Dennis K: Union bindings fit my sz11 imperial and driver x perfect. Carcinoma highbacks and 8 stiffness for the price was great. Dec 10, 2013
Craig H asked: I ride all over the mountain with my never summer cobra board and I am looking to get some new union bindings.
I can't decide between the Atlas, Factory, and Charger. Any advice on the big differences?

Matt GStaff: PART 2 of 2

If you line up the bindings side by side, you'd hardly notice a difference unless you looked really close. Check out the some of the biggest differences below:

Union Charger Snowboard Bindings:

First off they come in a really rad reusable box with a soft shell and zippers. The Carbon Highback is stiffer but has less adjustability at the connection points with the baseplate. The Ankle Strap is absolutely flawless - it's 3D molded to fit any boot, it's plush, and has a rubberish type grip on the part that touches the boots. Lastly the footbed design is similar to that of the Atlas but it has softer (55 durometer rating) EVA cushioning in the heel.

Union Atlas Snowboard Bindings:

The Symmetrical Highback are the softest of the group. The Ankle Strap resembles the Factories, but it is a little more narrow, and the Footbed is similar to the Charger but the heel EVA is a little firmer (65 durometer rating).

Union Factory Snowboard Bindings:

The Highback is softer than the Charger but stiffer than the Atlas. The Ankle Strap is plush and is a little wider than the Atlas'. The 2.5 degree Canted Footbed has the most EVA cushioning off all three bindings.

Overall all of the bindings would be great, they're very similar. If you're on a budget the Atlas Bindings would be your best choice, other than that get the Chargers. I love the Chargers Carbon Highback and, like I wrote before, the Ankle Strap is flawless.

I hope that helps!

Craig H: Thanks Matt.

Are the canted beds only on the factory bindings? Jan 6, 2014
Matt GStaff: From what the product pages say and from my resources at Union, yes the Factory is the only binding with a canted footbed. Jan 6, 2014
Matt GStaff: PART 1 of 2

Hi Craig,

It looks like you chose some really great all mountain bindings.

The Union Charger Snowboard Bindings, along with the Factory, and Atlas are very similar. These are some of the key features that they ALL feature: Stage III Atals Base, Dupont Zytel ST Base material (Charger has Carbon-Injected & the Factory is Raw - no color added), Shift-on-the-fly Forward Lean, EVA Bushings, 3D Direct-Connect Strap System, Magnesium Buckles, All-New Toe Buckle System, Universal Discs, Grade 8.8 Hardware, All-New Toe Cup Design, and a Lifetime Warranty on the Base.

Olda S asked: Is it truly working with burton channel s. ? Is it feel same as burton binings ? Jan 15, 2014

Matt GStaff: The Union Charger Snowboard Bindings will work with the Channel System if you have the Union M6 Channel Discs (we're sold out of them).

Will the Chargers feel the same as Burton bindings? No, they're Unions.

A shopper asked: Chargers vs. mc metafuse? Oct 15, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: That's a pretty good question. The answer boils down to how lightweight or responsive you want the bindings to be. The Union Chargers Snowboard Bindings are the most responsive binders in the Union line and the Metafuse Bindings are the lightest weight.

I'd go with the Chargers.
