It's no wonder the Union Atlas Binding is a favorite of all terrain killer, Torstein Horgmo. Lightweight, responsive, and gimmick free, these bindings waste no space on useless bells and whistles, and every feature from the Multizone highback, to the minimalist baseplate profile, to the dual density padding is fine tuned to improve response, comfort, and board feel. Dope 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. When 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 plus, Vaporlite 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.
