All-Mountain stiff binding made for everything!

I tested the product on the slopes while carving and in deep powder conditions. A nice feature is that you can turn the highback to align with your heel edge, I did this on the front binding and it made a huge difference. This meant I could lean in even more on the front foot while carving and it made riding even more controlled on big speeds. The straps are very comfortable and with the use of rubber really stick on your boots without any trouble, you can also adjust them without tools and the new Atlas bindings solved this very well with an adjuster that almost looks like a screwdriver and is integrated into every strap. I tested the bindings also in powder and they held up without a problem, if your boots are also stiff they complement each other very good, this means you get an instant reaction on your turns. All-in-all this gives you a stable and controlled ride all over the mountain, whether you like carving, pow-slashes or jumps.
In conclusion I am happy with my binding because it works in every situation and it supports my way of riding all over the mountain without me worrying about it. I would recommend the Atlas to a more advanced rider looking for a stiffer binding.
