The Union Atlas has gone under the knife for some nip-tuck for this season, and now coming to the table is the new and improved take on what is fast becoming a classic binder. Carbon additions, new straps and baseplate are what’s in store if you grab a pair of these lil demons.
Union are notorious for making hard wearing and hard-working pieces of kit, and the Atlas lives up to that this year. Union are so sure they’ve created sturdy equipment that they’ve slapped a lifetime guarantee on the baseplate and heelcup.
“The straps are pre-curved and honeycombed so they mould round your boot snug as a bug”
If you’re a fan of fast and hard riding you probably know how important it is to have a supportive highback, and the Atlas has an asymmetric one designed to fit round your boot better. It also has cut-outs throughout, so it mimics a more natural flex pattern.
The straps are pre-curved and honeycombed so they mould round your boot snug as a bug. No pressure points, no extra weight- it’s a win-win.
Foam runs underfoot to give you a little helping hand when you’re bracing for impact, and to keep you riding a bit smoother when the snow gets cruddy and choppy.
The baseplate and the highback both are infused with carbon fibre, because what’s a high-end snowboard product these days without a smidge of carbon? It keeps them light, and retains the strength and stiffness of years gone by.
