Description

The Union Atlas Binding is an all-mountain legend, redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up to deliver the performance you've come to expect from the Atlas, and then exceed your expectations. Union aren't messing around with the Atlas this year, giving it their strongest ever baseplate combined with all-new Vaporlite High Density bushings for an ultra smooth ride with lightning fast response, plus all new straps, a brand new highback, and a tough aesthetic that you'd find on high tech, top secret military hardware. Favoured by pro riders Kazu Kokubo and Arthur Longo, the high flying, hard charging, super stylish all mountain duo of the Union team, the Atlas is one binding that can withstand the pressure of the worlds best riders, and allow them to keep pushing the limits in-resort and out.


Key Features


Binding Type:


Flex:


Board Compatibility:

This Union binding comes with a Universal Disk, compatible with 2x4, 4x4, and channel binding mounting systems.


Baseplate:

Stage VII 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.


Highback:

Atlas Duraflex CB Highback

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.


Buckles:

Magnesium Ratchets

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.


Straps:

Exoframe 3.0 Ankle Straps + TS-3.0 Ultragrip Wide Toe Straps

This year the Atlas has been upgraded with freshly designed brand new Exoframe 3.0 and TS-3.0 straps, which 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.


Cushioning:

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.


Additional Features:

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.

Canting:

The footbed of this binding is angled to better align your joints and provide a more natural feeling, less fatiguing ride.
