The Atlas is built with durability and unmatched precision for advanced all-mountain riders, which is why it's the top choice of Union pro riders Kazu Kokubo and Arthur Longo. This binding features the all new Exoframe Ankle Straps to provide comfort and strength for long days days riding tough terrain, and canted gas pedals for increased leverage and reduced knee pain. The ridged Stage 3 Duraflex base and the lightweight Atlas Highback work together to create the perfect blend of response and energy for powerful turns, while still having the flex and lateral movement you need for tweaking grabs. If you're looking for a stiffer all-mountain/freestyle binding that kills it in the park and in backcountry pow, the top selling Union Atlas is the way to go.
Universal Disk - Compatible with 4x4, 4x2, and Channel mounting inserts, Union disks are bombproof and uses the highest grade materials to insure the strongest connection between you and your board.
Minimal Base Contact = True Board Flex - It's a simple fact - the larger your binding's baseplate, the more effect it has on the way your board flexes. Union baseplates are designed to provide supreme strength with the smallest footprint possible, crucially reducing interference with a board's true flex.
Once bindings are mounted they create dreaded "Dead Zones"- areas under the baseplates where your board won’t flex. With this in mind, all Union bindings are designed to promote a free, even board flex for sweeter response, better board control, and improved durability.
Lifetime Warranty on Baseplate and Heel Cup - Covered under manufacturer lifetime guarantee against breakage of the baseplate or heelcup along with defects in materials or workmanship. This lifetime warranty DOES NOT cover broken bindings due to abuse or neglect, damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility, or lost parts due to lack of hardware maintenance.
Highbacks, straps, ratchets and other components are covered under Union's 1 Year Warranty.
Atlas Highbacks - Super lightweight, streamlined design provides a seamless boot interface with complete lateral freedom for maximum tweakage.
Quick Flip Forward Lean Adjustment - Zero out your highback lean for mellow cruising or park laps, or crank it up a notch for those high speed assaults when you need extra leverage and board control. Easy adjustment allows you to customize your highback lean on the fly.
Exoframe Ankle Straps - Independent suspension and support create a seamless interface. This super cushioned and lightweight design comfortably holds you in, but won't hold you back.
Tool-Free Ankle/Toe Strap Adjustments - No screwdrivers needed here. Simply flip the adjusters by hand to fine-tune your fit.
Ultra Grip™ Toe Strap - Redesigned to feature multi-positional options with an open, Ultra Grip toe to keep your foot locked in.
Magnesium Ratchets - This Union exclusive process produces a material 4 times the strength of aluminum with only 1/2 the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet.
Size-Proportionate Fiberglass Index - Bigger riders require stiffer bindings. Union proportionally increases the fiberglass content in each size of their bindings so that any rider who straps in will have perfect support.
Stage III Atlas Duraflex Baseplate - Duraflex material provides increased base stiffness and durability, while the construction blends carbon and nylon to cut weight and extend the life of the product.
Extruded 3D Aluminum Heelcups - A new process removes as much excess material as possible in the heelcup to reduce weight while maintaining tried and true strength. Union heelcups undergo an anodizing process reinforcing the already bombproof apparatus with another 30-percent strength. It's serious strength in a streamline package.
Canted Gas Pedals - Ideal for riders who want a wide stance and extra leverage for ollie power. Canting also allows the ankle and knee joints to be aligned, alleviating pain.
Union: 100% Ownership, 100% Focus - Union is 100% devoted to making the best bindings on the planet. From discovering new materials to CNC machining a new baseplate, everything is done in-house with zero outsourcing. Every single piece of a Union binding is completely exclusive to Union.
