Default Union 2014: Contact Pro vs. Atlas

Which one would you choose if you have to choose between these two bindings?

Union 2014 Atlas: http://www.absolute-snow.co.uk/V/Uni...ck_2014-(63051)

Union 2014 Contact Pro: http://www.absolute-snow.co.uk/V/Uni...ck_2014-(62971)

They're supposed to be mounted on a Nitro T1 board from this year. It's a mid flex board.
Maybe it depends on what I'm riding as well and I would say like so many other progressing beginners, all mountain. Mostly park and slopes :-)

It's appreciated! Thanks!

The contact pros are supposed to be geared to Park. With it's lightweight and mini disc. The forces are Unions meat and potatoes do anything binding so I would check those out if I were you.

So you would rather go Force than Atlas?
Shoudn't the Atlas be allround as well?

Not to knowledgable on the Atlas it isn't at my shop, but I believe it's an free ride all mountain binding.

There's definitely people with alot more knowledge that should help ya out.

Yeah. I've been searching on here and google as well but haven't been able to find something about the 2014 models. As far as I can see the Contact Pros have been redesigned a bit and upgraded at some different points so I would really like to get some knowledge about the 2014 models. But yeah I have been searching and reading a lot. Believe me

Thanks anyway!

I see. It's not that I will find any of them bad or wrong if you could say it like that I would just prefer to buy the one that would fit the best you know, especially now I am buying, it's not about spending 50$ more that should make the difference.
I kinda like both and as far as I can read the Atlas is a bit stiffer than the Pros and the weight is almost the same so no worries there.

I actually just found these guys testing the top 3 sellers of Union bindings. I know it's not from this years collection but after reading this I will stick to the Contact Pros. Definitely!
