Question Doubt: Union Atlas vs. Force vs. Flite Pro

Hi everyone!

First of all I will say that my level of snowboarding is still kinda beginner/entry level. I just ordered my first whole new snowboard (Nitro T1, 2014) and I'm really looking forward to testing it!

To the board I need some bindings *surprise*
Actually I've already ordered the Union Atlas M/L, 2014. But after I have been reading a bit thread's that have been going on in here I have come to doubt. I don't know if the Atlas is the right one for me at my level right now.

My boots right now are Burton Moto 8.5.
My riding style is like 20% park (rails, boxes and small kickers) 20% off-pists and 60% jibbing down the mountain I think.

Do you think it is "necessary" for me to go for the Atlas or should I start trying the Flite Pro or the Force?

Please come with some recommendation for me if possible. I really appreciate it!

Your honestly probably worrying too much, just stick with your order of those Atlas and enjoy.

You'll be fine. Don't worry about it, especially if you've already bought the bindings.

Put them on your board, and have fun snowboarding.

You're both probably right! I just want to be sure that I don't buy something that doesn't fit my level and such. But thank you very much for your fast respond!

Don't worry too much about equipment above your level. I honestly don't think there is skill levels for boards, there are just boards meant for different things and do different things well. Shit im coming into my 2nd season this coming winter and you should've seen what I was riding last season and what all ive got set aside for this coming season.

I see where you're going! I've been into boardsports in general for long time and snowboarding for a couple of weekends in all. I got the feeling of the snow now I think and last season I got some really good basics down I think as well. I am ready for some bigger improvements now but still not too fast you know. I also don't want to apologize because of the gear
Anyways I'll stick to the Atlas then!

Btw. have you heard anyone's judgment of the Nitro T1?

I honestly haven't. They have a youtube video where they talk about the board a bit tho.

Its a sintered base so just make sure you wax the hell out of it often.
