The 2022 Union Atlas snowboard bindings have been redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up but they remain the go-to all-mountain binding that you know and love.
The all-new Stage 7 Duraflex CB baseplate is Union's strongest and most responsive base ever using a new layering system, the key ingredient of which is ultra-responsive Duraflex CB nylon. The layering system also features the all-new High Density Vaporlite bushing, which is stiffer and more responsive while providing high levels of vibration dampening.
The Atlas features all-new toe and ankle straps. The new TS-3.0. Ultragrip Wide toe strap uses the same anti-slip material that form fits to any boot but is now wider than ever for more security. The Exoframe 3.0 is a brand new shape that is lighter than previous versions of the Exoframe straps but retains the performance and support you need while remaining super durable.
The redesigned highback is made from the same Duraflex CB nylon as the base and has been reshaped, resulting in a stiffer highback and a more responsive ride.
The heelcup is made from 3D Extruded Aluminium Heelcup, this gives amazing strength to weight ratio and features the same lifetime warranty as the baseplate keeping you fully covered.
Union's tool-less strap adjustment allows you to fix your bindings on the fly and dial in that perfect fit when you're out in the mountains. Plus the Magnesium buckles are 4 times stronger than aluminium without adding to the overall weight for super smooth and speedy entry and exit.
The Atlas combines Union's strongest ever baseplate with new bushings, a stiffer highback and responsive, supportive straps to produce the go-to binding for professional snowboarders, such as Kazu Kokubo and Arthur Longo.

Excellent & more responsive alternative to Burton Cartel
This is the second pair of Union Atlases I bought, as I was so impressed with my first pair. They are replacing well used Burton P1s and Cartels. They give the good all day comfort of the Burtons but with much better response. They're not as adjustable though. These are an excellent binding for any medium to stiff board - I can't fault them.
Excellent service , quick and efficient, I would use and recommend absolute snow in the future

Good all round binding.
Been riding 16 years now age 42. I ride everything on the hill with a crew that really tear up the mountain. Twinned with Jeremy Jones Mountain Twin these bindings are really solid. Coming off some Burton CO2's which got stolen, I guess I would still be riding the Burton's be it for the theft. It might have been the board to some extent but I really felt confident for the first time in years riding this setup. Bindings can be cranked very tight and two months on my left foot still hasn't got all the feeling back on the top so be careful when ratcheting down, you can get carried away. Slightly more flex than the CO2's but thats OK as I have a lot of experience and suited my riding style off piste in half metre pow, blasting the piste and easy jumping about in the trees. All in all as a new binding I would recommend, but snowboarding is very subjective and fickle. I do not hit parks so can not comment on big air or rails.
Lightweight but rock solid. Really simple adjustments and set up to get the fit perfect. Ratchets are fast and positive, easy release. I love these bindings from run 1. Currently riding with an evil twin. Definitely recommend these bindings to anyone
