Default Union Atlas or Union Force?

Hey guys I was thinking about buying new bindings and narrowed down my list of candidates to these two: Union Atlas or Force?

I found two great reviews about them but I can't decide...

What do you guys think?

Buying based on thegoodride's reviews is like using wikipedia as a valid source for dissertations.


Whats your board and riding style?

The reviews just give some more info about them so I thought it was a good source.


I ride a Capita Unorthodox and I don't have a particular style (How do you describe your style?)

I like doing sharp turns and sometimes going fast, sometimes I make jumps but I'm still not ready for the park for my level.

atlas arguably preforms the same as the force. the force is cheaper, and more durable. for me, I would get the forces.

2014 Force to Atlas is very similar. Atlas will be a bit more flexible in the highback. Can't go wrong with either.

And never use The Good Ride for anything. The wikipedia analogy isn't fair to wikipedia.

They are very, very similar bindings. Get which one you like to look at better, they're both solid bindings.

Given your description you should get the force for the savings. You won't know the difference in feel between the two.
