    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.

    • Tough and aggressive all-terrain binding
    • Stiffer flex for support and response
    • Rugged base is virtually indestructible
    • Injected bushings reduce chatter
    • Low-profile baseplate allows true board flex
    • Sonicfuse straps provide seamless fit
    • Magnesium buckles are light and strong

    Great!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I could not be happier with these bindings, no complaints at all. These make me feel more connected to my board than any I've had before and I find myself riding out of landings I would have previously wrecked in. No slippage when ratcheting down and no pressure points when snug. The canted bases give more pop, but it's not something you really notice. The construction feels very solid and the straps are designed for quick-ins. They definitely make me feel like a stronger rider.

    I've always heard Union makes the best and now I won't ride anything else.

    I'll never ride another brand!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am completely sold on Union Bindings and the Atlas is incredible!! I've been riding Burton Custom and Cartels for the last four years and recently switched to Union Factory's and now Union Atlas and I will never go back! These bindings are the do it all, comfortable, end all of bindings! Easily adjustable, comfortable ankle strap, money toe strap that doesn't slip, and a cush footbed that can handle any impact. My only complaint is that the ankle strap bolt does loosen, but I just check it every once in a while and it's good to go. Do no hesitate to buy these robust, light, do it all bindings!!

    Great quality

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Atlas is super customizable, responsive, and comfy. Materials are top notch, and the straps and clips are bomber.

    This binding really wins out because i was able to customize it to my weird feet/boots better than other brands and models (specifically Now Drives). I was able to play around with these and dial in the fit to where I felt way more locked in than the Nows and Burtons I've tried. Sticking with union for sure.

    Charge!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Coming off of Burton's Custom Re:Flex's, I immediately noticed the difference in quality––I'm pretty sure I could run these over with a truck and they'd be fine. That being said, Union has somehow managed to keep these pretty light! No clunkiness to speak of at all.

    As for their performance... well, as promised, they do just about everything. In my opinion, though, these things shine best when I'm charging down the mountain. They're very responsive and make me feel truly locked-in to my board, which is important when I'm clocking in at Mach II, but they're also extremely comfortable and absorb chatter and impacts (from jumps) quite well.

    Dialing them in to fit me "just right" took me the better part of an hour, but once I had it set, I knew it had been time well spent. For anyone who likes jumps and a bit of tricking, but mainly wants to carve hard and charge fast––look no further.

    Response without a locked in feel

      When I started caring about my bindings and wanted a new pair I grabbed the Burton Cartels. I heard they were a very popular medium stiff binding for the type of riding I do. I hated them. The ankle straps didn't allow my boot to flex at all and I felt like my 32 TM-TWOs were ski boots. I shyed away thinking that's what a stiff binding felt like and got a softer pair (The Union STs). I really liked them and decided I try their stiffer binding (The Atlas). They're amazing. Very responsive and comfortable while still allowing the boot to flex so you can keep your riding loose nimble without that locked in feel. I'm probably going to get another pair for my other board.

      Union Kills It Again!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have owned various pairs of unions, contacts, chargers, forces and now these! I was looking for something that was a little more stiff but would still flex well when I wanted them to. I have been thoroughly impressed with these bindings (Union in general). I have these on my Arbor Element and they paired really well with the board! I have noticed not as much leg fatigue in at the end of a long day on the slopes. The straps are completely customizable to fit your boot, I have the Vans Infuse and they work really well together. If you are looking to step up your game and want something a little more aggressive but still want something for all around riding these bindings are going to surprise you!

      Charger Binding!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I recently got these bindings for my all mountain/powder board because I wanted something stiff, that would provide plenty of support. I've only had he opportunity to use them a few days but so far so good! They are some of the stiffer bindings in Unions line (7/10 stiffness) which is great for dropping cliffs and charging through chunder. As a all Union Bindings, they seem to be super durable and a expect they will last a long time. I'd highly recommend these binding to someone looking for a durable/stiff all-mountain binding!

      Fantastic!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Union really knows how to make a great binding. These are easily my favorite I have ever owned. The way they hold my boots in the binding is more comfortable than bindings I've had in the past. And they have such good rigidity, it really is a noticeable difference in handling.

      Amazing bindings

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I am by no means an expert boarder, but after two seasons of renting boards and trying different equipment I decided to get my own gear. Was hesitant on getting the Atlas as there are cheaper bindings. With that said...wow...amazing bindings. Solid feeling and with my neversummer board I was plowing through fresh deep powder. Straight groomed runs were easy and felt very connected with the board. If you are on the fence about purchasing these, just go for it, you won't regret it.

      Have not used them yet

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I just got these to replace my 2015 Union Forces. Unfortunately, the resorts are not open yet and I have not gotten to ride them, but my initial impressions from setting them up and playing them are that the feel and operate like they are the flagship binding of Union.

      The high back is much stiffer than the Force high backs when you twist them.
      The ratchets feel solid, well built, and smooth when I ratchet them in to the strap. Some ratchets can feel like they are snagging or getting off track and slipping, not these.
      The footbed having the slight slope to accommodate your knees is very subtle. If I didn't know it was there, I probably wouldn't notice just by looking at them. That is not to say that it won't be nice to have when I spend a long first-chair pow day at the mountain, it's just not very pronounced.

      Flagship Binding

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The Union Atlas are the flagship binding from the Union line, and has all the bells and whistles. The Stage III baseplate is made from Duraflex, one of the lightest but strongest plastics out there. Don't worry about plastic, this stuff is tougher than your Grandpa's old man strength. It also has canted gas pedals to alight your knees and hips for a more natural feel, and I really like that feature compared to some other Union bindings in the line. If you are looking for a medium-stiff binding for the whole mountain, this is the binding for you.
