i ride the force but wanted to try out the atlas strap on my pow board if it might have more response
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.
so do you think the forces new asymmetric strap has more lateral flex than the atlas strap? thanks again
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.
