No filler, just killer.
The lightweight, responsive, and gimmick-free Union Atlas Binding wastes no space on useless bells and whistles—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.
- Lightweight, progressively flexing Multizone highbacks deliver reliable heelside control without causing calf bite or compromising tweakability
- Atlas III aluminum/Zytel nylon baseplate reduces the contact area on your board's topsheet to minimize the 'dead zone' under your bindings
- Dual-density bushings under the baseplate dampen impact forces and improve your board's natural flex
- Magnesium buckles are lighter and stronger than traditional aluminum
- Open toe straps for secure grip either over the top or around the front of your boots
- 3D Direct Connect ankle straps for a secure, plush fit with no pressure points
- Quick-adjust forward lean for tool-free tweaks on the fly
- Universal disc is compatible with all binding mounting patterns and allows fine-tuned stance adjustments

I really like All-Mountain riding but also like to do hits in the park. No rails and such. Are these better for that type of application or will the Forces be the better option?
Both the Force and the Atlas are great options for doing EVERYTHING. I ride both and there is nothing you can't do with these bindings. The Atlas will be a bit lighter too.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Super smooth action quick in and out. Fits secure nice padding around ankle. Quality build, not fancy but who cares.
Amazing Bindings - A+ All Around
These bindings are amazing all around. They have super responsive flex, and absorb every impact. They look super bad-ass in the Matte Stone White finish, and I knew they were the best bindings the first time I rode them. The only complaint I had with them is the highbacks, which were too vertical for my boots, but with some amazingly simple adjustments, they were good to go. I would recommend these to everyone I could.
Do you guys ship Union to Canada?

Unfortunately we cannot ship Union products outside of the US.
very nice binding
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have Burton Cartels, pretty nice although I'm thinking the mediums are slightly too roomy for my size 8 boot (Burton Ions). I bought the Union Atlas after reading the review on TheGoodRide.com. I am very happy. I got the size small and the fit seems perfect for my boots. I rode the Atlas 6 days straight at Whistler and they were really, really nice. Mostly on a Jones Mountain Twin (great combo) but also had one day on a Custom X (channel board, used $10 conversion kit). Regardless of board, these bindings felt great. I had heard the toe ratchet was always sticky on Unions and that the toe strap was no good. I must disagree - if you can't operate the toe ratchet you must be mentally challenged. And, using the traditional "on top" position for the toe strap the fit was secure and stayed put all day. In short, these have replaced my Cartels (which were just fine btw) and I highly recommend the Atlas.
what size binding for a size 8.5 thirty...
what size binding for a size 8.5 thirty two boot. Also, will these be ok in the park?
I would go M/L if I were you. That way you aren't maxing out the bindings in S/M to fit your boot. As for the park, yes, these bindings are great park bindings. They might be a bit too stiff for someone who's really lightweight or is just a jib kid but for anyone trying to kill the whole park, they are amazing.
Don't Question Me, Get These!
I am really loving these bindings! Flex and response are perfect! I am wearing a 9.5 boot and got these in the M/L and they fit perfect. Only reason why I am not giving 5 stars is because they have the quick release button on the ankle strap but not the toe strap, I wish it were on both.
Atlas super pro
I have the Atlas Super Pro's as seen in the OG photo up above. Essentially the same binding, aside from highback. These and the Force are by far my favorite bindings out there. They literally do it all. You can terrorize the terrain park on slushy spring days, gape out the groomers and punish powder---whatever you want to do, the Atlas will allow. Lightweight and durable is the name of the game and the cap/strap toe is sick IMO. I know some people don't like it but it fits my boot profile fine as a cap without any slippage. Highly recommended.
Stoked on everything but the cap/strap
Super responsive from toe to heel, plenty of flex in the park when and where you need it, light, tough as nails, and super comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the cap/strap is kind of a joke, it slips up on my toe when being worn as a cap no matter how I adjust it. I think the older design was actually better. Other than the strap issue its gold.

i have a lobster jib board 151. i wear a size 10 boot. what size binding you think i should get?
With a size 10, the larger size will probably fit you better. If you're looking to do mostly jibbing, the Union Contact could be another binder right up your ally as well!
Best Bindings Ever?!?!
Definitely very light and responsive as far as performance is concerned. Had the Rome Boss 360 prior to these... I like these only slightly better. I like how the Boss 360s were canted, these aren't. Otherwise I would've given these bindings a 5 star rating. BTW, the metallic blue is awesome!!!

I got Burton ION size 10.5 should i go for the M/L or the L/XL?
I would go with the L/XL and put the binding to the smallest setting.
I ride 9.5 in Burton boots and the M/L fit just perfect, so you are really going to want those L/XL.
the atlas' are almost identical to the 2013 superpro's (pro model) with the exception of different highbacks and colors. SO SICK.
Will an L/Xl fit my mutant size 14 boot?
Will an L/Xl fit my mutant size 14 boot?
the sizing chart says the bindings go to size 14..//
After some minor adjustments I got my size 15 Ride boots to fit. Amazing bindings!
just wondering why you guys are the only...
just wondering why you guys are the only ones to have this binding in s/m. everyone else only has them in m/l and l/xl. Do they actually come in s/m
They do actually come in S/M. I was in my local shop the other day asking and this is the only male Union binding that comes in S/M. I'm not sure why but they definitely do. I hope this helps :)
@ miya. Thank you. It does going to be ordering them this weekend. Cant wait to ride 'em. Loved my last pair of data's
how shiny are the blue ones?
how shiny are the blue ones?
They are pretty shiny. They look amazing though.
Great all-around binding!
This binding is super responsive and also very light! It is an all new design, some what similar to the Force binding. It is very light, and has very good flex to it! It makes for a good all-mountain binding, or even a great park shredding binding! It is very fun to strap into!
I am trying to decide between these and...
I am trying to decide between these and the Union Contact Pro's. Which is better for all mountain riding and riding in the trees?
I would go with the Atlas. Check out the 2012 reviews below.
Thats a great question! They both have there pros and cons. The contact pros are Gigi Rufs, pro model, and he rides back country powder all day long! They are super light, and very flexible! If your looking for a lil bit more stiffness, and lil bit more response, then the Atlas are for you! So If you want all-mountain, and tree riding, either one is a good choice.
