What can a snowboarding binding company accomplish in 7 years? I don't know about the rest, but Union Binding has definitely achieved a lot. How else could they offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY on ALL of their binding bases? The Union Atlas is an evolution in performance. The Stage III Base is made from the highest quality Dupont Zytel nylon. This results in strength, safety, and security... a recipe for confidence. Extruded anodized aluminum heelcups are tried and true after six years on the market. Union heelcups undergo an anodizing process reinforcing the already bombproof apparatus with another 30 percent strength. The shift on the fly forward lean allows you to dial in heelside power. The Union Atlas features all new magnesium buckles. What's the big deal you say? For starters, magnesium is four times stronger than aluminum with only half of the weight. The universal discs leaves your board options wide open. Oh, almost forgot to mention. I hope you love shredding at night because the white one GLOWS in the dark. Let the Union Atlas guide you to a higher level of shred.
