The 2021 Union Atlas Kazu Binding is based off Union's best selling Atlas Binding but in the Custom House graphic and a few little tweaked upgrades in the straps for Team Rider Kazu Kokubo. This 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. 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.
This Union binding comes with a Universal Disk, compatible with 2x4, 4x4, and channel binding mounting systems.
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.
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.
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.
FormaLab Ankle Straps + TS-2.0 Hexgrip Toe Straps
The brand new FormaLAB ankle straps and Hexgrip toe straps provide the security and comfort you'd expect but with reduced weight, materials, and a better boot to binding connection with none of the elastic stretching found in regular straps. The HexGrip strap provides security and comfort with reduced weight, materials, and a better boot to binding connection, while the secure-lock system on the toe strap doubles the connection strength, so your bindings are more durable and dependable than ever.
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.
