ALL MOUNTAIN LEGEND
Being the preferred binding of Union Pro Riders such as Kazu Kokubo, Arthur Longo and Brandon Cocard, the Atlas upholds Union's strict standards of durability and performance. Upgraded to Durflex CB carbon base material for 19/20.
Updated and improved, the Atlas returns as a refined staple of the Union Binding collection. Duraflex ST Nylon, ExoFrame Straps, and a canted base are just a few of the insane features of this "do everything", all-terrain machine.
Ideal for riders using a wide stance, Canted Gas Pedals on the Atlas supply extra leverage for ollie power. Canting also allows the ankle and knee joints to be aligned, alleviating pain.

UNIVERSAL DISK 4X4, 4X2 AND THE CHANNEL
HIGHBACK: ATLAS - DURAFLEX CB HIGHBACKS
Super lightweight, streamlined design provides a seamless boot interface with complete lateral freedom for maximum tweakage.
(NEW) STRAPS: EXOFRAME 2.0 DIRECT CONNECT W/ HINGE
Redesigned and fine-tuned, the all-new Exoframe 2.0 Ankle strap functions as a suspension system for our feet. Improved comfort, extended durability, and an all-new hinging system that allows for easier entry. Extremely responsive.
(NEW) BASEPLATE: STAGE 3 DURAFLEX CB BASE
Responsive by design, once injected with Duraflex CB, the Stage 3 Atlas base becomes an even stiffer, all mountain ripping machine. Tried and true, this base has a huge fanbase.
HEELCUP: EXTRUDED 3D ALUMINUM HEELCUPS
The rigidity and strength of Extruded Aluminum acts like a roll cage on a race car - stiffening the entire chassis. The male/female connection with the base provides seamless response.
BUSHING: MULTI-DENSITY THERMOFORMED EVA
Multi-Density Thermoformed Bushings sustain their function season after season - unlike competitors who use urethane, rubber or other materials that change color and become brittle over time.
(NEW) TOE STRAP: HEXGRIP W/ SECURE-LOCK
Toe strap adjustment has been redesigned and reinforced with double the connection strength, thanks to the new pin system. Multi-Positional options and thermoplastic anti-slip material keeps you locked in and on point.
BUCKLES: MAGNESIUM RATCHETS
This Union exclusive process produces a material 4 times the strength of aluminum with only 1/2 the weight. Plus magnesium is easily recycled and remains the eighth most abundant element on the planet.
- Our Take: Atlas is not just a god who is tasked with holding up earth. It’s also an aggressive all mountain binding. The Atlas has a canted basetray which helps keep your bones aligned so you can ride longer and more comfortably. It's also very responsive so you know it’s going to be fast, toe to heel, for those aggressive carves. This is very important when getting waist deep in the pow and you need the binder to react fast so you don’t run into trees. The Atlas still has enough freestyle flair to keep those airs clean and stylish.
- Rider Profile: Aggressive All Mountain rider. Top to bottom in all terrain, with any condition. If speed, power, and durability are what you seek, then pray to Atlas for a new set of Union Atlases.
- Inside Scoop: The Cult following of the Atlas is trying to keep it quite so they can keep it to themselves, but we're here to let the world know, this binding is otherworldly.
