Union Atlas Review.

Hey everyone. After a week on the new Union Atlas we posted up a review on Geeks of Shred. Cliff notes: my first pair of Unions and I'm really impressed. Good attention to detail, light and strong. Binding is responsive, but underfoot cushioning dampens a good deal of chatter. The two biggest highlights for me are the highback (nice torsional flex, good heelside response) and the ankle strap (which is amazing.)
Check out the full review if you are in the market for new bindings. Union Atlas Bindings Review Geeks of Shred!

thanks for the review. i just picked up a pair of the atlas last week, this is my first pair of unions...although i havent had a chjance to ride them...with the heelcup adjustment, i left mine alone, i have the lg/xl, and it looked to be a fine distance for the boot...with the toe straps im having a problem getting them to be centered on the boot...any advice to make it work? and any other advice to dial in my binding to my board? i guess i wont really know till i ride it for the first time

ok, my quick setup guide to the bindings. Its easier to set up them up before mounting them to the snowboard. If the boot sits in the binding with equal amounts of toe and heel overhang you're good. don't mess with the heel cup. The toe strap and its ladder have two settings underneath the binding. you have to play with both to see which one works. The final bit is to rotate the highback if you're into that. I find it makes things more comfortable for me.
Union has absolutely outstanding videos on youtube showing how to adjust their bindings. Its worth checking out. good luck, and enjoy. I'll be interested to see how you like the bindings.
