Map out the mountain.
Versatile enough to conquer any type of terrain and tough as hell, it's no wonder that the Union Atlas Binding is the clear favorite of team rider Torstein Horgmo. It offers the strength, support, and response needed for him to do everything from greasing huge rails in the streets to stomping triple corks in the backcountry.
Details like magnesium buckles, multi-position straps, and quick-adjust forward lean give the Atlas a high-end feel without costing you more than you paid for your season pass. If you're a rider with a wider stance, the Canted Gas Pedals on the Atlas supply extra leverage for ollie power, as well as allow the ankle and knee joints to be aligned, thus alleviating pain.
The Atlas highback eliminates highback bite for improved comfort and is cored-out to minimize weight without sacrificing response. Injected-EVA bushings dampen vibrations for a smooth ride. An extruded 3D aluminum heelcup reduces weight while maintaining strength and stiffness, and the Stage III Duraflex ST Atlas baseplate makes minimal contact with your board to eliminate dead zones in the board's flex beneath your feet. The SonicFuse ankle strap provides a secure and responsive fit without creating painful pressure points, and the toe strap is low-profile and cored-out to wrap around the front of your boot for a comfy and secure fit.

Stiff for those who go BIG
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
After having the guys at C3 come by (Capita, Union and 686) I was sold on their new lineup this year. I've had a pair of contact pro's for years and will most likely be upgrading to some of these to pair of with a stiffer pow/freeride board - still TBD. Just bought my pass to Snowbird so gotta make those big purchases one step at a time.
This binding has everything one needs to go big (or go home). When I took a look at these the other week it is evident to see how light, stiff and bomber this bindings are. Asymmetrical highback, reinforced hourglass shape straps (high ankle and toe), canted footbed for a natural and comfortable feel, strong ass EVA foam, magnesium buckles and high-grade plastic straps (best plastic that DuPont produces... no cutting costs here because Union doesn't do that sh**).
Looking forward to putting these through the wringer this year!
Don't call it a come back

Back by popular demand the Atlas has returned as a refined staple to the Union collection. This binding has not only been tried and true to the "do everything" binding but it's also Torstein Horgmo go to binding. With the Canted foot bed, sonic fused ankle strap, Atlas Asym highback, 3d extruded aluminum heel loop and magnesium rackets it is no wonder this binding is tough as shit and is valued second to none. This binding will take you anywhere and can do anything. Look no further because the all mountain destroyer has returned!
