The 2022 Union Atlas Binding has become one of the most sought after bindings in the recent years from both amateur to pro riders alike. The chosen binding of Union pro Arthur Longo, the Atlas provides him with exactly what is needed when he is riding on the resort, or in the backcountry. The Duraflex baseplate was specifically designed to be able to withstand huge impact and the Vaporlite HD bushing provide all the dampening and impact absorption you would ever need in a binding. Couple that with a mid-stiff highback and incredibly supportive ankle and toe straps, and you will be able to feel the difference your bindings can make and understand why the Atlas is the trusted, chosen model by some of the best snowboarders in the world.
Binding Type: All Mountain
Flex: 8/10 (Stiff)
Board Compatibility: Camber Disk + Washer, compatible with all 4x4, 4x2 and Channel insert systems.
Stage 7 Duraflex CB
The all new Stage VII Duraflex CB baseplate was engineered to be the strongest baseplate Union has ever created. Featuring ultra-responsive Duraflex CB Nylon, this baseplate is lightweight and near-indestructible, perfect for Unions most aggressive and punishing riders.
Atlas Duraflex CB
An all new icon in the snowboarding world, the Atlas highback isn't just a pretty face. This super light, stiff, streamlined design has been refined to seamlessly connect with your boot and allow free lateral movement so you can tweak the hell out of your grabs and presses.
Magnesium 3.0 with Aluminium Base
A construction process completely unique to Union allows them to make their ratchets out of Magnesium, resulting in a product that is 4 times stronger than aluminium while being half the weight. Not only that, it's easily recycled so the environment benefits too.
Exoframe 3.0 Ankle Strap + TS 2.0 Tiles Toe Strap
These straps were specifically designed to provide the security and comfort you'd expect from the Atlas but with reduced weight, materials, and a better boot to binding connection with none of the elastic stretching found in regular straps.
Vaporlite HD Bushings
The Vaporlite bushing system sets a new standard for how a snowboard binding should function and perform. These bushings use an injection moulding process (similar to the way plastic parts are created) making them more waterproof, durable, and precise than any other EVA material on the market. This is next level binding tech that absorbs chatter like no other while maintaining the natural flex of your board, and the new High Density version increases stiffness and response while still maintaining the same dampening characteristics.
Extruded 3D Aluminium Heelcups:
This heelcup increased the stiffness of the binding, increases response, and is adjustable to help you dial in the perfect fit.
Classic Forward Lean Adjuster:
No tools needed for this one, just flick the tab down and slide the panel for more response or a looser feeling ride on the fly.
Grade 8.8 Hardware:
Union ensure their hardware is reliable by using the strongest steel available on the market.
Tool-less strap adjust:
Whether you're letting a friend borrow your bindings or you just need to fine tune your fit, you can adjust your straps on the fly without the need for tools.
The footbed of this binding is angled to better align your joints and provide a more natural feeling, less fatiguing ride.
