Durable All-Mountain Binding
Union Atlas

If you’re a bigger rider, rocking a ridge at speed with these bindings will be awesome. The Union Atlas snowboard bindings have a stiff flex that transfer your movements almost real-time to a stiffer board. It’s a performance binding–that can also match medium boards–for snowboarding backcountry powder, charging passes and butters and tight carving at nice velocity.

Even though it has a really stiff base plate, the new Atlas bindings have a slightly highback. That makes it more compatible with a medium flex board, allowing you to make a match that creates a more versatile marriage between responsiveness that can charge powder, while shock absorption that can help in the half-pipe.

The Atlas might not have as much response as the Union, but the dampness that it has as a consequence makes it just a wee bit more versatile.
